We are now investigating here in FInland at strange bios issue what i found about 2h ago.
Those my original SuprimX results, on my TimeSpy average Mhz was 2110Mhz
And my PortRoyal bench my average Mhz was 2123Mhz.
But whats a strange and issue now, i flashed my MSI card to Asus StrixOC 450W bios...
And i can increase my TimeSpy and PortRoyal average Mhz, AVG!!! MHZ about +50Mhz, but my 3dMark points are lower!!!
My PortRoyal avg. Mhz on now StrixOC 450W bios are even 2170Mhz, but my PR scores are still lower than my SuprimX bios @ avg. 2123Mhz
My VRAM speed was throttling on my SuprimX scores, but not on my ASUS bios results (Max.mem.clock +1375, avg. also +1375).
I think, and we are investigating this issue here on Finland, i get +50Mhz more GPU but my scores are still lower than my original MSI SuprimX (430W) bios...
At 1st sight, many of ours 3080 owners think that its maybe somekind ASUS cheat-Mhz issue, higher clocks without more power!!!
That could be explanation why most of youtube reviewers can drive Strix cards so high clocks. Usually SuprimX, FTW3, GB xTreme or Galax & Top-Tier cards can get only 2075-2100Mhz, and always StrixOC cards can get at same situation ~2135-2150Mhz! At least they reviewers run on theirs videos TombRaider... you know... On Asus cards theirs clocks are about +50Mhz higher than another brands 3080.
I scored 13 033 in Port Royal
< avg.2123Mhz SuprimX 430W bios, 13033 scores (Vram +1366Mhz, slight throttling)
I scored 13 024 in Port Royal
< avg.2170Mhz ASUS 450W bios, 13024 scores (Vram +1375Mhz, NO throttling)
