    Suddenly that 2080Ti timespy leak of 12900 odd seems credible...

    The wccftech article mentions the 2080 was running at 1875mhz so assuming it too can hit 2Ghz it may be a bit faster then the results show. We will have to wait and see though

    I think he is overheating with excitement waiting for his new cards. Remember he claimed earlier in the thread that the 1080ti was only 20% faster than the 980ti? So his grasp of figures is a bit wonky at the moment. :p

    He will be fine after the cards launch and he has calmed down a bit. Give him a break, we all get giddy with new purchases and when pre-ordering the wait can drive you crazy!!

    Also remember people, at clock for clock Maxwell performed slightly better than Pascal too...

    Well, on Videocardz they have two results with the same drivers but different 2080 cards. The one with higher clock speeds has a lower score, only 9319. The lower clocked card had a score of 10659.

    It's still not worth while anyone reading too much into these leaks. Might be a lot faster on release.

    Until we have release drivers, credible info on clocks and possible offsets it's pretty fruitless on either side of the fence.

    The Fe card looks to be a nice design, not sure about that big black slab in the middle of the heatink though, might have looked better all silver with black lettering.

    Yer, not taking anything as evidence til official reviews are out but pretty much what I expected for a 2080 in fairness. Overclocking will be interesting and how each stacks against each and then DLSS and what that brings to performance.

    I really like the way they look, very industrial. Its a nice change from all the in your face gaming designed most AIBs go for.

    Oh wow, only just seen the price of the cards.. the Asus 2080 is now £799. Glad I grabbed it a fortnight ago now for £715!

    Gotta love price increases before the things are even launched. =/

    Well, you have been saying the 2080 will be on par with the 1080ti, just like I have. So I am sorry to tell you that puts you in the Naysayer camp too. You will have to eat humble pie if they turn out faster. :p

    Mention any pie and I will eat it (except cream pies - unless I am paid enough of course) :D

    Yer, I have been expecting the 2080 to be on par with a bit of give and take either way but do expect DLSS to shine with the 2080 over the 1080Ti.

    Ok they look like very good quality cards, starting to make me regret my 'nope not paying that much for one' stance now.:(

    I do like the look of them. Im very interested in what DLSS can do, could be a game changer.

    Yes, a vapor chamber is more efficient at moving heat from one area to another than heat pipes. BUT, you also have to get rid of the heat and that is where the air fins come into play. The FE has maybe 40% of the fin surface area than something like the FTW3, and the former has at least 50% more airflow.

    Random speculation is pointless. Based historically, keeping temps in check has been more about keeping the card from throttling the sustained boost clock/step than dealing with maximum overclock.
