Clocks don't tell the whole story. Possible a 2100Mhz custom card = a 2150MHz FE card in benchmarks.

I do hear a lot that FE cards clock pretty good, considering the weaker pcb and single 8pin connector.

Another thing Nvidia possibly did with the FE card's pcd was add or tune some chip( eg, PWM frequency?), and custom card makers don't know about it. Just speculating, I don't know or have the tech knowledge about it.

Just glad my custom card benches around 2150MHz with high mem clocks, ofcourse it's on water.

how exactly ?


theres eventual diminishing returns with higher clock core (and a too high memory OC can cost you some fps too), but that doesnt mean FE has some magic where it can make up for 50 Mhz out of nothing

Same way as when some one posts I got 2200MHz on my card, but it benches like 2100 or even less. Could be the bios, pcb components that are more or less efficient.

I take it with a grain of salt when someone says I got X overclock on my card until I see a benchmark run.

But since when did just a few points did we take that as actual fact and making assum... nvm.

Since we have such a nice "large" member base who are willing to purchase the latest and greatest thing. With that we can find out after XXXX FE's get reported their max OC we can find out the avg, and same goes for ABP 1080s.

I mean really these days the forum's rules seems to change with every GPU launch.

Exact opposite is true, FE cards are performing slightly higher clock for clock. I've mentioned this already, we're putting together more data before publishing results.

seems like FE has a slight use outside of price gauging after all wink.gif

Put it this way - I'm personally buying Founders Editions at a premium of nearly $ 100 over custom cards in South Africa. Higher clock speed + greater efficiency + not dumping heat inside my case with two CPUs giving off 200w a piece = no contest.

I Wander how the evga SC card stacks up since it's technically the same as a FE edition card? Can anyone confirm?
