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, directly from NVIDIA, uses a unique dual-fan cooling layout. It is a great design for keeping a single card running cool and quiet, venting some heat out the back of the computer while circulating the rest upward within the case. We have found in our testing that this makes a dual-card configuration viable, as long as the chassis fans can ramp up to help with cooling, but for more than two GPUs you would need to use models with a blower-style fan and rear heat exhaust instead.

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).
