Pros: 3080!

Cons: Plastic underside, software

Overall Review: So firstly this card runs games great. Im very thrilled with the performance of the games Ive tried it on so far (couple weeks in). I upgraded from a 1080 and can mostly get max frames except for RDR2 on highest settings. (Only game tested that hasnt hit above 120 fps on 1440p). So why the 4 star review? Well two major things knock this down. 1. Software is utterly atrocious. Gigabyte doesnt play nice with asus and icue Corsair software. I cant for whatever reason get the rgb software for gigabyte to load, online forums say to uninstall asus or Corsair software or roll back gpu driver to get it to function, but my build was built around Corsair rgb so it would be dumb to uninstall that and asus updates through their software is nice especially for mobo. So what does that mean for users? Well the lcd screen on the card cannot be changed from the chibi egg basically. I wanted the card temp to display, but cant change it since the software wont load correctly. Thankfully the temp monitor on the software does work and the highest the card hits is 70-73 Celsius. Which sounds hot, but gpu fans tend to kick on around that temp, my 1080 did that temp also, so not a concern. Many games it sits at 45C. 2. The plastic cover on the bottom next to the fans with the fancy little line decor was hanging off yesterday when I played. I pressed it back up and its holding, but cosmetically, probably would annoy people. Im more about functionality but still a con. All in all the card works as expected, Im satisfied. I got this through Newegg shuffle and honestly surprised I got it to begin with. I prefer evga products and this is my first gigabyte card. The 4 year warranty is nice and lights for power issues is also a plus granted I havent had to see them light up since my psu is a 1000 watt one. Piece of mind tho. If you can get this card, I think youd be happy with it assuming you desire a 3080
