    I had SLI 2080 Ti for a bit. Too many problems, so I sold the second card.

    Surprisingly, performance is about the same, even in games where SLI looked like it was working.

    A few games did take advantage of the cards, like Tomb Raider, because they support DX12 mGPU.

    And GTA V and a few random games did have good scaling. But overall most games either did not work, or "worked" but without substantial performance improvements.

    Doing some more testing this week, then next week the card will more than likely move to destructive testing. All that will likely take a month, but we feel as though we now have a handle on what the outcome is going to be, just need to line up the proof.

    My 2080 Strix started giving me trouble the first day. I'm returning it today for a 2080 Ti before my 30 days is up. Good thing I bought it locally.

    I chose the Radeon VII over the 2080 due to the $180 in games. I also have had enough anxiety over space invaders I didn’t feel like WCing another card I have to worry about.

    2080ti is a sweet card though with performance that can’t be touched. Look at the cards max tdp. You want something with some headroom unless you’re into flashing BIOs (which is easy).

    All this was just a bad displayport cable. I had an extra in my box-o-cables, plugged it in, and all of my flickering problems went away. I ran benches, ran accelerated video in firefox, pulled up the webcam in my work's meeting software, and even did some hardware transcoding, all without a single issue. I ordered a couple Vesa certified 8k Displayport 1.4 cables to replace both of mine with.

    Had that exact issue yesterday. I had 2 DP cables that would flicker. Grabbed a Bizlink cable out of the closet (Much shorter cable) works perfectly.

    As per this evening...

    We can’t get the board to remain stable following driver load anymore. Stability has deteriorated significantly over time. I spent a couple hours with it today, the GPU shows corruption at windows load screen (immediately after loading driver), screen blinks, driver de-loads, code 49 in device manager. If I disable and re-enable the device, immediate corruption, rinse and repeat until a BSOD.

    We are sending it out to our other lab for imaging/analysis on the package, DRAM, and board for any faults. We may have some early shots by end of next week, although analysis will take longer.

    I returned my Asus Strix 2080 today to my local Canada Computers. The sales clerk said he's had over 20 returned this month alone. I was going to pick up another 2080 Ti but now I don't know. Are the RTX Titan's safe?

    Honestly, we will likely never know the answer to that question. I can only imagine that the issues plaguing damn near every RTX card out there likely transfer across to the Titan as well. At what? 2500+ bucks I don't know who's buying those. Someone with a lot more free money than I have, lol.

    I don't mind purchasing it. I just don't want to buy a 1080 since it's so old....

    I'd say if you want the 2080 then just get that. But buy from a brand that has a good warranty, and you'll be all set.

    Worst case, you have to do an RMA but this is not the end of the world.

    Also, sending back to the manufacturer is probably better, as the replacement can be from a new batch (if you go back to the store, you are probably getting another one from the same shipment).

    Bought an EVGA 2080 Ti Ultra XC Gaming 11GB card back in late November, it's still going strong to this date; I guess I'm one of the lucky ones. Then again, I haven't really pushed it that hard, kind of scared to it.

    Join us... in the Radeon VII owners club... no space invaders over here. ;) Watercooled it nips at the heels of the 2080ti (stock) in some games.

    I'm waiting for Ryzen 2 and Navi to build an all AMD rig. :D

    Mailing it is such a hassle.

    Interesting to hear how it goes bad on the driver loading. My EVGA 2080TI FTW3 just died randomly last night and while it works fine showing the BIOS post, the second Windows tries to load (what I'm assuming is the driver) it immediately BSODs.

    If I use onboard video it works fine with the card disabled in the device manager but if I enable it I get a BSOD.
