Foreign players compared RTX 2080 Ti mining before and after performance: temperature rise 20 ℃, game frame rate decline

The prosperity of pre digital cryptocurrency has led to the large-scale purchase of graphics cards by many mines around the world. Recently, Internet cafes in many places around the world have also participated in mining in their spare time. However, some people are worried that the graphics cards eliminated after mining will flow into the market, so some foreign players have tested the same RTX 2080ti graphics card before and after mining to compare the actual performance gap of the game before and after mining.

Foreign media testing games compares two MSI RTX 2080 Ti gaming x trio graphics cards, and tests them with i9 10900k and MSI z490 motherboards. One of the graphics cards is a brand new box, and the other has gone through 18 months of mining.
The foreign media used the games of wild Escort: Redemption 2, cyberpunk 2077 and battlefield 5 for comparison. The results show that the average frame rate of RTX 2080ti video card after mining is about 5 frames lower, the core temperature of the new video card has been stable at about 56 ℃, the temperature of the mine card is as high as 75 ℃, the average temperature difference is 20 ℃, and the maximum temperature difference is 30 ℃. At the same time, the GPU core frequency of the graphics card after mining has declined to varying degrees. The new RTX 2080ti can be stabilized at 1920mhz, while the other one can only reach 1800MHz or even lower.

In the test of Mafia: the final version, the temperature difference between the two graphics cards reached 30 ℃, which shows that different games have different pressure on the graphics card.
Foreign media said that the main reason for the temperature rise of RTX 2080ti graphics card after mining was the failure of silicone grease, but foreign media did not replace the old graphics card with silicone grease, so it was unable to compare the real impact of high-intensity mining on graphics card in detail.
NVIDIA RTX 2080ti, launched in 2018, adopts Turing architecture and supports optical tracking and DLSS 2.0.
