Hello,
 
I did some testing on my EVGA 3090 FTW3 Ultra / STOCK OC BIOS.
What are you thinking about those numbers? I don't know if everything is within the specs. Especially the overall power draw / pci-e slot power draw and so on.
 
Here are my results. Everything you need to know is in the image discription.

My power draw on default seems to be too low, right? In Port Royal the average is about 360 watts and the tdp average is 85%.
Edit: Below is an image from a Port Royal 5 minute loop run. Default settings.
Edit 2: For some reason I am also not able to send a support ticket. I get an error message all the time.

    The 3090 FTW3 Ultra on the stock OC VBIOS has a 450W power draw (it can spike higher) and yours shows a max of 442W. Yours likely averages a bit lower than the max that you showed, and that average will change depending on the game/benchmark/resolution used. But that does look just fine.

    That 80W PCIE slot power draw max is higher than the PCIE slot spec, which is 75W. A supplemental PCIE (or molex, if you have an older board) power connector can be hooked up on some higher end motherboards to cover that increase. I'd be more concerned with the average PCIE slot power draw, since yours is only spiking to 80W. It likely averages under 75W.
     
    My 3090 FTW3 Ultra (stock OC VBIOS, no overclock) spikes to over 86W and averages up to 82W depending on the benchmark/game/resolution, which is why I am RMAing it. I do overclock which likely will have higher averages and spikes for my card. EVGA's tech support did tell me that up to 85W should be fine (I'm guessing with supplemental power plugged in), but 75W is the spec and I had spikes of 86.3W when completely stock, so that's why I started an RMA on mine.

    The PCIe slot can pull more than 75W.  The spec covers safety limits.  Beyond 75W for sustained use can cause your PCIe slot fingers to melt.  Obviously 80W isn't an issue.  Anything below 100W would be considered safe, although if you're hitting 85W+ I'd be concerned as to *why* it's happening, and not that 85W itself will cause any damage.

    I wouldn't worry about the default so much.  The important thing is that when you're telling it to use more power by raising the power limit, it's reaching that 450W max target.  And your score is pretty much in line with the average for the card.  You could get a bit higher with custom curves for your clock/voltage.  But performance wise I'm not seeing anything out of the ordinary.  Play around with locked voltage/clocks to see what your chip can do.

    Thanks for the answers. I did another few test loops in port royal with OC (Max Power Traget / Max Volatage / 150 Core / 800 Mem). These are my averages. In that order 1080p / 2K / 4K / 8K.

    I can't see your attachments but if I'm seeing your imgur images correctly, you're getting 14500 in the default Port Royal benchmark?  If so, that is definitely an above average card on air!

    Dude I've watched 100s of Port Royal scores.  Over 14500 on air with a 450W bios, without shunt mods or doing fancy things like blowing an AC unit directly on the card, is a really really good score.  Steve from Gamer Nexus could only score 15000 with a Hybrid KingPin card.  Looks like you've got a real winner.  Top 5%.  Congrats!

    Thank you. This is as high as I can get https://www.3dmark.com/3dm/53574224? on the Stock OC Bios I guess. But I am still a bit worried about the PCI-E draw. It seems to average about 77-78 watts. I don't know if I should RMA because of that or not.

    80 W in pcie slot power scares!
    The maximum should be 67w

    The 3090 FTW3 Ultra on the stock OC VBIOS has a cut



    To me EVGA is not responding to tickets My 3080 xc3 ultra stops at 315w because the pcie reaches 67w I opened a ticket last week without receiving a reply. The problem with doing RMA now is that they prob don't have cards for change. In the meantime, I limited the card to 300w and clocked it at 850mV at 1900.

    The maximum is 67 watts at default settings. With max power target I get an average of 76-78 with spikes to 81 watt. Some people say it is within specs. These slots can draw some more power. Some say "Oh my god". And the support is not answering. This sucks.
    And even a RMA is nothing secure. Is even one person here with a 3090 FTW3 Ultra that is not going above 75 watts on the pci-e slot @max power target?
