Asus ROG Strix 3080 ti
So by some extreme luck, I was able to acquire an ROG Strix 3080 ti at about twice the msrp.
While overclocking, I noticed that my card would go as far as 2130 MHz with max power and thermal target.
The cooler was able to keep it under 80C whle running, but the clocks were achieved when the card was not in full load.
I also noticed that the maximum power target is 450W, which is well documented, but I wonder will there be a bios that unlocks the power target to, let's say, 500W?
Asus GPU Tweak II also does not work well with the card. Although the overclock scanner works well, the card would actually perform worse in games rather than synthetic benchmarks with the oc scanner applied. We are talking less than 60 fps in 4K league of legends when msi afterburner does over 240 with max settings. Not an amazing tool to test game performance, but seeing how it does decently in 3D mark firestrike extreme really makes me think that either the card or the software is still not optimized enough.
So far it seems that the cooler handles well under a constant ~440W power, petition to increase the power to maybe 480W?
