Alphacool Announces Eiswolf 2 360mm AIO VGA Coolers for GIGABYTE RTX 3080/3090 Cards

Alphacool today presents the Eiswolf 2 "All-in-One" solution for NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080/3090 Gigabyte Gaming/Eagle graphics cards. The Eiswolf 2 uses the Alphacool 360 mm NexXxoS ST30 full copper radiator. For the fans, we use the 120 mm Alphacool Aurora Rise. This impressive fan with a max. static pressure of 3.17 mm/H2O, offers a max. air flow of 119.8m3/h. The speed range of the fan, from 0-2500rpm, is adjustable via PWM. The AIO is completed by the Eisblock Aurora water cooler. This not only cools the GPU chip, but actively cools all relevant components such as the memory and VRAM. It also has brilliant aRGB lighting.

All components used (radiator, fan, cooler, DC-LT 2 pump) including fittings and tubing are part of the Alphacool DIY range and are therefore available separately. The combination of all components results in a solution that is as easy to install as an AIO, but offers the performance of a pre-assembled and pre-filled custom loop. Only the pump housing for the DC-LT 2 pump is a custom-made item that is only part of the scope of delivery of the AIO solution and is therefore not available separately.

Cancelled Gigabyte RTX 3080 Ti 20GB Achieves 98 MH/s in Ethereum Mining

NVIDIA was originally planning to release the RTX 3080 Ti with 20 GB of memory however this was changed shortly before the official announcement to 12 GB. This plan came very close to fruition with NVIDIA manufacturing and distributing these GPU's to board partners including Gigabyte, some of these completed cards have now been sold in limited quantities. The Gigabyte RTX 3080 Ti 20 GB Gaming OC was purchased by a Russian YouTuber who tested the card's cryptocurrency mining performance and uploaded the BIOS to our GPU database.

The RTX 3080 Ti 20 GB lacks official NVIDIA Game Ready drivers with Gigabyte Russia denying the existence of the model making cryptocurrency mining the only viable use for the product. The card doesn't feature the Lite Hash Rate (LHR) algorithm NVIDIA has been including on all their new cards including the RTX 3080 Ti 12 GB giving it excellent performance in Ethereum mining. The retailer had pre-configured the card with a 100 MHz boost clock increase and a 1000 MHz boost to the memory speed along with a TDP limiter of 80%.

GIGABYTE Announces Radeon RX 6700 XT Gaming OC and EAGLE Graphics Cards

GIGABYTE today rolled out a pair of custom-design AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics cards. These include the RX 6700 XT Gaming OC, and the RX 6700 XT EAGLE. The company will also sell reference-design "made by AMD" RX 6700 XT cards. The RX 6700 XT Gaming OC features a WindForce 3X cooling solution that looks practically identical to the Radeon RX 6800 Gaming OC card, with possible modifications to its heatsink's base-plate. Three aluminium fin-stacks are skewered by five 6 mm-thick copper heat-pipes that make direct contact with the GPU. Additional base-plates pull heat from the memory and VRM areas. The card draws power from a combination of 8-pin and 6-pin PCIe power connectors. Display outputs include two each of HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4 connectors.

The Radeon RX 6700 XT EAGLE is the more slender of the two custom-design RX 6700 XT cards by GIGABYTE. It is strictly 2 slots thick, and uses a slimmer heatsink. Three aluminium fin-stacks are joined by three 8 mm-thick copper heat pipes that make direct contact with the GPU. The power input configuration is the same as the Gaming OC card, as is the display output configuration. GIGABYTE didn't disclose the factory overclock speeds or either cards, but the Gaming OC card is expected to be the faster of the two. Both cards are expected to launch on March 18, 2021.

GIGABYTE Outs GeForce RTX 3080 Gaming OC WaterForce WB

GIGABYTE is ready with its GeForce RTX 3080 Gaming OC WaterForce WB graphics card. This card is extensively based on the company's more affordable Gaming OC custom-design RTX 3080 PCB, but comes with a factory-fitted full-coverage water-block, and is targeted at those with DIY liquid cooling setups. GIGABYTE sells another such custom RTX 3080 card, the RTX 3080 AORUS Xtreme WaterForce WB, which is based on the top-tier AORUS Xtreme PCB. The new RTX 3080 Gaming OC WaterForce WB is about 32 cm in length, same as the air-cooled card it's derived from, is 2 slots thick, and standard height. In comparison, the AORUS Xtreme WaterForce WB is 25.2 cm in length (just about the length of the PCB), 16.3 cm tall, and the block is single-slot thick, although its I/O forces it to be 2-slot.

The GIGABYTE RTX 3080 Gaming OC WaterForce WB uses nickel-plated copper as its primary material for the water-block, capped by an acrylic top that's mostly covered by by a plastic+metal shroud. The top is studded with addressable RGB LEDs that can be controlled using GIGABYTE's RGB Fusion software. The card comes with the same 1800 MHz GPU Boost factory-OC as its air-cooled sibling (compared to 1710 MHz reference). It does not come with the leak-detection feature you get with the AORUS Xtreme WaterForce WB. Connectivity includes three DisplayPort 1.4a and two HDMI 2.1 connectors. The card pulls power from two 8-pin PCIe inputs. The company didn't reveal pricing.

GIGABYTE Unveils Radeon RX 6900 XT Gaming OC

GIGABYTE Monday released its first custom-design AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics card, the Gaming OC (model: GV-R69XTGAMING OC-16GD). As of this writing, the company hasn't yet announced RX 6900 XT based cards under its coveted AORUS Gaming series. The RX 6900 XT Gaming OC features a mostly similar board design to the RX 6800 XT Gaming OC, with a large triple-slot cooling solution, and a custom-design PCB. The cooler features three aluminium fin-stacks skewered by six 6 mm-thick copper heat pipes that make contact with the GPU and memory through a copper base-plate, while secondary base-plates pull heat from the VRM.

What sets the RX 6900 XT Gaming OC board design apart from its RX 6800 XT-based sibling, is a slightly bolstered VRM setup that pulls power from three 8-pin PCIe power connectors, as opposed to two on the RX 6800 XT Gaming OC. As a factory-overclocked card, the RX 6900 XT Gaming OC offers Boost frequencies of up to 2285 MHz (compared to 2250 MHz reference), and an increased power-limit. The card features dual-BIOS, and the default "OC" BIOS features these clock-speeds, while the "Silent" BIOS possibly trades off some power-limit for an aggressive fan-curve. Display outputs include two each of HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4a connectors, there's no USB-C. The company didn't reveal pricing.

GIGABYTE Outs Radeon RX 6800 Series AORUS Master and Gaming OC Graphics Cards

GIGABYTE Readies Several Radeon RX 5500 Series Graphics Cards

GIGABYTE has filed regulatory filings with the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) for several Radeon RX 5500-series graphics cards, including as many as six models based on the range-topping RX 5500 XT. The filing confirms that the RX 5500 XT is real, and that all six models from GIGABYTE feature 8 GB of GDDR6 memory. The RX 5500 XT, or Navi 10 XTX is rumored to feature 24 RDNA compute units, making up 1,536 stream processors, and a 128-bit wide GDDR6 memory interface, holding 8 GB of memory. AMD possibly hopes to capture sub-$250 price points with this SKU, given that NVIDIA preempted it with the $230 GeForce GTX 1660 Super.

Among the six models, going by GIGABYTE naming conventions, are cards based on the company's WindForce 2X cooler, the Gaming OC SKU that possibly has the larger WindForce 3X cooler, and simpler models that stick to reference clock-speeds. GIGABYTE has been rather restrained with its AMD "Navi" graphics card series, with only two custom-design RX 5700-series graphics cards so far. The same EEC filing also references several additional RX 5700-series SKUs from the company, including some based on its coveted Aorus Gaming brand.

Gigabyte Readying RTX 2080 Gaming OC White Edition Graphics Card

Even as our very own review of Gigabyte's RTX 2080 Gaming OC is hot from the presses and still carries that sweet, new-graphics-card aura, the company is readying a new, white version of the card. This will certainly appeal for users that are increasingly tired of black and red color schemes - it basically has a (255, 255, 255) skin.

The graphics card should be an exact, bit-to-bit duplicate of the original Gaming OC and its technologies and ports, so if you want to know exactly what you're getting into, read on here. If you want an all-black design, though, stick with GALAX - Gigabyte are sticking with their black printed circuit boards.

Gigabyte's Radeon RX Vega 64 Gaming OC Custom Graphics Card Pictured

Remember previous reports that Gigabyte wouldn't be launching a custom version for AMD's RX Vega graphics cards? Always remember that facts can change, and what is true today could see itself being rendered a myth by lunchtime tomorrow. Case in point: previous reports pegged Gigabyte as skipping custom versions of AMD's RX Vega GPUs, due to both availability and manufacturing issues. However, as Videocardz reports (with pictures!), that may no longer be the case.

Apparently, Gigabyte has received a new batch of AMD RX Vega GPUs just in time for the mid-October expected release window of RX Vega custom cards, and are already at work on a Gaming OC custom version of the graphics card with a dual fan configuration (likely a revised WindForce 2X cooler). The card is expected to feature an output configuration of 3x HDMI + 3x DisplayPort, and in Videocardz image comparison, occupies slightly more space in our usual three dimensions than the AMD reference design (as expected).
