Palit Gaming Pro OC RTX 2080 Graphics Card Review

A Closer Look
The card is very nicely designed, and while it’s not as “extreme” a design as some gaming cards, I kinda like that. Not everyone wants an over the top look, and this is simple, clean and stylish. If I could change anything, it would not have that side section in red though. It has an RGB strip there and it’ll only clash otherwise. However, it’s still a nice looking card.
I think the big party trick of this card is the form factor. It’s one of the few RTX cards from a partner brand that actually sticks to a two-slot design, and is no wider than the expansion bracket. For those with slimmer PC cases, this will certainly appeal.
The revest of the card has a huge backplate, again nothing too fancy, but stylish and it adds to the strength and cooling capabilities of the card.
There are four huge heat pipes running through the card. Combined with the two large fans, these should provide plenty of cooling performance for this powerful GPU.
The rear panel has the usual RTX layout, with three DP, one HDMI and a USB Type-C connection. More than enough here for multi-display systems.
Finally, down the side of the card, you’ll find an 8-pin and 6-pin power connector. That should provide more than enough headroom for some overclocking!
