The TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3080 has been stripped down and built back up to provide more robust power and cooling. An all-metal shroud houses three powerful axial-tech fans that utilize durable dual ball fan bearings. Fan rotation has been optimized for reduced turbulence, and a stop mode brings all three fans to a halt at low temps. Beneath, independent heatsinks for the GPU and memory keep thermals under tight control. Additional features, including TUF components, Auto-Extreme Technology, a GPU bracket, and a backplate vent make the TUF a proper powerhouse.
- 2nd generation RT cores: Experience 2x the throughput of 1st gen RT cores, plus concurrent RT and shading for an advanced level of ray tracing performance
- 3rd generation tensor cores: Get up to 2x the throughput with structural sparsity and advanced AI algorithms such as DLSS
- Axial-tech fan design has been newly tuned with a reversed central fan direction for less turbulence
- Dual ball fan bearings can last up to twice as long as sleeve bearing designs
- GPU Tweak II provides intuitive performance tweaking, thermal controls, and system monitoring
- Axial-tech upgrades
TUF Gaming cards leverage the tried-and-true Axial-tech fan design, with three fans working in tandem to satisfy the thermal demands of NVIDIA's high-octane design. The fans rely on dual ball fan bearings to ensure consistent performance and increased longevity compared to sleeve bearings and other bearing types.
- Smartly tuned fans
The fans have been smartly tuned with a reversed rotation for the center fan, which reduces turbulence, and with a fan-stop mode that kicks in when the GPU temp falls below 55 degrees.
To get heat into the heatsink array efficiently, so that it can be whisked away by the powerful axial-tech fans, ASUS uses a manufacturing process that improves the surface smoothness of the heatspreader at the microscopic level. The extra flatness allows for better contact with the die for improved thermal transfer.
- 2.7-slot design
The heat spreader draws heat up into heatpipes that carry it through a fin stack that fills most of the card's large, 2.7-slot footprint. This generation of TUF Gaming graphics cards also features a dedicated heatsink for VRAM to keep temperatures well under maximum operating specs.
- Fresh shroud
An all-aluminum shroud adds robust protection to TUF Gaming graphics cards and a no-nonsense industrial design and grayscale colorway fits into any build with ease.
- Functional front
The top-side RGB element can be customized with Armory Crate and synced with other ASUS components to enable uniform lighting. To fulfill the power demands of the GeForce RTX 3080, two 8-pin power connectors are present, along with an onboard circuit that monitors PSU rail voltage. The circuit is fast enough to catch any transients that result in the rail voltage dropping too low. If that happens, a red LED will light up so you know the power supply wasn't able to keep up with the GPU's power draw.
