What's biggest manipulation of NVIDIA or AMD you can remember.
For me is overclocking RTX Founders Edition to avoid humiliation if NVIDIA show up with RTX2080 and RTX2080Ti with same clocks as they give to partners.
ASUS, MSI, GIGABYTE offer RTX2080 and RTX2080Ti with 100MHz lower clock then NVIDIA Founders Edition. Off course they had custom models. But reference RTX2080 and RTX2080Ti were 100MHz slower then FE.
That 100MHz was only way to NVIDIA beat GTX1080Ti Founders Edition with RTX2080 Founders Edition and to avoid 19% improvement from GTX1080Ti FE to RTX2080 FE and half of people didn't even figure out what they done. For them is RTX 2080 naturally faster then GTX1080Ti and measured with FE models except FE and faster were slower then GTX1080Ti FE.
Situation was like this... few weeks before launch date somewhere in NVIDIA Company...
OK what we have? We have obviously, that mean, obviously in every situation slower RTX2080 then GTX1080Ti, no any way to manipulate with scores, fps, drivers...it's 5-10% slower card depend of benchmark test and game... and somewhere around 20% faster RTX2080Ti.
What could we done?
Only choice is overclocking reference models... But good percent of cards will not work just like that 100MHz faster?
No, we will not OC all of them, vendors will get original reference clock, slower then GTX1080Ti FE, but we will choose significant number of nice chips and overclocked them 100MHz and sell them for 100$ more, vendors will not get such card, we need off course to replace cooler, turbine from GTX780Ti FE, GTX980 FE, GTX1080 FE can't serve any more, we need dual cooler. We will advertise FE clocks and compare them with previous generation. But partners will get slower clock.
Reviews need to help and test FE 100MHz higher boost then cheapest reference models partners get but people used that FE is reference cards and they will naturally think if Turing FE is faster then Pascal FE that mean every Turing is faster.
