    $649.99 ..... I guess they are going for the kill.

    I love how the B3D benchmark on techreport with the random texture shows the effects of color compression. Surprised to see how it has such a big impact, and how it differs from the 780Ti.

    (I'll never be able to claim anymore that GPUs are never released at CES or Computex.)

    Hell yes, time for the 7970GhzEd to "trickle down" to my brother; it's OC'd 980Ti time! Look at those overclocking results too, so nice.

    Funny, It Worked Last Time...
    I've ordered a GTX 980 Ti to replace my GTX 680. Now to wait for some more G-sync monitor goodness to be reviewed by tftcentral.co.uk so I can make a choice finally.

    Yes, even if only for a bit of a price drop on a GeForce :)

    Surely 980 Ti is a great overclocker and a very fast gaming card. I'm itching to upgrade myself but waiting few more weeks is a logical choice (though waiting is killing me :))

    GTX 980 Ti Classified Kingpin

    EVGA GTX 980 Ti Classified Kingpin Edition comes with a 15-phase VRM and a new cooler which uses a full copper heatsink connected to the base via 8mm heatpipes and cooled by two 100mm fans. The new graphics card also comes with a full cover backplate.

    The VRM needs two 8-pin and one 6-pin PCI-Express power connectors and with such specifications we are quite sure that the factory-overclock will be quite impressive as well, making it one of the fastest Geforce GTX 980 Ti on the market.

    Wow.
    "With GPU Gauntletâ„¢ Sorting, the Gigabyte SOC graphics card guarantees the higher overclocking capability in terms of excellent power switching."
    Huh, so if binning was used, that would partially explain those amazing results. http://www.gigabyte.us/products/product-page.aspx?pid=5472#ov
    It seems Hilbert has his system open, so that helps with cooling. I guess all reviewers benchmark that way, but I think it's worth remembering.
    Very informative review. It would be even better if the charts included other, elite, custom cards, but today is this cards chance to shine so I understand that choice.

    Kudos to Gigabyte for extracting all that theoretical performance and making it useable. Great job by Hilbert in demonstrating this. Very impressive piece of kit. It might end up helping to define the limits of this generation's single gpu performance potential.

    Nice card. Would be nice to see a full GM200 get the same treatment. I didn't realize Hawaii was so far behind Maxwell in certain titles. Can't recall the last time there was such a gap between competing flagships.

    That GIgabyte SOC card is batshit insane, in more than a few places it is triple the performance of my 7970Ghz card, even before the additional overclock (on top of the factory OC.)

    Fiji needs to hurry the hell up so it can depress the $690 asking price another 10% or so, that way I can buy this one and feel slightly less guilty :D

    Haha, ok then, good to know. :)
    For people who contemplate buying, and then overclocking, cards like this Gigabyte one, the increases in voltage, clock speed, power usage, and then temperatures, are worth reading about.
    Edit: Lol, interesting trivia, but maybe too OT, so I deleted it.

    TPU do excellent reviews. Very good mix of games at the right resolutions and settings with a great performance summary at the end. I'm suprised gow well the 390x is doing vs the 980 (non-Ti). The 980Ti SC is certainly very fast bu also well out of my price range so not something I'd seriously consider.
