I would back down that power target and see if the artifacts disappear. You don't want to be running it like that.
I have my EVGA 2080 TI XC locked at 130% power target and according to GPU-Z, its hitting its VReg throttle limit. Depending on the application used, it can be 2010mhz, or 1965MHZ according to GPU-Z. Overall, I think in comparing the Asus card and EVGA card, the ASUS card has the edge in cooling as the EVGA tends to ramp up fan speed higher to a point where its audible to maintain that power target/2k~ range mhz OC. The Asus card is also a 2.7 slotter which means more heatsink area to cool. I am a sucker for my EVGA build, but tbh, an't blame my brand loyalty as they have RMA'd me well for over 10 years no hassles for anything that has acted up. On top of that, in some cases, I've been given better parts in return.
It has so many phases that should help. TDP is the same as a 1080ti.
I agree with the case.
TDP is the same on the spec sheet but I can tell you real world even with not with an adjusted power slider the card is using more than advertised as a stock card easily spikes an extra 6-10%. My 1080ti on the other hand didn't do this at all.
I personally have no problems with my card - But from the logs i've looked at I still believe some issues that folks are having with these cards is due to the poor power throttling/control. A 50 watt spike every 500ms in some cases logically doesn't seem like it's a good thing.
Gamers Nexus found out some things that match up with my experience. Playing on my monitor i dont think i had any issues. However, game streaming to my tv, which i would lock to 60hz, would get the intermittent ctd/bsod. So maybe something with lower refresh rates on gsync monitors? Would also make sense why it seemed intermittent enough for me to not look in to, it probably only happened when i was on the couch.
Just about to ask this. No issues with my Gigabyte Gaming OC or the three others I ended up selling to friends, two of which were FE cards. Zero coil whine too, unlike most of the cards I've had in the past.
Have never used PX1 software. Exclusively AB. Have successfully flashed BIOS and still no issues.
The AIB cards seem fine. I’d just stay away from FE cards until information comes out about them.
Gamersnexus is getting all sorts of cards in, not just FE.. Though I'm sure FE will be heavily represented just because of greater early availability.
Most of the AIB cards so far use reference PCB's anyways.
This is a reference PCB issue, I'm 99% sure of it. Not calling der8auer a liar, but I'm not taking the word of anyone who is directly profiting from RTX 2080 Ti sales.
I know for a fact my ZOTAC AMP 2080 Ti bricked out of nowhere after a month of heavy use. ZOTAC received my card today with a direct signature. I will be sure to let everyone know how they handle my RMA.
I have the same card, started seeing some weird stuff happening with it but might just be that COD BO4 is really buggy?
Here's my deal. Got the card Oct. 3. Gamed heavily on it until Oct. 29. I overclocked, max power limit of +115%, +100 core, +500 memory. Everything was fantastic, the card boosted close to 2.1GHz and never saw temps above 70c. I played many different games and NEVER saw artifacts. I think I had one or two BSOD's, but that was while playing NS2 which is a game I had BSOD issues with on my 1080Ti and Titan Xp.
Then came Oct. 29. I was on the desktop, doing some web browsing. Out of nowhere the screen went black, and re-booted into low resolution mode. Device Manager reported that Windows stopped the display adapter because of problems, and an "Error Code 43." I re-installed Windows 10. I cleaned the drivers using DDU and re-installed. I tried every driver set. I tried a different monitor. I took the card out and re-seated it. Nothing worked. The drivers would install, and Windows would boot into desktop for a max of 5 seconds before black screen rebooting into low res mode again.
The card was dead. Zotac refused paying for RMA shipping. This is where I currently stand. I had no problems running my machine with Intel integrated graphics. I have no problems with the FE RTX 2080 that I have purchased from Best Buy.
MY ADVICE TO YOU: DO NOT RUN THE CARD AT FULL POWER LIMIT. I did see power % fluctuate beyond 115. It would hit several percentage points beyond that. Don't touch the voltage. Don't overclock the memory. That's all I can suggest.
We know from der8aurer that the non-FE rates at the retailer he works at are 0.17% for the 2080 and 1.4% for the 2080ti which are not above expectations.
We don’t have any real numbers on the FE cards.
