“misleading”

Written on: 21/03/2017 by samuelpc (1 review written)

I am happy all round with the pc its amazing bf1 over 90 fps ;) ... but and its a big but when I ordered I was offered the Nvidia GeForce® GTX 1060 6GB and under info it shows the black and silver card with Technical Specifications:
Stream Processors - 1280
Core clock - 1506MHz
Boost clock - 1708MHz
Memory Size - 6GB
Memory Type - GDDR5
Resolution - 7680x4320
Displays - 4
Virtual Reality Ready - Yes
Video Output - 1 x DVI-D, 1 x HDMI/mHDMI, 2 x Display Port...
but what I got was a MSI GeForce GTX 1060 GT OC Single Fan 6144MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card... now no where does it say MSI or OC so the fact is you are misleading people on the site and need to put a sign up saying cards maybe different..... but thanks for a lovely pc no problems yet

Hi,

Thanks for the feedback, if you click the info button next to the graphics card options (the same place where you clicked to see the 1060 spec) it does state that it could be a MSI or OC'ed card:

"All our graphics cards are of the following brands; Palit, Zotac, EVGA, XFX, ASUS, Gainward, MSI, Gigabyte, Sapphire, PowerColor, KFA2 and PNY (Nvidia and AMD/ATI dont actually make the cards themselves - They sell the chips on them to partners who then manufacture the rest of the card and market and sell them). Whilst the specification of each of the cards remain the same the brand may vary depending on stock and availability. The quoted specifications are the minimum you will recieve, we often supply machines with slightly faster factory overclocked cards with better coolers."

This is all perfectly normal, Nvidia themselves don't make graphics cards other than the "Founder Edition" versions which are only available at the beginning of a model launch. If it were a Founders Edition then it would be listed as a founders edition, but you wouldn't want one anyway as there are superior cards out there for the same cost.

The card you have is not only faster than promised but has a better cooler too.
