AT A GLANCE

GPU NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 T i

MEMORY 12GB GDDR6X

CLOCK SPEED OC mode: 1,845 MHz (Boost Clock) / Gaming mode : 1,815 MHz (Boost Clock)

SIZE 3 18. 5 X 14 0.1 X 5 7.78 MM

PRICE $ 2 ,7 99

The brand new ASUS ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3080 Ti OC takes NVIDIA’s flagship GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and kicks it up to 11. I have no doubt that it’ll be one of the most coveted custom cards around, assuming you can stomach the price. At an eyewatering $2,799, it costs as much as a whole system.

This is one of the most aesthetically pleasing cards I’ve seen. The tough-as-nails industrial look is brought out by its hulking 2.9-slot design and triple-fan cooler. It’s a behemoth of a card, measuring a good 318mm long. You’ll need a goodsized case to fit this in comfortably, and small system builders will want to take a hard pass on this.

Compared to the previous generation, ASUS has beefed-up its design with more metal around its fans, a new fan rotation scheme, and an even larger heatsink with more fins to soak up all the heat the card is going to put out. The PCB has been tweaked too, as has the backplate.

CONCLUSION

WITH KILLER LOOKS, STRATOSPHERIC PERFORMANCE, AND SOLID THERMALS, ASUS HAS YET ANOTHER WINNER.
