ASUS TUF Gaming RTX 3080 Ampere Graphics Card
A TUF PIECE OF KIT
Prepare yourself for an unforgettable gaming experience with the ASUS TUF GAMING RTX 3080 Gaming GPU, powered by the groundbreaking NVIDIA Ampere Architecture boasting 2nd generation RT cores and 3rd generation tensors with breathtaking improvements to graphical performance. The TUF Gaming GeForce RTX™ 3080 has been stripped down and built back up to provide more robust power and cooling. A new all-metal shroud houses three powerful axial-tech fans that utilise durable dual ball fan bearings. New optimised fan rotation reduces turbulence and a new stop mode brings the three fans to a halt at lower temperatures. TUF have also included their Axial-Fan Technology, Auto-Extreme Technology, a new GPU bracket, and a backplate vent make the TUF RTX 3080 a proper powerhouse. For builders looking for a new “old faithful”, this card has your back.

Axial-Tech Fan Upgrades
DUAL BALL BEARING FANS
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 new 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.
Keep Cool - Sub 55° GPU Temperatures
EACH FAN HAS ITS OWN ROLE
The fans for the TUF 30 Series GPUs have been smartly tuned with a reversed rotation for the center fan, which reduces the overall air turbulence and allows Fan-Stop mode to kick in when temps fall below 55° increasing the longevity of your card and its components but also giving you unprecedented performance with less noise and minimal distraction.
Maximum Contact for Maximum Cooling
POLISHED FOR MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE
In order to ensure maximum benefit from the upgraded axial-fan design ASUS have incorporated a new manufacturing process that polishes the surface of the heat-spreader down to a microscopic level. The even surface allows for maximum contact with the die and improved thermal transfer.
Bigger Heatsink to Provide Better Cooling
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 feature a dedicated heatsink for VRAM to keep temperatures well under maximum operating specs.
Updated Shroud Design is Both Functional and Beautiful
NOT JUST A PRETTY FACE
The TUF 30 series graphics cards boast an all-aluminium no nonsense industrial designed shroud with a greyscale colourway that will allow the GPU to easily fit into any setup without drawing too much attention. The topside RGB element can be customised via ASUS 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.

DirectX Raytracing Allows Incredibly Realistic Graphic Effects
DIRECTX 12 ULTIMATE OFFERS FEATURES LIKE RAY TRACING AND VARIABLE RATE SHADING
DirectX Raytracing allows games to simulate how light works in real life, providing incredibly realistic and beautiful graphics effects like global illumination, reflections, and shadows.
NVIDIA has partnered closely with Microsoft to enable full DXR support on GeForce GPUs. GeForce RTX GPUs were designed from the start for the extreme demands of ray-tracing workloads. Specialised RT cores, found only on GeForce RTX graphics cards, provide billions of rays per second of performance, and up to 3X the frame rates with DXR games and applications. This makes ray tracing at real-time frame rates possible for the first time.
