The radial air cooler used on the card and the base and boost clocks for the card, posted by Dell, point specifically to the Founders Edition version of the card.says dell under sub vendor and tu104 under gpu
Name is Nvidia GeForce rtx 2080
Edit ko888 I’m not sure how you came about that answer but it is oddly specific and I will take it! Thank you everyone appreciate the help
One of the Alienware configurations has Dual NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 8GB GDDR6 with NVIDIA NVLink SLI Enabled both running with stock air coolers.Thank u
Edit if I were to nvlink 2 of these 2080s is it worth it? Presupposing I had an extra one on hand.
Also would I need extra cooling? Liquid or otherwise
Edit2 card runs at 80c currently is that ok
It's usually due to poor computer case ventilation. The maximum allowed temperature for that card is 88°C before thermal throttling will occur.Thank you very much. Is there a reason why my card is running 79-80c regularly ? Only playing Fortnite which Ive read isn’t a very demanding game — but settings are close to all full ultra and running a 1440p UltraWide.
No, As said before, there will only be an improvement in performane IF the game itself supports SLI/NVlink.. I think your PSU would also be a limiting factor for supporting a second 2080.Ok cool. Is it safe to assume that a dual nvlink setup would hit that desired FPS with 2x 2080s?
Also probably not able to run it with the case I have if vent. Is the problem right?
That 850W PSU is sufficient. Dell sells an Alienware R8 model that comes with dual RTX 2080 cards using that exact same PSU.I think Fortnite supports it but what I read says it won’t benefit from it bc it’s not demanding
My psu is Alienware liquid cooled 850w is that too low?
Like I've said repeatedly, Dell already sells an Alienware R8 with dual NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 8GB GDDR6 cards with NVIDIA NVLink SLI Enabled. Both graphics cards use their stock air coolers.Do we think I can swing the nvlink without overheating or do I need another cooling option like liquid or something?
Screen going black and then coming back is throttling due to overheating probably ?
