As for the variant itself, the ZOTAC Trinity OC is one of the high-end NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 custom variants that comes with a massive 3.2-slot cooler with a triple fan design, and the same gaming aesthetic that includes SPECTRA 2.0 RGB lighting, an extended backplate and a factory -OC of up to 2520 MHz (+15 MHz above stock speed). The card is powered by a single 16-pin connector and can draw up to 320W of power. Users get 9728 CUDA cores and 16GB of GDDR6X memory over a 256-bit wide bus interface.
In terms of performance, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 and AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX GPUs trade blows with RDNA 3 offering to sit slightly ahead in rasterized performance while Ada takes charge of ray tracing. NVIDIA also has support for DLSS 3, while AMD has yet to release FSR 3, the competitor to NVIDIA's interpolation technology. The Radeon offering offers higher VRAM at 24GB capacity over a wider bus interface that matches the flagship RTX 4090, but the card also uses more power than an RTX 4080, a department (efficiency) where the Ada GPUs shine.
Nor will this be the first time the card has reached such a low price. The MSI Ventus 3X was the first NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 variant to reach such low prices in the US retail segment. The RTX 4080 is generally not perceived as a great value considering the huge price increase compared to its predecessor RTX 3080, but given the competition, NVIDIA has had its way with prices this generation.
