I decided to sell my 1080 Ti before it lost all value with the introduction of 3000 series and I wasn't sure if I was going to wait on the 3000 series using a crap video card in the interim and mostly game on my consoles. But the only spare video card I had didn't have HDMI 2.0 or Display port so that was unacceptable after using it a few weeks. Went ahead and got a 2080 Super FTW3 Hybrid, ray tracing seems pretty cool but wasn't a game changer so I kind of regret doing it lol. At least the fan control works better than my 1080 Ti that I converted to a hybrid - I was using my motherboard to control the fans of the radiator and it never worked all that well for ramping up so I always left it running pretty high. With the 2080 Super Hybrid, the fan curves work far better and I can get it pretty silent at idle. Switching the Bios profile to Overclock on the card didn't seem to change much, though, other than the VRM/memory fan running when the graphics card is idle - does it do anything other than change the fan profile? Also, the FTW3 didn't help at all with the increased Power load as my overclock isn't getting anywhere near 130%, my overclock seems pretty average (or below average) at best - 110 core (equivalent of 140 for a base/founder model) and 500 to memory. I haven't tried the VF Curve Tuner yet, not really sure what it does.
Hmm, is there a memory lottery? My memory overclock seems really low when some people can do +1000-1500. I'll retest it with a lower core overclock. Edit: Tested it a little and sure enough I can get +1000 or +1200 if I lower my core clock to only +100 which is about 2050 MHz instead of 2070-2085 range.
