There isn’t any design change with the packaging of the Inno3D RTX 3080 Ti iChill X4 as it still follows the iChill design with the cooler shroud render and the large X4 text on the left. Unlike most third-party graphics cards, the packaging on the card only shows the standard Nvidia Ampere architecture features instead of a feature highlight of the model and its cooler.

Props to Inno3D for including a PSU guide which is very helpful even for seasoned PC builders as the RTX 3080 Ti is rated at the same 350W TGP as the RTX 3090. The Installation Guide shows how to use the included wrench for the supposedly included graphics card stand – Our unit doesn’t seem to come with the said GPU holder. An external RGB cable is also included for syncing to other RGB ecosystems such as ASUS Aura Sync, MSI Mystic Light, and ASRock PolyChrome RGB.
The Inno3D RTX 3080 Ti iChill X4 is without a doubt one of the bulkiest cards out there due to its aggressive design. Even So, looking at the cooler shroud itself highlights its ruggedness as highlighted by the two-tone color.
The back of the card shows the cooler to extend through the card’s actual PCB. The solid die casting backplate also extends to the cooler covering the whole GPU. The extended part isn’t fully covered thus making the exposed heatsink function similar to Nvidia’s flowthrough design concept found on RTX 30 series Founders Edition graphics cards.
Inno3D made some changes to the side design of its iChill X4 cooler compared to the Inno3D RTX 3070 iChill X4. The plate of the GEFORCE RTX text is an extension of the backplate which covers the side heatsink.
Inno3D’s signature 4.5cm side rotor fan is positioned where the cooler extends providing additional cooling to the MOSFET area.
Like any other GPUs, the Inno3D RTX 3080 Ti iChill X4 sports the standard single HDMI 2.1 port and three DisplayPort 1.4a ports. The bottom part of port housing has a perforated design to maximize airflow.
Dual 8-pin PCI-E power connectors are positioned at the end of the PCB which is in between the GEFORCE RTX side plate and the side rotor fan. The Inno3D RTX 3080 Ti requires a minimum PSU wattage of 750W and has a TGP of 350w.
As mentioned earlier, the Inno3D RTX 3080Ti iChill X4 is definitely one of the biggest GPUs across the RTX 30 series. Its three-slot width and side posses a problem for most if not all ITX cases. Next to the Palit RTX 3080 Gaming Pro, its length is relatively standard for higher-end models with only the width and side becoming an issue for case compatibility.
