ASUS and Noctua have collaborated in the past on video cards and will soon release a new custom model GeForce RTX 3080. Latest photos on the site VideoCardz looks very close to the previous GeForce RTX 3070 series card, which the two companies also worked on together. Of the images provided, there are minimal component settings.
Noctua and ASUS team up again to offer GeForce RTX 3080 OC with four-slot cooling
Last year, ASUS and Noctua joined forces to make a graphics card with exceptional Noctua cooling technology. The card based on the design was GeForce RTX 3070 from NVIDIA. Users were concerned that the series had been replaced as ASUS had not released any information for several months. Now they have combined their collective thoughts to offer a Noctua ASUS RTX 3080 graphics card that offers 10GB of memory. The card is based on the SKU GA102, but interestingly, only provides 10GB instead of 12GB like the model released almost five months ago.
The new ASUS GeForce RTX 3080 10GB OC graphics card offers the well-known design of the Noctua brown fan, two on the card, and four-slot cooling technology. The RTX 3070 and 3080 are the same size and have a similar format. The most significant change between the two cards is a modified heatsink to fit a larger GPU.
The card also provides two eight-pin card power connections, three DisplayPort 1.4 connections and two HDMI 2.1 connections. The board structure seems to be taken from the RTX 3080 TUF card, which is also being developed by ASUS. However, it retains more of Noctua’s aesthetics.

Previous ASUS and Noctua GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card offered Ampere streaming multiprocessors, a second-generation RT core, a third-generation Tensor core and a special heatsink from Noctua, two Noctua NF-A12x25 PWM fans, a dual BIOS switch and 0db technology.
Currently, the new graphics card from ASUS and Noctua costs almost $ 1,214, which is $ 214 more than the previous ASUS graphics card based on the RTX 3070 Noctua. No specifications or card release dates yet. We are now waiting for more information from ASUS.
