EVGA gifts ‘extreme overclockers’ a 450W beta BIOS for the RTX 3080 FTW3 Ultra

Out of the box, EVGA’s custom GeForce RTX 3080 FTW3 Ultra Gaming (10G-P5-3897-KR) is already one of the higher powered and faster running RTX 3080 cards you can buy (well, can’t buy). But if you happen to own one and fancy yourself an “extreme overclocking user,” there is a beta BIOS available that will could possibly facility even higher clocks.

The beta BIOS jacks up the maximum power target to 450W, which is a 50W increase over the card’s stock 400W power limit. Nvidia’s Founders Edition variant is configured at 320W, and as noted by Videocardz, most of the custom models that go higher top out at 340W.
