    This is how you can tell I spend wayyyyy too much time with Time Spy Extreme. Watch the video and watch my prediction. Just by watching the benchmark, I knew the range of points they will receive based off the specs/OC settings used during that benchmark. 2:02:25 mark.

    I really wanted matching Asus Strix 2080 TI's. My cards need to match. The EVGA 2080 TI FTW3 Ultra overclock's much better on air than the Strix's. The EVGA does have a much thicker fin stack though. I'm going to keep pushing it.

    I noticed the Strix vBIOS seems to have a lower power limit than the XC2 or FTW3, which I thought to be very odd. I would have expected the opposite based on how things were with the 1080 Ti Strix XOC.

    It appears that Asus may have three variants of their Strix 2080 TI. They have the Strix Advanced (A11G), Strix Gaming (11G) and Strix OC (O11G). I am not sure if the A11G and O11G are the same card, as Asus only shows two Strix on their website but on Amazon there are three cards. Then there is the Asus Matrix which has the highest factory boost clock of 1815 on the core and 14800 on the memory. The Matrix does have the highest factory OC out of all of the brands I believe, excluding the K|NGP|N and Lightning Z 2080 TI cards.

    I would have gone with another EVGA FTW3 Ultra if they didn't increase the price by $100.

    We need to get our mitts on the Strix Matrix and MSI Lightning vBIOSes and see if either of them does anything for us. There is so much nonsense going on with firmware that it may not make any difference. The thing that is limiting all of them is having such a wimpy little wuss-boy max of 1.093V. That's just stupid.

    I agree with you. The Matrix, Lightning and K|NGP|N cards will be out soon.

    It is highly unlikely that we will be able to use a K|INGP|N vBIOS on anything else. That has never been possible in the past as far as I know. But, that GPU model is always in a class of its own and, if history holds true, all of the rest should be cross-flashable.

    It will be interesting to find out if the Lightning really is as good as the marketing hype makes it out to be. There was a ton of hype around the Duke and Trio, and neither one of those are as good as the XC2 or FTW3. With all of the firmware being as crippling as it is, the extra power phases on some of these cards seems like a waste of resources and a gimmick that exists primarily to have an excuse to charge extra for something that is not needed.

    This was kind of weird, but was easy to fix (after I found the example).

    Awesome, and thanks! Let's see how it compares to these that I just ran. The specs seem similar to the Aorus Extreme vBIOS, but (hopefully) the behavior will improve a little more. (The runs below are with the Aorus Extreme vBIOS.)
