Yeah but man, isn't this thing completely beast compared to 980 TI? I'm actually seeing a 60% improvement compared to my 980 Ti @ 1500 MHz core / 8 GHz memory. That's insane. It's basically as fast as 980 Ti SLI at 1200 MHz at default clocks (1850, but actually 1080 Ti is faster in this comparison by 3-5 FPS if you watch closely) and probably as fast as 980 Ti SLI at 1350-1400MHz at 2025Mhz:
Well you went from +120 and 70C sounding like a hair drier to +162 and being whisper quiet! Congratulations.
To be honest, I don't care if this vbios never get's unlocked, the performance with it the way it is is phenomenal.
yeah, I 'm totally good now. Happy happy. This card looks so beast and now Im always gaming somewhere in the 60s quietly with 2Ghz+ steady. For my OCD gaming at 2025 or so seems so much better than 1961 or so lol. that 2Ghz mark is a killer mentally if you end up on the wrong side of it lol.

i'd say that is better than average. Average is about +100-120. some can hold +135, others +150. Very few are holding higher than that.
