Are we getting similar BIOS for 3080 Ti?

I could have gotten 3000$ for my 3080 FTW3 Ultra during the madness but I kept it and now I get to watch it de-value...lol it's a powerhouse card with this XOC bios though...couldnt part with it.

Hi guys, are the ones in the OP the latest versions? I just got the evga ftw3 ultra. If i install the xoc oc bios 450w must the card be on water or with decent airflow it's ok?

Yes. And it is possible to run the 450watt BIOS on an air-cooled card. It doesn't have to be water-cooled. Just make sure you have proper airflow in your case. Also when installing the XOC BIOS make sure to install the one that matches the setting on the Dual-BIOS switch that you want the XOC BIOS to be installed on.

The 3080Ti FTW3 Ultra comes with a 450watt power limit out of the box.

So, I just got my EVGA FTW3 Ultra 3080 today and have tried both normal and oc 450w bios and nether install. says "no display adaptors were found that are compatible with this update". anybody else have this issue?

I got mine yesterday too! You are probably like me and have one of the -KL versions (as opposed to the original KR), KL is the same card minus the hash rate for cryptocurrency mining. More than likely we need new links from Jacob that will match our board versions, as our current ones would be unrecognized by the bios installer.

After seeing your reply, I double checked and yes I have a KL version.  hopefully that's the reason and we can get a new bios soon. Thanks for the info!

Hi guys, so I flashed the XOC bios on my ultra gaming 3080 ftw3, and when Precision X1 turned on it said I needed a firmware update. What firmware is it? Is that something different to bios?
Should I use Precision X1 or afterburner better? How do I control the LEDS? :) Sorry for all the noob questions

I use Precision and you should be able to control the LEDs from it too. not sure what firmware it is.

Firmware and bios are separate from one another.

Let it do the firmware update, the LED's on the card will turn red and it will blow the fans full speed for a moment while it updates. Won't affect your BIOS flash you already did. The LED's are controlled from one of the tabs on Precision, looks like a light bulb. Pretty straightforward to use, it shows you a picture of the different sections of the video card, you click a section, then change the pattern/colors for it to your liking, rinse and repeat with the rest of the sections :)

Hi, I have the 3080 FTW3 Ultra, but the new low hashrate variant ending in KL, as opposed to KR.
 
When attempting to update to 450W bios, I'm getting "no display adapters were found that are compatible with this update."
Please add new ones, and please do this for the Hybrid as well... ordered a hybrid kit, but without flashing to hybrid bios it causes errors for people. Clearly I'm not going to be able to use the current Hybrid XOC bios because of my KL card.
 
Edit: In PX1, my vbios version is 94.02.71.40.A9. Everything except the A9 corresponds to 3080 TI's, and 3080 TI's *only* across all manufacturers. Did EVGA ship out weakened 3080 TI's and brand them with the 3080 logos, hindered only by a vbios verison? Would explain why I can't flash any standard 3080 bios onto this thing.

EVGA is silent on the issue in this thread and on twitter. Are we just going to need to refund our cards and hope we can buy a hybrid without another 10 month wait?

I got a response from Jacob on twitter 2 days ago. I was asking for a status update on the 450w XOC bios for KL models and he was asking which card I had and I responded with the 3080 FTW3 Ultra but nothing since then so maybe soon.

I'd imagine they have to be careful which BIOS gets released per Nvidia, and possibly Nvidia reviews them before they can give them the go ahead. That way they don't have some fiasco where the non-LHR BIOS is being applied to the LHR cards like the 3060 had. Just a guess, but it wouldn't surprise me if that were the case.

Hello all. I did to my FTW3 Ultra the rebar automatic update via X1 on the normal bios. Is it possible to flash the XOC bios here posted (BIOS 2 (OC)) in the OC bios (switched to OC)? Is it needed anything like nvflash or anything like that? How much W does this bios allows? I appreciate any info. Thanks!

I just purchased the 10G-P5-3897-KL as was hoping to use the 450W bios on it but as others have said the KL isn't working. I AM HAPPY to wait for an update here for it but if there is no fix for this issue planned I would like to return the card. Other brand and less expensive card I could have without the 450w bios is about the same performance. I was specifically interested in the ftw3 ultra because of this 450W bios. I thought the KL cards only impacted mining which I do not care about. Thanks.
 
I got an answer to this in case anyone has an LHR card. The 450w bios can be found here:

Pretty please?  Need to get that 3rd 8-pin power up.

Is anyone hitting power limit after installing XOC bios (on OC side of switch) ?. I got power limits when set 1050mv@2220mhz and run some tests like 3dm, and my 3rd power connector shows little usage, like half of the power 1 and 2 uses. Is this normal? My version is the non capped one, KR 3080 FTW3 Ultra.

Sounds about right. 
PCIe delivers 75W of power, 8Pin connector - 150
75+150+150 = 375, so you're 75W (1/2 of 150) short, that's what you see on 3rd.

That's a common issue, even with the 450w BIOS the card hits the power limit and throttles at 400w. 8-Pin #3 shows half the power draw of #1 and #2. My 3080 FTW3 is the same.
 
There are tons of reports of it in this thread, or in other threads on this forum e.g:

There is no known fix or workaround and EVGA have not officially acknowledged the issue (despite acknowledging a very similar/identical issue with the 3090 FTW3).

Ok thank you very much for your responses. Yes, was forgetting about the 75w that pcie provides, so that's giving me the power limit ok. If the 3rd 8pin connector is basically a 6pin as other says, this is really a drawback from EVGA. Even worse in the case of 3090's. So there should be no point over a higher wattage bios for this cards, if this is true. Very disappointing.

My first 3000 series card was the 3080 FTW3 Ultra, I really can't remember me having that problem with that card tbh.
My 3090 however, could never reach 500 watts (with the 500w XOC bios) so I rma'd it. I have not seen EVGA offer that for the any other cards than the 3090 cards though.

Yea, it seems that some cards, possibly more often the earlier cards, will happily pull 450w and pull from all 3 8-pin connectors equally. There is some speculation that it was a hardware level change EVGA made to reduce failures (red light of death?).
 
It doesn't appear to be something that relates to the BIOS, as the voltage controller isn't programmable, and decides based on various physical readings. Seems to be hardware related, as EVGA are RMA'ing and replacing 3090 FTWs that have the exact same issue.
3090 FTW3 Ultra Uneven Power Draw Across 8-pin cables? - EVGA Forums
 
Its certainly is an unfortunate situation, since as far as I was aware before I bought this card (and passed my thermal pad modded 3080FE to my brother) I thought it was a 450w card not a 400w card. Right now all I'm gaining is 30w of power draw, while having to deal with that all 400w of heat is ejected into the case, while with the FE it was exhausting at least 150w out the slot.

So the 3090 FTW3 Ultra v1.0 (the one that has the red light of death fix) has this same workaround... I had one and tested and it was pretty similar to this 3080's FTW3 ultras, the 3rd power connector would always take less input that the others, and never reaches the max supposed power. What a move from EVGA.
