For example if you reach 2-2.1 GHz (which is very possible for a founder edtion's card), you get at least 30% on top of its initial performance. That totals to around 70% above GTX 1080.
You can say that you can overclock GTX 1080 too. But due to the high starting clocks and aggressive adaptive overclocking you don't actually net more than 10% additional performance. If all of the above are true, you can have +50-60% of greater performance as compared to GTX 1080 merely by overclocking your Titan X. This in turn would make Titan X (overclocked) the first 4K card (minimum FPS to most games maxed @ 4K > 50FPS)
Can't say I'm not excited, what I can say is that I'll probably not be able to justify that cost to me (or my wife).
Here are three Time Spy links, one with the card underclocked to reach the ~1670MHz
that Computerbase saw as their average clock speed on the air-cooled FE after letting the card heat up, one stock and one overclocked mostly stable run.
Compared to the underclocked result to try and compare it to the FE at stock on air, the score is 26% higher. Compared to the stock one, where it's already running almost 200MHz over the boost clock due to being under water, it's 15%. This is also on stock BIOS and one can expect it to go up once custom BIOS becomes available.
Yeah, the 1080 overclocks itself far beyond the boost clock, mine hovers around 1898MHz and 1911MHz stock, but the Titan would do the same thing, which cuts into the gains you would see when overclocking just the same. GM204 also reaches higher clock speeds than GM200, could very well be the same here that the Titan will fall 50-100MHz behind the 1080 when overclocked.
GTX 1080 is a 8.9TFLOPs card at 1733MHz, the Titan 11TFLOPs. That makes 24%. Let's say that the memory bandwidth brings that up to 30% at stock. Then let's also say that it overclocks a bit better, and maybe we'll have 35% at most when both are overclocked. If you think it'll be 70% you're setting yourself up for a major disappointment.
