The specs are identical (I checked). They look the same. But one is $170 pricier (and "limit 2 per household"). There must be something better about it, but I don't see it.

     Might have to call EVGA CS on that question ... specs look the same
     
    Could be A-chip vs the non-A chip GPU
     
    TU102-300-K1-A1 are Normal Chips (no factory OC permitted).
    TU102-300A-K1-A1 are Binned Chips (factory OC permitted).
    Both support manual overclocking

    Both offer the same performance. The difference is in the components that are used on the pcb itself. When evga creates another part # for the same gpu that has identical specs it means the components on the pcb have changed. 2280 is the older card with 2380 being the newer one.

    WHat's funny is when you do a 'COMPARE'  -- the only difference noted is that 1 says it is VR ready & the other says no.

    2280 uses a non-a chip as it's classified as 1E04 on the device id for the vbios of the card... https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/217559/217559
     
    1E07 is the a chip or better quality chip.

    I couldn't find a vbios dump for the 2380 card, so we can't actually tell if it's using an a chip, or if evga just changed other components on the pcb itself.

    Interesting and confusing. LOL!  Always thought the blacks were for non-A chips.  Common EVGA, get your stuff together!

    That's an error.  I'll fix that.

    Right.  Originally it was only a Black Edition blower GPU.  I guess there are others in the mix now that I didn't know about, hense the confusion.

    cool to know this new blower 2080ti by evga is the better A chip.    Makes me think more about getting it.    But i may just wait for the 3080ti by now.    ; )

    Eh, this card is cheaper, has the a-chip and better cooler:
     
    https://www.evga.com/products/product.aspx?pn=11G-P4-2282-KR
     
    The blower is really loud if you run it fast enough to keep the card under 70C and still pretty loud at 80C.
     
    Either that card or a 2080S FTW3 for major cost savings.
