ZOTAC Preparing GeForce RTX 2080 Ti ArcticStorm Watercooled Graphics Card for CES 2019

ZOTAC are preparing a RTX 2080 Ti rendition of their ArcticStorm branded graphics cards. The ArcticStorm branding comes as a way to differentiate ZOTAC's graphics cards that pack a pre-installed waterblock, and will thus allow fur ultra cool, ultra silent temperatures on NVIDIA's beast of a GPU. The first rendition of the ArcticStorm, watercooled branding came to life under ZOTAC's GTX 1080 Ti, if you'll remember - the design has become more complex, and more colorful.

The RTX 2080 Ti ArcticStorm should feature a 16+4 phases power design, thus allowing for higher overclocking capabilities. The ArcticStorm cooling has been aesthetically redesigned, making use of the company's Spectra 2.0 RGB lighting control system for per-LED adjustments based on user preference. Expect further details to be revealed during CES.

So is it going to be like the 1080ti where the block was made of aluminum and the product got discontinued a few months after launch? No flow over VRMs too?

The power of RGB will make the VRMs operate near absolute zero. /s

Aluminium? WTF?! So they can simply kill my custom loop? Because every advanced user uses cooper based cpu block/rads anyway.

In the old threads, the answer Zotac provided is that there is not aluminum in the block itself, but in the backplate. I've had a 1080 Ti ArcticStorm in my loop for over 1.5 years without issue.

This block is the cheapest possible product with high diode support.
It does not cool with the liquid of the MOSFETs, the processor cools the copper insert. That's all
From my own experience, I will say that the life time of Zoteck cards is the shortest because investing in materials is a problem , but it will be shown after the expiration of the warranty!

oh swell, MOAR bling bling AND water cooling together in 1 over-priced, over-hyped, zippidydoodah package....

they probably (conveniently) forgot to mention the price (as always) for fear of causing ANUTHA massive round of consumer sticker shock and heart attacks :eek: :kookoo: o_O

I am just hoping this isn't like the 1080Ti VRM section where they went with the absolutely cheapest products they could, but put 16 of them so it sounded like it was the best, when in reality it was arguably worse than the reference design.
