Nvidia Releases The Beast – Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER Review


Overclocking the GTX 2000 Series cards are very similar to 10 series but there have been some improvements in how the boost works in version 4 over version 3 which was on Pascal. We discussed this earlier in the features section.

While you would think the bump to 250W for he RTX 2080 SUPER, would not leave much room for pushing the clocks, it still had some room to move. The GPU we observed a default steady-state boost frequency of 1935MHz. We were able to push +90 to the core with the raised power limit to achieve a steady-state of 2010 – 2025MHz under constant gaming style loading.

The memory default for the RTX 2080 SUPER is the fastest VRAM to be used on a GPU to date with a clock rate of 15.5Gbps. We were able to push the memory to +800 which raised our effective clock to 17.1Gbps.

With the overclocks all set, we now ran some comparison runs of 3DMark Time Spy. As you can see, the graphics score for Time spy jumped by almost 6% compared to stock.

Moving to Time spy extreme we see the overclock deliver an almost 7 percent increase in graphics performance. Of course, I would like to see a lot more, but not too bad with no need for voltage adjustments or even raising the temperature limit.

The Steam Deck – Valve delivers an excellent PC handheld

Valve is an interesting company that seems to try to be a lot of things at the same time. Games company, software hub/store and hardware company. Valve is all of these. When it comes to hardware the company has had mixed success. I think many of us remember the Steam Machines. These compact computers running SteamOS, a Linux based OS, were supposed to make Windows PC’s obsolete for gaming. They didn’t succeed. Valve also released a specific controller, the Steam Controller, which also did not exactly set the world on fire. In hindsight though both these products have paved the way for the product I am testing today, the Steam Deck, Valves attempt to compete with the Nintendo Switch in the handheld market.
