After several months of waiting, you will finally be able to upgrade your PC. Today, one of the most powerful graphics cards at the moment, a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti model with 12 GB of memory, is for sale on Rue du Commerce.
The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti has been available since mid-January with more memory and a little more computing power. It’s the latest high-end graphics card from Nvidia. Here we use a campaign on a well-known model, MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Gaming X Trio (12 GB). The product is sold and shipped by Rue du Commerce.
Highlights from MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Gaming X Trio (12GB)
The MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Gaming X Trio 12 GB model is available today for 1099.90 euros. Yesterday it was still sold for 1,249.90 euros. With this, you are even entitled to 4 free games on the Nvidia site.
- 4K with maximum graphics
- An efficient cooling system
- A relatively quiet card
- Best value for money in this category
GeForce RTX 3080 Ti 12GB is the fifth graphics card based on the advanced “Gamer Ampere” GA102 GPU. Its great strength is the presence of 12 GB of GDDR6X memory with a 384-bit bus. This capability is important, making the map more scalable.
It’s based on the architecture of the excellent GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, released in June 2021. We could sum it up in a few words: it’s a slightly restrained RTX 3090, which does not say its name. It now allows you to run anything in 4K / 60 FPS without hitting an eyelid. here are some benchmarks.

On control :
There are 10,240 classic calculation units (Cuda Cores), as well as 320 units for AI calculation (Tensor Cores) and 80 units dedicated to beam tracking (RT Cores), in other words, the difference with the GeForce RTX 3090 is not significant. This means you will be able to play under excellent conditions in all definitions, including 4K. You simply will not find a graphics card with better performance at this price.
A good graphics card is a graphics card that is intelligently designed to remove heat while controlling its consumption and the heat generated. Here, MSI used several technologies to get the job done.
There are heating pipes Core pipes, they are located on the GPU to ensure the widest possible contact area and dissipate heat along the entire length of the heat sink. Then comes technology Airflow control. The latter is responsible for improving the circulation of the air flow thanks to deflectors and corrugated fins. Finally, just as important as the two technologies above, the three Torx 4.0 fans help redirect the air.
If you select it, you can activate the RGB LED backlight Mysterious light. The latter is light and elegant, you can customize it from dedicated software. The application is called MSI Center, it also allows you to monitor, change and optimize all parameters in real time and with a few clicks.
Be careful though: this graphics card has a TDP of 350 watts. You need a good diet to maintain it.
In terms of connectors, the back of the card is well equipped: three DisplayPort ports (v1.4a) as well as an HDMI which supports 4K definition at 120 Hz as specified by the HDMI 2.1 standard.
The first implemented technology, DLSS, is the core of Nvidia cards. The idea of super-sampling technology is to reduce the load on your GPU by rendering the original image in a lower definition and then, using artificial intelligence, upscaling the image to give the illusion that it was created in a higher definition. .
Other technology, Nvidia Broadcast also uses the Ampere architecture. This opens the door to cool features like virtual background removal for a digital green screen, noise reduction and voice tracking.
FPS fans can enable Nvidia Reflex and Nvidia Boost in supported games to reduce latency. Finally, for video streaming, the card provides AV1 decoding to enjoy the latest from Netflix and other major streaming platforms.
Additionally, if you are planning to use the card for work, you should know that RTX cards are very versatile. Applications such as graphical visualization, machine learning, data analysis and artificial intelligence (AI) utilize the computing power of these cards and Nvidia’s technologies. We just tried the Nvidia Canvas software to create a digital work, and the result is well worth it.
Nvidia graphics cards are back in stock
After long months of shortage, Nvidia graphics cards are gradually returning to stock. The manufacturer has even developed a “Restock & Reloaded” page so you can see the availability of its graphics card.
