Sorry I cannot yet post links...
So I'm in the market for a low-profile GPU and have settled on either the MSI N750 Ti-2GD5TLP or the Gigabyte GV-N75TOC-2GL.
My dilemma is a simple one, but has had me bouncing back and forth between the 2. I like the Gigabyte card because of the more modern connector options and the slightly higher clock speeds, but I like the MSI for the dual fan configuration and the bios update feature.
I have read reports of the MSI card running very hot and that the dual fans offer inferior cooling. The Gigabyte card apparently runs cooler, but is excessively loud. Both cards are the same $119 from Amazon (who ships to South Africa).
Anyone have anything constructive to add?

That's also my understanding, but some "experts" in the comments are arguing that we'll see chips with 75% of their cores (and probably a bunch of cache) disabled. That would be horrible news if AMD is forced to do that in large volume. Ryzen is too important of a chip (and likely too large, though I don't know the die area or transistor count) to sell based on 1/4 of the performance enabled.
