UPDATE: These are now legacy updates as it only needed to be applied on the first shipping cards. All new shipping cards now have these updates.
 
 
Updates:
  • Increases maximum power target setting to 130% (Improved overclocking performance)
_________________________________________________________________________
 
 
Q. Do I need to reapply this update every time I update a driver or reinstall the O.S.? 
A. This update is attached to the card, no matter where it goes. If you update the driver, the EVGA BIOS update is still applied. 
  
Q. How can I tell if I have this update already? 
A. You can check with EVGA Precision X1, if your maximum Power Target setting is 130%, you already have the update applied.
  
Q. I just bought my card, will it have this updated firmware? 
A. As new firmware is released, new products shipping from EVGA will also have this firmware version applied. 
 
Q. How do I apply the BIOS to both cards on an SLI system?
A. On SLI systems the BIOS is automatically applied to both cards.
 
Q. The Flash is not completing.
A. Try running the executable as adminstrator (right click run as admin) if still not working, please contact us at support@evga.com

Thanks EVGA
I Think Pre-Owners and New Owners (And Per-Order Owners even the Ones Who canceled their Own Order) really should work with EVGA with New Products.

I am gonna assume that this bios will be implemented in the 2080Ti FTW3 Ultra upon it's release?

Can someone with an XC or XC ultra load and post their results for the actual overclock on the card? Does the enhanced power target help much?

Well because of this I will buy a EVGA card now. Thank you!
 
It is planned for the FTW3 or Hybrid to increase the Powerlimit over 338W?

Yea. Just check before and after. Anyone know the baseline bios version number? The upgraded version number? Be nice to know that. (For each part number.)

Overclocks for my 2080 Ultra

Core +110, boost to 2070mhz
Memory - + 850
Updated card bios to get +130 power
Power/temp/ voltage Sliders maxed.

2080 ultra beating my 1080ti (Aorus extreme) using benchmark time spy extreme (4K). 2080 is 6% faster.

an incredible new bios for cards you can't buy because there is no shops who have them available.
yeah!

They were available if you were quick with preordering, my 2080Ti Ultra from evga arrives Monday, just checked current tracking. I'm guessing general availability won't be too much more of a wait. I've been kicking myself that I didn't pay the extra $20 for next day shipping instead of 2 day, so I could have gotten it yesterday.

Wow, I regret that I should have waited for EVGA 2080Ti.
Instead, I bought the other available brand and the power limit of 115% restricted the oc performance.
Still with 115% limit, my graphic score of time spy is 16085.
https://www.3dmark.com/spy/4447746
I am sure that the number can go up with 130% power limit.
So, does any of you know that this 130% EVGA bios can also be applied to the other 2080Ti?
Any help/info would be appreciated.

Got a max boost to GPU clock of +145mhz, every time I set it to 150 it crashes. Memory is +1000. I can do this OC with 120 power or 130 power and it makes little difference. Would like to know what other people got in the way of a clock speed increase as I was a bit disappointed, the extra power helps somewhat but I am impressed with the scores on 115% compared to 130%.

Any tips to getting the core higher? I've never OCed a GPU before, doesn't seem as involved as a CPU.

Re: EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti / 2080 XC/XC Ultra BIOS Update 2018/09/23 03:57:16 (permalink)
To Spikey101,
From my experience, one of the most important factors for high score 3DMark is how to keep temp low. 
I am using an external water cooling loop called MO-RA3 420 Pro and the max temp I get for the short 3DMark test is 34~34 celsius. It's for everyday use setting not just for the benchmarking.
For your reference, my setting for that score is core +135 / mem +1000 and my 2080ti is emtek rtx 2080 ti black edition oc. + water block.
Other than that, things I do for 3DMark benchmarking are below.
 
[Nvidia Control Panel Setting]
1) Windows Resolution : 1920 x 1080 x 60Hz (regardless of the actual Monitor max resolution/Hz)
2) turn every sync off (G-Sync, Free-Sync, V-Sync, Fast-Sync...)
3) Powermanagement mode : Max Performance
If you are using G-Sync monitor, I recommend using normal monitor since you will get the lower score even when you turn g-sync off.
I have 2 monitors and use non-gsync monitor for 3DMark. (completely disconnect G-sync monitor from PC)
 
Also, turn every unnecessary background programs running off before running 3DMark test.
 
That's my tips from my experience. Hope it helps~ 
 
From people around me, they are also hitting power limit very fast. So EVGA's new bios will allow higher score with more power limit room. EVGA rocks!!!

Forget what the +***mhz number you used and look at what the actual end result reported by AB or PX1. In the link you posted above you were hitting 2,130 MHz. It also depends on what is reported as the reason for limiting. Temps, power limit, Vreal. Also comes down to the silicon lottery
 
Generally a good idea to state what card you have and what drivers you are running as well

a gpuz screen cap can tell how many watt is the (new) power limit.

3d mark results for the 970 vs 2080 debate:
system : i7-4790k 16gb ram hybrid 2gb main hdd.
original score with 970 time spy graphics 3680 overall 3767.
base before updating bios and running the precision x1 on the new 2080: 10943 graphics, overall 8906
after the bios update and running precision x1 scan: overall 9156, graphics 11,430

Yea. Just check before and after. Anyone know the baseline bios version number? The upgraded version number? Be nice to know that. (For each part number.)



My baseline bios number on 2080 XC Ultra was 90.04.0B.40.38
New bios number 90.04.0B.40.BB
 
When you update the bios it tells you previous version # then new version #


My original bios was 90.02.0B.00.67 which was only +112% for power.
Flashing with the new bios was 90.02.0B.00.E4 which is +130% power.
Video card is the 2080Ti XC ultra.

Flashing with the new bios was 90.02.0B.00.E4 which is +130% power.
Video card is the 2080Ti XC ultra.


% 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.

Really? Ohhhh well... in that case, sorry: you are totally correct and I agree with you. That is pretty damn sneaky. Just like Spinal Tap and "No. You don't understand. This one goes to 11, you see?"
