Can someone confirm that? The 3080 Ti FTW3 Ultra comes with a 450w power limit from the factory on the default/normal BIOS?
Which software is most recommended to try and increase power? MSI Afterburner?
I own one, and no. The listed specs are for 350w, and PX1 allows for an additional 13% (395.5w). MSI Afterburner, which is what I prefer to use for OSD purposes, seems to only allow for an additional 12% and explains why I have not personally seen above 392w. Although, MSI Afterburner hasn't had a version update since this card was released, so maybe a future version will allow for the +13%. What I don't understand is why the OC BIOS is the same version as the Normal BIOS (94.02.71.00.B0). When I first installed the card, PX1 performed a BIOS update, and that was with the selector switch set to Normal. Once I ensured the card was working, I powered down and switched to the OC BIOS, but PX1 had no update for it. As far as I can tell, both the Normal and OC BIOS behave identically, probably because it's the same version.
