    Have to agree with Alex here... there are maybe a dozen "golden register settings" per chip out of thousands of registers, and those are "magic numbered" simply because the HW teams tell us to program register X with value Y, and that's where the golden register code comes from. Our internal code is no different.

      A golden pony?

      I have a 1080TI because I game at 4k, and well it kinda does the job, plenty of dips well below 60fps and some games only give 50fps at medium settings so I will definitely be looking out for the NEXT big thing, however I would prefer to get a AMD GPU, unfortunately If AMD has not got something to match the 1180 or whatever when it comes out, I will have no choice but to go with NVIDIA again. (I spin a ITX form factor 1080Ti, pretty cool)

        Moreover, the registers in the golden settings are documented in the register headers anyway if you want to decode the settings.
