Excellent build quality and a very competent cooling solution that keeps the card both quieter and cooler than most other models. A nice plus is that the card comes with two selectable bios versions (quiet and performance), especially for those who want the opportunity to safely update / flash bios. Regarding factory overclocking, it can be good to keep in mind that most RTX 3080 cards should be able to achieve basically the same performance as this with the help of manual overclocking. Anyone who wants to save a few hundred bucks, but get the same nice cards basically can, however, advantageously choose the standard version of this model. Can add that I bought the card at the introductory price (SEK 7,990), which made it feel relatively affordable. Had I planned to buy a 3080 now, however, I would have wondered if I might have managed with one of the slightly "simpler" models that will probably be released in the coming months. In terms of performance, these do not differ much from this and other, even more lavish models, such as the ASUS ROG STRIX. For those who are not interested in extreme overclocking or are very happy with sound levels or card temperature, it will probably be possible to save a penny without getting a worse gaming experience.

Have now had this card for about a week and are very satisfied. The card gives the impression of being very well-built and comes with the market's highest factory overclock. Unlike how the card behaves in the reference design are also boosting the frequency all the time in the game, which gives her a hefty performance boost compared to the reference card. I have a fairly well-ventilated chassis, which keeps the card's temperature target (75 C) very well, but I understand the fans as disturbing. In all situations, except in games is still the fans and the card is completely silent. My card is also completely free from spooltjut / coil whine. My copy has also been relatively good overclocking potential by clocking with AMD Wattman. Without increasing the tension, but with maximum current budget, it is stable at 1390 MHz and is the frequency where the constant. Overall, I can absolutely recommend the card. Especially for those planning to play in the resolution of 1080 x 1920. It also thinking of buying new screen should, however, keep in mind that the card, all of graphics cards from AMD, makes itself at its best when it is combined with a scare with freesync. The card does not get 10 stars from me is only because the price so far is somewhat high in relation to many comparable cards. Most people who are considering this card is enough for example to cope well with the 4 GB version, which in the current situation costs 600 crowns less.

Very quiet and cool card, with good margins for overclocking. Details such as the back plate of metal provides quality feel. The only negative that can be said about the card is that many seem to suffer from coilwine. Have yourself not experienced this.
