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.

2020 will go down as a horrible year for getting hold of new graphics card. I still know people who ordered the new Nvidia Series 30 graphics card at launch in September 2020 and still have not been able to receive it. One avenue to get a new Series 30-card might be to go the laptop route instead as it is much easier to get hold of those. Nvidia recently released their RTX 3060, RTX 3070 and RTX 3080-GPU’s for laptop and today I am testing the Razer Blade 15 Base Edition that comes with a Intel i7-10750H, a 15” 165 Hz QHD-screen and a RTX 3070.
