Colorful introduced GeForce RTX 4090 and RTX 4080 in Vulcan, BattleAx and Neptune versions

After NVIDIA presented a new generation of GeForce RTX 4000 graphics accelerators, its partners began to announce new products in their performance. For example, Colorful presented the GeForce RTX 4090, GeForce RTX 4080 16GB and GeForce RTX 4080 12GB models in Vulcan and BattleAx and Neptune versions. In the future, the manufacturer will also release models in Advanced and Ultra versions.

Unfortunately, Colorful limits itself to general information about its new products and does not reveal any technical properties. Reference accelerator characteristics can be found in the previous article. Judging by the photos, the cards from Colorful turned out to be very massive. The Vulcan and BattleAx models occupy at least three expansion slots in the PC case.

One of the key features of the Colorful iGame Vulcan GeForce RTX 40 series graphics cards is a new cooling system with larger and more efficient Hurricane Scythe Blades fans that produce 55 CFM of airflow. The cooling system of the novelty goes beyond the area of ​​\u200b\u200bthe graphics card circuit board. The company notes that this approach to cooling has proven effective.

The card is equipped with a detachable magnetic digital display iGame Smart LCD with a resolution of 800 × 216 pixels – a trademark of the Vulcan series. It displays various useful information about the system in real time. If you wish, you can also display your own images, including animated ones. Your graphics card includes a display docking station. The latter is connected to it via a USB cable. Since the card is very large, the manufacturer included a bracket for the accelerator in the scope of delivery. It eliminates the risk of damaging the PCIe x16 slot on the motherboard under the weight of the graphics card.
