    It's crazy that people are still gaming on 1080p (unless those are PCs hooked up to a TV in a living room). I got my first 1440p monitor almost 10 years ago, and even before that I got my 24" 1200p screen more than 15 years ago.

    I wouldn't even know where to find a non-TV 1080p screen nowadays except maybe on a smartphone or some cheap 13" notebook.

      It's crazy that people are gaming on anything above 1080p when in reality it makes no difference unless you stay unhealthily close to your monitor.

        where do you live ? the market is full of cheap 1080p monitors while 1440p is expensive and hard to find a good one.

          its better for CPUs to be at full clock speed so they can idle faster, it saves more power than being underclocked and taking a long time to finish their task so they cant idle.

            That might be true under two conditions:
            • The workload is fixed, so the CPU or GPU can race-to-idle.
            Not true here as the benchmarks record FPS over a fixed time. The GPU is never idle.
            • The operating point on the power-performance curve you are starting from is favorable
            This is why there is likely a difference between overclocking (what you initially claimed, and which is not usually beneficial as the standard boost clocks are usually fairly high up on the power-performance curve) and underclocking (which you are talking about here, and which might be detrimental). See an example here of a power-performance curve (would be happy to link to Phoronix data on this, but haven't found any).

              my laptop has high pixel density 4k. my computer monitor is still 1080p. Its night and day difference. and no i am not that close. Although i do hate the high pixel density which is why i would look a good 1440p monitor for gaming. But they cost as much as mid range PC. so not gonna buy.

                  Well I think 1440p most likely a better place to be if you have a display that is 27inch and veritable frequency display up to something like 120 or 144hz. I am on [email protected] myself with hardware that can push that resolution solidly at my displays frequency. Freesync is getting cheaper and cheaper at 27inches 144hz.

                    55 less watts and and around 384 less cores than the gtx 1070

                    little less power draw and a little less performance considering game title

                      +1 I am really impressed by this card's power draw and price! If this card had good open source drivers I would have bought it already.
