    Yes, yes, afterburner is great. Suggest that once you get your 1080 you just give XOC a try. Different from Precision X as it's designed for Pascal GPU's and GPU boost 3.0. I like the in game OSD display and noticed that in Witcher 3, with no overclocking, GPU was boosting to the 1960's plus range, well over the standard 1860 boost for the FTW, as temps were in the low 70's, and FYI FPS around 160. So the card seems to be running fine (cool) and as advertised.

    I was surprised when I downloaded/installed 6.03 I had to put in the card serial number. This is significant, high level technology
    Oh, I'll certainly give it another shot once I get my 1080. I have nothing against the program, I just prefer the layout of Afterburner. If the new Precision X has actual improvements for EVGA cards, then I'll almost certainly switch over to it.

    It's true alright. I started a stepup 6 10 and on 6 22 got an email from evga upgrading me to the sc version. And nearly another month has passed ... I still wait... patiently
    That's awesome to hear. Hopefully I'll get a similar email soon.

    I'm sure you guys will love the SC. It's the card of choice for many EVGA fans. Performance wise, base and boost clocks are only slightly lower than the FTW. FTW's main difference is in features, two 8 pins, two bios.

    This is my first time buying a top tier card and it was due to being tired of MGPU issues with my 770's. Looks like top tier will last about another week (and I don't care ). Loving this FTW. Pascal Titan X is August 2, I think. Hey, is Nvidia trying to steal the thunder of the Windows 10 anniversary update?

    why are you paying all that extra cash for a card thats at most 25% faster in 99% of games wait for the TI

    I assume you're talking to the 980TI boys. Huge performance improvements in the 1080 compared to two 770 Keplers. It's more than overkill for my 1080P gaming needs. 1080 TI pricing, somewhere between $700 - $1,200 U.S, likely closer to the latter.

    For me I'm thinking like will cost me $200 to step up to the 1080. Then I'll turn around and sell my other 980Ti (assuming I don't just give it to my son), which should cover at least half the price of a second 1080. So I would likely end up with 2 1080s for less than the price of one.

    Blackrose; I see on the EVGA forums members are still waiting for their step up Pascal's to be shipped. Have you heard anything about your card?

    That's a long wait, which they say is due to the overall demand for their Pascal cards.

    Haven't heard a peep yet. At this point, I'm not expecting it until maybe December or January.

    WOW! You're ok since you have a good system, including graphics. Imagine Kepler owners waiting for the upgrade, or worse, Kepler SLI owners. The performance boost from Kepler to Pascal (even 2 to 1) is incredible.

    So even with BF1 there are SLI issues (ie SLI disabled) although DICE has said they are working it with Nvidia and plan to have it fixed for release date in October. I am so glad I don't have MGPU issues any more.

    Just curious has anyone here had issues with EVGA cards and windows 10? I bought a new GT740SC 4GB in June and I've never got this card to run more than a few minutes. EVGA gave me an RMA and the "Step Up" option but I'm afraid, do I actually give EVGA more money for the 980, 1080 4GB versions and then hope I can successfully use it? The tragedy is all I'm trying to do is use my Cad Software Solidworks and Sketchup. At Present I'm running the native Intel HD 530 just to use my custom built baby. I'm so distraught I spent a lot of money and now I have to spend more. My husband is pissed off and doesn't think I should "waste" more money on the same brand of video card! Any thoughts on this? Funny thing is for clients I use ATI/Radeon never had any problems. I thought I'd give EVGA/Nvidia a try. As you can see that didn't quite work out. Any advice would be most welcome!

    No, I have had no problems whatsoever with this EVGA FTW 1080/Nvidia Pascal card with Windows 10. I had no problems with my previous Nvidia Asus Kepler cards under Windows 10 either. Previous to that I had AMD 5870's with Windows 7 and had no problems with those.

    I am no fan boy of any brand so wouldn't try to convince anyone to buy one brand over the other. Performance wise, Nvidia's current Pascal architecture is superior to anything AMD has to offer. And EVGA has one of the best customer support service systems/warranty in the business. Many reviews of EVGA Pascal cards at the link below:

    AMD's response to Pascal's performance was better pricing with their 480's. But of course that's why Nvidia came out with their 1060.

    I have read many reviews and never seen any specific issues to EVGA under Windows 10. The Nvidia architecture (Maxwell/Pascal) and drivers are universal.

    All I can suggest is do your research (bing/google are your friends) and decide. If you feel more comfortable with AMD, go for it. They make a good card too.
