As for discussion around loss of performance, probably due to lowering clocks on core and/or memory (probably memory)......what a bag of worms.
This.....people read what they want...even if it's not there.
The article states +3% with new drivers.
It also states they are trying to do something about the power draw load on the pci-e bus
in other words looking for a way to draw less power from pci-e and more power from the 6 pin connector.
They also mention they are going to give you the OPTION of reducing the total power draw of the card
