    The 970 looks like a nice card for the price.

    Interesting. Comparing 980GTX with my 780TI SC, mine is happily running at 1106mhz - quite possibly much higher, which is a slight bump from the 1046 boost stock. The boost number mentioned in the article is 928 .. so yeah not the creme of the top, and it does reduce the performance advantage a stock 980 would have over my TI.

    However apples vs apples etc, this makes me think a factory overclocked 980 could perform really well.

    Apples vs oranges i would say, it's a different chip, clock speeds aren't everything.

    My 660 ti's are stable at ~1300mhz, still wouldnt be as fast a 780 ti at 980mhz

    I only have a reference 780, so I think it'll very much be worth it

    Shitty early reviews, there should be decent ones later today, hopefully

    Few people snuck in some orders through Amazon's listings. NDA expiry rumoured to be in 1h15m from now. (11am AEST)

    Yep, true; my point of view was about comparing a factory overclocked card to a stock one.

    I've decided to cancel my SLI upgrade and wait for evga's 980 super clocked / SLI. Key decider for me is how Star Citizen is maxing out GPU memory with three screens, and how good the 1440p numbers are looking for the 980 already.

    I know, right? Wasn't expecting it to be quite that bad! Might go and grab one of the 780 Ti's on eBay for $600 instead...
