Got my Gigabyte RTX 3080 Gaming OC yesterday. All I can say is that I was lucky, my pre-order got stuck during checkout back on september 17th, but I was in a line they said, the store where I bought it from managed somehow to get me a card and I got it yesterday, I live in Norway btw. The card is pretty damn cool, allthough the fan speed which can get to 70 % audiable and I couldn't put a custom fan profile with MSI afterburner. Not sure why. I dont know if Gigabyte has any similar software. But at 55-60% fan you cant hear the card and it stays at 60-68 degrees C on full load at 4K gaming. On 1440p the card is litterally cool as 48 degrees C. 4K is a different game and pushes the card between 60-68 degrees C. The cooler is massive and does a great job, but the sound of the fan at 70+ % is IMO a little loud. But man.. The performance is sick, all games I have tested in 4K ran at least on 60fps everything maxed out. I locked it using Vsync at 60fps which I normally do until I get my hands on a OLED CX TV/MONITOR which does support G-Sync, HDMI 2.1 and 120Hz at 4K to eliminate tearing and lower the input lag. This is running with my old 4790K@4.8Ghz on all 4 cores. But this test is with HAGS enabled. There appears to be some stutter in some games which drops to 57-60 fps, it is not constant stutter just randomly. I guess its either because of my cpu is on the limit to keep and give steady frames or due to HAGS enabled or just poorly optimized game like HZD, Marvels Avengers. But as I told you in a another thread I will upgrade to AMD 5000 series as soon as they release. I only upgrade my whole PC once every 5 years or so. So I excpect alot better performance after that. I can tell you the card is literally twice as fast as my previous MSI 1080TI. Just sick performance and it goes where I was not able to go before. the magic 4K60fps everything maxed out, so no wonder these cards are in huge demand. But It is also due to the corona virus situation. Many factories are disabled or produce at half the speed or at a lower pace..
