    Reference n° RTX 2080 ROG STRIX GAMING


    I was looking into these cards and I noticed different reference numbers on the apparently same product :



    As you can see, only one number changes, but it must mean something right? The price tag is also a bit different for these two.
    And there are no information about this number on the official Asus website.

    I was tricked once by HDD reference numbers, so I'm being careful

    Thanks for your help

    Nvidia is binning SKU's of the same chip - the higher binned chips can be sold by the AIB's with a pre-applied OC and are sold at a higher cost to the AIB and ultimately to the consumer. The lower binned chips (lower cost to AIB and ultimately consumer) can not have any pre-applied (factory applied) OC settings. It does not necessarily mean the user can not apply an OC, just that the AIB (Add In Board Partner) can not apply an OC setting. Its Nvidia's way of segmenting the cards. The Non OC cards/Chips are sold closer to original MSRP - the higher binned cards can be sold with a factory applied OC and at a higher cost. You can save a little money on a card and apply your own overclock ( your mileage will vary as with all over clocking as to what you will actually obtain) - or spend a little more upfront and get a card with a factory OC and settings applied already ensuring your OC (as stated on specs). Here's a link to a video specifically discussing the RTX 2070 SKU's but applies to the other SKU's as well.

    one has a factory applied Overclock (higher boost clock) than the other.

    -90YV0C62-M0NM00 = no factory OC applied - User can still OC , meaning you can use ASUS tweak or MSI Afterburner etc to apply an over clock.
    Base/Boost clocks 1515/1740

    -90YV0C60-M0NM00 = factory OC applied, meaning the card comes by default with higher base and boost settings. The user may still be able to apply a better OC but at minimum you should get the higher factory applied base/boost clocks out of the box.
    Base/Boost clocks 1515/1890

    Check the base/boost clocks listed in the specs for each card with the matching reference numbers - you will see the differences. Again this is not an Asus only thing - It is Nvidia and the requirements they set on the AIBs regarding the different chip SKU's

    Thanks a lot for the information!

    It's actually hard to check for the differences on shop pages, because this released seems to have been rushed and it's hard to trust descriptions when every website has a different name for the cards. Even on the Asus website, all the products are not present in the lists.

    Now that we know what the 60/62 stands for, I'd love to know what the second part of the serial is about !

    There are still cards named M0NM00 and some with M0NA00.
    I couldn't find any difference between those ones...
