Most Critical Review

Just okay. Power limited.

Overall Review: It only has two eight pin power connectors compared to others with three. The power is the limiter for this card in addition to the power slider being locked in software. I saw little to no performance gain in FPS when overclocking; only synthetic benchmarks. It is just too overpriced and would never buy MSI again with any of their other products that are readily available. I don't agree with the price markup by them directly. At the end of the day, it is a 3080 at expected performance and is very quiet and cool with temps at 73C max.

Pros: The connections and layout are nice without any spring loaded connections seen on cheaper models. I mainly bought this due to the power rating to make sure that I wouldn't have any issues with my connected speakers and no issues so far.

Cons: The main disappointments are the lack of HDMI 2.1 support and the FM radio interference. With the chip they use even though it was advertised as HDMI 2.1 and I thought there was supposed to be some sort of upgrade program, but I haven't heard anything after registering my product. I hear some sort of FM radio station through my tweeters when nothing is playing. I don't have the antenna hooked up and I've also switched over to a FM station that doesn't have a radio signal (static noise only) and that didn't help. Also, the user interface of the menus is just okay; there is better out there.

Overall Review: Overall, I am disappointed with the cons above and makes me think twice about buying Yamaha in the future.
