I'm pretty sure you can overclock with the same applications that you use to overclock an amd gpu. And I'm also sure that you can get a way better overclock with nvidia gpus.
Lol... You're so dumb.
To overclock nvidia you would need significantly higher level of knowledge of hardware and software, than AMD which comes with all the tools.
And then you can over clock a gtx 960. Ever heard of unbiased sources?
I just picked up the AMD R7 370 to replace my aging HD 6850, its 3-8x better all around. (even though i originally wanted a GTX 960 to use with an nvidia shield tv, i made an AMD Steambox out with the 6850. ) I can now play a big list of games on High to Ultra with over 60fps on 1920x1080 with my FX 6300. Excellent card for the money. Im 4 hours in and very happy with the R7 370 XFX 2GB card.
$20 cheaper, maybe at launch, but the GTX 960 runs from $150-$400 and the R7 370 runs from $100-$230. And thats just new, used i can get a GTX 960 for $130 and an R7 370 for $75. If your wondering yes im an AMD Fanboy, but im also an Nvidia Fanboy. but you have to ask yourselves, do i want to pay more to get a little more performance? If yes then get the GTX 960, if no get the R7 370.
GTX Titan X has a tdp of 250 W
eh 110W is not Titan X
LEL. Meh new rig could be cheaper (by about $20) if I took the r7 370 (personally, i'm a fan of nvidia), but It would actually be the same price because of the tdp difference. I'm not hating on AMD, but seriously tho... That's a GTX Titan X tdp.
just seen a overclock review, matches or goes higher than a gtx 960's stats. http://www.reviewstudio.net/2280-asus-radeon-r7-370-strix-review-a-revamped-r7-270/overclocking
when the 370x comes out it looks like its going to beat the 960 like this seems a tiny bit slower that will be barely noticeable That TDP though
