Daily Deals: ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce RTX 3080 12GB GPU Down to $799

Today there are some new RTX 30 series GPU prices from Amazon and Woot that are rocking the deal world. The ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce RTX 3080 GPU, often considered the best RTX 3080 on the market, is on sale for under $800. If even that isn’t enough, you can pick up an even more powerful RTX 3090 for under $1K.

The Best of the Best: ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce RTX 3080 OC 12GB GPU for $799

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 has the power to drive even in resource hungry games like Elden Ring, Battlefield 2042 or Cyberpunk 2077.

The ASUS ROG STRIX model is considered by many to be the very best RTX 3080 variant on the market. It’s usually hundreds of dollars more than the 3080 FE price. That’s in large part because of the incredible cooling potential of the massive 3-slot heatsink combined with the quietest triple fan cooling you’ll find on any RTX 3080. Despite the low noise levels, the ROG STRIX offers a significantly OC’ed 1890MHz boost clock compared to the stock 1710MHz boost on the 3080 FE. This model also comes with 12GB of GDDR6X VRAM instead of the 10GB of VRAM that comes standard and most other RTX 3080 GPUs.

EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 GPU Starting at $749.99

EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 FTW3 Ultra 10GB Video Card

EVGA’s XC3 Ultra model is a “smaller” dual slot heatsink with triple fan cooling and a protective metal backplate. It has approximately similar dimensions as the 3080 FE, so it can fit in smaller or more restrictive cases. It boasts a modest 1755Hz Boost overclock compared ot the stock 1710MHz Boost on the 3080 FE.

EVGA’s FTW3 Ultra model comes equipped with a ridiculously large triple 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 bit more aggressive 1800MHz Boost overclock. 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.

If you were to purchase this 3090 graphics card purely for gaming, even at this discounted price, I’d say your money would be better spent on one of the RTX 3080 deals above. You’d be saving at least $200 and losing only about 5%-10% in terms of performance. Although the RTX 3090 is indeed a best-in-class gaming card, it’s not really intended for gamers; it’s catered towards professional graphic artists, animators, modelers, software engineers, or data scientists who run render farms, intensive workstation applications like Maya or 3ds Max, or machine learning. The RTX 3090 is the workstation GPU of choice not because of its processing power (which it has in spades), but the amount of VRAM. The RTX 3090 comes with a massive 24GB of GDDRX RAM compared to the RTX 3080’s “paltry” 10GB-12GB. Unfortunately, however, the vast majority of games will not benefit from the increased VRAM, and that’s why it’s not the best purchase for the end gamer.

Adata XPG GAMMIX S70 Blade 1TB PCIe Gen4 x4 M.2 SSD (up to 7400MBps)

The XPG Gammix S70 Blade is the least expensive 1TB PS5 compatible SSD available right now. Just because it’s the cheapest doesn’t mean it’s the slowest. In fact, the S70 is actually one of the fastest SSDs available with transfer rates up to 7,400 MB/s. It’s on par with the likes of the WD Black SN850, the Samsung 980 Pro, or the Seagate Firecude 530. This is a PCIe Gen4 SSD that was pretty much released specifically for PS5 gamers in order to double or triple the storage capacity of their PS5 without limiting the speed. To make this deal even sweeter, it already comes with a very low-profile heatsink.

New Apple AirPods Pro for $179.99

Apple AirPods Pro Noise-Canceling Earbuds

New MagSafe Model

Apple AirPods Pro Noise Canceling earbuds

The current generation Apple AirPods Pro is one of the best sounding “truly wireless” earbuds you’ll find, especially at this price point. “Truly wireless” earbuds have no wires whatsoever; even the earbuds aren’t hardwired to each other. In addition to the excellent sound quality, the AirPods Pro is the only AirPods with active noise canceling technology. That, combined with the inherent nature of in-ear earbuds, means that the AirPods Pro will provide better noise isolation than over-ear headphones like the Bose QuietComfort or the Sony WH1000XM5. If you’re thinking of getting a pair of new AirPods, we highly recommend jumping on this particular model.
