I might finally be tempted to upgrade my 980Ti's and jump right to 3080Ti (depending on the price). Red Dead Redemption 2 is now officially the only game that I cannot run at max settings (then again, almost nobody can lol) and SLI is a mess right now. I think 3080Ti might be a true single 4K/60 solution under all conditions even RDR2, but we'll see .
Just saying hello
Yes, still chugging along with a 970 here. Going to upgrade my entire system soon.
Quick question for you, has anything changed with using OC tools like evga preciscion or msi afterburner? I use a custom bios and it had been thoroughly tested. I was playing around today and noticed that gpu-z is showing that I'm hitting performance cap now which makes no sense. I haven't done anything with the bios so I was wondering if anything like the oc tools or drivers could have caused this change?
Nope, not that I have seen. You can make sure power% and voltage sliders are maxxed.
I'm ashamed to say it was actually a rookie mistake I had made. After seeing your reply about the sliders I knew I had been doing that the same way all this time. It suddenly dawned on me that I had been doing some cleaning and unplugged my dvi cable...only to plug it back in to second dvi output by mistake. Swapped it back over and no more issues.
I also wanted to add that I'm also going to be keeping an eye out for the 3080Ti. I had gone with 970 last time around and this next upgrade I'm planning on going with a higher end card depending on what the price/performance looks like.
Thanks again for all of your efforts with the bios modding and of course all of the trouble shooting you have helped a lot of us out with!
