Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER Gaming OC Thermal Tests

No graphics card review is complete without evaluating its temperatures and thermal load. The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Gaming OC series is fitted with the most advanced version of the Windforce cooling design. The latest Windforce 3X cooler features a massive heatsink with multiple heat pipes which extend beyond the aluminum fin-based design that lead towards the incredibly dense heatsink block. The card comes with PWM cooling and an anti-bending plate that keeps the card sturdy and durable in the harshest environments inside your PC.
