What about it? 1050? It holds there constantly unlike Nvidia GPUs? AMD boost is LOL because it shows out of the gate the boost clocks.

Since this is a "Turbo Boost Clock" i thought it would be around 1100?

No clue. Whatever it is, it will sit there out of the gate...

That said, the 280x already "boosts" to 1050, so it may be 1100.

No it doesn't. It boosts to 1000, from 850.

The "Turbo" version of the card comes in at 1K and 'boosts' to 1.5K.. Sorry I was talking about the card that was the context of this thread.. my bad for not adding that to my post.

Reference versions are 850-1K boost. Which, boost is funny on AMD cards as I mentioned earlier as it sits at those clocks out of the box. Sorry, I have the turbo version on the bench now... Thought this announcement was 'new'. I had the card in hand a a week ago with no NDA on it, LOL (but received the same email today from HIS!).

Ah well, I generally like HIS' cards, even if I don't like the blue theme, but if it's like the "older" IceQs, it will be good.
