ASUS STRIX RTX 2080 Ti White Edition – Is This The One Card To Rule Them All?!


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.

Default the ASUS RTX 2080 Ti White Edition GPU boosts up to 1965 – 1980 stock during loading. The cap reason is not thermals as the GPU stays ion the low 60 range during loading and runs headlong into power limits long before it needs its cooling capabilities. Cranking the power limit and turning up the wick on the GPU netted us a +120 on the GPU, which showed a steady-state clock in the 2085MHz range. This is a roughly 6% increase in GPU clock speed.

Memory on the ASUS, we see 14,798MHz as read during testing. Turning things up, and we get the card up to +950 or 16,698MHz effective clock speed from the Samsung GDDR6. This overclock is a roughly 12% increase over the out of the box clock and the maximum we could get out of the card due to power limit restrictions.

With the overclocks dialed in, we see that the graphics score jumped by 7%, which is a solid gain for the lower loading standard time spy test and even widens the gap between every other card on our charts. Now let’s see how the ASUS 2080 Ti fared in Time Spy Extreme when overclocked.


Moving to Time spy extreme, we see the overclock deliver another 7% gain, which puts the ASUS 2080 Ti well above the TITAN RTX, to which it had fallen by a small margin previously.

Undervolting the RTX 3080 and the RTX3090

What if you could find a way to lower both the temperature and the power consumption of your new GPU while still getting almost the same performance? Well, there is. It is called undervolting. Since the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 came out there has been a lot of talk about undervolting them to get better thermals while still getting kick-ass performance and of course I decided I wanted to try it out myself. In the following pages you can both read on how to do it yourself but also get an idea how it will affect both the performance but also the thermals (and noise level).
