IonstormEUI'm kind of disgusted that partners are still power limiting GPUs. What's more disgusting is they're doing it on a XC Ultra, what's the point of getting a pre binned GPU, having a custom pcb and power... And then nurfing it in to the ground with limits? There is legit people with 2070 supers at £50 less getting over 2.1ghz and I struggle to maintain 2ghz. What's the deal? Because support doesn't give a crap, which isn't looking promising for future EvGA purchases.
IonstormEUYou're clueless, evga sells gpus at the founders edition power limits.They have neglected to do it for this one.If EVERY partner stands up to them they'd have no one making GPUs for them.
jonkrmr 1) Nvidia dictates what max power limit their GPU is allowed2) Nvidia has to sign off on every BIOS a AIB creates for a Nvidia chip product in their lineup3) Nvidia encrypts the BIOS they approved so it cannot be modified by the end consumer4) Nvidia specified AIBs can only up max power limit past Nvidia specified on cards denoted as over clocked versions and then only to the limit Nvidia approves during BIOS validation5) Any AIB Nvidia partner that refuses to sell Nvidia product because they do not agree with Nvidia rules or goes against Nvidia's rules will no longer be an Nvidia partner.............. See the pattern here? Nvidia is the only one to blame and complain about here. Has really nothing to do with EVGA, their hands are tied by contractual obligation.
IonstormEUI've only built PC's for over 24 years, I know nothing at all about GPUs or overclocking them or PC's for that matter.
IonstormEUThey do not state power limits on GPUs.If you had bothered to read Gamers Nexus states this is a pre binned chip with a custom pcb and power delivery.
IonstormEUAlso BIOSs can be edited anyway so this whole cry about them being locked is a joke anyway.
spit051261That sounds like a challenge.
