Great review. I like that short reviews on OC3D are 20 mins long.

Those little components that you didn't know about Tom, are phase doublers. Controller drives 8 phases that are then doubled to 16 for better power delivery, load and heat distribution, therefore requiring less cooling.

Good reviews always.

Making an all black version would look so much better, RGB would actually make sense then.

There was Quicksilver version for 1070 but they never made 1080, and didn't announce 1080 Ti. I really don't know why. It looks epic.

What a shame something so simple and so sexy doesn't exist.

Good review, definitely disappointed in the boost clocks. I picked up a 1080Ti Armor OC when the first round popped up on Newegg and it performs about the same, although with worse temperatures. Planning on dropping an EK block on it and adding it to the loop once they get around to releasing it. Lower temperatures are a given, hopefully the boost clock goes up as well.

Yes they really need to get rid of the red and black it's so long overdue to be done too

Thanks for the review Tom! Even if you had all the time in the world, all these cards are the same nowadays in performance, it's the cooling and PCB where the differences are so these shorter, subsequent reviews make sense from that standpoint as well.

You're right about the colour scheme for this card; it's ancient by now and just terrible, I find.
