Overall Review: This card is crazy fast and was worth the wait and F5 spamming for weeks, any game I play in 1440p, maxed settings capped at 144fps, and ran up to about 74°C. Not to mention RTX games run so much better on this card. Need to test the OC capabilities of this card but I've heard great things, and looking forward to video editing with it as well! The looks just fit so well with my build even though it may not be for everyone.
Also a separate note, please don't buy this card for an absurd amount of money from a scalper, I promise you patience will be worth it and hopefully there's enough stock to meet demand soon so nobody has to play the game of luck and see if they win!
Pros: - Runs everything on all ultra settings 60FPS or above in 4K
- Card never goes above 67c when under heavy load and idles around 28c to 32c due to its MASSIVE heatsink
- Has tons of future potential once ray tracing and DLSS become available and will outpace predecessors by huge gains
- Out runs the 1080ti by 2 or 4 percent, and my old 1080 by 44 percent or more which is a HUGE leap in performance
- Super quiet even running at 80 percent fan speed
- Is very sturdy and looks way better in person than in the pictures especially with its RGB lighting
- The X1 software is very useful with controlling all features and monitoring of the card, but is still in beta so there will be more on that (especially if they add a rainbow effect with the cards lighting in the software but wouldn't change how solid it has been in my experience so far for being in beta!)
- And of course EVGA's supreme build quality and service
Cons: - Price, but with implementation of the new technology it will be well worth it in my opinion
Overall Review: I run this card along with the following (including graphics card in list):
Case - Cooler Master MasterCase MC500Mt
CPU - Ryzen 7 2700x (Corsair H150i Pro Liquid Cooler push/pull config total of 6 120mm fans on radiator that is front mounted)
GPU - EVGA RTX 2080 XC ULTRA GAMING
RAM - Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 3000mhz CL15 Timings
Motherboard - ASUS ROG Crosshair VII Hero (Wi-Fi)
PSU - EVGA 1200w P2
Storage - 1 Samsung 500GB 960 EVO M.2, 1 Samsung 250GB 960 EVO M.2, and a 1TB Seagate Barracuda 2.5in (yes thats 2.5in not 3.5in) HDD
- Additional 2 top mounted fans for exhaust (all fans are Corsair ML Red LED 120mm fans for radiator, and ML Red LED 140mm fans for top and back exhaust making for some awesome air cooling)
Pros: First off, this graphics card is amazing. It does anything I want it to do with ultra settings in 4k on any game, I usually get 60fps and above in almost any game and the design of the card is built really well along with a beautiful design and RGB lights. This card has been running perfectly for 3 months and is extremely quiet especially with its >60C auto fan and even with intense benchmarks this card has never gone above 69C. All in all this is an amazing card and is worth the money for its reliability, performance, and looks. MSI makes awesome components along with their motherboards which I use a X370 gaming pro carbon with this graphics card and it makes for a really nice look for your build.
Cons: This card is awesome and I have no complaints.
Overall Review: I would totally recommend this card to everyone that can afford it.
