madreagSame issue here... Flashed the OC side with the XOC beta, and was able to confirm 119% in PX1 and GPU-Z... BUT in practice, it doesn't go any higher than the old power limit of 107%. Reinstalling PX1 didn't fix the problem.BTW... how do I get GPU-Z to show the actual power limits in watts instead of % under the advanced tap?
SajinEasy. You want true xoc potential. You buy Kingpin. 😁OrIt could just be a bug.
ehabash1all the ftw3 owners have reported that it's not working for them but users coming from other cards that flash the bios are reporting that its workingso it appears the issue is related to the method of implementation If you flash the bios the traditional way it should work. If you DL, execute the zip folder that jacob listed it will not work I'm not recommending you flash though because of risk/warrantyHowever, maybe this info will help Evga pinpoint the problem
jedi95SajinEasy. You want true xoc potential. You buy Kingpin. 😁OrIt could just be a bug.I'm not looking to run LN2/DICE on the card. (That's what the Kingpin cards are for) In the past the FTW3 cards have been excellent choices for maxing out on ambient cooling. The 500W limit should be about right for this, but it looks like EVGA dropped the ball on this one by pulling too much power from the PCI-E slot. I don't think this is a bug. Each power connector has an individual power limit in addition to the total card power limit. I'm seeing the PCI-E slot drawing 75-80W constantly with the 8-pin connectors in the 115-120W range. So 100% of the maximum on PCI-E, and only 75-80% of the maximum on the 8-pins. I won't rule out that my card is faulty in some way. For the other FTW3 owners: can one of you guys run a strongly GPU bound test (like 3dmark or 4K games) with this BIOS and 119% power target (500W) and post a screenshot of the HWInfo64 monitoring page?
LordGurciulloThis looks like a lot of fun. A few quick questions. 1. If I switch Just the OC bios and decide I want to go back for whatever reason. How do I do that?2. On air do you think this can actually bring gains? I know that above 45c it pulls clock and then again at 55c (If my testing is accurate). 3. This doesn't risk any warranty obviously right?
ChamidorixAgain, it will transiently peak above 450; the power balancing is far from instantaneous. What is your average sustained draw? This should be around 450. As stated, the card should easily pull 500W throughout the entirety of Time Spy Extreme if truly not limited since the 2080ti could. Hopeful to be proven wrong or a victim to PEBCAK.
