ASUS / Noctua GeForce RTX 3080 card in the picture, has a cooling solution with four slots

ASUS is releasing a new GeForce graphics card with Noctua cooling

The RTX 3080 will be the new SKU with cult brown Noctua fans.

Almost half a year after the introduction of the first ASUS graphics card designed in collaboration with Noctu, we finally got a new SKU. This time it is a model based on the GA102, RTX 3080. Interestingly, the company opted for the 10 GB version rather than the 12 GB model that was launched in January. So probably no one should say that the 10 GB model is gradually shutting down at this point.

The card has a very similar four-slot cooling solution with two 120 mm fans. Based on our quick check, both the RTX 3080 and RTX 3070 seem to be the same size, the cooling solution hasn’t changed much, but the heatsink has obviously been modified for a larger GPU.

The card is equipped with dual 8-pin power connectors and non-standard display connectors: 3x DisplayPort 1.4 and dual HDMI 2.1. The board seems to be the same design as the RTX 3080 TUF series.

The card can be found at a price of 1150 EUR, which is 250 EUR more expensive than the RTX 3070 Noctua. ASUS has not provided any information about this model so far.
