Yes, for me that is definitely the case for my 2080 Ti XC2 Ultra GPU. I have shunt modded my 2080 Ti, so the Galax firmware's higher power limit is irrelevant. The problem I had with the Galax HOF firmware (before and after the shunt mod) is that it sucks at holding the voltage at the 1.093V max and I still saw tons of PerfCap reasons in GPU-Z and it was not holding clocks under load. With the EVGA XC2, FTW3 and Aorus Extreme firmware, I have no PerfCaps showing and all three allow me to lock the voltage at 1.093V permanently. I can get one bin higher on the core overclock with the Aorus Extreme vBIOS for some reason, and the higher base clocks are nice when I am gaming with default core and memory clock speeds.

Using the Aorus Extreme firmware it is also more convenient to push the memory overclock higher with MSI Afterburner because the +1000 offset is starting with a higher default memory clock. If I use EVGA Precison X1 I can clock the memory just as high, but locking the voltage is not as effective as it is with MSI Afterburner.

What we really need is a vBIOS for 2080 Ti that was like the Strix XOC vBIOS for 1080 Ti with a 1.200V limit. This 1.093V limit on 2080 Ti really blows.
