As always, current GPUs and a few generations, have limited usage limits and a lot of Power Limit, also known as Power Target. These restrictions have given rise to problems in some cases, especially with the worst ASICs, where users may also experience minimal exposure due to the constant frequency of frequencies and usage. When it comes to overindulgence, it all gets complicated, because PT is very easy to get to, but EVGA comes up with a solution.
EVGA RTX 3080 FTW3, up to 450 watts for use of overulsers
There are times when the stars align, where it is possible for groups of overulsers and products to drop or reward a particular BIOS to remove
EVGA will be the first to do this and officially, there is no need to search for BIOS in the forums. The EVGA RTX 3080 FTW3 Ultra new BIOS will be available for the most advanced community and community enthusiast.
The problem is that exceeding the limits set by NVIDIA in the same way does not bring significant benefits in terms of wave lifting.
The set margins are so small that we will not be able to perform the new 13 MHz override, therefore, the new EVGA XOC BIOS will not remain at the 380W or 400W detected so far, but it will be able to go up. 450 watts, where it appears that the GA104 travels with greater ease to pass over.
How to Download, Enable and Use this new XOC BIOS
It was Jacob Freeman himself from EVGA who provided guidelines to enjoy this new BIOS, which must be installed by each user under his or her responsibility:
