Overall, ASUS GeForce RTX 3080 TUF Gaming is one of the better cards available in the market, it offers a much better cooler in return, and a small overclock out of the box. The build quality and cooling performance were very impressive making it very easy to recommend and we are giving it our Editor’s Choice Award.
The ASUS GeForce RTX 3080 TUF Gaming OC Edition graphics card is a great quality build graphics card and is a significantly overall better graphics card than Nvidia Founders Edition. Offering out of the box boost clock of 1785MHz than the 1710MHz reference board clock. With ASUS’s thermal solution the card provides excellent thermal and acoustic performance along with a choice of Performance and Quiet BIOS options. The card also offers output to two separate HDMI 2.1 ports.
"The Asus GeForce RTX 3080 TUF Gaming OC is a large card with plenty of cooling, putting up similar performance numbers to the 3080 FE at a higher price — but with a bit of RGB bling and even better cooling."
ASUS has impressed me greatly with the TUF Gaming RTX 3080.
I'd be surprised if this didn’t turn out to be one of the most popular cards this launch, not just for ASUS, but overall.
After playing games in 4k resolution for 40-50 mins the GPU was idling around 60-62 degrees and the max it reached was 66 degrees. ASUS has done a great job with the cooling on this card. It offers crazy horsepower and consistent 4k 60 fps gaming at max graphics.
Custom Nvidia RTX 3080 Graphics Cards have landed, and this is probably the one to buy!
I still can't figure out why you'd buy anything other than this.

This TUF RTX 3080 from ASUS is a very good custom card [...] it is an excellent card that will let you play at 4K very comfortably...
Both the construction and the finish are top notch as per usual.
... then this card should definitely be at the top of your list.
ASUS delivers the best package because of the extra BIOS, the extra connections for fans and the build quality and finish.
The Asus TUF Gaming RTX 3080 OC is a great alternative to the Nvidia’s Founder Edition card. Its stock performance is already better than the Nvidia Founder’s Edition, and while the OC FPS isn’t really noticeable, it’s nice to have the option to Overclock. It’s cool and quiet, and is a great choice if you want a GPU that you can just throw into your PC and forget about it, and not worry about performance.
