We don't know how many sales the new Turing-based GPUs NVIDIA has made but it certainly has generated a lot of reviews. [H]ard|OCP have been working hard on overclocking the Founders Edition RTX 2080 and recently published their findings. They tried three different methods; simply setting the fan to 100%, running NVIDIA's new scanner tool, which does not void your warranty, as well as a manual overclock. They ran into some issues with the scanner tool and limited success with only increasing the fan speed, unsurprisingly the manual OC provided the best results. That manual overclock managed to hit and maintain 2055MHz on the core, which some noticeable improvements.
"We finally got in the RTX 2080 video cards we purchased, and we have been putting those to good use. While Brent is banging out a real-world gameplay preview, I have been seeing just where our RTX 2080 Founders Edition ends up in terms of overclocking. We finally got a solid handle on what our particular Turing GPU and memory are capable of."
