ASUS today introduced the Dual GeForce RTX 2080 EVO series graphics cards, available in two variants based on factory-overclock. Positioned between its RTX 2080 Dual and RTX 2080 ROG Strix series, these cards are characterized by a unique 3-slot thick cooling solution that implements a pair of Axial Tech fans. These fans feature a barrier ring that runs along the periphery of the impeller to prevent lateral airflow, and guide all of it axially (downwards onto the heatsink). The card also features an idle fan-stop, which turns these fans off when the GPU temperature is below 55 °C.

The card draws power from a combination of 6-pin and 8-pin PCIe power connectors. Display outputs include three DisplayPort 1.4, an HDMI 2.0b, and a USB-C VirtualLink. As mentioned earlier, the card comes in two variants. The base variant "DUAL-RTX2080-8G-EVO" features NVIDIA-reference clock speeds of 1710 MHz GPU Boost, while the more premium "DUAL-RTX2080-A8G-EVO" comes with 1725 MHz GPU Boost. Memory frequency is untouched on both cards, at 14 Gbps (GDDR6-effective). The company didn't reveal pricing.

Why oh why do they design shrouds that completely cover the heatsinks :mad: where is the air supposed to come out from?
Look at some of MSI's designs, particularly the Ventus; you can do pretty and efficient.

As you can see the MSI design have a thinner heatsink the air can escape more easly. The new DUAL from Asus is way more thicker and they cover it to force the air go thorough all the fins before escaping. This is the same thing with thick water cooling radiators. You need to force the air so all fins are passed by the air. Because you have more heatsink fins and dense that need to be cooled.

What are you talking about? What's "thinner" in there?

That makes no sense.

The MSI heatsink is finer and has less depth in centimeters compared to the DUAL from Asus.


If you look better at ASUS's DUAL it's almost 3 PCI slots and is not because of the cover but also for the heatsink.

You do not know the dynamics of the air, the more you have radiators / heatsinks thicker the air will struggle to pierce them !!!

Here's if you convoy the air like Asus did with that big piece of plastic !

You will force the air to go through the full width of the heatsink !!

And what an ugly thing it would be if everyone had to think of it like you and have graphics cards all the same because YOU think in your own way is the best in the world and it is not at all! Welcome innovations, experiments, new concepts and so on ! And ASUS is the only company that does well just look at the new ROG MATRIX.

The MSI is a triple slot too. And with fans spinning at well above 1000 rpm I dont't think air will have trouble going the full height of the heatsink.

Pff.. Do you think you understand the thermo and aerodynamics of these cards?

maybe they should just try to make the Strix less expensive
where I live the 2080 Strix costs almost 1000 usd
while the gigabyte 2080 gaming oc could be found for under 800
and i dont think the strix is worth the extra 200 bucks

Not bad cards at all. I like even how they look.
But what's purpose, to present some model with lower price?

They have Turbo/Strix/Dual models as well.

But EVGA have great Turing series. FTW Hybrid, K|NGP|N, Hydro Copper, hard to choose really.
