    Yeah totally agree, I dont know how I missed that video, would of helped me with my decision earlier.
    Im just surprised how good this card is, I thought i would need a Ti to help my games at 1440p, but the 2080 is enough grunt for sure.
    Excited to see how the new RTX and DLSS are going to be like in the future.

    How do you update BIOS in Gigabyte cards? There is a new BIOS out and for the life of me am unable to flash it as per the Gigabyte instructions.

    What do you guys think about Refurbished Certified video cards on amazon? What about used gpu's on amazon?

    What's this new bios for these Gigabyte cards? Are they artifacting, crashing fixes or just performance improvements?

    yep, a great upgrade, especially at 1440p, not sure if that's your case. I went from 1080 to 2080 and got a really nice boost, can't complain. Enjoy mate.

    Going from a GTX 1070 @1080P 144hz to this card. So really looking forward for Ray Tracing in BFV and Metro Exodus, i guess....

    Wow you were on a roll there, anyway I did buy a Used Zotac RTX 2080 AMP on Amazon for $626 USD Shipped, I live in Canada so it was $837 Canadian.

    I then put GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 2080 Gaming OC 8GB BIOS on the Zotac RTX 2080 AMP and I won the silicon lottery with the Zotac RTX 2080 AMP.

    Hands down the best RTX 2080 card I own.

    The worst is EVGA RTX 2080 XC Ultra Gaming which I paid $1107 Canadian on sale, saved $200 Canadian off regular price of $1300 Canadian.

    Best advice I could give is buy a used second hand GTX 1080 Ti if possible (RTX features are not that good as of today ) ,The GTX 1080TI are faster than RTX 2080 in my testing on maximum overclocks.

    Anyway back on buying used on Amazon from the Amazon Warehouse. It was a easy transaction and I got lucky with a great Zotac RTX 2080 AMP card which runs like a champ and is quiet.

    There is a 30 day return window ,so I also would recommend buying used from Amazon Warehouse if you want to try your luck.Just some quick thoughts for anyone looking at this thread.

    The 2080 was a definite upgrade, but didn't do much in Assassins Creed Odyssey, I only got a few increase of 5 fps at best.
    I wonder if upgrading the ram from 1600 to 2400 will improve my performance, what do you guys think?

    I have 3770K clocked at 4.5ghz with DDR 2400 ,I would say the 3770K is what is holding you back more so than the ram in CPU bound games.
    Playing my games on a Ryzen 2600X and I am not as CPU bound in games as I was playing the same game on 3770K clocked at 4.5ghz.
    I also stopped playing games on lower resolution 1920x1080 and just playing 4K to put most of the pressure on GPU.

    This RTX 2080 only hits around 1965-1920mhz on the core, the memory is always 7000. I haven't tried overclocking it but i'm sure it will hit alittle over 2000mhz on the core. Spring is here so the overclocks are coming down either way. How high are your core clocks on your RTX 2080's guys?

    About the same. With OC scanner it hits 2000mhz, so can probably get another 20-40mhz on top of that in manual mode. I dont OC my cards, but may occasionally do so just to see what it can do. The performance gains are just not worth it in the end. The days of Maxwell-level OC'ing are about over imo, since GPU makers seem to squeeze every last mhz in their boost clocks already.

    Just a 3 month update on my MSI RTX 2080 Gaming X Trio...I have had no issues at all in that time and it has been running just a fraction below 70 Degrees at max load. Runs very quiet and on the games I play which include PUBG, F1 2018 and Project Cars amongst a few others, the GPU has been stellar at 4K. The boost always sits at around 1970MHz with an occasional drop to 1950Mhz...I played around with a little overclock via MSI Afterburner and had it top out at 2070MHz and stabilise at 2050MHz...Have to admit, I love the GPU though be warned it is a large and heavy GPU....

    I also have an RTX2080 Trio absolutely awesome it runs so cool and is super quiet. I used OC scanner and my card starts at 2100 and drops to 2085 during gaming I have ram overclocked a little +500. I agree the card is huge but it is a beast got mine for free swapped my 1080ti gaming x with a friend as he wanted to go sli. told me to order the 2080 I wanted so I got the trio my old 1080ti OC scores the same as my trio OC in firestrike but the 2080 is slightly quicker in most games.

    Weird I have tested some GTX 1080TI's overclocked vs some RTX 2080's overclock and the GTX 1080TI was faster on every card using Intel CPU/AMD CPU and Different Ram kits for both CPU's.

    Could come down to drivers making a difference.I use RTX 2080 for the pathetic 3 games that use RTX but I really like DLSS@4k makes a game go from non-playable to playable.(on Gsync/Freesync monitors)

    Now I am not trying to pick on you or say your wrong I just have a different experience than you with several of these cards.

    Just for fun 2600X@4400Mhz RTX2080
