Hi Wi1zzard, a simple question. Why you don't add custom cards to the noise table like you do on the temps table?
And other than that, thanks a lot for your outstanding job on your reviews.
Just a general comment.
In my view, the extra VRAM mid/high-spec card SKUs need a minimum of 3k res, max IQ and a 2nd card to show any potential benefit compared to their stock RAM versions. 1v1 these are like low/mid-spec cards with crazy 4GB RAM with crippled memory bandwidth.
The 'gimmick' has moved from lower/mid tier to mid/high tier with the benefit of actually being able to see greater usable performance by adding the 2nd card. The above and beyond difference noticeable will be in min FPS.
Thanks, W1zzard for calling as you see it. Exorbitant price then not great memory chips or overclocked out of the box.
Any nice R9 290 (non-X) OC that are going for between $370-390 today would give the same basic performance in 4K. Like the Sapphire Tri-X OC R9 290 4GB GDDR5 that works down to $360 the last day or so.
Have you found how to unlock it to the full GK110 with 2880 SPs?
not possible, not with any recent nvidia card
Wizz, is that a vapor chamber or it's just a simple metal heat spreader with the heatpipes running along? Can't really say from the picture.

I was waiting for a 780ti version with extra VRam to update my current GPU but this ain't happening it seems.. Might as well grab a Ti or wait for the 8 series to be released. Thanks for the review, I was actually expecting this GPU to be much better but unfortunately it's not.
In the cons you list no backplate, but it has a backplate.
Reviewer fail. Thanks I remember I was looking at the PCB picture and thought "oh no backplate". But at the time didn't realize I should look at the card2 picture...
lol but you have the cards???? xD
please don't tell me you're doing reviews of imaginary cards xD
Just asking please don't ban me
Of course I only review cards that I have physically with me. While writing pro/cons I wasn't sure if it had a backplate, so I looked at the pictures in the review, and looked at the wrong picture.
I'd be pissed if I were a Titan owner. Hell of a premium for all the hype.
That's nvidia's property. I am already pissed with the potential unpleasant thought to be an owner of any of their cards. You see this shit, Titan is the most expensive but yet you don't even receive all of its shaders enabled. Who said that no one can have it all. This is the shit from a shitty company.
The only, kind-of-good thing about their existance is that they somehow modify AMD prices so we can happily buy cheaper Radeons.
You go girl, fight the power!
Wait for giveaway, hope so
See, this is why you need to "hire" me as the review editor.
