Quite amusing that it is essentially a rebadged 8-series card, as it potentially gives some insight to Nvidia's current 'tactics' ... which are pretty weak if you ask me!

Otherwise, very thorough review as ever :)

The ability to raise voltage without physical modifications is great. However I would have liked to know the stock voltage.

You would think that they'd increase the clock speeds to make it at least stand out a little bit...

You would think so, but then the general public will often be fooled into thinking that 9xxx > 8xxx. Clever marketing I guess, and they can get away with essential 'evergreening' by providing the adapter and software, lol.
