In this case I can say that 123% on FE and EVGA card are the same.

Can you tell us what the max power setting of the FTW3 will be?

Does the "EVGA RTX 2080 XC Black" get this bios update as well?
I am curious because I consider stepping up from a gtx 1080ti ftw3 but I do not want to leave the oc potential behind.

Much obliged.
 
That is very good to hear, any information on it being a variant A chip?
 
The techpowerup article stated, there would be two versions.
With  variant A being the "binned" one used for overclocked cards, while the variant without A would be used for MSRP non-oc cards.
 
The black edition has a mild overclock of 30mhz so it will be the A variant right?

I'm not sure why but my card is running at 0% fan speed by default. Can anyone help me with this? EVGA 2080ti XC Ultra.

I think 0% when the card is fairly cool is normal. The fan turns on when the temp hits around 50C. I've played with custom fan curves that are at 0% until the card hit's 45C, then turns on the fan to 40% and ramping up from there, works well. I don't see a great advantage to a custom curve with my card, so I mostly just use the default fan setting. Since my pc is only used for gaming a small percentage of the day, saving wear and tear on the fan, plus less dust in the heatsink seems like a good idea, so I like the fan shut down while the card idles.

are XC ultra cards binned to be higher than XC cards  for 2080Ti's ? I would rather save some money because I am planning on WC ing and the stock cooler mean nothing.

% means nothing if we dont know how much is the default power limit in watts.

 
Well... we do know that 130% is better than 123%. Why would knowing how many Watts help you any? Do you know how many fps you get from 1 Watt? Assuming you don't, why would you can about the units? Surely the % improvement in power limit is far more useful?




Because different companies use different watt baselines. So saying x % change doesn't mean much without the baseline number. 123% for EVGA may not be the same as 123% for the FE.


thanks dude.
it is really hard nowadays for ppl to open up the latest gpuz and select "advanced" then choose "nvidia bios" to have a look on power limit in watts.
 
so, according to techpowerup's reviews, the fe's default 100% is in 260w, and 123% is in 320w.
then 130% should be 338w, the current highest one among tpu reviewed samples.
sadly i am not rich enough to buy rtx , so i cant open up the gpuz to confirm that. poor me.

good to see evga really listening to the community's request of raising the power limit this time. more and more users/enthusiasts realise the benefit of having high power limit. at least those real enthusiasts can now have an additional alternative of playing their card.
great job evga, and it also shows evga's confidence to their cooling design.

Can we get a 2080Ti XC Ultra bios with a 140% power limit? The design looks like it can handle that no problem. In the old days I'd just mod the bios myself, but I don't know what the status of bios-modding current cards is. Still possible?

flashing modded bios is not possible since pascal.
but cross flashing official bios from other aib is being allowed by using some modded nvflash version.
some overclock.net user has flashed other aib's bios for his rtx card. it wont brick the card but he reported that his card wont work properly (3d loading frequency (p state) is messy ) after flashing another aib bios. i have encounted the same thing on my old pascal card. some bios just wont work properly on some card. looks like turing has the same problem.

My first post here, so Hi everyone!
 
I was wondering this also. I did some searching and couldn't find any evidence that it is. Most related threads seemed to suggest the only difference was the chunkier 3 slot cooler and +25mhz boost clock (which is common for the cards with bigger coolers to have slightly higher factory OC). They both use the same TU102-300A chip found in the founders edition, which I understand is the superior of the two variants (300 non-A versions being the lower tier non factory overclocked ones). Given the kind of overclocks users are achieving on these chips I doubt further binning would be needed for +25mhz.
 
In saying all this though, I have not seen any official information from EVGA stating whether or not they do any further binning of their 300A chips between the XC Gaming and XC Ultra. It would be interesting to hear from EVGA whether this is true or not.


I too am intending to watercool my GPU so I chose the XC gaming version. The Ultra is a minimum of $100 more here in Australia and the 3 slot IO bracket would look a bit strange once the waterblock is on, I also have my GPU mounted vertically so 2 slot is more practical.
 
This will be my first EVGA card, and it was the 130% power limit that convinced me to buy it over a founders edition :)

I'm currently waiting for the EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti XC BLACK EDITION GAMING, 11G-P4-2282-KR from the step up.

When will an official bios appear for this card?

Thank you very much!

some of us have our evga cards watercooled. for the love of god, please release a higher power target, to match near 380watt galax. my card is 46c full load, and unable to oc more due power limit.

True but if he bricks is one is screwed as it would void warranty.

If the card has a bios switch like found on a ftw3 card then one could try flashing the 2nd bios.. if it fails they can atleast swap back to the master and not void warranty.

Re: EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti / 2080 XC/XC Ultra BIOS Update 2018/10/06 19:44:14 (permalink)
I read over on OCN that the current EVGA 2080Ti BIOS is 338W while Gigabyte's latest BIOS for their Gaming OC variant (also a reference PCB with a 300A chip) is capable of 366W. Is there any reason why the EVGA XC cards can't reach this this level of power draw? It would be awesome if we could get an optional 366W or 380W BIOS from EVGA for those of us who aren't bound by high temperatures. I'm going to be watercooling my 2080Ti XC Gaming, as many other people are also doing. This would be a much welcome option for us. Otherwise we end up having to flash the BIOS from other brands to raise the power limit.

If it did, I'm sure in bold letter's they'd tell you but they won't officially announce something only to take your warranty away.  Therefore, you should be good to go m8.

after this firmware update, my previous OC crashed at +150 on the core clock. Now I have to tone it down to +125 :(
