How many heat pipes it has? Two fans may have bad thermal issue in gaming.

I understand your reasoning and I'm technically on the same boat because I have not upgraded to a 2080Ti (yet) and I don't think this is a good price, but to play devil's advocate... there's so much more involved than simple price/performance; even your coveted 2070 Super is far less cost-efficient in terms of FPS per dollar than something like an RX570. Everything gets less cost-efficient as you get to the higher tiers, so why did you pick the 2070 Super? And there's the fact that some games can be basically unplayable at high resolutions/settings with certain cards. Yes technically I could play Assasin's Creed Oddysey with a 2070 at 4K <30 FPS , but to me, that's a miserable experience. Having something like a 2080 Ti, even if it costs ridiculously more relative to performance, if it transforms my gaming experience from barely playable to enjoyable, that extra price premium is well justified.
Nothing scientific. I feel that if you were to use the Titan RTX as a baseline (i know there are still better), and went down from there, that everything above a 2070 Super (including whatever Navi gpu replaces the Radeon VII), that the performance differential would be within a single digits from the Titan RTX. I think that 2070, 2060 super, RX5700, would probably see double digit performance differentials from from the Titan RTX. On average. So I guess that is where I got in my mind the arbitrary 2070 super as a comparison. I do have alerts set up for 2080ti so I have all my bases covered and will evaluate price/performance if/when I think the time is appropriate. I'm on a 1080, and I don't really see an urgent need for an upgrade yet.

I got this card from Amazon around Prime day, open-box, for $870 with CA taxes. I installed the card and was playing graphically intensive games at 4K ultra settings around 60 fps, depending on the game. It's a beast of a card. I installed the Zotac Firestorm software, and I didn't like it. Then I tried changing the RGB on my card, and I was unable to. The RGB always stayed a deep blue. I reached out to Zotac customer support and asked about warranty for open-box items. The rep was confused, because it looked like my card was being RMA'd and still at Zotac (I guess the lighting problem was the reason the card was returned to Amazon). The rep then said they would give me a one-time exception, and provide my open-box GPU a 2 year warranty. Then they directed me to the Zotac support number. Great, I don't have to return the card! (I really wanted to be able to control the lighting!) I called the Zotac tech number, left some messages, never heard from them over 2 days of calling. Called the customer service number, and they they said I should use the chat support, so I did. We tried solving the problem, and we couldn't. This is where it goes downhill.

I open an RMA, and it is rejected 2 days later. They tell me to return the card to Amazon for a replacement. I said, they won't replace an open-box item. They keep pushing me to return to Amazon. I keep telling Zotac that I was told my GPU would be covered. They said, nope we aren't doing that. We went back and forth and they provided me with a one-time RMA inspection, and no warranty there after. I still had about 3+ weeks before I couldn't return at Amazon, and since the RMA facility is in Southern California, and I'm up North I though it would be a quick turn-around. Zotac claims they will resolve an RMA within 30 days of receiving an item. I sent the GPU in on a Thursday, and they received it on the following Monday. They entered my GPU into there system 4 days later on a Friday. The following week I asked if I could have an update. They said it was still in a queue to be tested, and that I won't hear anything until they find a resolution. There is no way to check on the status of an RMA, no dash, no nothing tied to a Zotac account.

I have until tomorrow to return the card. At this point I'm stuck with the GPU since there's probably no way Amazon will give me an extended return window big enough to wait for the card to return from Zotac, fixed or not.

Zotac support is trash. I will buy from a more reputable seller in the future.

How is Zotac with warranty service? The only component I have had fail in my 24 years building computers is video cards and I usually stick with EVGA because of their excellent service but $1050 for a 2080 Ti is tempting and it would go on my Cash Magnet so I would have AMEX's extended warranty.
Not good. Read my post.

No, there is no warranty on open box items. Credit cards only extend the manufacturer warranty and in this case there was no valid warranty. It also doesn't kick in until the manufacturer's warranty ends.

Amazon has offered me replacements for open box items. They need to have the item in warehouse stock or estimated to arrive in stock (may have to wait a week), but they do offer it if available. Just thought I'd mention this.

I missed a part in my story! The reason Zotac would accept my RMA is after I reached out to Amazon. Amazon would not replace my open-box item and forced Zotac to accept my RMA. If I was more confident that Amazon would replace my item I would have applied more pressure on them. Thanks for letting me know that Amazon does replace open-box items some times.

They would have known it's open-box because they require an invoice to prove when you purchased. I used my Amazon CC, and it does not have purchase protection.

Nope, but you do have 7 days to print a return label. And 30 days when the label is sent to return the item.

I decided to have a chat with Amazon customer support, and they said:
"Taking a look unfortunately I don't have the option to replace the unit, since it is an open box item, I can still provide you with the label to send it back for the refund."

Asked if that's the case even when an item is defective, and they said yea. The good news is I got a return label, and have 30 more days to send the GPU back. That should give me enough time to hear back from Zotac!
