What do you guys think about the reports of FE, and even some aftermarket cards, power throttling on even stock overclocks? I have an order in for the MSI Gaming X 1080 ti but posts like https://www.reddit.com/r/nvidia/comments/636j9f/deciding_factors_1080_ti_strix_vs_1080_ti_aorus/dfrwsvb/ and https://www.reddit.com/r/nvidia/comments/60xdij/the_most_important_1080ti_card_spec_nobody_is/ make me wonder if these cards were designed well and if should still cancel my order.

I'm hoping to do 2000 - 2050~ ish on the core but if the even the first batch of aftermarket cards (with higher limits) will throttle on stock speeds, what is the use? Does this mean only the Aorus / Zotac cards are probably going to be worth it? (because of even higher TDP limits).

Honestly these cards are more than enough for 1440p max settings ultra wide or 16:9 @ 60fps maxed out, so unless you're doing 4k or high refresh rates over 100fps then there's not much point to OC or SLi, imo. Any additional gains through those routes is bragging rights for the 90% of people buying these cards.

So ask yourself if you're apart of that 90% or if you're in the 10% who is after high refresh rates or 4k 60fps maxed out. If you're ok waiting I'd stick it out for the corsair hydro cards, or the MSI SeaHawx or anything with a hybrid cooler really. Those should be the best clocking cards with the least amount of throttling thumb.gif

agreed. Unless one intends to grab the 4k/144Hz/HDR monitors coming Q2 (any day now) or is running three ultrawide QHD monitors like the one guy here (10,400x1440 lol) than one of these, any brand, will do just fine for 99% of people. Even in 4k. In fact, I find 4k/60 is about the same as 1440/120, not 144, that is even harder to produce and harder on the cpu, too.

damn, son, ya'll get crushed. It's all relative, I guess. Congrats, bro. You'll be the envy of your block now.

Honestly I think it's testament to how well Boost 3.0 works. It's a 300/330W card that you're buying and it pushes itself to that limit basically without us doing much. In that regard I'd say the design is quite amazing. As overclockers it feels like a pain, because we see single digit % OCs. But. The card is still a monster.

At some point (hopefully soon) i do want to go 3440x1440 @ 100hz so i do feel the more you can get out of these cards (stable and 24/7) the better. I don't think 2000/2050 should be that much of a stretch but the power limits have to be able to handle it.

That being said i have also been looking at my first EK custom water cooling loop, so i would definitely want to keep my options open for that. The heat is not REALLY the issue even with fans it seems though, isn't is just the max TDP limits that are insufficient?

I'm kinda bummed about those monitors, no 21:9s coming with that specsheet anytime soon rolleyes.gif I need a display over 36" to feel comfortable. Ideally something 42-50". I watch lots of videos, edit and render and play games and my vision isn't 20/20 even with glasses.

If these were Gsync and HDR I'd buy that 48" in a heartbeat
