The metal backplate is more for show than performance, as it touches nothing of genuine note on the rear of the PCB. Unlike most competitors, the PCB extends the entire length of the card – others leave a large section bare on the left-hand side for through-the-board cooling – but we see no downside to this as the upper heatsink is, as you will see, capable of dealing with the higher wattage produced by the RTX 3080.

COLORFUL iGame GeForce RTX 3080 Vulcan OC

The GeForce RTX 3080 “Ampere” is NVIDIA’s latest flagship graphics card despite the fact that it sells the slightly faster RTX 3090 under the same GeForce brand. This is because the RTX 3080 is designed to provide 4K Ultra HD AAA gaming with RTX enabled, while the RTX 3090 with its 24 GB of memory provides more of an uplift over the RTX 3080 to creators than gamers.
