The Palit GeForce RTX™ 3080 Gaming is as cool as its little brother, the GeForce RTX™ 3070 Gaming Pro. Its peak temperature of 75c allows more headroom for overclocking even if the GPU is factory overclocked out of the box. You can definitely squeeze more performance as its cooling can clearly keep up.
The Palit GeForce RTX™ 3080 Gaming Pro consumes the same amount of power as the GeForce RTX™ 3080 Founders Edition despite being factory overclocked out of the box. This translates to the Palit GeForce RTX™ 3080 Gaming Pro having a greater FPS-per-watt efficiency as we saw it dominate the charts in our benchmarks.
