At least OC makes that easy to do as they can just be posted as fact in the rumor section. Those types of posts were removed rather conveniently in retrospect to the Polaris launch (i wonder if it will mysteriously be changed now). Where could this evidence possibly be considering NV hasnt launched the card. Why the double standards? I havent seen any evidence that is the case, maybe it isnt, but convincing as mainy people of it as possible before launch would sure be a great benefit to them.

Anyway, just some general muzings about something i found interesting. tongue.gif

The RX480 does look pretty good though. NV may not have anything to battle it until a lot of time has passed and what about the AIB cards. biggrin.gif

Probably because if it is faster it is going to be more expensive, and if it is comparable or even slightly slower, it will still be more expensive lol
Sorry AMD

I love that I barely have to do anything to get the max performance out of my 1080 .. installed it, OCed it by pushing a few sliders in Afterburner and quickly checking stability and forgot about it thumb.gif

LOL as if that hasn't been the case since Kepler Tesla or probably even earlier.

Welcome to OCN good sir.

 

Not that there's anything wrong with plug 'n play mind you, but some people still enjoy the hobby of OC'ing as an end in itself rather than simply the means to one.

It seems that the guys on the polaris games has some good news.

http://www.overclock.net/t/1604567/polaris-bios-mod-rx480/180#post_25335023

Someone just hit 1500 stable on fs. Now i am excited to see the custom one.

NV master race optimizations, pay extra $200-$300 to get that old movie stutter effect.

So what's the difference? You folks are angry that Nvidia is making full use of overclocking headroom to give the average user who knows nuts about overclocking the best possible performance? As enthusiasts it's disappointing, sure, but you've got to command Nvidia for this. Unlike a certain other company, Nvidia's rated boosts are ALWAYS exceeded while gaming, while the other company's is the MAX possible boost that throttles downwards when necessary.

Its the marketing i have issues with , 1070 is not faster than 980 ti or Titan X when overclocks are accounted for but its touted as such , 1070 the titan x killer my #$%$. They do that by overclocking it a good degree more compared to previous gen cards aka boost 3.0 out of the box. So apart from the marketing i don't have an issue with this.

Re the boost thing i think it just makes it hard to compare overclocking gains vs amd and nv, i mean typcially because NV overboost by default and they reportedly get less % increase from the oc , i think some of this is due to the fact the default boosting was higher than its reported to be etc but when oc % are reported its against the ref boost statistic nvidia gives which is never real its always higher. Where as with AMD you compare the boost ref to the overclock and you near enough get that % gain or more once you sort the throttling out etc as you know thats the max boost and its likely under if power limited etc.

480 AIB cards will be a good example of this where they stand to gain a LOT of performance, i mean i've read reviews where the card is not holding anywhere near 1266 mhz clocks in 4k .. its like averaging 1160 .. and people are referring to the rops as the primary issue. well if you loose over 100 mhz in 4k off standard boost due to power throttling etc its not exactly all the rop structure is it.

Took me all of a min to find .

http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2016/05/nvidia-gtx-1080-1070-pascal-specs-pricing-revealed/

"the company claims that both cards are significantly faster than its current flagships, the GTX Titan X and GTX 980 Ti, which retail for $1000 (£800) and $650 (£550) respectively"
