bavor I had another question about the warranty. I purchased the extended warranty and the advanced RMA for my GTX 1080 ti. The warranty from the 1080 ti carried over to the RTX 2080, but the advanced RMA didn't. Why is that?
EVGATech_DanielMIn regards to the performance, can you provide us the links to these tests rather than screenshots?
RainStrykeOn a side note, the memory on that RTX 2080 is good for a 1000MHz+ to overclock.
bavorBefore you posted a link to your 1080 ti results that showed a clock speed of 1987 MHz when compared ot mine:https://www.3dmark.com/compare/fs/20010235/fs/20878622# The comparison you posted showed the 1080 ti at a much lower clock speed of 1886 MHz with the 2080 at 1995 MHz. Also the memory clock was at 1377 MHz vs the previous results showing 1477 MHz. https://www.3dmark.com/compare/fs/20915547/fs/20915472I understand they both were at stock clocks. I understand the policy, but who buys a FTW3 Hybrid card to run it at stock clocks? I still feel that my replacement GPU is slower than the one I had previously, but there is nothing I can do about it because of the policy. It seems that the policy is out of touch with the end user who buys the higher tiered products with better cooling for the intention of overclocking. The few game benchmarks that I have from the 1080 ti are still higher FPS at the same settings than the 2080 at its maximum stable overclock. However the newest 1080 ti results that I have are from spring and summer of 2019, so they are all from at least a few months before I received the 2080. Its just hard to believe that scores in benchmarks and FPS in games can change 10% or more in a few months. I have tried two Corsaid fans meant for watercoolign radiators in a push pull configuration on the radiator of my 2080 to make it run cooler and that still can't give me the same results as my 1080 ti did. I put the 2080 in a new Ryzen 3800X system where the CPU water cooled and over clocked and still can't obtain the same graphics benchmark scores I received with my 1080 ti. I'll do a fresh Windows 10 install on my old 6700K system to see if I can get the 2080 to give any better results and to compare the drivers from last summer vs now to see if there is any difference. Basically, I feel that the policy is the same as if Intel replaced an i7-3770K with an i7-3700 under warranty because they both give the same benchmark results when run at stock speeds. Yes I know old CPUs in the example, but that was back when the K series CPUs and the non K CPUs had the same base and boost clocks.
HoggleThe performance should be pretty close to equal and it's also worth considering the ray tracing feature which is starting to become important I feel but admit it's something that is different to each gamer. I personally would rather play Cyberpunk 2077 on the 2080 then a 1080Ti.
KILLER_KIf you have an 11Gb card you should get back an 11Gb card.
EVGATech_DanielM I completely understand where you are coming from but we cannot take any type of overclocking into consideration when replacing a product based on performance. The tests I posted are from the driver from that date on a clean OS. This is exactly how we gauge the replacement options. The cards I tested were factory spec and still boosted above the advertised clocks. I do apologize you are frustrated.
EVGATech_DanielMThis would not be the same as swapping a K for a non K chip as it simply has features that are locked away from the consumer with a 3770 and that is not remotely close to what we do.
EVGATech_DanielMNot all cards clock the same but if you sent in a silicon lottery GPU which it sounds like you did, we would not go through every card to see if we can test each individual one to match the exact performance. The performance difference you are describing are a few FPS at the most. The original 1987 speed was on my system and the GPU simply boosted to that speed and no overclock was set and your previous 1080Ti in GPU still beat mine. It just sounds like you sent in an extremely clockable 1080Ti.
SirFafferBenchmarks aside, the 1080ti is faster than a 2080 is most cases AND it has 11gb vs 8gb of vram. He states 4k, which means he's going to make use of the extra frame buffer. Surely this means he has been given a downgrade.

I feel that I've been given a downgrade at multiple resolutions, which I've shown above. The silence from EVGA means they don't care even though they have been shown proof of the downgrade. It makes me question if paying extra for EVGA products because of the warranty is worth it. If they find it acceptable to give customers a downgrade, then why pay extra for EVGA products?
