GIGABYTE announced new GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3070 Ti series graphics cards today. GIGABYTE has launched a variety of air-cooled solutions to meet the needs of different customers. The AORUS series is recommended for the enthusiasts who want the ultimate performance and colorful RGB appearance. The GAMING OC series is the best choice of performance-minded gamers. The VISION OC series is designed for the creators who love elegant aesthetics but want to keep powerful performance. The EAGLE series is the best choice for those who desire a unique design, while maintaining both efficiency and durability.
In addition, there are AORUS XTREME all-in-one and open-loop water-cooled GeForce RTX 3080 Ti solutions. The AORUS XTREME open-loop water-cooled graphics card is design with the patent-pending “leak detection” technology. It is the best choice for gamers who want a customized style when assembling a water-cooling system computer. The AORUS XTREME all-in-one water-cooled graphics card is the best choice for gamers who want the advantages of water-cooling and easy installation.
Powered by the NVIDIA® Ampere architecture, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti deliver an incredible leap in performance and fidelity with acclaimed features such as ray tracing, NVIDIA DLSS performance-boosting AI, NVIDIA Reflex latency-reduction, NVIDIA Broadcast streaming features and additional memory that allows it to speed through the most popular creator applications as well.
The MAX-Covered cooling features three unique blade fans with a wind claw design and alternate spinning to deliver optimal airflow across the entire heatsink. The heat dissipation area of the heat-sink is larger than in the previous generation and a larger copper plate and seven composite heat-pipes enable heat from the GPU and VRAM to dissipate quickly. Coupled with GIGABYTE’s screen cooling technology, the extended heatsink fins allow air to pass through, forming an extremely efficient heat dissipation system to ensure stable operation.
A powerful LCD monitor is embedded on the side of the graphics card, which can be set to enthusiastic mode, text mode, image mode or GIF mode. With GIGABYTE software, gamers can display all kinds of content, or set the monitor to CHIBI Time mode to enjoy the changes of the little falcon logo every hour. RGB Fusion 2.0 allows gamers to not only set the lighting effects of the entire graphics card and LCD monitor, but also to synchronize the lighting with other AORUS devices. AORUS also features aerospace-grade PCB coating, a Dual BIOS with quiet operation mode and ULTRA DURABLE certified components. It is recommended for enthusiasts who want the ultimate 4k gaming performance with colorful RGB lighting.
The GIGABYTE WINDFORCE 3X cooling system features three unique blade fans, alternate spinning, a large copper plate directly touching the GPU, composite copper heat pipes and 3D active fans that work together to provide efficient heat dissipation. The middle fan spins in reverse to optimize airflow for heat dissipation, enabling more efficient performance. These cooling technologies always keep the graphics card at low temperatures, resulting in higher and more stable performance.
WINDFORCE fans utilize graphene nano lubricant, which can extend fan life by 2.1 times, delivering nearly the lifespan of the double ball bearing while providing quiet operation. RGB fusion 2.0 allows users to adjust the color of the lights and various special effects and synchronize with other AORUS devices. Due to its ULTRA DURABLE certified components, advanced cooling technology and custom RGB lighting, GAMING OC is the best choice for performance gamers.
The VISION OC series is exquisitely designed for content creators. Instead of the black and gray often used by mainstream gaming graphics cards, it adopts a more elegant silver and white, with the simple lines for embellishment. The VISION OC is very suitable to rig up an all-white PC aesthetic and offers users another choice for their graphics card. In addition, the thermal design, components, and performance are just as good as GAMING OC, thereby ensuring users can not only appreciate the aesthetics but also enjoy powerful performance and stable cooling.
The EAGLE series also features WINDFORCE cooling technology, 3D active fans, Screen cooling, and graphene nano lubricant, enabling optimal heat dissipation and computing performance. The design of the EAGLE graphics card is inspired by science-fiction with mechanical materials, a transparent cover, and a bright logo. The graphics card includes an RGB light on the side, allowing users to adjust the color of the lights and various effects through RGB fusion 2.0, and synchronize with other AORUS devices.
AORUS WATERFORCE (Only for GeForce RTX 3080 Ti)
AORUS XTREME WATERFORCE WB (open-loop) is designed with the patent-pending “Leak detection” technology. The built-in leak detection circuit covers the entire fitting and water block and can promptly alert users by flashing light at the first sign of leak, so users can deal with the leakage early and prevent any further damage to the system. AORUS provides optimal channel spacing between the micro fins for enhanced heat transfer from the GPU via stable water flows. The sunk-designed copper micro fins also shorten the heat conduction path from the GPU, so that the heat can be transferred to the water channel area quickly.
AORUS XTREME WATERFORCE (all-in-one) provides the best-of-class performance and quiet gaming experience through an easy-to-install solution. The large copper plate and heat pipes contact the GPU, VRAM and other critical parts, so that the heat can be transferred to the liquid cooling zone for achieving enhanced heat dissipation. The double size 240mm aluminum radiator with two 120mm double ball bearing fans make the graphics card more stable and cooler under high overclocks. The sturdy FEP tube minimizes loss of water and has high thermal stability as well as high pressure tolerance to greatly enhance product life and durability.
Both AORUS WATERFORCE graphics cards feature RGB fusion 2.0, aerospace-grade PCB coating and ULTRA DURABLE certified components. It is recommended for enthusiasts who want the ultimate performance, colorful RGB lighting and quiet experience.
GIGABYTE graphics cards use a multi-phase power supply, providing over-temperature protection and load balancing for each MOSFET and allowing the MOSFET to operate at a lower temperature. The ULTRA DURABLE certified chokes and capacitors provide excellent performance and longer system life. The metal back plate not only strengthens the overall structure of the graphics card, but also prevents the PCB from bending or sustaining damage.
To deliver a better user experience, AORUS and GAMING OC graphics cards provide customers with a 4-year warranty (requires online registration within 30 days of the purchase date) so that they can enjoy gaming and create content without any worry.
