    Questionable color scheme as a con? I think it looks great and the cooler itself is great too. If this cooler ever makes it to other card, I think I may give Palit a try.

    Nice review Hexus. Any thoughts on why the non-reference prices are so much higher than implied in earlier articles?

    Simple price gouging due to a lack of supply, I'm afraid.

    Staggering performance boost, but for the high-mid range card the x70 cards were good bang-for-buck, but these sort of prices are verging on ludicrous.

    Hopefully AMD's next set of cards will restore some order to the pricing. I've picked up a second 970 to SLI for the time being. Will wait until the next architecture change and HBM to come along.

    When/if these come down to £330-350 I'll have one in a heartbeat. Doubtful the way things are going though

    I actually like color scheme, better than those screaming colors on other cards.

    Now problem is, this card is total overkill for 1080p, and AMD RX480 will be better for that for quite less money.Could probably tacle 1440p.
    As reviewer said 4K is not in the reach as far as fluidity comes in to the question.

    So this card is in between...so for it's price is expensive and I do think prices will go down in about a month.

    So, if not in the hurry , be patient, it pays off usually.
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    The thing is though reviews max all settings, enabling all bells and whistles. The 980Ti did 4K absolutely fine if you didn't enable everything (you don't need high AA on 4K either).

    I'm getting a 1070 and a 4K TV.

    Brexit has pushed these up £30-£40.
