For anyone interested, I ended up getting this card from Amazon. Alas I did not get any of the offers with it (Battlefield 5 or Steam Voucher) and the prices have gone up so it seems. eBuyer no longer has the card either.First of all, the card has a protective film all over the main case. Not only that but the plastic wrapper goes all the way down to the water block. I have no idea how you are supposed to remove that without actually removing the case. I am a little worried that if it heats up that plastic might melt, come off or even catch fire.Second thing, it was a mission to fit it in the case, the water pipes are on paper 32cm, however I would say that you won't get more than 30cm at best to play with.I am still running a Windows 7 with a GTX 980 rig, personal preferences, trying to keep Windows 10 bloat-ware out of my system as long as I can. Laptop has it and I hate it, can hardly run anything more niche, but anyhow. Also CPU is running at 4.1Mhz. No idea why the benchmarks are not reading that.Due to Windows 7 you will run into this issue. This is due to the nvidia usb type-c port policy controller driver which is not supported/working in Windows 7, only Windows 10. Just disable them.Default Temp was idle at 28 degrees and 54 under full load. Slightly more when OCed as per Superposition Benchmark.My benchmark scores have doubled if not tripled. I am also running it OCed. Please bear in mind that I have not uploaded the GTX 980 and RTX 2080 Default figures except for the Superposition Benchmark. All images are of the OCed Benchmarks. I can upload the defaults if need be.As they say a picture is worth a 1000 words so here it comes.OCed Core Clock can go to 150 but had a crash there once, so I went slightly lower.GTX 980RTX 2080 DefaultRTX 2080 OCedGTX 980 = 73/1839 8.8/450RTX 2080 Default = 142/3576 9.3/299RTX OCed = 155.3/3912 35.3/302.5GTX 980 = 73/.7/3084 22.3/138RTX 2080 Default = 124.6/5213 26.3/215.4RTX OCed = 133.2/5574 41.7/220.8RTX 2080 Default = 20448RTX OCed = 21511
Have a look here: http://www.redgamingtech.com/turings-crown-jewel-nvidia-dlss-benchmarks-with-final-fantasy-15/ That looks like %20+ performance increase.
So, has anyone purchased this? Interested to know what the feedback is, how hot does it get?
no gpu will get a 20 to 30% fps increase, thats a huge amount, 10fps gain is possible maybe 15 at a stretch, ppl bought the rtx range for ray tracing and thats absolutely pointless untill you have the moster 2080ti which has been proven, and tbh who the hell is going to stop mid game and go, ooh thats a nice reflection XD the only rtx that makes sense is the 2080ti imo, otherwise get a 1080ti
