I just built a brand new B560M ( MSI Bazooka ) with a 11th Gen i5 11500. Fresh Windows 10 64 install. Video cards you can not come by today, either on Craigslist for $1000's of dollars or eBay or Amazon, same price. So I drop in my ( not old at all ) 2080 Super. Windows Device manager sees it as a "Microsoft basic display adapter" and nothing I do can change that. DDU, Windows update, Geforce experience, uninstall reinstall Windows, changed the motherboard from a Z590M Asrock ( brought it back to store, the MSI in now is it's replacement and yes it did it with the Z590M as well ).
 
That all said and done, I am lucky enough to have several computers. I take the 2080 Super out of my new build, pop it in my original computer Z370 Win10 64, and there it is. It sees it, so nothing wrong with the video card. I take a 1070 GTX FTW2 and drop that in the new B560M build, Windows sees it as a 1070 in Device Manager.
 
Why in the world does Windows not see my 2080 in my brand new build? Why should I resort to a 1070 for it to work properly? Do I need to wait for Windows to update? Can't install Nvidia drivers if Windows does not see the card at all. Again, nothing wrong with the card ( tested ) nothing wrong with the PCIE slot on new motherboard. All issues IMO are pointing at Windows! Try installing drivers directly no Geforce experience needed, get some error message that is something like " Does not support the version of Windows." I have a fully legit version of Windows as well.
 
Does anyone have any insight on this problem? Anyone come across this issue with their EVGA video card? My local Micro Center has some RX 6700 XT's in stock, is it time to jump ship and join team red? I have never had an issue like this in all my PC builds.

    Odd. Is your motherboard bios fully up to date?

    This motherboard is so new, it only has the BIOS it was shipped with. No update as yet on their side. One of the first things I check after a good build boots up is a BIOS update afterwards. I brought the Asrock Z590M back to the store thinking something was up with the board. I then decided to bring back the i5 K as well. I dumbed down the motherboard to a B560M and also non-K i5 . And the same thing happened. 
     
    I have the older 1070 in the new build now, and my old Z370 I use as a HTPC, tossed the 2080 in it. All is good but backwards. I really would rather have my 2080 in my budget game rig I just built.
