On September 2nd, NVIDIA CEO Huang Renxun once again released the 30-series graphics card in his kitchen . “The biggest performance leap in history” and “The price remains unchanged compared to the 20-series” became the two words that came into the minds of players most. At a time, the price of a thousand graphics cards has also become the target of berserk, and there has been a phenomenon of “universal card replacement”. And as the user group gets younger and younger, everyone’s requirements for graphics cards are not only the improvement in performance, and the diversified appearance design can show the unique style. Recently, Xing Kai, the first MOD in the United Nations, has created a “Apocalypse” MOD console with the theme of the two-dimensional style. The X-GAMING series under its umbrella has also undergone a comprehensive upgrade and revision.
On September 28th, we brought this “Apocalypse” MOD host and Zotac RTX 3080 X-GAMING OC graphics card to visit the celebrity player NV in the circle.
The theme of our current issue is “Pink Hardware · Amateur Dress Up Challenge On-site Installation”. In addition to the introduction and comments on the graphics card, we will also ask the young lady to install on-site.
ZOTAC has redesigned the appearance of the RTX 3080 X-GAMING OC graphics card, with a contrasting powder and blue color matching, which is more youthful and vigorous, in line with the current young people’s trendy culture. And this feeling of fashion trend is also more matched with the theme of our young lady in this issue.
Of course, the installation process was not smooth. Although it was just a bare platform, for the young lady who experienced installation for the first time, it was naturally a little messy. Since the graphics card that our platform is equipped with is Zotac RTX 3080 X-GAMING OC, the new 30 series graphics card has a great improvement in performance, and it needs more powerful CPU to work together, so we chose 3900XT and X570 Chipset motherboard.
In addition, for players who are beginners to install, they often wonder what radiator is better for high-performance CPUs. Can air cooling be suppressed? Will water-cooling leak? In fact, for CPUs such as 3900XT or 10900K, air-cooling is a bit reluctant. If the chassis has the conditions, it is recommended to adopt an integrated water-cooling solution. If you are worried about liquid leakage, you can choose a brand with liquid leakage compensation.
In terms of power supply, as the performance of the 30 series graphics card increases, the power consumption will naturally increase accordingly. We chose a 750W power supply, which is currently the standard configuration of the 30 series graphics card recommended by NVIDIA’s official website. For players who want to upgrade 30 series graphics cards, they also need to pay attention to whether the existing configuration can support the new 30 series graphics cards.
The process was not smooth, but after some adjustments, Zotac RTX 3080 X-GAMING OC was finally plugged in, and the platform was finally lit up. It seems that Miss Sister still has some practical ability. We first chose the PortRoyal ray tracing test in 3DMARK . The second-generation RT Core has a very significant effect on the enhancement of real-time ray tracing performance. From the test results, the score of Zotac GeForce RTX 3080 10G6X Apocalypse OC graphics card compared to RTX 2080 It’s increased by about 79%, and it’s still very powerful.
With the release of the 30 series graphics cards, Zotac has positioned the X-GAMING series to show more youthful vitality and conform to the current trendy culture of young people. In addition to the Zotac RTX 3080 X-GAMING OC used in our live broadcast, there will be more VirtuaReal customized models in the follow-up.
