ASUS reveals the pricing and specifications of it TUF Gaming RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 graphics cards

ASUS has just confirmed to us the UK pricing of its TUF Gaming RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 series graphics cards, ensuring that they will match Nvidia’s MSRP pricing. However, their TUF Gaming OC versions will ship with higher price tags due to their higher stock clock speeds. 

In addition to matching Nvidia’s pricing, ASUS has also confirmed that their RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 graphics cards will also feature an OC mode which will deliver gamers a minor boost in clock speeds. ASUS also confirmed that their RTX 3080 would feature 19.5 Gbps GDDR6X memory, seemingly surpassing Nvidia’s Founders Edition model.  

For Nvidia’s flagship RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 models, ASUS’ TUF Gaming design will act as the company’s entry-level offering. Given the power requirements of Ampere, triple-fan cooling is a must for the series. With the RTX 30 series, Nvidia has seemingly killed off the blower-fan coolers of old, in favour of larger, quieter designs.

At this time it is unknown how much ASUS’ TUF Gaming OC variants will cost, or how large their factory overclocks will be. Below is a comparison of the specifications of Nvidia’s Founders Edition RTX 3090/3090 and their ASUS TUG Gaming counterparts. The MSRP pricing of ASUS’ TUF Gaming and Nvidia’s Founders Edition models will be identical.
