    This is what makes EVGA one of the best AIBs. Most others would have ignored their customers but EVGA listened and delivered a new bios, good job guys keep it up!

    looks closer to 420W,
     
    380 * 111%
     
    Edit: was wrong, looks higher.

    Any chance we can get a higher power limit for the XC3 Ultra? Feeling jealous about the higher power limit of the TUF 3080 lol

    Kevinc313 is correct.  The 118% under power is the max target

    So now instead of PwrLmt on GPUz the limited factor I'm getting is VRel, I'm new to using GPUz to figure out why my GPU is being limited, what does that one mean? Voltage Regulation? or what?
    It also only got up to 400W power draw during Port Royal on the OC BIOS which used to get up to 420W on the same settings.  I understand it's a beta, just giving my initial experience feedback.
    Should I reinstall Drivers after the BIOS update just to be on the safe side?

    This:)  3090 FTW3 Ultra owners need a higher power power limit bios, severely power capped at the moment.

    Its 450w now guys! Posting screenshot. Thanks Jacob, for even going above the promised 420w, and now being super competitive with the Asus Rog strix! No more flashing unofficial bioses (I didn't but for the people that did).
     
    I assume, there will be a final version right? Being this a beta.
     
    Testing right now...

    Funny one Jacob. 450w isn't xoc. :P

    If only I could put them on my card... Well the card I don't have yet and won't have for awhile given I'm 9/17 at 10:20 pm. Wondering how it compares with the strix now.
