The Gainward GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Phantom Gaming GS is the company's top-dog RTX 3080 Ti custom design. Thanks to a large triple-slot, triple-fan cooler, the card runs at good temperatures; noise levels can be adjusted due to a dual BIOS with "quiet" mode and performance even matches the RTX 3090.

Yes the Strix LC being liquid cooled is obviously going to decimate air cooled versions especially when they are not even the best air cooled versions out there but the price is not the same either ( +300$ for the Strix LC ) . I would like to see the regular air cooled Strix aswell as the TUF in that chart .

Expensive is cheap in the long run.

Does it come with a RGB cable for the non-standard A-RGB header?
Would it be a good idea to review/present box contents for review?

Maybe it has something to do with the ADblock software you are using, there was an announcement about not viewing the pictures because of that on the front page some time ago.

I dont have Adblock on cellphone, apart from missing non-text content I was also getting Error 502 along with server timeout messages for TPU pages earlier in morning. It seems like the issue has been fixed.

While I agree the RT performance is better on Nvidia 30 series cards versus AMD, however, it's just not realistic on either. For the vast majority of games, raytracing leads to the consequence of abysmal FPS, unless DLSS or FSR may be in place. It's like talking about true 4K gaming last or 2 generations of architecture ago.

i was hoping for the RTX3080Ti models to be a more refined versions of an RTX3090 when it comes to power-consumption .
From that perspective i'm somewhat disappointed from RTX3080Ti 's power-draw since it's almost identical to the RTX3090 , and this Gainward model even surpasses those power-draw levels.
We need the newly released GPUs to start dropping a little those power-draw levels , not increase them even further.

Lot's of inexperienced people will surely face problems because their PSUs will prove to be inadequate to properly handle the power-draw from such "monsters".

Hello,
I have one question to W1zzard: What exactly is "gaming load" when you measure VGA temps (and VRAM temps)? Is it Time Spy? Or some specific game? Thank you.
