Asus TUF OC vs STRIX OC 3080

Me neither I got a gsync monitor so amd is out of questions....but they look bloody good this generation around.

AMD GPU has always been plagued with drivers problems since they were ATI. Unless they get a clean slate for a couple of generations, I will never go AMD for 50 bucks difference, although I am using AMD CPU now.

Once they are back in stock I want to know which 3080 to get. The strix has high boost better cooling but also a $100 higher price I mainly want to know if it’s worth the extra cost. I’m currently upgrading from an MSI rtx 2080 gaming x trio. What other benefits does the Strix provide over the TUF or should I just save that $100 and go for the TUF. I really just want the best performance card without breaking the bank.

Traditionally OC cards produce a great deal of heat for their speed boost.  I suspect the more expensive one will have more cooler on it.  For USD$100 though you could do hybrid water on the cheaper card.  The question is what is the differences between the two pcbs?

I think by the time they are back in stock you might want an AMD card..

I think it’s mostly to do with power draw from the bios. The strix I don’t think has a power limit which is super nice

That would sort of be a pcb difference.  No limit means some people are going to burn them out though.   I was thinking more of better components.  Like that “which chips are on the back” thing.  That applies to the whole pcb, not just That one little square. The general rule is the cheapass cards have better bang/buck, because whatever company designed them already optimized them. This would be Nvidia or AMD in this case.  It gets squishy as one approaches the top end though, because there isn’t a higher class gpu chip to get and all that can be done is hotrod the one that is there.

Yeah bang/buck is really important in most cases as a $100 more card will only offer a slight difference but for me someone who overclocks and wants to get the most without buying a 3090 I think strix is probably the better option we will see how the prices hold up in January when I actually buy it

3080 and 3090 are both ga102.  A 3090 basically IS a 3080, but with less bits cut off at the factory.
