It's a mixed bag. I have a 3000 series from each and have followed their forums. While EVGA is known for their customer support, their 3080 cards seem to have a lot of user reported issues and they did some nutty stuff with the power delivery this time around. On the other hand, Asus made a really solid card in the Tuf with low temps and overall good performance. The number of posts about issues doesn't seem to be as wide spread. They seemed to have learned their lessons from the horrible Tuf cards in the past.
I agree most heartily, but also note that Asus's suckass warranty service is most centered upon their graphics cards. I RMA'd an Asus ProArt monitor, which was only a month from going out of warranty, and it was repaired and returned within a week. It worked for another 6 years until it finally gave up the ghost.However, ASUS sucks when it comes to warranty/RMA.
Considering EVGA is the only company that has a nice queue system that greatly mitigates bots, scalpers, etc, odds are that will be the easiest card to buy near MSRP.
Do you even have a choice? Most don't..sorry for the bump but I need some advice...taking stock/availability and price out of the equation which is the best buy between the EVGA 3080 FTW3 Ultra vs Asus TUF and Strix?....performance is about the same among all 3080 brands so it's all about the cooling and temps...the TUF/Strix cards seem to be around 10 degrees cooler then the EVGA but I also read that coil whine is more of an issue with them
EVGA FTW3 Ultra does seem a bit quieter then the Asus...when talking about EVGA people always talk about the warranty and support but what if you never use those things?...I'm also hearing about issues with the FTW3 as far as the insane amount of power it uses...so taking everything into consideration which is the better buy- Strix, TUF or FTW3 Ultra?...Thanks for the help
