    Hello. I ordered that gigabyte but date to buy from shop is unknown . I prefer Gigabyte. Also palit is 1 day to take so ready. . So question. Wait for gigabyte dont know how long, or take palit? : )

    In past i had good experience with gigabyte , 1080 xtreme aorus, 1080 ti fe gbyte, and 1080 ti aorus. Not problems. Never had palit heh. And palit is 300zl cheaper !!!

    I received the Gigabyte OC card yesterday in the United States. The card was for my son and he loves it. It overclocked fairly well and we haven't had any problems with it. We got it for $1080 USD directly from Amazon US because they were late shipping it.

    If you read over on the overclock.net forums, the Gigabyte Gaming has one of the highest power limits of any card available with stock vbios. Most folks are flashing the Galaxy 380W vbios to their reference PCB cards without issue though (except FE owners, which are apparently vbios locked). Still, it's nice to be able to have a solid power limit to play with without messing around in the vbios.

    The upside of the Palit is that it appears to be compatible with reference design full cover water blocks, which the Gigabyte Gaming is not. If you want to water cool right away, do not go with the Gigabyte (though the Gigabyte Windforce DOES fit the reference block).

    There are some comparison data in the first post in this thread: https://www.overclock.net/forum/27583630-post1.html

    And this post is very useful to compare power limits of the various models: https://www.overclock.net/forum/27651386-post1625.html

    My Gigabyte clocks to +150/+450 (haven't tried pushing the mem clock yet) beyond the standard OC that it has, on air. I'm really hoping one of the water block manufacturers will give it some love and come out with a block for it so I can put it under water.

    I can also say that my Gigabyte is blessedly free of any detectable coil whine, which drives me nuts. I've no experience with Palit, so I can't say whether they are typically plagued with it. Also, the Gigabyte triple fan setup is extremely quiet. I need to push them up above about 65% speed in order to hear them above my very quiet GT water cooled setup. Likely any other 2080ti triple fan setup would be similar though.

    GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Windforce OC vs GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Gaming OC.

    Hello. I oredered GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Gaming OC , 20.09 september, but date shipping is unknown , and getting emails from shop about next delay . Also version GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Windforce OC is ready to buy actually and i can have it just tommoro

    . So my question take Windforce OC or wait for Gaming longer ( maybe ) ?

    Any differences between that 2 models? And Windforce is 200zł cheaper.

    Take wforce and no oc?


    Palit not.

    Doubt it really makes much difference seeing as these cards have a couple of built in "ceilings" that kick in to stop it clocking too far. Regardless of what card you buy they'll be within a few fps of each other at most, vs the price premium of getting a card that has a slightly higher boost clock.

    They are all power limited... so it does. I'll get at least another 10% out of my Asus Dual after I mod it.

    Yeha modding can add a bit but considering the price of the card its not a route many will go i'd imagine. Last card i power modded was an 8500 le with the pencil trick :p

    Well... getting a card with a 380W limit vs 300W is a possibility is all I was eventually going for.

    Wait for the Gaming. 366w power limit will be nice to have in the long run.
