What customers say about "Features"
Zotac GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Twin Fan 11GB Graphics Card
  • Cooling was great and sits at high 60s/low 70s.
  • Simply the fastest 2080 ti available to date. Beats all other cards in benchmarks.
  • No issues for me with overheating etc. The fans a quiet and card is cool.
  • Approx 70 c with good cooling in the housing and room temp 20 °C.
  • These cards in SLI run hot at 87c then clocks down to 1200MHz which is well below the base 1350MHz.
MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Ti GAMING X TRIO Graphics Card '11GB GDDR6
  • The jump in performance alone from 1080ti to 2080ti was worth the cost outlay but I'm very impressed with the RTX graphics improvements.
  • It runs insanely cool. I have yet to see this card go above 65c and it's pretty quiet doing it too!
  • The cards cooling is what sets it apart from the others, at NO point playing BfV or CODMW at max ultra 4k settings did the temp go over 74c.
  • Temps range from min 30 to max 80 depending on constant load but ensure airflow is consistent enough.
  • The fans do get very loud under load but this is to be expected from the raw performance.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Zotac GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Twin Fan 11GB Graphics Card
  • USB Type-C connexion will enable future Virtual Reality experiences to be easier to set up.
  • One USB Type-C port that is used for VR applications.
  • Video outputs include three DisplayPort 1.4, one HDMI 2.0b, and one USB Type-C which is fairly good.
  • Since there are 2 6-pin power connectors, you might want to get a Power Supply Unit that have those connectors else you wont be able power it.
  • When installed in a tower with a motherboard with an unreinforced PCIe slot, this will pull down slightly.
MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Ti GAMING X TRIO Graphics Card '11GB GDDR6

  • The bevy of ports makes the Gaming X Trio ideal for a multi-monitor setup.
  • Tried various different drivers, BIOS, power cables and PCI-E slots, but getting artifacts in games.
