Gigabyte RTX 3080 Eagle OC

When Nvidia release the RTX2080/2080 Ti in September 2018 it delivered cards that were a bit faster than the cards of the previous generation while more expensive. Our reviewer at that time felt that the added new features still made the cards worth a high mark although there were a lot of opposition to this from readers. With cards like the RTX2080 Super, the RTX2070 Super, the RTX 2070 and RTX 2060 Nvidia did manage to improve the value of the RTX-series and offer great cards at all price points.

I think a lot of people expected Nvidia to pull something similar off with the RTX30 -series but so far what we’ve got is far more appealing. Today I am reviewing the Gigabyte RTX 3080 Eagle OC. As the name implies this is a factory overclocked RTX3080 that also comes with  the Windforce E 3X Cooling System with alternate spinning fans.

Gigabyte has a no less than 6 different RTX3080-models and this is one of the “cheapest” at $699 (although that will go up a bit after a period as this is a initial offering during launch) – same as the Nvidia RTX3080 FE.

The Steam Deck – Valve delivers an excellent PC handheld

Valve is an interesting company that seems to try to be a lot of things at the same time. Games company, software hub/store and hardware company. Valve is all of these. When it comes to hardware the company has had mixed success. I think many of us remember the Steam Machines. These compact computers running SteamOS, a Linux based OS, were supposed to make Windows PC’s obsolete for gaming. They didn’t succeed. Valve also released a specific controller, the Steam Controller, which also did not exactly set the world on fire. In hindsight though both these products have paved the way for the product I am testing today, the Steam Deck, Valves attempt to compete with the Nintendo Switch in the handheld market.
