Important Starting in the second half of 2019, many cards are now shipping with a newer XUSB FW Version ID, preventing a lot of BIOSes in the TechPowerUp BIOS Collection from being flashed to the card through NVFlash, so be aware when purchasing a new card, you might not be able to flash a higher power limit BIOS on it. Example: MSI Gaming X Trio purchased in Q3 2018 shipped with the 0x70060003 firmware (Build Date: 2018-08-29), the same MSI card purchased a year later in Q3 2019 shipped with the firmware 0x70100003 (Build Date: 2018-12-28), this newer card also had a different EEPROM (WBond instead of ISSI). The BIOS and firmware can however be overwritten by force, using an external programming/test clip, bypassing NVFlash entirely.

QUESTIONS | FAQ

Last Updated: June, 2019

Question: What does Non-A mean?
Answer: There are two GPU variants: TU102-300 (1E04) and TU102-300A (1E07). Factory overclocking is prohibited on the former, it has a boost of 1545 MHz and a maximum power limit of 280-310W. The latter chip has varying factory overclocks and power limits up to 520 W, flashing a 300A based BIOS onto a 300 GPU and vice versa is not possible. Manual overclocking is possible on both.

Question: How do I know if I have a 300 or 300A card?
Answer: Check the list above, but it may be incorrect as the early batches of the ASUS Turbo card had the A chip, recent reports indicate later batches are the correct 300 chip since the card was always advertised as not having a factory overclock. To be certain, check the Device ID in the main window of GPU-Z, if it shows 1E04 it is the 300 chip, if it shows 1E07 it is the "binned" 300A chip.

Question: How do I know what power limit my card has?
Answer: In GPU-Z, click the Advanced tab, then General and finally choose NVIDIA BIOS, under the Power Limit section you will see Default and Maximum.

Question: What does the power limit actually do?
Answer: Several years ago we had full voltage control, then NVIDIA introduced a power and temperature limit. Once a 300 card reaches its maximum 280-310W power usage it will restrict the voltage: for instance, my 280W card could not exceed 0.913v running a game in 5K resolution, this meant it could not reach a higher than 1860MHz core clock although the GPU has a hard limit of 1.093V, therefore it's far from its true potential.

Question:How big is the performance gap between the two?
Answer: Simply put, a higher power limit allows for a higher voltage, which in turn results in a higher overclock. While my 280W card could only reach 1860MHz at 0.913V, my other 330W card achieved 1980MHz at 1.018V, both at 75c running the same game in 5K resolution.
+18% power limit → +11.5% voltage → +6.5% core clock.
In further testing, trying to score as high as possible in 'UNIGINE Superposition 1080p Extreme' at watercooled temperatures, the 280W card (0.913v at 43c) got a score of 9188 (69 FPS), while the A card flashed to 380W (1.068V at 51c) got 10306 (77 FPS).
+36% power limit → +17% voltage → +12% performance.
At the time of writing this, the least expensive A GPU has a mere 4.4% price premium, using air cooling with a 330W power limit one can get up to 6.5% better performance, thus justifying the slight price bump. If you plan on running the card on water or with air cooling at the highest fan speed, the performance increase scales up to 12%.

Question: Is it safe to run the card at 380W?
Answer: Yes, as shown above, with the higher power limit the voltage could not exceed 1.068V, the hardware limit is still 1.093V. In order to reach that voltage and unlock the full overclock potential it would require to surpass 400W. There is also a common misconception that the 8-pin connectors are capped at 150W each, in actuality the port does not define the power cap and is capable of more than 300W, making it over 600W for every 2x8-Pin card.

Question: Is it safe to run the reference PCB at 1.093V?
Answer: Yes, as pointed out by Buildzoid during his analysis of the reference PCB: "If you're on water cooling or air cooling you have nothing to worry about, there is not much room for board partners to make a better PCB, for daily usage you can just buy a reference card and knock yourself out, really solid Vcore VRM, massive overkill on the Memory VRM, this is a really, really, really solid card". To put things into perspective, the reference board can handle above 600W, at which point the GPU will have already hit the 1.093V limit a long time ago so no damage can be done.

Question: What about shunt mod?
Answer: Shunt modding your card will increase the power limit, bypassing the software limit. This effectively means a guaranteed voltage of 1.093V, but is a high risk procedure, possibly voiding your warranty. I have no experience in removing a shunt mod so I cannot say how difficult it is. In short: not recommended unless you know exactly what you're doing.

Question: Do the custom PCB cards such as the ROG Strix and FTW3 overclock better than the reference PCB cards?
Answer: For daily use, the answer is no, the power limit is still the main limiting factor with overclocking. Long before you would've gained higher overclocking from the increased amount of power phases, the 1.093V limit would have already been reached.

Question: What about the temperature limit?
Answer: This is where the custom PCB cards actually shine, not due to the extra power phases, rather the air cooling capacity. For instance, the massive MSI Gaming X Trio, being the second largest card with its 327mm length, 2.7 slot form factor and 3 fans, managed to keep a temperature of only 51°C (124°F) just above 1900MHz, locked to 0.900V with the fans set to 100%.
Meanwhile, the Palit Dual, which is a 292mm 2.5 slot dual-fan card, barely managed to keep it at 60°C (140°F), even after replacing the TIM with TG Kryonaut.
Thus we can conclude that a temperature delta of 9°C (48°F), which is a step higher on the clock curve, meaning 15MHz faster (not even 1%), does not matter for daily use, yet it's the polar opposite for attempting a high benchmark score.
The real utility I found for these massive coolers, is allowing for near silent gaming, the MSI Gaming X Trio managed to stay at 75c, running 1980MHz (1.043V) on the core while gaming at 5K resolution, with the fan speed at a mere 45% (1530/1220 RPM).
It made less noise than my 4x 120mm 850RPM radiator fans cooling the CPU, thus we're getting watercooling noise levels from an air cooled card, running at a higher clock than the fastest factory overclocked card! If that is not impressive, then I don't know what is.

Question: My card reaches 2200MHz at just 1.000V, am I lucky?
Answer: No, since when the GPU is not fully utilized, it can freely go up to 1.093V, as it is not close to the power limit. To really find out your max clock, for your cooling (temperature), you need to run the most demanding benchmarks or games in up to 8K resolution which will result in low FPS and high VRAM usage.
I have seen many people running Time Spy, complain about reaching the power limit in Graphics Test 2 specifically, which is due to Time Spy being a 1440p benchmark that does not max out the GPU throughout the tests.
To really put your card to its knees, run Time Spy Extreme (4K), which is far more demanding on the hardware, but is sadly locked away behind a paywall. My recommendation is to instead run UNIGINE Superposition 8K Optimized preset.

Question: How much performance will I gain by water cooling my card?
Answer: A lower temperature allows the GPU to increase the core clock in steps of 15MHz, roughly at about every 10°C (50°F), so keeping your card at 40°C (104°F) instead of 75°C (167°F) is likely about 4 steps, therefore 60MHz higher, which translates to 3% higher performance. This is of course only possible if you do not hit the power limit first!

Question: Are the more expensive cards binned (hand-picked)?
Answer: There is no evidence supporting that. For example, the Galax OC Reference PCB 380W card could very well overclock higher than a EVGA FTW3 Custom PCB 373W card, it's mere chance. This is why there is no point in choosing an FTW3 over the cheapest A GPU if you are going to water cool it, they will have near identical performance if you use the Galax 380W BIOS on both.

Question: So which card should I buy?
Answer: The first thing to look at is the power limit, which rules out any Non-A GPUs as they are all locked to 280W and cannot be modified. Another thing to look for is the cooling, the obvious answer would be a hybrid variant, featuring a closed liquid cooler, unfortunately they tend to be far more expensive.
When looking for a GPU to cool with a water block it does not really matter what you get, as long as it is a reference PCB variant, there is no need for a custom one.
Finally, we have the air cooled GPUs, the bigger the better generally, triple-fan is recommended over dual-fan, but price is also an issue here, the large custom PCB cards tend to cost a lot more.
I would say that a good compromise would be the 2 to 2.5 slot triple-fan reference PCB variants, such as: Gainward Phoenix GS, Gigabyte Windforce OC, Inno3D X3 OC, MSI Duke OC, PNY XLR8 OC, Zotac Triple Fan and Zotac AMP.
The GPU with the highest power limit out of these is the Gigabyte Windforce OC, at 366W, but all of them can safely be flashed with the Galax 380W BIOS.

At this point in the game why not just buy the cheapest A-chip 2080 Ti you can find?

The price difference is only $100 CAD tops between the low bin A chips. For an extra hundo I believe the raised PL, beefy cooler and EVGA brand is worth it for the Boxing Day sale.

Hi All,

Just picked up a XC Hybrid, how do I know if I have newer XUSB firmware which is incompatible with older bios's ?

If I flash older bios will it just fail with no further damage or will it brick the card ?

Yes, you'll only get an error if you try to flash. It won't harm the card.

Thanks :)

Anybody know which bios I should try ?
Try the Galax 380W bios from the first page, its a good solid bios that works with air cooling, if you put it under water there is other bioses to try that might work better.
Dont forget to save your original bios if you ever need to flash it back or send the card in on RMA.

https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/204557/KFA2.RTX2080Ti.11264.180910.rom


nvflash --save 2080tiorg.rom
nvflash --protectoff
nvflash -6 KFA2.RTX2080Ti.11264.180910.rom (or when you download it u can save it as a shorter name, for exemple kfa2.rom)

Then its:

nvflash -6 KFA2.rom

Hello everyone, everything good? I have a rtx 2080 ti asus strix oc, which bios can I have better benchmark performance? I tried the msi trio x but it doesn't flash. The asus strix xoc is not going well, any tips bios?

appreciate
Hi there

Personally I would try Matrix BIOS if you on air or water, I use on my Asus RTX 2080Ti Strix Matrix BIOS and as with everything depends on temperatures, try keep temperatures under 70's or I would rathet say in low 60's to have best clocks

I can do with Matrix BIOS 2160-2175MHz and +800MHz on VRAM

XOC BIOS does work but with that BIOS you really need to be under water there to get best performance, with XOC BIOS my best OC is close 2200MHz(2190MHz)but that's in very low ambient in 13°C and water temperature I have seen just 15°C under load at such ambient

Hope this helps

Thanks, Jura

So just tried the gigabyte 360w 2019 bios (https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/216078/216078) on my 2019 333w EVGA XC Hybrid and after flashing I am unable to control the fans on the SC Hybrid :( Did a fresh install of win10 just to make sure and fans spins very slow on the VRM and the GPU RAD even when maxing out the fan curve in X1 or Afterburner. So have come back to origingal bios.

Original bios is still pretty good though : https://www.3dmark.com/spy/9760917 - 7719 gpu cscore in Timespy Extreme

I bought a MSI 2080 Ti Gaming X Tro last week. Just flashed the Galaxy Bios here https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/215860/galax-rtx2080ti-11264-190726 which worked great. Still have fan control and so far no problems. It is allowing me to get a sable 2100mhz core (+135) and 8100mhz mem (+1100) with no drops running 3dmark. Power was hitting 370w to 380w. Temps stayed around 64c with 70% fan speed. Only Con is I lost RGB control but the RGB's are lite up just running the rainbow colors. Does really matter much to me since I plan on putting a waterblock on it soon.

Hey dudes, need some input from 2080TI overclockers. I bought what I presumed would be the most El Cheapo 2080TI you can buy, one of these (I've had good luck with Zotac over the years):



Then I put it under water, with a Heatkiller IV, using Arctic Cooling MX-4 paste:



Now I've been water cooling and overclocking for decades, but I'm seeing weird stuff here. GOOD weird!! The first weird thing is the temps. This thing TOPS OUT at 35C! Now if that GPU were stock boosting at 1750mhz, I'd still be impressed. But that's after firing up MSI Afterburner, setting +250 core OC, +700 memory OC (with 120% power limit), and running Time Spy Extreme / Firestrike Ultra stress tests REPEATEDLY. I've been testing for hours. The core is reportedly hitting 2145mhz, memory is hitting 8000mhz, and 35C is the reported max temp (!!!). Those core clocks seem suspiciously good, but this is my first 2080 series card, so no experience with these things. Did I just win the silicon lottery on this GPU?

I would not consider anything under 2200 core/8000 memory 100% stable to be "golden". It's all relative though, others may think differently.

The temperature you're reporting is nice, but it's meaningless without the proper context, such as ambient temperature, more more relevantly for water cooling, the delta between fluid temperature and GPU temperature. Basically there should be nothing out of the ordinary there compared to other 2080 Tis using the same block.

As for the reported clock speeds, unless it's passing something like the TimeSpy Extreme stress test at the reported clocks and doing so without throttling, the silicon cannot be fully evaluated. With that said, the voltage also matters. If you're hitting 2145MHz stable at 1.093V (the cap on vcore), I would not at all consider that winning the silicon lottery. That would be above average though. I've seen some very poor silicon, such as FTW3s that can barely manage over 2000MHz. As for buying a cheaper variant, it really doesn't matter. Unless you're buying a Kingpin or Matrix, I don't think there's much binning going on.

I would not consider anything under 2200 core/8000 memory 100% stable to be "golden". It's all relative though, others may think differently.
"Golden" is indeed subjective, since we don't know the distribution of silicon quality on these cards and the cutoff for "golden" would be in itself subjective. With that said, I would also not consider anything under 2200MHz at 1.093V to be golden.

The temps must be wrong. The rig is in a cold basement (plus Canadian winter), ambient 18C-20C, in an overkill loop (2 88ml 360 Monstas, one 360 X-flow, and a 240, all with good fans). But I've done overkill rad space for years and haven't seen this. Best temps I've seen under full load in similar conditions were my 1080TIs topping out at 46C, so I'm assuming this GPU temp sensor is just plain goofy. It got into the liquor-filled egg nog or something.

Hi there

These temperatures are great and I would expect such temperatures with such loop

Have look on my loop with 4*GPUs in one loop, 4*360mm radiators plus MO-ra3 360mm my Asus RTX 2080Ti Strix will do 2145-2160MHz with temperatures topping out at 38-42°C in normal ambient temperature in mid 20's, in lower ambient temperature in normal stress tests I see 36-38°C with 2145MHz OC, my GTX1080Ti will do 2113MHz at 1.07v and temperatures are in mid 30's(33-36°C) in gaming or rendering

I just done quick Superposition test with ambient in 20°C and temperatures never passed 36°C on RTX 2080Ti Strix

My water delta T during the test have been in 1-1.5°C

What waterblock did you use with GTX1080Ti and what GTX1080Ti did you have, I know friend MSI GTX1080Ti Gaming X 11G have been one of the hottest GPU which I tested, I tried few waterblocks on that card but best temperatures I have seen have been in mid 40's to low 50's that's with 2*360mm radiators plus 240mm radiator

Heatkiller with Aquacomputer Kryographics RTX 2080Ti WB are two best waterblocks on market for RTX 2080Ti

I don't think yours GPU temperature sensor is bad or wrong reports,these temperatures I would expect too

Hope this helps

Thanks, Jura

Thanks Jura, that's good to know, thanks for the info! I have a pair of Zotac 1080TIs with Heatkiller IV blocks in a Threadripper system, they top out at around 46C at 2100 core. Heatkillers are my go-to, but it appears the 2080TI runs a bit cooler than the 1080TI, or Watercool made some serious improvements in blocks between the 1080s and 2080s. Good to know these readings are accurate, and awesome!

If your ambients are 18-20C, then 35C sounds about right for a reference BIOS near the power limit. Igor's Lab tested the Heatkiller block by fixing the fluid temp to 20C with a chiller and with a full load on the 380W BIOS and was hitting 35C on average, so a 15C delta between the fluid and GPU temps. Obviously without a chiller, it would take some time for that delta to reach a steady state.

The temperature reported should be accurate. You should expect less than a 15C delta between fluid temp and GPU temp if the card isn't hitting 380W.

Is there any way to bypass newer cards XUSB FW error when flashing the BIOS or newer cards are essentially BIOS locked?

You need a newer bios that works with the newer FW. Galaxy has a new 380w that you can try. I have a MSI 2080 Ti with the new FW and the latest Galaxy 380W bios works for me but the older ones give me an error.
