    Inb4 the "reports" that it will cost about 420 USD were simply quoting my post in the forums.

    pretty much BS.. overclocking has been since a long time one of the most strong marketing points, hardly they will do a 180° turn by locking overclocking.

    "Since the Vega 56 – and Ryzen generally – proved to be a disappointment, the 1070 Ti became highly anticipated. The news that the card can’t be overclocked, though, will heavily dent expectations."

    That sentance doesnt make sense, semantically or logically. I think ill give this low confidence at the moment.

    I could see locked voltage but hard to believe no OCs at all.

    Since GTX 970 I've not OC'ed a single 10 series, see no need too and, locking the cards helps ensure others don't buy others stressed out gaming cards

    Highly unlikely. Why would Nvidia tank sales on a competing card by doing this?

    they'll likely be flashed to eliminate the lock.

    I think it reads more that they cannot come factory overclocked. If not I'm sure there will be bios that can walk around this. If this is going to be a 'super' mining card on gddr5 memory, i don't see why they would gimp the ability to modify volts and speeds in any way. If anyone buys one of these cards at 399$ I'd love to see a screenshot of it.

    Do they mean that this may be implementing some new form of GPU Boost?

    I can't even bring myself to care. My 1060 maxes everything I play out at 1440p with 100+ fps. I haven't overclocked a card for anything besides benching fun since I had a GTX 580. Gaming for years now has been about how quiet I could get the card rather than how fast.

    I think the rumors are getting things twisted. The original rumor was that all the cards would ship with the same base and boost speeds and none would be oced from the factory. That was clearly done so none of the out of the box 1070 ti cards would touch the 1080. This is likely nothing more than nonsense about not being able to overclock the card yourself.

    If this turns out to be true, I won't be buying it.

    I still find it hard to believe a 1070 ti exists. The Vanila 1080 is already close in cost to 1070s with mining inflation factored in. What product gap is it filling? There isn't really that much room between a 1070 and 1080 price or performance wise to justify a new card.

    The only thing that makes sense to me in regards to an overlocking lock is that the card is just a highly overclocked 1070 with no wiggle room...... or that clocks needs be locked to keep the 1080 relevant because they are so close in performance.

    I don't see how they can lock voltage or power with boost 3.0........

    Rough translation to English seems to dismiss the rumor of the inability to overclock

    Rather, every card will ship with identical frequencies out of the box

    Still rumor both ways
