Amazon Prime Day GPU Deal Still Live: The Best EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 for $780

The price of RTX 30 series GPUs has been dropping like a rock the past few months. That’s a very good thing for us the consumers, since the starting price of these GPUs have been way higher than the original intended MSRP. For Amazon Prime Day, the EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 FTW3 Ultra video card has dropped to the lowest price we’ve seen since launch. It has been marked down to $779.99, below its MSRP of $919.99. Amazon has it for almost $100 cheaper than buying it directly from EVGA.

EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 FTW3 Ultra 10GB Video Card

The GeForce RTX 3080 GPU really doesn’t need any introduction. This is the de facto card to get if you plan to run current generation games at 4K, since it’s up to 50% faster than the previous generation RTX 2080 SUPER and doesn’t command the exorbitant price of the RTX 3080 Ti or RTX 3090 ( both of which are a mere 3%-5% faster in real world performance). It has an HDMI 2.1 port for passing through 4K @ 120Hz, which it has the power to drive even in resource hungry games like Elden Ring, Battlefield 2042 or Cyberpunk 2077.

EVGA’s FTW3 Ultra model comes equipped with a ridiculously large 2.7-slot heatsink with triple fan cooling and a protective metal backplate. This amount of dissipation allows the card to run cooler and quieter than the reference model RTX 3080 FE. This also enables the FTW3 Ultra model to have a modest 1800HZ Boost overclock compared to the stock 1710MHz Boost on the 3080 FE. Lastly and certainly the least important detail, let’s not forget about the RGB lighting. There’s enough there to make this card stand out in both traditional and vertical orientations.
