We can see that the New RTX 2080 Super Gaming X Trio packs 3072 CUDA cores over its predecessors 2944 cores.
Since MSI turns off the fans when not under load, the card hovers around the upper 30C mark just sitting at the Windows desktop.
Turing based cards are usually power limited, so we’ll start out maxing out the power limit in MSI’s Afterburner. We get an additional 14%.
This really doesn’t seem to make much of a difference as we end up with roughly the same score.
Next, we’ll push the memory as far as we can. We make it clear up to 18,100 MHz effective on VRAM, a very impressive jump over the stock 15,500 MHz and much faster than we’ve ever gotten on another GPU.
This alone gets us almost 500 more points total in Time Spy which comes from 635 more points in the graphics score alone.
Pushing the core up, we are able to get +90MHz, which gives us a peak turbo speed of 2115 MHz.
Either way, we pick up an additional 260 points, beating our overall stock score by about 1000 points
