MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Lightning Z Power Consumption
I compiled the power consumption results by testing each card under idle and full stress when the card was running games. Each graphics card manufacturer sets a default TDP for the card which can vary from vendor to vendor depending on the extra clocks or board features they plug in on their custom cards. The default TDP for the RTX 2080 Ti is 260W (Founders Edition) while the MSI custom model has a TDP of more than 410 Watts when overclocked and just shy of 400W when it was loaded under a normal game.
Also, it's worth noting that the 12nm FFN process from TSMC is a refinement of their 16nm FF node. NVIDIA is cramping even larger amount of transistors and more cores than their previous cards, making it one of the densest chip built to date. It's likely to consume a lot of power and the results are reflective of that.
