False trade descriptions in the press release, which is illegal afaik (not for TPU, but for Zotac).

Three cards boost performance by up to 180% vs. a single card, totalling up to 280% of the performance of a single card. They do not boost performance by 280%.

Not when MSI Lightning 680 matches its core clock(1110/1176) & have software(AB2.2.3) support for over-voltage. Stock vs Stock this card might come ahead as Zotac is the only NV AIB that does factory OC for memory but it is a different story when you OC both to the max. unless Firestorm allows AMP! software OV beyond 1.175V Lightning is still superior to this card.

My stock 680 from almost a year ago can do the same clocks for 24/7. Still alive now. No fancy coolers and "silencer" stuff.
