    Have to say though, I've honestly never seen anything like this before. More than a month after launch, and so many people who ordered at launch don't even have an ETA yet - or even an ETA of when they might have an ETA!
    Crazy.

    It's a decent GPU score but it is being held back by the CPU.

    Holy hell, there are still only 2 fulfilled FTW3 Ultra orders on the 3080 tracker. Mine really is a unicorn.

    I upgraded my Power Supply to a 1000W Corsair unit today (From 750W) in the hopes that it would actually let me draw more than 400W on my GPU. It did not. For some reason even with the 450W bios, my GPU is still pegged at 400W.

    At least my 12V rail voltages are healthier, before they were dipping to 11.9V under load, now they are sitting steady at 12.3V. I'll see if it gives me any more overclocking stability as a result.

    Mmmmm maybe I was mistaken, they'll still take orders and at least they dropped their price... I don't know why some cards say on order and some say pre-order, it's weird.

    They did say they're expecting some gigabyte cards next week, so you could take a chance on that

    Is it though? From the testing I ran, and results I saw (GPU score)
    16k not great/OK at the higher end
    17k OK/good
    18K good/great
    19k amazing

    Thanks, I’ve sent them an email so will see what they say. May as well ask about the gigabytes too

    finally got over 2000 mhz core avg in superposition, timespy and port royal with +180 core and +940 mem [can't change power limit in afterburner so all this on stock power/voltage]

    • Memory 10,240 MB
    • Clock frequency 2,175 MHz (1,440 MHz)
    • Average clock frequency 2,004 MHz
    • Memory clock frequency 1,305 MHz (1,188 MHz)
    • Average memory clock frequency 1,305 MHz
    • Average temperature 59 °C

    However playing games like metro exodus and rdr2 is totally different story

    had to limit overclock to +150 core and +780 mem

    modern warfare and cold war beta could handle slightly higher clocks but those first 2 are good stress testers of your card

    trio 3080 has the 3x8pin connectors flash the strix 450watt bios and unleash that beast.

    mate who cares, 3070 has 46 SM
    2080ti has 68 SM same as 3080 lol..
    3070 is going to be slow poke

    that’s low, my 2080ti strix with 360watt bios does 16850 gpu score on a 3600 ryzen @4.4

    you should be in the mid 17s low 18s at least

    So basically, it’s an excellent card to water block and go for a big OC. Otherwise get the cheapest 3080 you can.

    You might want to look into the curve editor if you want consistently high clocks across all applications without risk of crashing. Superposition is power limited on the 3080 so even with a high frequency offset it will not randomly boost to unusable frequencies. Games on the other hand will use less of the die sometimes and cause the frequency to shoot up without being power constrained. If you cap the top of the curve and pull the whole curve up you can get high average clocks without the accidental moonshots in games by keeping the maximum possible boost below the crash point.

    Decent under the circumstances of being held back by the CPU that is.
