You're correct. This is a deal that all customers get though. Here it is:
And the point I was making is that using 50% more power for 4 FPS is a waste of energy and thus money. Most of these cards already have an overclock, so why not just live with that?
I’ve never seen a noticeable difference from overclocking my GPU in gaming. Mature drivers will net you much more performance in the long run.
Sure that would be true but I wasn't touching the voltage.
OK, so some Zotac RTX 2080Ti AMP! became available locally.
Any good/bad experiences with zotak amp editions?
Should I jump?
I've used Zotac in the past, I had no problems with them.
They've been around for quite a while now.
These bad boys came today, the cards should be here next week! (Nvlink came a week ago!)
I doubt anyone can pump out an additional overclock of 20% on an already factory overclocked card for the 2080 Ti, let alone the 1080 Ti. 10% is optimistic. You'd probably have to be at 15 C to get anything close to that. I think Jayz2cents got there first, and Steve from Nexus is probably there now. Their OC war is quite hilarious to watch on YouTube.
You're seriously basing your argument on a youtube video? I easily hit 2ghz on my msi trio and memory I was able to raise up to +200mhz. Had to use a custom fan curve for throttling (nothing new) and overclocked the core using the curve (also not new since pascal). That's with zero voltage increase. I went from an average of 67fps to 70-71 on shadow of the tomb raider 4k.
Will do! hopefully done by the end of the month, It will be a brand new build! exciting times!
Congrats. I could care less about overclocking cards for a few fps, but I've always favored stability over performance. Guess I'm just old school. I have a 1080 Ti FTW3 Hybrid and don't OC it or mess with the power target.
If I ever do get a 2080 Ti it'll be a Hybrid and I won't OC it.
got mine tofay the only one I could snag was a Asus Dual Edition happy sofar.
blows everything away at 1080p gotta wait till next week before I get back to the Barracks to try running at at 4k unless I ask my dad to use his sony 4k tv to try it out
Oh dear, looks like i found the issue with my temperatures... The extra length of the card compared to my previous cards was cutting the airflow of my case...
Adjusted the frontal fans configuration and temperature looks normal now
Should have started by doing opened case testing, would have realised that earlier
Well, if the overclock isn't too extreme then it can be stable for years. Many enthusiasts see overclocking as their birthright , but it will undoubtedly incur a higher power bill though so they will definitely be paying for it (no such thing as free performance). I also run my GPUs at stock but that's because I do more than just game with them and they're almost always at full load.
One of the three EVGA Gaming XC cards I ordered showed up yesterday (other two next week apparently), flashed it and been playing around with it all afternoon, runs very quiet and cool.
Performance is very good, only thing that I had to make a slight concession on so far was AC: Odyssey, where I had to drop the AA to medium in order to maintain 4K/60FPS.
Everything else I've tried has managed a solid 4K/60FPS.
Yeah this thing is fast. I'm happy coming from a 980ti
Yah, I played Battlefront II for a few hours when I first got it and I don't know if it was going from SLI to a single GPU but the game felt far more responsive.
battlefront 2 was one of the first game i tried, looks fantastic, and 4K 60 Ultra is.. Incredible
Yah, it is a truly stunning game.
If you had told me we'd have games that look like that back in 77 (when A New Hope Released), I would have never believed it.
It's some kind of Hero event this weekend and I just tore up Endor with Luke, we were in a big group of Rebel heroes, was f*cking epic.
Battlefront 2 seems dead for me. I can never seem to get a match going.
try dropping the volumetric clouds instead, they seem to be bugged.
