EVGA RTX 3080 FTW3 Ultra Review: Thermals, Overclocking, Noise, Power, & XOC Records

8 Просмотры
This review benchmarks the EVGA RTX 3080 FTW3 Ultra Gaming video card, using NVIDIA's Ampere silicon. We've tested the 3080 FTW3 with all 3 VBIOSes, including the XOC VBIOS, for overclocking, thermals, and noise.

The EVGA RTX 3080 FTW3 Ultra Gaming goes up against previous cards we've tested, as we begin to slowly compile a list of the best and worst 3080s. So far, we haven't had any that land in "objectively bad" camp -- but there's time yet. We now have the EVGA RTX 3080 FTW3 Ultra, the ASUS TUF OC, Gigabyte Eagle, and Founders Edition, and we have a few more to work through in between the other reviews. In this review, we're focusing entirely on thermals, noise, noise-normalized thermals, power-normalized thermals, power, and overclocking, with no focus on gaming. The gaming results are roughly the same as in our RTX 3080 review, plus a couple FPS here and there. It's the quality of life and OC features that really matter for these.

The EVGA RTX 3080 FTW3 Ultra will eventually be on Amazon here:
ASUS RTX 3080 TUF OC will eventually be on Amazon here:
The Gigabyte Eagle will eventually be on Amazon here:
