Gigabyte has presented six of its own versions of the graphics cards Aorus GeForce RTX 4080 Xtreme Waterforce WB, Aorus RTX 4080 Xtreme Waterforce, Aorus RTX 4080 Master, RTX 4080 Gaming, RTX 4080 Aero and RTX 4080 Eagle.
The Aorus GeForce RTX 4080 Xtreme Waterforce WB version is for those who are going to use graphics cards in a PC with a custom liquid cooling system. The accelerator is equipped with a full coverage water block that allows you to connect a graphics card to the LSS circuit.
The GPU of this version is listed as factory overclocked to 2565MHz. Remember that the maximum graphics chip reference frequency for the GeForce RTX 4080 is 2505 MHz. The dimensions of the Aorus GeForce RTX 4080 Xtreme Waterforce WB version are 235 × 169 × 29 mm.
A key feature of the Aorus GeForce RTX 4080 Xtreme Waterforce is a maintenance-free liquid cooling system with an external 360mm radiator. It is cooled by three 120mm ARGB fans. The length of the hoses connecting the LSS water block to the radiator is 460mm. Like the Aorus GeForce RTX 4080 Xtreme Waterforce WB model, the Aorus GeForce RTX 4080 Xtreme Waterforce GPU runs at 2565 MHz. The dimensions of the accelerator (without the cooler) are 236 × 146 × 40 mm.
The Aorus GeForce RTX 4080 Master model is equipped with a massive air cooling system with three 110mm fans. The dimensions of the accelerator are 357 × 163 × 75 mm. The graphics processor of the novelty was overclocked at the factory and works at a frequency of 2550 MHz. The graphics card is equipped with a small liquid crystal display that displays various information about the status of the graphics card. In addition, various animated images can be displayed on it.
The dimensions of the RTX 4080 Gaming OC version are 342×150×75mm. The graphics chip of the novelty works at a frequency of up to 2535 MHz. The accelerator is equipped with a slightly simpler air cooling system. However, it’s still very massive and includes three fans. The latter have the function of a complete stop in the absence of a load on the graphics subsystem. The company notes that the fans use a graphene nanoparticle-based lubricant, which doubles their lifespan.
The GeForce RTX 4080 Aero variant is very similar to the gaming OC model, but there is nothing superfluous and flashy in its appearance. In a minimalist design, only the RGB backlight stands out, and the graphics card itself is made in white. The cooling system is similar to the previous model. The dimensions of the Gigabyte GeForce RTX 4080 Aero graphics card are 342 × 150 × 75 mm. The GPU runs at 2535MHz, which is 30MHz faster than the reference.
The GeForce RTX 4080 Eagle model will be available with or without a slight factory overclock. In the first case, the maximum GPU frequency is declared as 2520 MHz. The graphics card received the simplest cooling system. The dimensions of the accelerator are 342 × 150 × 70 mm.
The company notes that all new products come with a dual BIOS system, and their set of external connectors includes three DisplayPort 1.4a and one HDMI 2.1. For all presented graphics cards, the manufacturer recommends using a power supply unit with a power of 850 W or more. Each accelerator comes with a four 8 pin to one 12+4 pin power adapter.
