    Impressive! And much cheaper than Asus for better performance. Nice. I do have to pull you up on this though: "Only play at 1080p? You're wasting money with a GTX 1080." That's just not true. 60Hz gaming is horrible once you've got the higher refresh rate bug. I can't go back now, it was the major source of frustration for years when LCDs came in, and now that we're there, I don't want to see us going back to 30 r 60fps nonsense!

    the ichills are always super impressive, I just worry about buying such an expensive product from a company i never heard of. would rather get an Asus or Evga or Gigabyte and suffer a little (cost wise, and performance wise) in order to know it is in safe hands.

    My main concern when buying a graphics card is the quality of the warranty. I've heard horror stories about just about all the major manufacturers, with the exception of EVGA. I definitely wouldn't relish the idea of sending an Inno3D card back to Hong Kong for an RMA.

    Well there are always going to be horror stories, in to be fair the larger a company is, the more stories there will be, even if it's still a small %. But yeah EVGA is always fab in my experience.

    I had a good experience with Gigabyte and ebuyer - I know - surprising !
    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.

    Really does ebuyer have a bad rep? I've bought from ebuyer for ages, never had any issues.

    They used to have a bad RMA rep. My experience was excellent though.

    How come GTA V is no longer benchmarked ? Everyone bloody owns it, and it's a great way for current owners to see how they measure up

    Regarding 1080p - I still game at 1080p/60 even with high end cards because some games struggle to maintain 60fps on 980ti with all the eye candy turned on (The Division, Witcher 3, I'm looking at you). If a game easily holds 60fps, then the DSR resolution scaling allows for much higher image quality / reduced pixel-crawl / better AA on a 1080p display. I'm playing the new Sherlock Holmes game at DSR-4k scaled back to 1080p and it cleans up the visuals noticably (much less "shimmer") compared to running it at native 1080p. Indeed, getting smoother DSR-4k performance makes these cards really interesting, although in truth I think we're still at least one more generation of cards away from smooth single-card 4k gaming (depending on game). Indeed, by the time those appear, games will probably have moved the goalposts again!

    I can vouch for Sapphires Warranty and support as they done a direct swap without fuss on a faulty graphics card as the retailer had shut down.

    Does this card have a backplate?

    Did they have a UK RMA address?

    Waiting to see results for the x4 version. 900 series Inno3D was amazing.
