ASUS to release a new GeForce graphics card with Noctua cooling

The RTX 3080 will be the new SKU featuring the iconic brown Noctua fans.

Nearly half a year after the introduction of the first ASUS graphics card designed with collaboration with Noctua, we finally get a new SKU. This time around, it’s the GA102-based model, the RTX 3080. Interestingly, the company opted for the 10GB version, not the 12GB model that launched in January. Thus, no one should probably be saying that 10GB model is being phased out at this point.

The card features a very similar quad-slot cooling solution with two 120 mm fans. Based on our quick check, both the RTX 3080 and RTX 3070 appear to be the same size, the cooling solution has not changed much, but the heatsink is obviously modified for a bigger 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. It appears to be the same board design as RTX 3080 TUF series.

The card can be found listed at 1150 EUR, which is 250 EUR more expensive than RTX 3070 Noctua. ASUS has thus far not provided any information on this model.
