NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is a high-end 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. This model offers 3D performance very close to the level of the top-end RTX 3090, but with half the onboard memory (12GB instead of 24GB). That makes it an excellent choice for applications where extreme graphics performance is required, but massive amounts of VRAM are not necessary.

This variant uses a multi-fan cooling layout. This is okay for keeping a single card cooled adequately, 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 different video card 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).
