The TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3080 OC features a new-generation triple Axial-Tech fan cooler with a matt grey and black metal shroud with TUF military theme. The cooler is longer than the PCB underneath. Much like NVIDIA’s Dual Axial Flow-Through cooling solution on the Founders Edition card, ASUS used the extra length of the cooler to vent air through the card.

Display connectivity options include three standard DisplayPort 1.4a and two HDMI 2.1. Interestingly, the USB-C port for VR headsets, which NVIDIA introduced on Turing Founders Editions, has been removed, guess it didn’t take off as planned.
