AORUS GeForce RTX 2080 Xtreme 8 GB Graphics Card Review – Round Goes The RGB On A Triple Fan, Custom PCB Design
AORUS GeForce RTX 2080 XtremeOctober, 2018
We used the following test system for comparison between the different graphics cards. Latest drivers that were available at the time of testing were used from AMD and NVIDIA on an updated version of Windows 10. All games that were tested were patched to the latest version for better performance optimization for NVIDIA and AMD GPUs.

- All games were tested on 2560×1440 (2K) and 3840×2160 (4K) resolutions.
- Image Quality and graphics configurations have been provided in the screenshots below.
- The “reference” cards are the stock configs while the “overclock” cards are factory overclocked configs provided to us by various AIB partners.
AORUS GeForce RTX 2080 OC Overclocking
Since the card is clocked at overclocked specifications, we are kind of left with limited headroom to overclock. I pushed the core to +175 MHz beyond its overclock profile and +1070 MHz on the memory. That is still ahead of what I accomplished on the reference PCB cards so let's take a look at the performance.
I had the power and temp target slider maxed out in EVGA Precision X1 so that meant that the GPU was under no restrictions or blocks when it came to overclocking. The clocks were stable after testing for an hour under stress load.
