Introduction We have reviewed the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 SUPER, and now it is time to overclock the new video card and see what it can deliver in gameplay performance when pushed to the max. We will evaluate it at 4K, with Ray Tracing, and DLSS Upscaling. If you are not familiar with the GeForce RTX 4080 […]

Thanks @Brent_Justice for the great review. It's funny watching the 7900 RTX and this trade blows.

This will be an awesome guide for me with target goals with the new Zotac.
Just spent the last 3 hours gaming with Horizon Forbidden West and applied 180 to core and 500 to memory, with 110+, and had a completely stable 2850 MHz/24 GHz at 58c or lower/250W-180W. Thanks Brent again for the review. I can't explain enough at how impressed I am with this silicon's perf/power/heat efficiency. I was able to use x16/DLAA with a 47 FPS (a little rough) to somewhat solid 60 FPS (ideal) for this game which was not achievable before w/o using DLSS Quality.
Was that at 4k? I'm averaging 200fps on my box according to the amd control app.

Yep. The 4080 Super and 4090 are 4K only. The 3090 Ti is 5120x1440 and 4K. All three otherwise are nearly identical in terms of CPU/Mem/NVMe/Motherboards with slight variations.
Did some more tinkering yesterday and it appears the most I'm going to get out of the Zotac is 2895-2910 MHz. Tried the +230/+750 and it peaked at around 2910-2925 but wasn't stable. Backed it down to 220/+700 and is rock solid. Once again amazed at how cool it stays even when OCd. Basically, 57-60c, fans on auto, and sticking to almost entirely at 30%. Power usage hung between 180-220W when GPU usage was ~90-98%.
