Inno3D wants gamers to get Frostbites
Inno3D has launched two more liquid-cooled RTX 4090 GPUs, each offering a different kind of features.
For those who may have missed the news, it’s important to be aware that Inno3D currently offers two liquid-cooled RTX 4090 graphics cards: the iChill Frostbite and iChill Black (pictured later in the post). These two cards share the same PCB design, but they differ slightly in their water cooling setups. The iChill Black model comes with a full water loop, complete with an external 240mm radiator. On the other hand, the iChill Frostbite requires an existing custom loop since it is equipped with a waterblock that cannot function independently.
Inno3D has announced an expansion of their Frostbite series today, introducing two new cards with pre-installed waterblocks. The new additions to the lineup are named Frostbite Ultra and Frostbite Pro, both part of the iChill series.
The Frostbite Ultra boasts a 24+4 VRM phase design and comes with a default 500W TDP. However, users have the flexibility to configure it up to 600W using the available software. The card features chrome-plated G1/4″ threads, which should be taken into consideration when planning a new PC build or upgrading an existing one. In terms of performance, the Ultra offers a 2595 MHz boost clock.
The Ultra model comes with an acrylic waterblock that features ARGB lighting, providing a visually appealing look. On the other hand, for those who prefer a more streamlined design, the Frostbite Pro might be a better choice. It offers a compact one-slot design and lacks any lighting features. It’s worth noting that both models share the same PCB, but the Pro version includes a one-slot I/O bracket.
As a trade-off for the single-slot design, the Pro model has slightly lower specifications compared to the Ultra. Its boost clock goes up to 2520 MHz, and it operates with a TDP of 450W.
Inno3D has confirmed that the cards will soon be available through major distributors, but specific pricing details and the list of participating retailers have not been provided in the official press release.
