On Monday we officially saw the launch of the new Nvidia Turing Gaming GPU’s and here is one awesome card from ASUS, the ROG STRIX RTX2080 OC Edition 8GB GDDR6.
This beauty of a GPU comes with some pretty nifty features and we can’t wait to do a review on it(or it’s big brother the RTX 2080Ti). I am especially excited to see the Stealth Mode(can anybody say ninja), Dual mode BIOS and the new cooling fans. Have a look below at what can be expected:
OUTSHINE THE COMPETITION
Axial-tech Fans – Better, Faster, Stronger
To keep Turing™’s temperatures under tight control, we’ve brought a larger cooler to the table, which necessitates a more powerful and efficient fan that must maintain a whisper-quiet acoustic profile. Axial-tech meets these three design challenges by implementing our latest innovations for fan performance. We’ve reduced the size of the fan’s hub to allow for longer blades and added a barrier ring that increases structural integrity and downward air pressure through the ROG Strix GeForce® RTX 2080’s heatsink array.
2.7-Slot Design – Sink your heat into this
This generation, our top-end cards adopt a 2.7-slot footprint to accommodate a larger heatsink because bigger is better. If you want to squeeze the most out of the ROG Strix GeForce® RTX 2080’s performance, our latest design gives you a lot more thermal headroom for overclocking. If you’re just looking for an amazing plug-and-play experience, the extra heat dissipation keeps your fans running at lower speeds while you game.
MaxContact Technology – Precision-machined heat spreader
MaxContact is an industry-first technology that utilizes precision machining to create a heat spreader surface that makes up to 2X more contact with the GPU chip, resulting in improved thermal transfer.
Auto-Extreme Technology – Precision Automated Manufacturing
All ROG Strix graphics cards are produced using Auto-Extreme Technology, an automated manufacturing process that sets new standards in the industry.
- Our robots don’t make mistakes, removing human fallibility from the equation
- Soldering done in a single pass
- Fortified components offer better stability when overclocking
- Flux-free production is an environmentally friendly change
- Automation allows for tighter quality control
- Our circuit boards are smooth, so you won’t cut yourself when handling the cards
GPU Tweak II – Monitor, Tweak and Tune
The ASUS GPU Tweak II utility takes graphics card performance tuning and to the next level. It allows you to tweak critical parameters including GPU core clocks, memory frequency, voltage settings, and more with the option to monitor everything in real-time through a customizable on-screen display.
Wtfast – Play lag-free
We’ve partnered with wtfast to help you to play free from lag, latency and lost packets. With a 6-month subscription to the wtfast Gamers Private Network, you’ll enjoy lower ping for a smoother, more fluid online gaming experience. Buy an ASUS graphics card – and don’t be left waiting!
You can sync to music, change color based on temperature, or select from a large number of patterns and static options, so make sure to look out for the Aura Sync logo when you’re picking parts for your build.
Stealth Mode – Be a ninja
Sometime you just want to turn off all the lights… That’s why we’ve outfitted the ROG Strix GeForce® RTX 2080 with a convenient stealth mode button. Give it a press and you’ll instantly transform from a master of the color-verse into a stealthy ninja.
Dual Bios – Choose wisely
ASUS FanConnect II – Smarter fan speed
Virtual Reality – See me now?
NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ Technology – Smooth operator
The ROG Strix GeForce® RTX 2080 features NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ display technology for the smoothest and fastest gaming imaginable, eliminating screen tearing and minimizing display stutter and input lag. Enjoy the latest first-person shooters, sports and action-adventure games at super-fast frame rates, even at the highest graphics settings!
