The ASUS RTX 3080 Noctua Edition is BIG

ASUS' RTX 3080 Noctua Edition has been unveiled

With their RTX 3070 Noctua Edition graphics card, Noctua proved that they had what it takes to keep high-powered graphics cards cool and quiet under load. Now, following on from the success of their RTX 3070 model, Noctua has ASUS have created an RTX 3080 Noctua Edition GPU, once again pairing a premium Noctua heatsink and premium Noctua fans with a high-end graphics card.

The RTX 3080 Noctua Edition is a 4.1-slot behemoth, and like its RTX 3070 based predecessor, this new graphics card features two of Noctua's NF-A12x25  120mm fans.

With two NF-A12x25 fans and a tailor-made heatsink, the RTX 3080 Noctua Edition promises users high levels of airflow, minimal fan noise, and low GPU thermals. With a semi-passive fan profile and a large heatsink design, this RTX 3080 is designed to run passively under low loads and with near-inaudible noise levels under lighter workloads.

This new graphics card model from ASUS/Noctua uses Nvidia's RTX 3080 10 GB silicon, proving definitively that Nvidia has not quietly discontinued its RTX 3080 10GB in favour of their more costly 12GB model. This graphics card is currently listed with a price tag of €1,149.99 at jimms.fi, with the GPU being listed as a OC Edition model with Nvidia's LHR anti-mining technology enabled.

While this new graphics card has a form factor that is similar to its RTX 300 based counterpart, it is clear that Noctua has redesigned their custom heatsink with their new RTX 3080 model. For starters, the graphics card's rear PCB backplate showcases a large number of design differences. Sadly, it is unknown how much of an overclock this new Noctua Edition graphics card will feature, though it is probable that this new GPU will feature a dual-bios feature and come with overclocked and non-overclocked modes.

ASUS' RTX 3080 10GB Noctua Edition graphics card features two HDMI 2.1 outputs, and three DisplayPort 1.4 outputs. In this sense, this new graphics card is similar to ASUS' existing RTX 3080 TUF series GPUs, signalling that this new graphics card might feature the same PCB design.

At this time, ASUS and Noctua have not revealed any information about this new graphics card officially, though we expect both companies to reveal the existence of this new graphics card soon.

Please, Noctua, just sell standalone reference/founder compatible coolers.Quote

They already have their Chromax line, which is a lot more popular than their poop brown and vomit tan colour theme. Why not just make this all greyish/black instead and use their Chromax NF-A12x25 instead?... Would be a MUCH better looking GPU overall and have a lot more appeal to many users.Quote

How do you know they are more popular? Where's the data?

I for one don't care what it looks like. The card is face down. Won't see it. Regardless I have their brown fans and love how quiet they are even at 100%Quote

Seeing as more and more people are waiting for Chromax products from Noctua + seeing as more builds use their Chromax over their original colour scheme says enough. Not that it's technically "data", everything doesn't have data that way.

Not everyone uses a card facing down, many builds today have their cards vertically. Fair enough, looks are subjective.
Although I believe that most people would prefer to have that quietness, meanwhile having an all black fan instead of colours that doesn't go well with pretty much any other component on the market, that isn't specifically designed with Noctua's colours in mind.Quote
