In just a few more days, Black Friday will officially commence, followed by Cyber Monday, and we'll be highlighting the best deals throughout it all. In the meantime, vendors continue to get a jump start on the shopping frenzy with early deals. Count Newegg among them—it's selling a Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2080 Gaming OC graphics card for $749.99 today.
That's $150 below the card's MSRP. It's also $50 cheaper than Nvidia's Founders Edition model. Like the FE variant, Gigabyte's card is factory overclocked to 1,815MHz (boost clock) in Gaming mode, and 1,830MHz in OC mode. Both of those are higher than the FE's 1,800MHz boost clock, and Nvidia's reference blueprint, which calls for a 1,710MHz clockspeed.
Gigabyte's card also sports a Windforce 3X custom cooler with three cooling fans. The middle fan spins in the opposite direction as the two that flank it. According to Gigabyte, this optimizes airflow and enables more efficient performance at lower temperatures.
