Question Did I Buy A Broken 2080 Ti


Jul 16, 2018
Hi guys, I got a Asus Strix 2080 Ti from reddit user. Paid through Paypal invoice.
My rig:
10850K @ 5Ghz
Crucial Ballistix RGB 3600 MHz
Corsair RM 750W
Windows 10 64 bit 20H2
Strix 2080 Ti stock clocks On Nvida driver 452.06

My scores in benchmarks seem to be below the average:

And my performance in CBP 2077 is so poor. I get 30 fps with DLSS and Ultra settings on 4K. While these guys get 45 fps and sometimes 60 fps in CBP 2077:

you cannot base your comparisons on YouTube videos.
the majority of them are there just to draw in views so you cannot go by what they state.
most of these types of videos make over-the-top claims just to get people like you to come and watch.
and video is easily edited to make a point that may not be true in real life.

in regards to the benchmark comparisons;
do you know whether or not the scores higher than yours are from systems with high overclocks?
the majority of top ranking scores are from extreme "professional" overclockers.
those above average are mostly from others that have also boosted their performance beyond stock specs.

considering your 3DMark score is a bit below average you may just need to do some tweaking inside the BIOS & OS;
make sure you have the best BIOS options in place,
that all of your motherboard drivers & BIOS are up-to-date,
that your Power Plan has the best options selected,
that your OS isn't being bogged down with background processes, etc...
