The 2080 recommended power supply is 650. So a 600 would be on the low side, but should still at least power up the card. I'm guessing the new 2080 has 2 8 pins or 1 6 pin and 1 8 pin? Are both connectors plugged in?

Sounds like a power supply or cable issue. Not much you can do aside from making sure you are using the right cables and they are on the correct ports on the power supply if it's modular. Or get a better quality and more powerful PSU.
