MSI Gaming Z Trio or Asus TUF Gaming ?

 Share

I finally decide too buy new GPU but not sure what model choose price is almost same. MSI Gaming Z Trio RTX 3080 12 Gb or Asus TUF Gaming RTX 3080 12 Gb? I look some test in YouTube and looks like TUF offer way better cooling solution average ~10 C° less. Down side that TUF use only 2 x 8 pin power connector that is really strange. RTX 3080 can draw over 300 W and that model use only 2 x 8 pin I'm worry that cable can start melt in long term usage due it technically can deliver only 300 W over 2 x 8 pin. I know that PCI-E slot can deliver extra 75W so is total 375 W but that is really close too delivery limit even at default no OC this card draw average ~340W. I preferer better cooling GPU but not sure if it's really safe run that card and cable not start melt under long term max load ? Btw I have Seasonic PX 850W Platinum PSU.

Wait and get 4000 series.👍

No because is not worth 4080 will be way expensive probably and 4070 still lose vs 3080 or be almost identical performance. Btw 4000 series draw even more power and I don't want this terrible cheapest models like MSI Ventus that have terrible cooling course I have now 2080 Ventus and it burn almost at default clock. I did even undervolt too 850mV at 1800 Mhz and it still can't keep decent temps and no is not case airflow problem or dust. Actually I can get even 3080 Ti MSI Ventus just for 1,3k but no Thanks not this trash cooling solution GPU.

That is fact that it will be more expensive and I'm 99,99% sure that at least 4060 will lose against 4080 and 4070 will be same or just slightly better. Btw Nvidia try push new 12 pin connector there is chance that need even upgrade PSU with RTX 4000 series.
