    Excuse me if I missed it, but some of the earlier driver reviews with the 2080 indicated massive power draw with the rtx series with 2 screens even after fixing it for single monitor. Does anyone know if NVIDIA had addressed this yet?

    i get around 23w power draw using two screens on windows. Nothing untoward during gaming, about 260ish, according to gpu-z

    Looks like i fixed my own issue. Apparently it's a known feature of multi monitors on Nvidia cards.

    I managed to fix by installing Nvidia Inspector and right-clicking the "Show overclocking" button in the bottom right corner. Select Multi Display power saver and change your settings there.

    Core and memory clocks are now much lower, as well as power consumption and temps
