Gigabyte RTX 2080 Super Gaming OC Review
Peter Donnell / 1 month ago
The RTX 2080 SUPER is here at last. Sure, we’ve already tested the stupidly fast RTX 2070 SUPER, and we loved the boosted performance of the RTX 2060 SUPER too. All those links are on the last page of this review, so check them out afterwards. However, now it’s time for the RTX 2080 series to get a big performance boost. We’ve tested the Founders Edition here, and a few others linked below, but how do the AIB cards stack up? Let’s find out with the Gigabyte RTX 2080 Super Gaming OC!
Gigabyte RTX 2080 Super Gaming OC
Gigabyte is on a winning streak recently. Sure, they’re not pushing the latest innovations when it comes to design. However, by using their well established WindForce cooler designs, which we know work great. They’re able to keep their costs down and pass that onto consumers. Plus, the cooler design has years of testing with consumers, meaning they now give their cards an impressive 4-years warranty! Since this is the Gaming OC, it’s the high-end version of the Gigabyte range. This means you can expect an impressive overclock right out of the box, their triple-fan WindForce 3X cooling system, a full metal backplate and more. That’s compared to the WindForce OC range which would feature a smaller 2-fan cooler and slightly lower clock speeds.
