Maybe flagship AIB cards will allow 800w power limit BIOS, but I really don't see the Founders Edition or reference design offering anything nearly that high.
who buys reference

i think my last reference design was two 4890's that i put waterblocks on

after that blocks for aftermarket cards got more common

Hah! You know the Founders Edition on the 3080/3080TI/3090 all have higher quality VRM and MOSFETs than the EVGA FTW3? They're built solid. Reference design is questionable.. that aims more at the Zotac, PNY, Gigabyte lower-end models though.

I really like the FE, they are built well and block availability is excellent .. the problem is the lower power limit for me. If I felt like dealing with shunt modding, I'd jump on one. The FE typically (at least with Ampere) have very good silicon quality on average. I'd say they're better binned than FTW3 or STRIX cards, but that's just my observations.

When I read rumors of the extreme power numbers -- sku's similar to Evga's Kingpin edition entered my mind. Many times rumor mongering conflate things and why it is more entertaining than anything else. It is somewhat concerning that the power requirements may be getting higher but it needs the performance context, too.


Not a fan of rumors based on a lot of them are wrong, missing overall context, and throw so many rumors so they can spin how right they are. If Nvidia can deliver dramatic performance gains then the wattage trade-of may be worth it for many enthusiasts.
