    Got a Zotac blower 2070, well at $749 it was the cheapest around. Card runs hot but I have a ml08 and blowers always suck great news is I can stick a kraken g12 and 120 rad seen a review of it doing 54cel so I’m going to give it a go ✌️

    Are there any articles on boost 4.0 I seen boost stated doesn’t really mean a lot and the cards will go past it if temp tpd are all good.

    If this isn't trolling, I don't know what is.

    Perhaps stick to your AMD hype thread, as you clearly aren't interested in this series of cards.

    Asus is even offering a 2080ti as blower. Insane. Users are reporting the GPU is at 75C after 1 minute.

    Indeed, unnecessary, biased comment by him in the linked post. On the other hand, it's undeniable that many users report issues with the 2080ti. I am in the market to buy one, but if you read the negative comments about the 2080ti on amazon.com by confirmed buyers, you get a bit scared.

    I'd get one to put under water. Makes sense to me.

    Much like all modern tech, these cards are under massive scrutiny to perform (and rightfully so!), but that unfortunately means that every minor inconvenience or set-back will be reported, even if it only affects a small portion of users.

    I'm also in the market for a 2080 Ti, and after a fair bit of research, the issues that arose at launch appear to be slowly ironed out.

    Given $$ you spent, you shouldn't have to be a guinea pig for NVidia.
    It's not like AMD is right behind them forcing them to release RTX2080Ti prematurely.

    there are plenty of 1080Ti's that have DVI you should just swap one.

    It is exactly what I also think. The expectations are extremely high if you pay 1500+ USD for a video card, disappointment is almost guaranteed for those coming from a 1080ti, and that leads to negative comments. The other question is whether the hardware issues resulting in BSOD and artefacts were only for the initial production and have been sorted out, or are still existing. nVidia admitted the issue with their 2080ti FE, but did not explain the cause: “Limited test escapes from early boards caused the issues some customers have experienced” is a bit vague.

    OK..so I got a new RTX 2080 recently...(vanilla 2080 Gigabyte Windforce)...everything seems to be going OK apart from some random stuttering occasionally. Im playing a few different games like Squad / Project Cars 2 and Assetto Corsa Competizione...and occasionally the game just grinds to a stuttery mess...from 144 fps down to 20 - 25 and becomes a slideshow for about 10 - 15 seconds then comes good again. I have checked Afterburner and the temps do not go over 70 on the vid card..so im not sure whats going on?
