NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3080 is the first consumer 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. The performance increase this video card brings varies greatly depending on workflow, with the biggest improvements coming in areas like 3D rendering, video editing, and game engines. Compared to the previous 20 Series models, the RTX 3080 can be up to twice as fast in some applications - but not every program or game will see that much gain.

This variant from EVGA uses a multi-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, video cards 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).

Please note that this is a "lite hash rate" variant. That simply means that it has artificial limits in place which reduce its effectiveness in mining some cryptocurrencies, but this does not affect performance in normal applications. NVIDIA is updating a lot of their video cards with this sort of limit in an effort to reduce their appeal to crypto miners and thus - hopefully - increase availability for consumers.
