I don't have a design to test it on, but I would be interested in testing the devices against the data sheet and an actual 3080 as a comparison. When I say testing I mean testing the various parameters listed in the data sheet.

This sounds like fun. I wish I had the time to do testing, but it would 
be fun to support such an effort.

Then again, the lab has started to get up to speed again.
