ASUS has announced its new GeForce RTX 3080 Noctua Edition GPU
ASUS and Noctua have teamed up again to bring you the quietest air-cooled GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card.
ASUS recently released its GeForce RTXTM 3080 Noctua Editiona high-performance graphics card with a dedicated premium heatsink and two Noctua NF-A12x25 PWM fans.
Noctua is a well-known brand among PC enthusiasts for its efficient yet powerful Noctua fans that provide excellent cooling without adding extra noise, and their signature color scheme is recognizable. Additionally, ASUS uses Noctua fans in the ROG Ryujin series of CPU coolers, and they collaborated on the ASUS GeForce RTX 3070 Noctua Edition graphics card due to their cutting-edge performance.
The new GeForce RTX 3080 Noctua Edition starts with a huge 2.2 slot heatsink designed by the ASUS thermal research and development team in collaboration with Noctua’s renowned engineers. The heatsink is significantly larger than the one seen even on the TUF and Strix builds, with a large fin stack connecting to six heat pipes and one massive heat sink for the GPU chip and memory, resulting in a card that is 4.1 thick slots.
ASUS and Noctua researchers undertook lengthy simulations to optimize the heatsink design to take full advantage of the air driven by both Noctua NF-A12x25 fans, resulting in the highest cooling levels at the lowest noise levels. The NF-A12x25 is the ideal choice for this collaboration as it is one of the most powerful and quietest PC fans on the market today.
Due to the wheel built with the Noctua patent Sterrox liquid crystal polymer, which reduces air leakage around the edge, its blades can be only 0.5mm from the outer frame. Noctua innovation Integrated PWM circuit with soft switching control significantly improves acoustic efficiency thanks to the Flow Acceleration Channels on the tip of each blade and Internal surface microstructures on the fan frame to further reduce noise. Anti-vibration pads in each corner prevent the fan from rattling against the heatsink or shroud, making it one of the quietest high-performance fans available today.
ASUS adopts the same unique brown shroud found on the GeForce RTX 3070 Noctua Edition to attach the fans to the card while tying the Noctua full design together beautifully. If you have additional Noctua fans and heatsinks in your system, this will match them perfectly for a unified aesthetic.
