To anyone still on serie 9 wondering about the OC on 20 series and the lack of Bios MOD, I would like to share some useful info.
- If your serie 20 card is reporting voltage limitations on perfcap, you can use manual voltage curve overclock to lock your card on the maximum allowed voltage (1093mv), which was one of the main points of bios mod on serie 9.
- If your perfcap is reporting power limitations, bios cross-flashing is a reality on 20 series. Most cards work just fine with bios from other vendors, even custom PCB vs reference PCB bios works. So if your card has a low power limit, just test a few high power bioses and you will most likely find some that works w/o issue.
- For extreme overclockers, who usually go on TI cards, there are some very good bios out there with even 1000W power limit to try out.
I know is not the same but just wanted to share this info, because (for me) while is not the same, those things kind of make bios modding really not necessary.
I wasn't planing to upgrade but had to, and I don't care about RT (right now) because is obviously a new thing and it will take a few generations to mature.
But the raw performance jump from a 980 TI that couldn't even make 1500 Mhz on core to a 2080 that can deliver 2145 Mhz is amazing.
