What is the point of this card? Why not just get a regular one?

It's pretty silly doing direct currency conversions for products like this. The Lightning will almost certainly be priced very closely to the Classified, which is 700 USD.

Are you serious? Voltage should be unlocked by default. Kepler is the exception when it comes to voltage control.

Lightning cards are known for their impressive power delivery and overclocking under LN2.

Oh, for extreme overclocking.

I guess if you have the money to burn for one of those cards, you have the money to burn for a replacement card in case you burn the card.

That makes sense but meh, if it's not much better than a classified, I'll stick with those if the price is $800.
