Corsair's Hydro GFX GTX 1080 Ti liquid cooled GPU offers two preset modes, a respectable Gaming mode with frequencies of 1544MHz base, 1657MHz boost and a more impressive OC Mode which runs at 1569MHz and 1683MHz.  [H]ard|OCP blasted past those frequencies when overclocking, hitting a 2050MHz GPU, 11.6GHz memory after increasing the power settings.  This was enough to allow playable frame rates at 4k on the games they tested, even with graphics settings pushed up.  If 4k gaming is in your plans, this review is worth checking out.

Lets talk about the power usage here. Thats a lot of $$$

Compared to what? A Corsair Hydro fully over clocked uses 478 watts total for the system. It uses $35 a month at $.10 per kilowatt hour for 24/7 max theoretical usage. So $12 for 8 hours a day at max theoretical usage. If you cut out 3 Starbucks drinks a month and your gaming fix is taken care of at the highest framerates available for a single gaming card today.

However an RX Vega 64 at stock speeds uses 476 watts.

I'm betting this 1080ti pounds the RX Vega 64 in framerates whether it is DX 12 or Vulkan.

Lets get real here. You will need a second job to power this POS.

So you can't afford $12 a month for 8 hrs a day of playing time at max consumption. SMH. You could cut a few lawns or do some chores for someone.

A second job? You exaggerate greatly. Besides if you had a second job you wouldn't have time to play much anyways rendering your whole statement null to begin with. Consumption would be next to nothing.

"Your mom" what astounding card do you have that makes this a POS. Quit being a hater because you need two Vega 64s to match/exceed this and definitely will need more income to pay for all the extra electricity consumption.

BTW weak troll attempt.

That's total system power nothing out of the ordinary here. Seems like a good alternative to ftw hybrid and sc2 hybrid. Can you please review the new elite ftw 1080ti factory memory overclocked to 12ghz.
