Hello
I acquired an Evga Geforce RTX 2080 Super XC Ultra graphics card a few days ago on Amazon (France).
At the begining all seemed okay. I installed last Nvidia Game Ready drivers (512.95)
But my worry began when I saw Nvidia drivers displaying the card as a Geforce RTX 2070.
I made a test with GPU-Z that seems to confirm that the card is a 2070 and not a 2080 (but it explains that the card information is retrieved from Windows drivers). It does not confirm that the card is a fake.
 
On the card, I can see the PN as 08G-P4-2183-KR (EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 XC ULTRA)
On Windows, using PCI-Z, I can see 10DE:1F07:3842:2173  as Pci Device ID (Geforce RTX 2070)

But on the card itself, the P/N is good for a 2080. The SN is also okay. But the label text seems strikethrough...
 
So i'm lost, I don't know if my card is a fake or not.
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
Maybe someone can help me ?

    That warranty sticker, while in one piece looks tampered with. I'm wondering if someone scammed Amazon, which in turn screwed you over.

    Does not look legit. File a complaint with Amazon and make an exchange.

    Ok, i've the definitive answer, and it's not good : 
     

     
    So I removed the 30 screws from the card to access the chipset. And it's confirmed as a 2070...
    So UPS will come tomorrow to get the card and send it back to Amazon.
     
    I was also able to see that the screews were already removed in the past. some of them were not screwed completely. This will be reported.
