RTX 2080 Ti various brands and options.

Recommended Posts

I will be getting RTX 2080Ti soon and I have several options with +/- $100 variance.

 

Brands : MSI, Gigabyte, ASUS, EVGA - which is the most reliable? I've always been using EVGA

My understanding that OC-ed card require most cooling, i.e. triple fans would be preferable in that scenario. The only triple-fan solution has Gigabyte OC-ed product, but I have never had any experience with that brand. Any concerns?

 

Thanks

Dmitriy

I've been using Gigabyte motherboards and graphics cards almost exclusively for the last 10+ years and never had a single issue. That's also the brand that my favorite local "brick and mortar" PC store recommends due to the lowest failure rates. I've heard Gigabyte's support isn't the best, but I cannot comment on that as I've never had to use it... 😉 I've had two of their WindForce cards (the triple-fan type) and they were great: cool and quiet.

HTH,

Tym

Hello,

Gigabyte motherboard and Gigabyte GTX 1070 ti here. No concerns at all.

Not to be a contrarian, but I have used ASUS almost exclusively for my own PC builds over the past 10+ years and couldn't be happier.  In reality, the top brands will all serve you well, my friend.  They are all pretty reliable, but unfortunately they can all have failures... there's no 100% reliable solution.  But, like I said, I have had sterling performance from all the ASUS products I've used over the years.  My latest procurement, an ASUS GTX-2080Ti is humming along very nicely.  You'll be fine no matter which of the top brands you decide on.

I just recently purchased an EVGA Black 2080ti which is their base model at $999 directly from EVGA.  Despite being the base model it consistently runs up to 1800 on the boost clock and stays relatively cool (mid 70's).  When I purchased it, I had to submit an auto notify request when it gets in stock and then jump on it when I received the notice.  A pretty good deal in my opinion

Thank you guys,

But how important Dual/Triple Fan feature is? Is it worth to invest?

Six of one, half a dozen of the other.  Each manufacturer has their own cooling method and both are acceptable for their designs.  Larger fans move more air volume typically at a slower rate, smaller fans move less air volume at a faster pace.  Both work.  It is possible to have less fan noise with two larger fans, but I don't have the data to prove that.  You should be just fine either way.

I am an ASUS user but the past three GPUs have been MSI and cannot fault them, I would pick the best to fit your budget.

I've been a long-time eVGA guy, but they have completely fallen on their faces with eVGA Precision software support for the 2080 series cards.  It has been an unbelievable and downright embarrassing succession of seriously-bugged, dysfunctional failed betas...the OSD still doesn't work at least half the time.  If I'm going to have to use an MSI utility (Afterburner) to monitor the card and control fans, I may as well get an MSI card.

I've owned GPU's from MSI, ASUS, and EVGA and have always been happy. My current 2080Ti is a Zotac Amp card, and it's incredibly quiet and powerful for the price.

While Zotac is not as established as the larger players, I've been thoroughly impressed with this card.

MSI,EVGA, ASUS, Gigabyte, Zotac, is all good Cards i recomend the ones with better cooling keep in mind that the GPU runs hotter with same cooler then the 1080TI.

I have Galax OC Lab edition , they make very good cards dont know if they ar cheap in US , made in China but most of them ar made there.

The only reason these days to buy an EVGA-badged card is their painless RMA procedure. That might be handy because a small percentage of the 2080ti cards fail almost immediately.

I spec'd a EVGA RTX 2080ti Hybrid and it really worked out in my particular build.   I was considering the Seahawk but eventually went with the EVGA badged for the exact reason jabloom mentioned.

nice, like the hybrid cards and want the gpu in the 40-45c range not  70-75 as the air cooled ones,
