diedo Hello, what is the different between the X trio and non X trio MSI 2080 Super, is it really just one is factory overclocked and the other is just stock speeds with MSI cooling ? Can I flash the X TRIO BIOS on the non X and gain the extra little boost?

ekkolp Hi people.
I have a RTX 2080 Gaming OC (Gigabyte) watercooled.

I wonder if I flash other BIOS I can get more performance, since I have the temp headroom. I tried yesterdey with Sea Hawk X Hybrid BIOS because in the BIOS DB it says it has a higher TPD limit (https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/...80-8192-180907 vs https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/...80-8192-180905) but in afterburner I could only set to 105% the max target tdp while with stock bios i can raise it up to 125%.

Did I choose the wrong bios? What one would you flash? Or I'm just losing time xD.

TK421 does 2080 super have the -A and non-A variants?


do their memory also come with micron and samsung lottery?

The card is extremely cool. If you don't overclock it (just leave it at stock), it never goes over 50-60 C. If you do overclock it, it never goes over 60-70 C. Either way, the fans are super silent even on Performance Mode, so you don't need to enable Silent Mode.

The best I could push the card in MSI Afterburner was +70 MHz on the Core and +1150 MHz on the Memory, full stability (no crashes or glitches) after hours of gameplay and mixed computer use. Of course, this is YMMV. If I push Core to +80 MHz, *some* games will fail to load successfully, or might need a few tries to do so. With Core at +90 MHz, some games will just plain refuse to load. If I push Memory to +1300 MHz, *some* games may close (crash) without any errors stated after a few minutes of gameplay. With Memory at +1200 MHz, crashes are much rarer, but can still happen after prolonged sessions.

In terms of pure Heaven Unigine benchmarking, I was able to test the card at +100 MHz on Core and +1300 MHz on the Memory without any issues. Of course, this is not real-world usage. But that's just to give you an idea for how much potential headroom there might be if silicon lottery favours you. If I pushed Memory to +1500 MHz, the graphics driver would instantly crash and restart. With this card (and probably most others), don't hesitate to immediately push it to +50 MHz on the Core and +1000 MHz Memory right off the bat. Unless you're *really* unlucky, you should be stable on these clocks. I didn't notice any decrease in performance as the Memory clock pushed past this point.

Keep in mind: With the RTX 2080 SUPER, a difference of a few dozen on the Core or a few hundred on the Memory *really* doesn't matter. You're only going to see single digit differences in FPS at most, which really doesn't mean anything. You'll do better toning down the graphics in games. If you emphasize longevity, don't hesitate to stay below your card's achievable max.

I'm not a hardware expert or anything, but if anyone has questions about this card, feel free to ask. I spent quite a lot of time comparing cards in the RTX 2080 SUPER line before buying, and ultimately took the dive on this slightly pricier card for its silent and cool fans. And I don't regret the purchase one bit.
Hey I just bought this exact same card 2 days ago from Canada Computers. Tbh I wanted the EVGA 2080 Super Ultra version instead as ive almost always bought EVGA. Loved their designs and cooling performance and how quiet they are. But they are sold out everywhere so I took a chance on this one for same price. After a lot for research I jumped on it. And my experience basically is same as yours. It's stupid cool and quiet even on OC bios mode. I've so far only put 75mhz on the core and 1000 on the memory and it doesn't go above 68C for me. What I will say is it hits 129% power target quite frequently when I'm gaming (hardware coded power target for this card?) And then it scaled clocks down. And that's not even at anywhere near 100% usage. Playing control at 4K max settings with a 30FPS cap at 60-70% GPU usage, power target still hit 129% some scenes. So effectively drops my core clock to 2020mhz down from 2075mhz. So the extra core clock I added doesn't seem to really matter.

I don't recall my GTX 1080 having this much of an issue with reaching max power limit so easily. Could also be the game itself is demanding as all hell. And turning RTX ON... Jesus... Forget about fps haha.

Benchmark tests for stability aren't the same as real-world tests; I could probably set higher clocks for both the Core and Memory and pass benchmark tests just fine. There's a reason why I listed both values in case anybody was curious. I have full stability at +70 and +1150 right now, but if I set higher values on either one, I will experience crashing in some games.

For example, even if I can do +1200 MHz on the Memory clock, I'd rather not have it potentially crash after 1-2 hours of gameplay. It's minor, sure, but I want stability and don't really care about the average ~2 FPS difference. In Heaven Unigine, every +100 MHz boost for the Memory clock seemed to push FPS higher by like, 2~3 FPS at best. It's significant with the initial jump of +1000 MHz, but not worth trading stability for +50 MHz in my case.

It is this one: https://www.newegg.ca/asus-geforce-r...82E16814126336

So yeah, A8G. The O8G isn't available for sale in Newegg Canada, so I couldn't get it. But honestly, I don't think it matters. From my research, all of the top-end 2080 SUPER cards have very similar frames after overclocking. Maybe a difference of 3~5 FPS at best between cards. Buy based on heat and noise.

As for the power limit, I have it set to 125% in MSI Afterburner. Frankly, I don't even think the 2080 SUPER manages to actually push that much though. You start experiencing instability long before any power issues arise. From what I've seen among various aftermarket cards, reviewers have really only managed to push the 2080 SUPER to roughly the +50 to 100 range for Core, and the +1000 to +1200 range for Memory. It's probably a limitation with the card itself.

Again, if I haven't made it clear enough, the difference in FPS is negligible after you've overclocked it to those ranges. You won't see meaningful gains (if you even see them) by squeezing out another +10 or +100 on the Core or Memory clocks. Concentrate on stability.

Gotta do what you gotta do. It's hard out here for a pimp. New build is in the works so really no reason to put much effort into this one. Going back to a full tower case so I have room for more weeb stickers
