Default A New Toy

Zotac RTX 2080 Amp. I had to remove a front case fan to get this to fit. I definitely need a larger case.

I was concerned about the driver I downloaded from Nvidia. The screens indicated it was a 3000 series driver. However, it installed properly and displayed the correct series on a little widget I keep on my desktop for monitoring temperatures.

It passed mfaktc-2047's self-test with no errors. I had a few TF's to run for a benchmark. It never dropped below 2900 GHz-d/day. The temperature leveled off in the upper 60's on the C scale. In a large case with more fans, it might run a few degrees cooler. I downloaded the latest version of GPU-Z. It indicated a board power draw of just under 200W.

It is not my intention to use this for TF work. My preferred is wavefront P-1 using gpuOwl. I may mix in some LL-DC's as well. My 1080 took around 3.5 hours to run a wavefront P-1. A recent LL-DC in the 57-million area took 39 hours to complete. I don't know how this GPU will handle those work types. I guess I will find out. I have attached some images for inspection.
