More Geforce RTX series GPUs are revealing themselves, painting a picture which seems to indicate that Nvidia’s next-generation graphics launch will occur for both reference and custom AIB partner product designs simultaneously, a rare thing for the graphics market. 

Now, several RTX 2080/2080 Ti models from ASUS have leaked online, courtesy of Videcardz, revealing a new ROG Strix cooler design from ASUS as well as high-end DUAL and Turbo series graphics cards. 

Starting off with ASUS’ new ROG Strix series RTX 2080, we can see that ASUS has redesigned the fans they use with their custom coolers, though at this time it is unknown how their design tweaks will impact the cooling performance of their upcoming RTX 20 series products. 

The fans appear to be enclosed within a circle, connecting all of the fan’s blades together, creating a more rigid frame that perhaps focuses more airflow downwards, directly into the heatsink’s aluminium fin stacks. ASUS’ ROG Strix box suggests that RGB illumination will remain similar to ASUS’ last-generation GPU offerings.

Below ASUS’ ROG Strix series we have Dual series graphics cards, which offers a dual-fan cooling solution with fan blades that are similar to what included with current-generation ROG Strix series graphics cards. 

Previously, ASUS’ Dual brand was reserved for lower-end graphics cards, GTX 1070/ RX 580 tier or lower, making this the first time that ASUS’ Dual series will be available for ultra-high-end graphics SKUs.

Last but not least, we have ASUS’ Turbo series, a cooler design that is similar to Nvidia’s reference offerings, which use a blower-style cooler to exhaust warm air directly out of the user’s system. 

Previous Turbo series designs, like most blower-style coolers, have been criticised for operating with high noise levels on high TDP graphics cards. It will be interesting to see how well blower-style coolers will cope with Nvidia’s latest GPU designs, as Turing’s maximum GPU die-size is much larger than what is currently available on Pascal series graphics cards.
