I don't know if these are great deals. 1070 is mostly faster than these 980ti. Given that there were some deals for less than $400 1070 deals lately, I would rather wait to pick those up. Tax and shipping makes these around $355 for me. So not much more for newer tech unless you already have one 980ti and plan to go SLI.

the 980 ti hybrid at $330 is probably the best deal on a high end video card that you can possibly score provided that you have room for the water cooler. It is of course OOS now. The 1070 is 5% faster in some instances and as much as i like my 1070, that does not justify $70 or so price increase (keep in mind that a watercooled 1070 is $500). If the 980 ti hybrid was still in stock I would have sold my 1070 and pick that up instead but luckily for me and for my sanity laugh out loud its now OOS.

Note that the benchmarks were made against stock 980Ti and even then the 1070 were on average faster by 3%. These oc versions are at least 8%-10% faster than stock and are costing 25% less than 1070.

you are comparing a used card to a new card.

Even at $190 the gtx 970 seems like a solid deal - Shipping at $16 hurts

Are you talking about performance degradation? Isn't that a myth that has been debunked?

If you're looking for fast and cheap, I'd go with one of these. The price is a steal.

I'd say the only catch is, these full fledged Maxwell chips produce a LOT of heat. I have a 980 Ti overclocked to 1500 core and it's definitely running over 300w TDP.

If you're looking for a little cooler with same FPS (hot climate?), your best bet is the 1070. You'll be paying over $200 +/-, but runs a lot cooler than 980 Ti.

980 Ti with stock clocks is VERY underclocked, 1 GHz core clock I believe. A good 980 Ti overclock is in the 1450 to 1500 range on air. An overclocked 980 Ti could potentially be faster than an overclocked 1070. Take this with a grain of salt though, as there are multiple factors obviously involved.

Also be mindful of ASIC quality. These B Stock cards could potentially have low ASIC scores (lower the ASIC score, the harder it could be to overclock) BUT, IMO, for the price you're paying for one of these bad boys, regardless of ASIC score, its still a steal. If you're paying $600 for this card, that's a totally different story. Lots of people returned/exchanged cards because of low ASIC scores

Bottom line, performance is almost neck in neck to a 1070 depending on overclocks. Whoever picks one up, Enjoy Smilie

How do you purchase one of these cards? I don't see any buttons to buy them; are they all sold out?

Yes they are all gone. Stock fluctuates very quickly on the EVGA B-stock.

My friend sent back his 1070 because his EVGA 980ti FTW performed better in his games by 3-5FPS and the 1070 didn't even run much cooler. He downclocked the Ti to manage temps and it still scored higher than the 1070.
