My configuration is the subsequent:
CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700x
CM: ASUS ROG STRIX B550-F WIFI Nvidia Gaming
RAM: 32GB Crucial Ballistix 3200Mhz overclocked Nvidia to 3733Mhz
GPU: MSI GeForce RTX 3080 VENTUS 3X OC – 10 GB
Power supply: Corsair RM750, 750W 80+ gold
I’m on a 27″ 1440p 144hz display screen, so 2560*1440 decision.
I did a couple of benchmarks Nvidia and in-sport checks (Apex, and specifically Red Dead Redemption 2, all ultra). I use a custom fan curve, which could be very classical (quiet beneath 50°C, then quietly as much as 70°C and then it is going speedy in a fighter aircraft turbine within the seventy five-80°C variety). The board is confined to 320W. I could Nvidia not check the DLSS because I don’t have a well suited sport. Now the assessment!
1. Out of the box: The card works, no crashes. But it was (opposite to the preliminary opinions) instead noisy, the fan curve rather classical but the board become getting pretty warm: as much as 78-79°C on RDR2 and up to 72°C on Apex. I changed into able to get it as much as eighty°C but the fanatics are VERY noisy, which is flawlessly ordinary (nothing surprising compared to my 2070). Basically, the Nvidia cardboard “wants to kind” continuously the 1950-2000 Nvidia Mhz, ingesting 315-320W. It hits the energy limit continuously underneath complete load, so it creates an risky enhance that most effective oscillates between 1815 and 1915-1950 Mhz. The overclocking potential on this version is manifestly restrained, however even at the high-quality “overclocking” fashions, the gains are low.
2. By slightly overclocking at zero.88v-0.95v for 1935-1975 Mhz, you get a greater solid improve and thus better pure performance than the “out of the box” card. The strength Nvidia intake stays high at 310-320W and at the temperature level we gain up to two degrees.
3. By undervolting as quality as I can in the meanwhile, at zero.818v-0.825v at 1830 Mhz. The consumption is among 195 and 230W, on common at 217W on RDR2 in Ultra ! Temperature max sixty six°C on Apex, and max seventy one°C on RDR2, an brilliant end result.
Note that relying for your card you would possibly want more or much less voltage at a given middle frequency to stay solid (zero.8 to 0.825v for example)
In phrases of overall performance, I as compared the great distinction in FPS (75/seventy six, 95/97, 113/115, a hundred twenty five/128) to be between 1.7% and 2.five% FPS difference: certainly impossible to perceive.
What is considerable is the lower temperatures and therefore specially the GPU fanatics which by no means exceed 66%. It is consequently discreet, specially in video games with no less than sound on RDR2, and on “multiplayer” games consisting of Apex, the cardboard is simply inaudible! 100W much less for an in reality comparable performance, it’s first rate.
four. Benchmarks: I run around 17700-17800 on 3DMark TimeSpy with my 1930 Mhz undervolt, my maximum stable overclock. For the 1830 Mhz 0.818v undervolt model, it’s round 17500, actually similar. The difference in 3Dmark factors actually does not seem to translate right into a distinction of more than 3% on the maximum (one hundred twenty five-126 FPS vs 129 FPS). I changed into able to rub the 18000 points, and I’m positive that by tweaking greater, it is feasible.
five. I additionally discovered that the reminiscence overclocks pretty well but it’s negligible thus far, be careful because it’s far errors-corrective, this means that that the performance will lower but the card will now not crash. I stay round +400/+450 Mhz on the reminiscence. I haven’t seen an impact of greater than +1 FPS. +seven-hundred-1000 Mhz appears to be possible too, but no concept at the impact on temps (as we haven’t any mem temp sensor).
6. It is possible, to lower the undervolt in the 0.7-zero.8v variety and around 1700-1750 Mhz, accomplishing the simple increase frequency of 1740Mhz, giving even decrease temperatures, 2-4°C much less, however the loss in overall performance turns into slightly extra “marked”, around 5-6%. Consumption drops to one hundred fifty-190W, which may please some humans, -40% of energy intake is something.
Conclusion: The MSI Ventus 3080 is a superb pictures card. I just like the best of the substances, the feeling as Nvidia well. It works without any problem now and runs quietly. Overall, the power intake of the cardboard will increase exponentially for the related performance gain. So it will become a first rate pix card whilst it’s miles undervolted. This is simply the manner to head for the RTX 3080, as others pointed out. The center ground is to be decided by means of the fan curve, noise tolerance, and energy intake. The “candy spot” of the Undervoltage seems to be 1830Mhz – zero.818v for me.
2 hundred FPS on Apex Legends in Ultra. An average around 70-90 FPS on Red Dead Redemption 2, in Ultra (with a 1.25x resolution scale, just remarkable). I don’t know what else to invite!
EDIT: New driving force got here out, this entire evaluation became made the use of driving force 456.55
EDIT 2: Now greater around 1800-1815Mhz, at 0.806v, +350mem overclock,sligthly higher temps, and no difference. Stability may additionally vary from card to card and you may need to present greater voltage. Driver 456.71
EDIT three: Latest driving force as of 12/23, all Nvidia precise and more solid than before. Cyberpunk 2077 ran flawlessly, I am again at zero.818v @1830Mhz, appears certainly like the candy spot. Rarely heats above 70°.
