Ryzen 7 3800xt on MSI Meg Ace x570. RTX 2080 Ti K|NGP|N for when I'm feeling insecure and small.
16800 graphics in TS is solid on air, but what frequency is core clock sitting at on load? I'm clueless so I don't know if it's intentional or just something that works, but early when I was testing my 2080, I set the core boost to something like +250 or +300, and it boosted to 2145mhz at peak. Worked great. But if I dropped to +125, it would then also peak at the same frequency with (as I recall) the same behavior. It's been a while now and I don't recall being able to replicate it on another BIOS later, so it might have just been a temporary thing or BIOS-specific bug. And maybe I just haven't seen enough solid OC results out of non-A 2080ti, which might make up a bit of that offset (since A chips would come with some stock OC, I assume). Do you remember how much power the card was pulling in that test? Closest result I see in my chart to 16800 is 16793 graphics in TimeSpy, and it looks like that was on reg BIOS at +50/1200 (2115mhz peak core clock)I had no intentions on water cooling my newest 2080Ti but damn is it a good overclocker. First let me say, I got lucky with samsung memory. Today was 40 degrees and decided to try the pc in my garage bench (with the garage door open to see how far I could push it. Pretty freaking far, this card is unmodified and is running a non-a chip. Got a graphics score of 16800 in timespy. That is with an offset of 475 on the core and 1000 on the mem.
Like I mentioned this was suppose to be a place holder for either a 6900XT or 3090 (or 3080Ti if released) but if it can hold those same clocks watercooled I might go that route.
