Whats the power limit on this card ?

EDIT: Power limit is definitely a deciding factor when buying this type of card, as most buyers wont get a cherry picked sample like OC3D. I suggest that its something you should incorporate into future GPU reviews.

Why are you so hung up on power limit, if you want to go down that route get a RTX Titan + water/LN2 setup + custom bios, even Kingpin would if EVGA sold Titans.

All the 2080 Ti cards are nice, it all comes down to cooling and warranty as to which is best for you.

I reckon you'll most probably hit power limit before cooling becomes an issue on this card.. Also why not include power limit in the review ? When paying 1200 smackeroonies for a GPU all this is useful information. I think sometimes people forget what the OC in OC3D stands for

We live in an age where we want to squeeze the most out of our cards and not have to invest in a loan to pay for the electric bill at the end of the month.

My opinion on power is that I want more performance for less Watt per hour The moment I see a card with 3 connectors, I move on without any temptation!

Wasnt cherry picked fella

MSI can also be a bit slack with details in what the actual limits mean beyond the normal % you see in afterburner

Personally I've never liked using percentages as they tend to be ambiguous. Also GPU-z assumes default power is the rated power but this is not always so and as it appears to use percentage based power calculations then they too can be wrong.

The NvSMI utility that installs with the driver can display power levels for the card in Watts.

D:\>"C:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\NVSMI\nvidia-smi.exe" -q -d power
