So this comes from a newbie that likes to watch graphs, but doesn't really know much about the technical aspects behind them: Both tested 2080s have higher average clockspeeds than their Ti counterparts, so this makes me wonder if the 2080s have better potential of higher OCs being squeezed out of them and maybe they could end up with better performance than the Tis at a lower cost.

Nope

2080 has 2944 cores
The TI has 4352 cores.
So its a lot more cores, running at that speed.

Testing method

When doing 1440p test are you using 2560x1440 or 3440x1440?
And what is cpu clock?
Awesome review, keep them comming

Usually its 2560.

When it comes to 3440x1440p we begin considering it considered as WQHD or widescreen. As far as markets go, there are 4 areas these days

1080p > 1440p (2560) > 1440p (3440) > 4k (3840x2160)

No, Nvidia has severely limited the available voltage and thus locked out serious OC. This is something that I missed being mentioned in the original reference card review. They have also locked the OC potential in other ways for the chips sent to the AIBs. Meaning something better is around the corner shortly.

They should still run at the average speed of the 2080s thought, right? I just found it funny, because Tom initially mentioned, that we're supposed to keep our eyes on the average rather than the peak

Okay, that makes sense. I kinda knew there was something better coming, given the fact that they release the Ti together. TiX or RTi coming.

It will in all probability be the RT Titan
