ASUS and Noctua have unveiled the GeForce RTX 4080 Super Noctua OC Edition graphics card as part of their ongoing collaboration. The new product is equipped with a cooling system that includes two proprietary 120mm Noctua NF-A12x25 fans with low noise and high efficiency.

In the past, the companies have already collaborated on the release of the ASUS GeForce RTX 3070 Noctua OC Edition, RTX 3080 Noctua OC Edition and RTX 4080 Noctua OC Edition graphics cards. With the release of the new GeForce RTX 4000 Super graphics cards, the manufacturers decided to continue their fruitful collaboration and introduced the GeForce RTX 4080 Super Noctua OC Edition.

The new product is based on the ASUS GeForce RTX 4080 Super TUF circuit board. The card is equipped with a dual BIOS system with “Quiet” and “Performance” operating modes. In “quiet” mode, the graphics processor of the graphics card works at a frequency of 2610 MHz, which is 90 MHz above the NVIDIA reference value. In “Performance” mode, also called “Overclocking mode”, the GPU frequency increases to 2640 MHz.


The ASUS GeForce RTX 4080 Super Noctua OC Edition cooling system includes two 120 mm Noctua fans as well as a cooler with an evaporation chamber and heat pipes. The cooling system fans have a full stop function when there is no significant load on the graphics subsystem. The thickness of the cooling system is four expansion slots. The card is equipped with two HDMI 2.1 and three DisplayPort 1.4 ports. The new product’s additional power supply comes via a 12+4-pin connector.

It should be noted that the ASUS GeForce RTX 4080 Noctua OC Edition graphics card was priced at $1649 when it went on sale in March last year, which is $450 higher than NVIDIA’s recommended price for the RTX 4080. It is possible that the GeForce RTX 4080 Super Noctua OC Edition will have the same price. At this price, the flagship and significantly more powerful GeForce RTX 4090 seems to be a more attractive choice.


GeForce RTX 4080 Super graphics cards go on sale tomorrow. It was expected that NVIDIA would lift the ban on publishing independent reviews of accelerators today, January 30, but the manufacturer decided to postpone the publication of reviews until the day sales began.
