Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2080 Ti GAMING OC 11G review
You will spot two power connectors (8-pin) and at the backside, you'll find a matte black solid backplate, unfortunately, is it completely closed. The Gigabyte RTX 2080 Ti GAMING OC has a slightly increased clock frequency of 15 MHz and the memory runs at reference frequencies (11GB GDDR6 / 14 GHz effective data-rate). With the help of XTREME ENGINE software by pressing a button the card will go into OC mode and gets an extra 15 MHz tweak

Tech Support and Basic Questions Thread - December 04, 2021
Ryzen 9 3rd gen 3900x, nvidia GeForce rtx 3080, x2 8gb ddr4, 1 tb ssd. It’s a sky tech prebuilt. I’m used to playing an Xbox series X so I’ve gotten spoiled by being able to play 60fps on most games.

PC elitism
The biggest example of where a "you get what you pay for" doesnt work is the geforce 2080 ti and the geforce 2070 super. The 2070 super is \~$700 while the 2080 is \~$1400. There isn't even a 15% upgrade from the two, they are both so close together stat-wise that you will hardly ever notice the difference. So yes, spending your money on a reliable product is important and you should do your research, that doesn't mean that just because a product is X amount of money doesn't mean it's better or even worth the buy.

Nvidia RTX 3080 vs 3080 Ti: which GPU is best?
Similarly, in the case of Cyberpunk 2077, it was the RTX 3080 that was once again the faster card, not the RTX 3080 Ti. However, the difference you're getting versus the RTX 3070 is much starker, in many cases boosting performance by around 20fps.
