Well I'm sure that's great for a cartoon...
You seem to be the only one complaining about the driver issue with RTX..
You have the Gigabyte RTX2080Ti C̶r̶a̶p̶f̶o̶r̶c̶e model right? cos there are plenty of people complaining about the heat and noise on that model on Gigabyte forum.
Been doing some research on RTX2080Ti and I think it's really stupid to buy the cheapest RTX2080Ti(250+W TDP) with tiny heatsink unless you plan to watercool.
Most RTX2080Ti have much larger heatsink(45+%) than Windforce, heatsink on Lightning Z is 225% larger than Windforce.
I don't understand how you can make that claim after using only one Gigabyte card with worst heatsink and highest TDP.
Gigabyte Windforce is junk(especially on RTX2080Ti), but Gaming model is pretty decent(that's why they come with 4 years warranty) and Aorus is a great card.
It's your fault for buying the shit cheapest model, and your regular random blue screens are most likely due to overheating issue, not drivers. (how many people have driver issue with RTX card? lol)
nah yeah nah aye im garbage
lol high again? you could have easily got nice RTX2080Ti(Gaming X, Strix, Aorus) with one less gram of ice..
oh noes for only %5 faster performance and 15% higher price!?>!?>!
But it's not just faster performance. Highend card(especially at RTX2080Ti level) also means less noise and lower temperature(better stability and overclock).
Think about it, how many people use $30-$40 cooler on $800 9900K(95+W TDP)? most people use $100+ cooler for better noise/temp/overclock.
So why would you go for cheapest crap cooler on $1600+ RTX2080Ti(250+W TDP)? unless you want 5700XT experience
i have a better cooler on my cpu than gpu, ill probably just flash it with the 350watt bios and shove a decent aftermarket cooler or fans on the stock cooler
9900K 95W lol, he must have boost clocks turned off.
Tested this out and it's actually pretty good! Great results on Division 2.
Also any thoughts on EVGA RTX2080TI FTW
Tempting but apparently noisy?
While there are a number of waterblock makers out there who do blocks for various cards, in which case you've paid for fans you don't need - I've often wondered why card makers don't offer:
1. An option with integrated water block rather than fans;
2. An option with fan headers but no actual cooler/fans - allowing the buyer to fit their fans of choice (hello Noctua).
This could also develop into a PROPER selection of aftermarket GPU coolers, much as we see with CPU coolers.
Now THAT would be cool.
Well there is cards that only have a block, but not many.
Option 2 would be good, bit like my Raijintek paired with 2 x EK Vardar fans it keeps my 1080ti very cool and quiet. under 55c on full load easy, lower temps if u don't mind more noise.
I hope they do a Morpheus cooler for the 2080ti ill be on that quick smart if I end up with a 2080ti.
Does anyone have any experience with Colorful? The price of the 2080 super seems substantially lower than more known brands, to the point where it looks a bit too good to be true.
They're the biggest brand in China IIRC.
Are they any good though?
Probably jank support.
Speaking of jank support, Galax have impressed me immensely with their second-to-none appalling support and communication during an 8 week RMA saga. 10/10 run for your life levels of jank support.
Yea that's what I was worried about as well.
If only the Australian mark up wasn't so bad, would make upgrading my 1080 so much easier.
meh sold 2080S so I'm back to Intel UHD 630.. but my next GPU upgrade's gonna be insanely astounding.. +2,268% boost!!!
titan or go home.
lol that would give me +2,480% boost! but wallet -2,000%
