Rtx 2080 dual or strix

Hi I’m looking at a new card and wondering what people’s thoughts are on the ASUS Dual vs the strix ? Is the strix worth the extra $200 and why ?
Thanks

There are 3 versions of both Dual and Strix. The base versions both have non A chips. Both cards Have a 'Advanced' and 'OC' skews, both of these skews have the 'A' chip. The Strix Offers just 37W extra power limit. Both are relatively low limits and that's a lot of extra cash per Watt. When overclocking, your'e likely to reach power limitations long before temp limits. The only other thing I'd consider is noise. The Strix's 3 fans and beefier heatsink will be quieter at the same temp when compared to the dual but not by a lot. Given the options of the these two cards, I'd go for the Dual OC but given the choice of the market, I'd choose neither. Please don't ask what I'd get as I still deciding.. Posted a question on the official owners thread.. It's a case of finding the cheapest board capable of competently handling the best Bios as I intend flash and water cool.

The dual is the oc and the strix is the gaming oc.
They are $1160 dual and 1369 strix

The strix is obviously better in terms of cooling. However, in terms of performance its all the same if its A chip vs A chip. I don't believe its worth the premium outside of that. It's just silicon lottery. I would just get the cheapest A chip variant you can find.

Forgot to mention that I think the link you provided was for the base, non 'A' chip Strix. It's why I linked both Bios's above. Look for the O in the sku's

Base version Strix is:ROG-STRIX-RTX2080-8G-GAMING (non A) $1379
Strix Gaming OC is: ROG-STRIX RTX2080-O8G-GAMING (A) $1449
Advanced is: ROG-STRIX RTX2080-A8G-GAMING
