Based on the Ampere architecture and designed to handle the graphical demands of 4K gaming and high frame rates, the ASUS TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3080 Graphics Card brings the power of real-time ray tracing and AI to your PC games. The GPU features 10GB of GDDR6X VRAM and a 320-bit memory interface, offering improved performance and power efficiency over the previous Turing-based generation.
The front panel of the card features a variety of outputs, such as DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.1. HDMI 2.1 supports up to 48 Gb/s bandwidth and a range of higher resolutions and refresh rates, including 8K @ 60fps, 4K @ 120fps, and even up to 10K. The RTX 3080 is not just about high-resolution gaming. Computationally intensive programs can utilize the GPU's 8704 cores to accelerate tasks using CUDA and other APIs.
For cooling, ASUS implemented a triple axial tech fan cooler. The axial tech fans utilize durable dual ball fan bearings. The two outer fans rotate the same direction but the center fan has a reversed rotation in order to reduce turbulence. There is also a stop mode when the GPU reaches low temperatures. The top-side RGB logo can be customized with Armoury Crate and synced with other ASUS components for uniform lighting.
