ASUS Announces GeForce RTX-20 Series Graphics Cards

ASUS today announced the Republic of Gamers (ROG) Strix, ASUS Dual, and ASUS Turbo graphics cards based on the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and RTX 2080 GPUs, which feature support for high-speed GDDR6 memory and VirtualLink for quick, single-cable connections for next-generation VR headsets.

The new NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPUs have reinvented graphics and set a new bar for performance. Powered by the new NVIDIA Turing GPU architecture and the revolutionary NVIDIA RTX platform, the new graphics cards bring together real-time ray tracing, artificial intelligence, and programmable shading. This is not only a whole new way to experience games-this is the ultimate PC gaming experience.

The new GPUs were unveiled at a special NVIDIA two-day event called the "GeForce Gaming Celebration" which kicked off tonight at the Palladium in Cologne, Germany ahead of Gamescom 2018.
"Our new GeForce RTX GPUs are ushering in an amazing new generation of games and immersion and we're incredibly happy that ASUS continues to bring a legacy of experience and innovation to the industry", said Justin Walker, director of GeForce desktop at NVIDIA. "Each ROG and ASUS series meets the needs of a variety of gamers who will undoubtedly appreciate the updated designs and new cooling technology that will help drive their PC gaming experiences."

ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and 2080
The ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and 2080 keep Turing cool with brand-new Axial-tech fans that implement the latest ROG innovations, including a reduced-size fan hub to allow for longer blades and a barrier ring that increases structural integrity and downward air pressure through the ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and 2080's heatsink array. The new design allows Axial-tech fans to shift more air without increasing noise levels.

Auto-Extreme Technology
All ROG Strix graphics cards are produced using Auto-Extreme Technology, an automated manufacturing process that sets new standards in the industry. Traditionally, soldering of through-hole and surface-mounted components needs to be performed in separate stages. Auto-Extreme Technology allows all soldering to be completed in a single pass, reducing thermal strain on components and avoiding the use of harsh cleaning chemicals. The end result is less environmental impact, lower manufacturing power consumption and a more reliable product.

ASUS Dual GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and 2080
The ASUS Dual GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and 2080 graphics cards feature patented Wing-blade fans. This technology trickled down to Dual cards from the ROG Strix series and boasts higher air pressure, reduced noise levels and IP5X certified dust resistance. For those who love silence, the fan controllers also support a 0dB fan stop mode.

2.7-Slot Design
The latest ROG Strix and Dual cards adopt a 2.7-slot footprint to accommodate a larger heatsink because bigger is better. The overall surface area of the cooling array is 20% larger for the ROG Strix cards and more than 50% larger for the Dual cards compared to previous-generation designs. The improved heat dissipation provides more overclocking headroom for enthusiasts and an amazing plug-and-play experience by allowing lower fan speeds while gaming.

ASUS Turbo GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and 2080
The ASUS Turbo GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and 2080 are designed from the ground up for systems with multiple GPUs or other airflow-restricting scenarios by incorporating a host of subtle design optimizations

that improve airflow through the shroud and increase reliability. Upgrades include an 80 mm IP5X dual-ball bearing fan and a new shroud design that allows more air to flow into the cooler, even when it's pressed against a glass chassis panel or another graphics card.

Most of the top models of most AIBs are three fan design. That can tell something about how power hungry this cards will be.

So happy that NVIDIA is finally killing off the DVI port. Sucks to be all the people with those DVI-only 144Hz monitors, but there was a reason they were so cheap, and now the owners pay that cost.

About as power-hungry as all the triple-fan coolers that every AIB has used on their top models for the past 3 generations, you mean?

All of these coolers are capable of dissipating stupid amounts of heat (Gigabyte's is supposed to handle up to 600W or something crazy) so they will have no problem with the few extra tens of watts RTX puts out.

and it all goes into the case.. he he..

which does become problem if you want more than one card..

Doesnt seem to have the SLI fingers on these new cards either so it looks like SLI is dead.

That boost clock is laughable. given that 7nm will reach 2,5-3,0Ghz next year. RTX 2080Ti is slower than RTX 4070 the same way 980Ti FE and 1070.

SLI is only for flagship card, A weak card is better to be replaced with 75% faster than to get into troubles with SLI.

And how exactly is the RTX 2080 NOT a flagship when the SLI is enabled on 1080, 70, Ti, etc?

They removed it from the 2070, 2080 and 2080Ti both still support SLI.

The 2080 and 2080 ti do support SLi in the form of NVLINK. Per the nvidia website:

Does your time machine have a space for 2?

One feature that I really like about ROG cards that never seems to get mentioned in articles, is that they have two PWM external fan headers at the end of the card. In my case I run the bottom case fan off of that, so the speed is governed by GPU temps instead of CPU temps from a motherboard header. This is a very nice feature if you have an excellent CPU cooler that never really lets your case fans ramp up, but your GPU is at max load and heating up. There are plenty of times that I see my bottom fan running faster than the rest of the fans tied to CPU temps for this reason, and it also turns off completely when the GPU fans go into zero rpm mode under no load. I'm guessing there may be software solutions to do this too, but it is really nice to have a native plug-n-play header to run off of. I don't know of other brand cards that have this, but I think it should be more common place.
