1500-1600 is already pretty much the known quantity for possible high end AIB cards.

Not to mention people havee been zip tying AIO CPU coolers to GPU's since the GTX 480. biggrin.gif

Here is the link

All i'm saying is, I've become all too weary of fake hype on these cards.

So you'll now believe nothing as you can't analyze real info from garbage? Cool.

When did Nvidia have a card clocked at 2300mhz? The only one I know of was 2100mhz.

I don't doubt it, AMD gimped the reference card with that mid 90's heatsink. If i was in the market for mainstream i would boycott this card, lol. They gimped it hard in order to sell a more expensive version later along with AIB's. We have a perfectly good gpu that is held back by power, bad cooling and BIOS limits. They clearly mean to make a non handicapped Polaris GPU hence WattMan, price of entry 300 bucks.

Oh, I can. But not everyone can, which is why the "OMGZ IT DOESN'T BEAT A 980 TI FAILLLZZZZZ" comments are present.

And the one i'm referring to was the one they used on stage. Remember? 2300 at 68 on air? Average card?

Lol go watch the video again, it was 2100mhz wheee.gif

Yet I'm the one that has to remember rolleyes.gif

You have to remember that AMD is not the one that gains with AIB surcharges. So saying that they gimped reference boards so that they can make more money with AIBs is kind of senseless.

they had to hit a certain price window guys.


If there are any complaints, it should be about its TDP which seems out of place. Its a great, great cheap card otherwise.

Actually, it's better to not believe anything. if some people even try to speculate saying lots of IF, some fake hypers start hyping and believing that as absolute truth.

that's why we have a situation like this. next time, nuke every freaking shed of hope you see and ban those fud/wccf like cancer sites. that will do good for everyone.

I stand corrected. The stage demo was indeed at 2100. It was the fanboys who started claiming that 2300+ should be easily attainable. Which again, reiterates my original point.

lol you guys are so predictable. We heard the same arguments with Fury X.
"Just wait. New drivers will make it shine"
"Unlocked BIOS will make it overclock much better"

I feel sorry for those that bought in to your advice then too. Because Fury X is still a poor overclocker and newer drivers didnt make it superpowerful over a year after release.
