    I'm 99% sure it's the latter.

    Either way, beautiful cards. It's not like the miners will care about it though, they will just end up bunched with all the others in their mining farms to never see use in an actual "game" (despite their overly "gamey" naming)...

    Oh, another imaginary 3080? really? One can just wonder what drives AIB partners to tirelessly continue wasting unneccessary ressources to ven design variation of cards that mostly go into a market where all this 10% markup OC marketing bla does not count a penny. All this can serve is "tradtitional" customers just getting pxxxxxd off even more with each and every "announcement" of products that are pracxtically unavailable - it's as much fun as a visit to the dentist by now.
    I really think nvidia should force their AIB partners to stop this crap and keep mum until the shelf situation has largely improved.

    I'd like to flash my Gaming X Trio to a Z, 30W extra is always something.
    That would be possible, right?

    Yes there, it should work

    Did you tried any other BIOS like Strix or FTW3 or Suprim?

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    Not yet due to fear of bricking an unreplaceable card :)

    You could, but the VRM limits in 3080 Trio X may be reached, as it has some vacant spots for VRM components on the board. I am guessing that 3080 Trio Z has those locations fully populated.

    I literally flashed my Palit RTX 3090 GamingPro with every possible BIOS which is available hahaha and no issues, currently running KPE XOC BIOS as my daily BIOS, capped at 75% for gaming and for rendering at 55%

    Just don't worry there, you shouldn't brick your GPU unless you do something stupid, there are several guides on that

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    Ah, well in that case I won't bother.

    That's what I've heard but I guess one can never be too careful :)
