ASUS Intros ROG Strix White Variants of its GeForce RTX 30-series Graphics Cards

ASUS today introduced White variants of its Republic of Gamers (ROG) Strix custom-design GeForce RTX 30-series graphics cards. These card have essentially the same board design as the original ROG Strix RTX 30-series, but with streaks of matte-white and brushed-metal making up the cooler shrouds, back-plates, and impellers of the three Axial-Tech fans. The PCB underneath is still black. The RGB LED embellishments are identical to those on the original ROG Strix cards. The cards also feature the same factory-overclocked speeds as their original-design siblings.

Among the variants ASUS is launching are the ROG-STRIX-RTX3090-O24G-WHITE and ROG-STRIX-RTX3090-24G-WHITE, based on the RTX 3090; ROG-STRIX-RTX3080-O10G-WHITE and ROG-STRIX-RTX3080-10G-WHITE based on the RTX 3080; and ROG-STRIX-RTX3070-O8G-WHITE and ROG-STRIX-RTX3070-8G-WHITE, based on the RTX 3070. The company didn't reveal pricing, although we expect these cards to be priced at a slight premium over the original ROG Strix RTX 30-series.

They made it white on purpose - it's the color of Yetti! The difference is that Yetti was reportedly seen once ...

Yeah it defeats the purpose of having a white card.

To me, these would have looked SO much better if they'd kept the silver bits, well, silver. Would have helped to break up all that white...

I would adore this alot more if the PCB was also painted. I would buy one guarantee for my build if they did that.

a black PCB that you can't see when it is plugged in makes it not worth it? :roll:

Have you looked at the other images before passing this judgement?

Instead of spitting out new SKUs they should focus on delivering stock for existing models.

But the problem isn't in the heatsink, its the GPU dies themselves. I could see your point if the problem was sourcing cooling...

Oh I forgot, ASUS is selling DIY kits with boards and heatsinks without any chips inside them...
3080 TUF
3080 TUF OC
3080 STRIX
3080 STRIX OC

Now they also have:
3080 STRIX WHITE
3080 STRIX OC WHITE

If they can't deliver enough of first 4 why the hell do they announce another 2 SKU's?

Why not? Again, the problem isn't in the heatsinks holding things up...so why not get a couple of White SKUs out there? If they don't others will (too late, Zotac)... I think your frustration is misplaced. :)
