For firmware update you don't need another graphics card. You need it only for recovery when the card is bricked for whatever reason.Is there anyway to do the firmware update without a IGPU/Secondary GPU?
RTX4080 is surprisingly quiet ... at least all those coolers with a vapor chamber design. Most manufacturers use better coolers than in the previous generations.I decided to say F it and move ahead. Just ordered the MSI ventus 4080 being the cheapest one readily available and having one of the best scores out of all the cards on the egg. It looks like it's a little bit smaller than the other ones according to at least one review and runs super quiet. I don't think it's going to have extra juice available for overclocking but as far as I can tell that really doesn't matter much. If I get 4% extra FPS from overclocking instead of 5% I'm not going to cry about it since I'll still have an extra 200 bucks in my pocket and use less power. As far as the 4090 goes it's very impressive and I still sort of wish I could have gotten one for MSRP but I'm not going to be sad about an almost 50% jump in vram and performance over my previous card and I'm not sure if my home insurance covers video card fires so I feel a little bit better about that. 450w or more just doesn't quite sit right with me. Another Factor is that it looks like I can still get over 900 bucks for my 3080 TI ftw3 ultra on eBay for some weird reason. Not sure if people are actually paying that but it kind of seems that way if you do a search so time is of the essence. Will post results.
You're CPU bound most likely, you will see that a lot on a 40 series cards in RT games.I did a quick non scientific test with and without oc enabled in control in 4k with the main character standing in place doing the exact same thing both times for a minute or so. Without oc fps was hovering at 100-101. With max oc it was 100-102 fps
Not so much at 4K. Most of these new cards, you only get a couple of percent increase from overclocking anyway.You're CPU bound most likely, you will see that a lot on a 40 series cards in RT games.
Depends on the game and the overclock. I typically see about 7-8% more performance over stock with an overclock of +225 core / +1700 mem in GPU bound scenarios.Not so much at 4K. Most of these new cards, you only get a couple of percent increase from overclocking anyway.
CPU counts mainly at lower display resolutions, when you want to pass 144FPS+ for a specific monitor setups. Many games work like more FPS = faster animation. You can see it especially in some MMORPG. So people buy top hardware to play at 1080p
At 1440p/high details or 4k+, CPU counts significantly less. What more, even graphics card overclocking isn't as visible as we could think as the max boost doesn't mean that the card runs like that all the time.
1-2FPS difference in some games/tests was about what I seen on my RTX4080 before and after OC at 1440p and maxed out details, when some titles had 100FPS+. In theory should be 5-7% performance gain, in real is 1-3% average. 4K+ reacts better to GPU OC.
+150 didn't hold in game sadly but +125 seems fine. Sits around 2910 mhz in cyberpunk 2077 @ 1440p without really budging. The card seems pretty beastly though. Getting 80-100 fps in the city with tons of nps walking around. Not sure if these are "fake" frames or not but it feels smooth with ray tracing on psycho with dlss quality and all high settings. I'm sure it'll drop in a big battle outside but it's definitely a big step up from the 3080ti in this game
