I just had a look at a couple of 2011-3 boards and they don't have them.

It does make sense. Like they did with 290 and 6950. Just look at the ratio of 4GB vs 8GB cards in sale. Its like 1/10. No reason for them to make a different SKU and save $10.

Over 1000 in 1-2 days is tremendous.

By comparison, iirc, the 1080 only managed to sell 1000 in its first month.

This will take big marketshare back for AMD.

No, but they are included for a reason. If you step out of spec you may be pulling beyond the max safe load on the 3x18 awg 12v inputs on the 24pin connector.

I have seen melted 24 pin connectors in quad GPU rigs.

Interesting, but not quite convinced no offense. Is ram that cheap?

I hope so, they need it desperately.

60% isn't fast enough for me to spend $250 on another card. I only had the 380x for 8 months, too. I aim for a card that is 2x or faster than my previous. In the case of my 380x, anything slower than a 980 Ti is not worth upgrading to, in my opinion.

I'm not swimming in cash like you lot. I can't just go out and buy a card that I will only use for around half a year and buy another.

This where I only see issues possibly starting to happen, I think a single, dual and triple setups will be fine. If you are doing quad or maybe even triple gpus then you would probably take the necessary precaution anyways and have a board that can supply the extra needed current. What I am getting at though a board running one or two of these gpus probably isnt even going to flinch at the extra load considering it can handle so much more.

Just ordered a used 980ti for less than 300 euro after looking at rx480 performance.Let's hope previous owner is not an oc member and the card dead from ocing ph34r-smiley.gif
