Slow 2080 Ti
Greetings everyone, I just purchased a spanking brand new 2080 Ti along with an i9-9900K CPU and a new motherboard.
Took them for a test drive and noticed my 2080 Ti didn't seem to perform particularly better than my older 1080 Ti. Ran a couple of benchmarks and I was right. It beat my previous Strix 1080 Ti by 6-9%.
I then compared its performance to other benchmarks such as Eurogamer and mine tend to be much lower. For instance, Eurogamer's benchmark of AC: Odyssey averages 52fps, mine averages 43fps. Using the same settings. In Far Cry 5 I average 59fps. they average 76. I seem to be in the ballpark of a 1080 Ti rather than a 2080 Ti.
I moved the card from the bottom PCIe slot to the top one. Made sure it ran at 16x, checked the temps, uninstall all old drivers using DDU, did a clean install of Windows, updated my motherboard's BIOS and everything under the sun but nothing does it. It performs poorly both in games and in benchmarks. It's only marginally better than a 1080 ti when it should beat it by 20%+ and not by a meager 6-9%. I do not have another PC I can test it on at the moment. GPU usage is also at 99% in those runs. The more I test it the more I suspect a faulty card or a faulty motherboard. Checked the temps, it's not going above 65C, no thermal throttling and I can see the clocks going up to 1750MHz on boost. No idea why it's so slow however.
CPU: i9-9900K 5GHz
GPU: EVGA RTX GeForce 2080 Ti Black Edition
RAM: 16GB DDR4 3000MHz
Motherboard: ASUS ROG Maximus Hero XI
Storage: Samsung Evo 960 256GB m.2
Any help would be appreciated, thank you.
