They have a higher base and Boost clock. Much like Pascal, though, all Turing cards whether from an AIB or directly from NVIDIA overclock within a margin of error of each other until you go with exotic cooling methods like liquid nitrogen.What's special about Founder Edition of these nVidia video cards? I don't get it.
Overclock number means nothing with Boost. You want to look at what your Boost clock is after a long gaming session. My Founder's Edition settles around 2050 MHz after 30-45 minutes with the overclock I have on it after peaking around the low 2100s, and that seems to be about what everyone else is getting generally regardless of cooler.I'd say this an open and shut case. I second everyone else's posts throughout. Personally I cant speak for all cards but the strix 2080ti 11gb took a decent OC +220 core and +1140Mem in Afterburner. In general I've heard of less on FE cards but they start off higher anyway. I went strix for the price $1000 on sale before tax like 2 or so months ago. Biggest gripe I have is I have the 280w version which only allows the power slider to got up to 112% in afterburner. I'm not sure what the FE power slider goes up to but that would be the only thing I would look into personally. Also the cooler is very powerful on the strix. I have the card vertical and overclocked and I've never seen th top side of 75 even in benchmarks like timespy extreme. The differences are minor in the end but head to head reviews will pretty much tell you what's up in the broadest way while your experience will vary from card to card. Looks and cooling capabilities are probably the absolute largest differences you ar likely to notice between AIB and FE
