    Does that mean they are guarenteeing all dies are overclockable?
    Meaning factory pre-overclocking becomes a pointless premium?


    Rigs:
    Main: ASUS P6T7 WS Supercomputer, i7 980, 24GB Corsair Dominator GT, OCZ Vectors + HDDs, Inno3D GTX 980 iChill Herculez X4 Air Boss Ultra, Seasonic X-850W, Fractal Design Define XL, 10 x64 Pro, Noctua DH14 + stock chassis fans

    @AGTDenton - sounds that way, and that would make the most sense for board partners, otherwise they'd have to test each and every board to ensure that it meets the necessary speed bin. That being said, it is equally possible that Nvidia now expects partners to speed-test the parts if they plan to sell overclocked parts (or discourage it).

    I think pre-overclocked cards still hold value though, as messing around with overclocking tools can be a bit of hassle, and may interfere with the card's power-saving features or fan controls. I still see value in a pre-overclocked GPU that is capable of stopping its fans when idle, and adjusing noise/clocks dynamically as needed. Not saying you can't achieve that with the tools available, but it isn't completely trivial, and usually voids any warranty.

    Sounds like yields have ramped up to the point that they now all meet the 'A' grade, without any pressure from AMD there is no point in creating a new grade for the top bins an 'AA' for an RTX 2080Ti+ or Tii etc
