ASUS x Noctua RTX 4080

ASUS has announced its next-gen Noctua GPU.

Unfortunately, the design of the card is not black as we suspected. The new Noctua GPU will utilize the same color scheme as the predecessor, a mix of brown and beige, a signature colors of the Austrian cooling company Noctua.

ASUS confirms that the new RTX 4080 model will feature the same fans as the predecessor, which is NF-A12x25 PWN fans. This card will support 0dB mode, and it should be ‘the quietest card in its class’.

ASUS GeForce RTX™ 4080 Noctua OC Edition 16GB GDDR6X (RTX4080-O16G-NOCTUA)

  • The quietest air-cooled graphics card in its class.
  • Two Noctua NF-A12x25 PWM fans deliver exceptional cooling and low noise.
  • Dual BIOS switch lets you toggle between Quiet and Performance BIOS profiles sans software.
  • 0dB technology lets you enjoy light gaming in relative silence.
  • GPU Tweak III provides intuitive performance tweaking, thermal controls, and system monitoring.

The company has thus far released only one picture of the new card, but it is easy to see that the card will be at least quad-slot design (same as RTX 30 cards). There is no word on other models yet, such as the just announced RTX 4070 Ti or AMD RX 7900 variant for a change.

Update: ASUS has now confirmed that the card is 4.3-slot, and it features an improved vapor chamber:

While our collaboration with Noctua on the GeForce RTX 3070 and RTX 3080 Noctua Editions was a great success in minimizing acoustics for maximum GPU performance, we were not content to rest on our laurels. So this year, we incorporated an expansive vapor chamber with a network of eight heatpipes. When operating at the GeForce RTX 4080’s TDP of 320W, the ASUS GeForce RTX 4080 Noctua Edition peaks at just 61.7° Celsius, with the same ultra-low noise levels as the GeForce RTX 3070 and RTX 3080 Noctua variants. To get the absolute most out of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080, trust the decades of engineering expertise behind ASUS and Noctua.
