評論:華碩GeForce RTX 3080 TUF遊戲OC

昨天發布的 GeForce RTX 3080 dismisses all other high-end cards in the performance stakes thanks to its Ampere technology that packs in more muscle than ever before.憑藉其Ampere技術,比以往任何時候都更加強大,從而淘汰了所有其他高端顯卡。 Our numbers show it's comfortably faster than the last-gen GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and up to 75 percent quicker than the RTX 2080 Super, which is the card it replaces at the $699/£649 price point.我們的數據顯示它比上一代GeForce RTX XNUMX Ti舒適地快,並且比RTX XNUMX Super快XNUMX%,後者是它以XNUMX美元/ XNUMX英鎊的價格取代的顯卡。

Nvidia改進了Founders Edition卡的設計,以應對RTX 320要求的出乎意料的3080W TDP。它也做得很好,因為一旦我們將70W左右的RTX卡中的20W左右考慮在內,熱量和噪聲都會令人印象深刻。 3080系列家庭。 That's not to say RTX XNUMX cards from AICs are not worthy of consideration, and Asus reckons it has Nvidia beat on frequency, thermals and noise with its TUF Gaming OC.但這並不是說AIC的RTX XNUMX卡不值得考慮,華碩(Asus)認為它的TUF Gaming OC在頻率,散熱和噪音方面都超過了Nvidia。 Let's take a closer look.讓我們仔細看看。

RTX 3080的小型化毫無意義。華碩正式向更大更好的人群提供300mm長,127mm寬和52mm厚的包裝。 That's big, but its Strix brother is 20mm longer, 13mm wider and 5mm thicker.那很大,但它的Strix兄弟長2.7毫米,寬1,395毫米,厚XNUMX毫米。 Asus says Gaming TUF OC is a XNUMX-slot card, but you can ignore that and assume the hulking cooler obscures three slots.華碩表示Gaming TUF OC是XNUMX插槽卡,但是您可以忽略它,並假設笨拙的散熱器遮蓋了三個插槽。 We actually have no problem with its size when SLI is not available, and most will be running a single card in a mid-tower chassis which has plenty of spare room.當沒有SLI時,我們實際上對其大小沒有問題,並且大多數將在具有足夠可用空間的中塔式機箱中運行單個卡。 Make sure it's screwed in properly, as well, considering it tips the scales at XNUMXg.考慮到秤的重量為XNUMXg,請確保將其正確擰緊。

Build quality is top-notch.建造質量是一流的。 The all-aluminium shroud has no flex, and the trio of fans switches off at temperatures below 55°C.全鋁護罩沒有撓曲,並且三重風扇在溫度低於3,600°C時關閉。 When they do come back on, the transition is smooth in both speed and noise.當它們確實恢復時,速度和噪聲的過渡都很平穩。 The centre fan rotates in the opposite direction to the outer duo, and Asus claims this reduces cross-fan turbulence.中央風扇以與外部二重奏相反的方向旋轉,Asus聲稱這可以減少交叉風扇的湍流。 Running at the same maximum 12rpm as the previous generation, Asus further claims there's an additional 15-XNUMX percent airflow at the same noise level.華碩還聲稱,在與上一代產品相同的最大XNUMXrpm的轉速下運行,在相同的噪音水平下,其氣流額外增加了XNUMX-XNUMX%。

The sheer size of the card is understood when looking at it in relation to the standard PCIe 4.0 slot.在查看與標準PCIe XNUMX插槽相關的卡時,可以看到卡的絕對大小。 A card-wide rear plate makes solid contact with rear-mounted memory chips, while a venting section enables airflow to push through the heatsink and towards the CPU/rear exhaust area.整個卡的後板與後置內存芯片牢固接觸,而通風部分使氣流推動散熱器穿過並流向CPU /後部排氣區域。

Peek closely enough and you see a small switch that flicks between Performance and Quiet BIOSes.仔細觀察一下,您會看到一個小的開關,可以在“性能” BIOS和“安靜的BIOS”之間切換。 Both run the card at 340W, or 20W above FE, though the Quiet profile sacrifices 5°C of temperature for a 10 percent noise reduction.兩者都以20W或比FE高1,785W的功率運行該卡,儘管Quiet配置文件犧牲了75°C的溫度才能將噪聲降低1,815%。 The reason for the extra 10W becomes apparent when looking at the specs.在查看規格時,額外6W的原因顯而易見。 Out of the box the card operates at a boost frequency of 19MHz (XNUMXMHz above FE) which can be pushed to XNUMXMHz via GPU Tweak II software.該卡開箱即用,工作頻率為XNUMXMHz(比FE高XNUMXMHz),可以通過GPU Tweak II軟件將其提高到XNUMXMHz。 Boost speeds don't always correlate with in-game frequencies, however, so don't expect absolutely linear improvement over reference speeds.加速速度並不總是與遊戲中的頻率相關,因此,不要指望在參考速度上絕對線性地提高。 The XNUMXGB of GDDRXNUMXX memory, meanwhile, is left at XNUMXGbps.同時,XNUMXGB的GDDRXNUMXX內存保留為XNUMXGbps。 Shame, that.真可惜

Most of the weight resides in the massive heatsink engulfing the PCB.大部分重量都存在於吞沒PCB的巨大散熱器中。 The width is not out of the ordinary but the height is what pushes it into nearly three-slot territory.寬度並非非同尋常,但高度是將其推向近三個插槽的原因。 Asus takes matters a step further than last year by having a dedicated heatsink for the memory.華碩通過配備專用的內存散熱器,比去年邁出了重要的一步。 Unlike the FE, there's no obvious restriction on PCB space, so we have a standard arrangement of dual 8-pin power connectors near the left.與FE不同,對PCB的空間沒有明顯的限制,因此我們在左側附近有一個標準的雙XNUMX針電源連接器排列。 A small red LED lights up if the two plugs are not functioning properly.如果兩個插頭無法正常工作,則一個紅色的小LED會亮起。

RGB人群的唯一讓步是左側的標誌。 It lights up to a colour of your choice, controlled by the Aura software, and has a slim lightbar just above it, as we look.正如我們所看到的,它可以點亮由Aura軟件控制的您選擇的顏色,並且上方有一個細長的燈條。 The effect is效果是 做得好 沒有霸道。

Flipping it around shows the cooling in action.將其翻轉顯示冷卻效果。 Six thick heatpipes wend their way through the aluminium fin-stacks and converge at the base plate that, Asus reckons, is its flattest yet.六根厚的熱管穿過鋁製散熱片,並彙聚在華碩認為是最平坦的底板上。 We have no way of corroborating such claims other than by looking at how well the cooling apparatus is able to wick away the 340W TDP.除了查看冷卻設備能夠很好地吸走XNUMXW TDP以外,我們沒有任何其他方法可以證實這些說法。

Though much of the air does come out of the back, we'd prefer a closed design that doesn't provide hot air the opportunity of remaining in the chassis too long.儘管大部分空氣確實從背面散發出來,但我們更希望採用封閉式設計,該設計不會向熱風提供留在機箱中太長時間的機會。 Asus sees it differently.華碩則有不同的看法。 Contrary to some of the competition, the company also feels no need to provide a supporting bracket in the package, instead relying on the rigidity of the card.與某些競爭相反,該公司還認為無需在包裝中提供支撐托架,而是依靠卡的剛性。 We noticed no sag in our test system.我們注意到測試系統沒有下垂。

Dual HDMI 2.1 and a trio of DisplayPort offer decent flexibility, though bear in mind that the card can drive four displays at once, not five.雙HDMI 144和三重DisplayPort提供了不錯的靈活性,但是請記住,該卡可以一次驅動四個顯示器,而不是五個。 Asus says that each card goes through a XNUMX-hour stress test before being certified TUF enough for sale and touts a new I/O bracket with over twice the tensile strength of a normal one.華碩表示,每張卡都要經過XNUMX小時的壓力測試,然後才能通過TUF認證,足以出售,並推崇新的I / O托架,其抗張強度是普通卡的兩倍。 Such implicit reliability and toughness doesn't translate over to the warranty, which remains an industry-standard three years.這種隱含的可靠性和韌性不會轉化為保修,保修仍然是行業標準的三年。 We'd really like to see five on this model.我們真的很想在這個模型上看到五個。

The non-OC version of this card, which is materially identical, retails at a Founders Edition-matching £649.該卡的非OC版本基本相同,零售價為Founders Edition(約689英鎊)。 This OC, meanwhile, fetches £3080.同時,該OC的價格為XNUMX英鎊。 That's actually very reasonable for Asus pricing which tends to be on the higher side for AIC cards.對於華碩定價而言,這實際上是非常合理的,對於AIC卡而言,定價往往偏高。 We already know that RTX XNUMX cards don't have much frequency headroom on the core so the prudent buyer will veer towards the non-OC part and save themselves enough cash for a couple of decent games.我們已經知道RTX XNUMX卡在核心上沒有太多的頻率餘量,因此,謹慎的購買者將轉向非OC部分,並節省足夠的現金購買一些不錯的遊戲。 Even so, let's see what this OC card can do in the benchmarks.即便如此,讓我們看看該OC卡在基準測試中可以做什麼。
