    Darn close, at least, I would think.

    Let's hope you win the silicon lottery.

    I often wonder if the AIB partners keep track (have a list somewhere by part) of the clocks each card achieves before they package them. They must test them to ensure they achieve their required boost clock.

    When I rma'd my first EVGA 1080 I asked tech support to ensure they send me a good ocing card. They said they would indeed. Maybe just marketing but I can tell you the previous card never hit 2K plus clock in gaming like this card does. Might have something to do with the thermal pad mod though.

    That is quite the card.....looking at it on ASUS's site .....one of the stats is cooling...
    40% More Heat Dissipation Area
    Up to 30% Cooler and 3X Quieter Gaming Performance
    New ROG Strix graphics are constructed with a 2.5-slot width, providing 40% more heat sink surface area for heat dissipation compared to previous 2-slot designs for dramatically cooler and quieter performance.

    Cooling is very important for Pascal in terms of what clocks you can expect to get, and how quick throttling rears its ugly head.

    Look at the Zotac Amp Extreme cooling solution, its big and it works.

    That Asus card is impressive, Mike. But you know that "2.5 slot width" drives me crazy. What do they mean 2.5 slots? What are you going to do with half a slot?

    The card takes up 3 slots. If you need slot 3 or want to SLI with 1 and 3 you are screwed. On my old Alienware, I switched to AMD 7970's. Same thing, 2.5 slots. I needed slots 1 and 3 to run both cards at 16x. I exchanged them for Asus 770's which took up 2 slots each.

    You make a very good point ....its out of my price range at the moment anyhow. At least for now.

    I'm sure you realize Mr. Mike, that your CPU, MB, PSU, Cooler, case and a bunch of us are simultaneously pulling at that pci e slot of yours to get that not belonging GTX 950 out of there.

    PS: Where is that RX 460?

    I kinda figured that might be the case .....and of course your right. Spent a few bucks re-doing my living room, so everything else is put on hold.....for now.

    Nothing wrong with waiting and holding to priorities. Significant drops in pricing going on with other cards, like 1080's.

    Hey, there might be an AIB partner who throws a quick fire sale on those now "unwanted" 1080's.

    Or maybe further downward price adjustments coming when Vega hits the market, sooooon.
