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.

I'm guessing faulty card which can happen. Contact EVGA. They are wizards when it comes to customer support and RMA.

I can't remember where it is but on my 1080ti PC I was only getting like 1070/80 performance even though it was at 100% load and I reinstalled everything from driver to windows and couldn't find the issue then I stumbled across a boot section in windows that let's you set the CPU cores from 1 to 8 in my and as soon as i set it to 8 all my performance came back.
Its the part of windows where you can select what processes start on win start up and you can filter out Microsoft processes!
Pretty vague but might help as i tried everything and was getting ready to smash something. My PC worked flawlessly for 2 yrs in this configuration then just last month started with less performance.

It's in msconfig in the boot tab. Gonna try it out. Not sure this will work though.

Well, 1080 Ti Strix is probably in 19XX MHz range while you are saying your 2080 Ti is 17XX. That is 10% loss in performance right there. Add the fact that 2080 Ti is only 20-25% faster and really you end up with your performance. You also have to run them and benchmark them at the same time. Run synthetic benchmarks and see how fast that 2080 Ti. Games will be hard to test since areas can effect fps greatly.

I would RMA... it's not acceptable!

Something is confusing me. I enabled monitoring while running some benches. I added +220MHz to the core and +300MHz to the memory to what I believe are reference clocks. While running Shadow of the Tomb Raider, for some reason at times, my clock speed caps out at 1680MHz or so and it gives me an average of 55fps. At other times, it caps out at 2050MHz or even 2080MHz which is way higher than the overclock I applied(which should let it boost to 1870MHz or so). With that said, my performance increases by a significant amount. I go from 55fps average to 63fps average. Then in benchmarks I go from 32K in Fire Strike graphics score to 36K. A slight boost shouldn't net such a huge improvement in performance.

It doesn't thermal throttle either. Max temps are 70C.

Sounds like power limits/throttling??

You're just nitpicking words now. I was talking about in terms of performance, those are the only measurements that matter. Not IPC or clock speed.
