December 2019 update: Good news everyone! The card is still alive and kicking. I typically use the GeForce experience utility to automatically configure the optimal options for games and I haven't had any serious issues till now. It can even handle rdr2 without any need of additional fiddling with the options.
November 2020 update: Still works like a charm.
To put it simply. if you are running a 1440p GSYNC monitor at 144hz like myself (ASUS PG279Q) this is the card for you. By all means purchase a 2080Ti for £1100 minimum but i would ask yourself a few questions first;
What games do i play?
what monitor do i own?
what is my budget?
could i spend that extra money on anything else? (I9-9900K maybe?)
do i like raytracing?
am i ever going to buy a 4k monitor? (if so, how soon?)
i asked myself all these questions and made my purchase in october and i am so happy! i have had no problems so far and i have many delicious frames :)
I'm upgrading from an msi GTX 1060 Gaming X 6GB and the msi 2080 super Trio provides the same simplicity and excellent temperature/noise levels along with twice as much power/performance.
Before this 2080 card I tried an msi Duke 2080 OC and an Asus 2080 super O8G Strix but both had some very disappointing issues.
The Duke and Strix emitted VERY LOUD low tone buzz. I mean: VERY LOUD. Much louder than the fans. The fan noise will be the least of your problems if you end up with a buzzing RTX card. The buzz can be heard from 5-10 meters away from the other side of the room. The problem isn't simply the decibels, it's also the nature/texture of the noise. The low frequency components make it extremely annoying. Those cards sounded like small voltage transformers in my machine. Some people describe it as "electrical noise". The Duke was buzzing even under low/zero load while the Strix started buzzing loudly at about 30-40% load. In contrast my Trio starts becoming loud (fans + some coil whine) only closer to 80% load but even in that case the coil whine is much quieter and smoother without low frequency components and it isn't louder than the fans. It isn't that super ugly buzz. TBH, I might be just lucky with this single Trio card. I don't know whether the quiet nature of my Trio applies to all other Trio cards. For me the loud low tone buzz of the other RTX cards was an absolute dealbreaker and that's why I kept looking for other cards.
Under low load my Trio can operate with passive cooling without using its fans even if my room temperature is well above 20 celsius degrees. The Duke and Strix have smaller heatsinks than the Trio so they have to turn on/off the fans every few minutes. This alone isn't a huge issue when implemented well like in case of the Duke 2080 and msi GTX 1060 Gaming X. Unfortunately the Strix fails miserably in case of fan control. It's "zero decibel" mode has to be activated from software and this is possible only after selecting the "quiet bios" using a physical switch on the video card. With quiet bios the default fan curve allows the card to run quite hot under load and the "zero decibel" mode has a buggy fan control algorithm. Instead of turning on/off the fans every few minutes it turns them on/off every 2-3 seconds that result in revving. The fan control algorithm might not have hysteresis or it might not respect the physical minimum RPM of the fans. Asus definitely didn't think through their "zero decibel" mode from a technical perspective but they still used the "0db" label to market the card.
Besides having a larger heatsink and much less coil whine (without ugly low tone buzz) the Trio goes a step further to ensure silent low temperature operation under low load. It can lower the core and memory clocks to 300 MHz and 400 MHz. The other cards seem to operate at high frequencies even under low load. With default settings (firmware behaviour without manipulating the Trio from desktop software) the core clock varies between 300 MHz and 2000 MHz while the memory clock is between 400 MHz and 7750 MHz based on load (and perhaps some other factors).
The MSI Trio is a LARGE video card that weights about 1500 grams. It's prone to sagging. It comes with a bracket that isn't too good so you might want to buy or create a better alternative. The smallest fan of my Trio is a bit noisy but it is still nowhere near as annoying as the loud low tone buzz of the other cards I tried. The fan operates only while gaming and even in that case it isn't annoying. If it was then I could try to replace the fan motor entirely.
For these reasons, raw performance is key - and I've been very pleased. ML training takes a lot of horsepower (or a long wait) and this card delivers in spades. Projects which I'd previously abandoned as taking too long to compute are now virtually trivial - run times in minutes instead of hours. Very impressive. So far this card has made light work of everything I've thrown at it from a machine learning aspect.
The gaming element is also brilliant - haven't found anything that this card can't run in 4K at 60fps (limit of my monitor).
The card is also pretty quiet, even under load, which I take to come from the MSI cooling setup.
Fitting the card was a 2 minute job, no compatibility issues and simple driver install. The only slight negative I have on this purchase is the included reinforcement bar (to prevent this heavy card sagging in the case) - the fitting instructions aren't all that clear and the bar itself took a fair bit of trial and error to find a good fit - a bit of a concern as I didn't want any risk of the bar fouling in the card fans. Not a worry, just took a bit of faffing about in an otherwise faultless process.
