    I've a pair of these and have to say I don't think they're especially flimsy. They certainly aren't as heavy as my old card 670 windforce 3x. But to be honest I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing.

    The only slightly annoying thing about them is that there isn't quite enough hysteresis on the on/off of the fans. After a gaming session the top card spends about 10 minutes pulsing the fans on and off whilst it hovers between 59 and 61 degrees.

    Can I ask why you've dropped 1440 or 1600p from your test resolutions?

    Don't you think there should be some kind of mid point between the "anything can play it" 1080 res and the "yeah, you're probably going to need a second card" 4K res?

    "Nvidia has made a good choice regarding video outputs on the reference card" ehh apart from going with the older display port standard which doesn't support freesync ! So your forced into buying a g-sync monitor if you want less screen tearing.

    But their cards don't support freesync anyway.

    But they easily could and freesync is royalty free unlike g-sync. Also if they do that for the next generation cards (AMD will probably be beyond DP 1.2A) they will stopping themselves having a higher throughput of data, just for the sake of a few royalties !
    This is one of the few things I hate Nvidia for, all there proprietary tech they make us use when AMD makes there stuff free for everyone to use and therefore helps advance technology progress rather than hinder it.

    Presumably if they support freesync in future cards, then those cards will have DP1.2a, if you get what I mean

    Maybe its time to finally upgrade my 7850. I do love quiet GPUs.

    Yes or 1.3 or a future revision number. AMD's been using 1.2A for two generations of cards and Nvidia haven't bothered seemingly because it might harm profits very slightly. It just seems rather anti consumer to me that's all.
