GIGABYTE Prepares AORUS Turbo GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, Features Blower-style Cooler

GIGABYTE looks to expand their NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti lineup with the AORUS Turbo. This new offering features a blower-style cooler with a plastic shroud and no backplate. Considering the AORUS brand is typically enthusiast focused along with the fact GIGABYTE themselves already offer an RTX 2080 Ti with a blower-style cooler makes the AORUS Turbo a bit of a head-scratcher. Comparing the two shows the plastic shroud has been altered, however, outward appearance aside it is likely that the AORUS Turbo uses the same cooler as the GIGABYTE RTX 2080 Ti Turbo, which features a large vapor chamber cooler paired with a high-efficiency aluminium heatsink.

Meanwhile, power delivery is handled by two 8-pin PCIe connectors which are the standard for RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards. Display connectivity consists of three Displayport connectors, one HDMI connector, and a USB-C connector with VritualLink support. Other than that, full specifications and pricing are currently unknown. However, it can be speculated that the AORUS Turbo RTX 2080 Ti will feature stock clocks of 1545 MHz on the core and 14000 MHz on the memory with a price that should be close to MSRP at least in theory.

Maybe it's an upgraded cooler with the intent of a multicard setup?

In case Aorus and Blower slapped together were not enough.

Fixed, had multiple Gigabyte etc cards open side by side to verify the differences on various models in regards cooler / shroud etc and spaced it ie brain fart.

The 2000 series include a HDMI to DVI-D adaptor.

...a large vapor chamber paired with a high-efficiency aluminum heatsink
The fins soldered on the vapor chamber are not made of aluminum. Mainly because aluminum don't solder for shit. Probably other reasons too. Anywho...I'm pretty sure there made from stainless steel. I've got the one from my Vega 64 in hand here. I can't say for sure what it is. But whatever it is, it's shiny, looks and feels like some kind of steel, isn't magnetic, and most definitely is not aluminum. Pretty much only one thing it could be...stainless steel.

Looks like totally reasonable card when using water cooling.

Ie you simply throw out the blower and don't care.

Judging by the look of it, that card is gonna be a pro at thermal throttling and high temperatures. At over a grand, I'd expect something rather better than a cheap-ass cooler like this. I'll pass.

I guess they have that Turbo name because of the fan runs at turbo speeds.

Perhaps even sub FE imo. At least NVIDIA's FEs look good quality, unlike this POS.

I bet they sell it for something like $100 less than the average price for a 2080 Ti and sell bucketloads of them, too. :rolleyes:
