NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3080 12GB is an updated graphics card based on the Ampere architecture, which in turn is the second generation of NVIDIA GPUs to offer hardware raytracing and other advanced features under their RTX branding. Compared to the original RTX 3080, this model has an additional 2GB of onboard memory (12 vs 10GB total) and slightly improved performance - though not enough to bring it up to the level of the more expensive RTX 3080 Ti.

This variant from Asus uses a triple-fan cooling layout. It is great for keeping a single card running cool and quiet, but results in most of the heat the card generates being pumped back into the computer. That makes these a poor choice for use in multi-GPU systems. In those cases, a model with a blower-style fan and rear heat exhaust would be much better.

Finally, in regards to connectivity, there are one HDMI 2.1 and three DisplayPort 1.4a plugs supporting a total of up to four displays at a maximum resolution of 7680x4320 (8K).
