Gigabyte RTX 3080 Eagle OC


Since this card is already overclocked from start I did not expect a lot of headroom to overclock more. Gigabyte has their own software that works like MSI Afterburner and allows you to do change some settings on the card including the LED color and how the fans should work.

The software also allows you to use the oc-scanner to find the best overclock. I must admit I prefer MSI Afterburner so I downloaded the latest beta instead.

In both software the power limit is set at 100% and cannot be increased. Using the oc scanner MSI Afterburner did find a overclock but deemed it “unstable”. Running the oc scanner in Gigabytes software also created a new “curve” but didn’t say anything about it being unstable. Running the stress test in 3Dmark worked fine so I decided to test some games.

To be honest I do not think it it is worth it. Yes, you gain a few % in performance but I am more interested in under-volting and getting similar performance with less heat and power useage.

Razer Blade 15 Base Edition (2021)

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.
