If it's true that top chips are binned away for FE, why would EVGA use the same bin for a card that's $90 cheaper?

I'm not saying they're deliberately binning for lower chips, but they could use any and all rejects from the SC and FTW bin and use them on their cheapest model.

You're starting to sound a lot like Jayztwocents btw.

Nah. Needs more cowbell drill sounds.

You're completely right. I don't know why OCN discussions devolve so quickly sometimes; it's like half the people here are just slamming down their fists onto the keyboard, and hitting submit, lol.

You're partly right. But, EVGA only sells just barely overclocked cards. Even the FTW is rated at just 1860MHz boost--I'm sure every GTX 1080 die in existence can hit 1860MHz boost.

So, I don't think the yields are that bad; I just think the yields are very consistent. Hopefully the GTX 1070/1080 threads will start adding statistics (like we do on the Haswell/Skylake overclocking threads).

I'd wager 85% of cards are between 2036MHz and 2101MHz top sustained OC boost on air/water. Wow, a 3% difference. rolleyes.gif

I want to weigh in here. For non-FE, yes, my average (mode) is somewhere around 2,060 MHz based on a sample size of almost 40 units. For FE my average (mode) is 2,150 MHz based on a sample size of 22 units.
