The MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Gaming X Trio is the second fastest model of MSI's Turing series. The card is huge, it's brawny, and it packs a hell of a lot of power under its gigantic shroud. In pure performance terms, this graphics card doesn't have to hide behind the competition. It's an irrepressible beast, and the story of this card is common to every Turing card.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
The MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Gaming X Trio is the second fastest model in the series. Only the new Suprim X series should be able to surpass it in terms of performance. The workmanship is at a very high level. RGB lighting is obviously a must, and it attracts attention when the case has a side window.

Sentiment Score[*] 80%
Reviewers from pcmag have found the following[***]:
The $759 MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Gaming X Trio 10G is a fine graphics card. It brings the beast to 4K gaming or very-high-refresh 1440p play. The card is a brute on its own, scored a few outright frame-rate victories.

MSI's RTX 3080 Gaming X Trio is one of the best models for serious enthusiasts. It has three massive fans and a graphene backplate that will help wick away excess heat. It also has an extra 8-pin power connector, which will allow serious overclockers to bump up the voltage to unlock even more performance.
