Any additional gains through those routes is bragging rights for the 90% of people buying these cards.
So ask yourself if you're apart of that 90% or if you're in the 10% who is after high refresh rates or 4k 60fps maxed out. If you're ok waiting I'd stick it out for the corsair hydro cards, or the MSI SeaHawx or anything with a hybrid cooler really. Those should be the best clocking cards with the least amount of throttling
agreed. Unless one intends to grab the 4k/144Hz/HDR monitors coming Q2 (any day now) or is running three ultrawide QHD monitors like the one guy here (10,400x1440 lol) than one of these, any brand, will do just fine for 99% of people. Even in 4k. In fact, I find 4k/60 is about the same as 1440/120, not 144, that is even harder to produce and harder on the cpu, too.
