    Word! RTX clock block 3.0 from the half-cocked skoks with a crock full of crap.

    Awesome to have your validation that power limit is a silly distraction. I've been saying that since I first got the RTX 2080 Ti shunt mod done and most people are not listening. Maybe they'll listen with both of us saying the same thing. The PerfCap reason showing power limit is triggered by the lack of voltage that is suppressing core clocks (which uses less power) not the actual power limit, so that is misleading. I've got a higher power limit than I can even begin to use due to the castrated voltage cap... crap... cap crap.

    Stupid IMO to handicap the enthusiast community as a whole. They better pull their head out of their collective arses, if they want future business from the aforementioned community!

    @Mr. Fox , I sent HWBOT a message on Twitter to see if they will restore my account. I gave them my username and password and email address.

    Should be a pretty narrow point spread, since they are all locked to the same max core clocks. The only real variance will boil down to thermal management and CPU tuning. But, everyone gets a trophy for participating. We can likely expect some drama as they discover that bragging rights about having a higher "power limit" are basically meaningless.

    This is why in glad I got out of laptops when they didn't allow upgrading my p770zm from Maxwell to Pascal. Too much cost for forced gimping when you can build a beast desktop for the same or less.

    Me, too. I haven't regretted it... at all. Laptops are so "not worth it" anymore. And, they just keep giving us more and more, and more, reasons to say that they're not worth it. Nonsense piled on top of more nonsense.

    Kind of why I still have these in a box un opened yet. (For the shunt mod)

    They did this to most of us, not all of us. More like 99 percent would be closer to the truth.

    Depends on the true max draw. Stock clocks can max out 200W.

    @Mr. Fox or @Rage Set I created a new username for HWBOT. Can you please PM the password for PremaMod? Thanks
