Seems like desperation somewhat from Nvidia. How would Ampere perform if at 250w? Vice 320w or 350w? Maybe a tester will do this comparing Turing to Ampere watt per watt.Looking at it again there's one thing not in this list. The manufacturing process and the power being used. I'm surprised no one really has touched on this but these cards use more power than ANY nVidia card before it. It uses more power than ANY Titan card. Actually these cards use more power than ANY video card before within the last few generations. So the AIBs literally can't reuse components like they probably have in the past. The top cards of the 80 series have pretty much stayed around the 250 mark. These cards are 100w more.
