Several manufacturers are preparing to release GeForce RTX 40-series graphics cards in snow-white versions at once. Zotac presented the GeForce RTX 4090 AMP Extreme AIRO White Edition and RTX 4080 AMP Extreme AIRO White Edition models, AXGaming showed a white GeForce RTX 4080 X3W, and Colorful is preparing to release the GeForce RTX 4090 iGame Lab Edition.
Zotac’s GeForce RTX 4090 and RTX 4080 AMP Extreme AIRO White Edition have the exact same specs as the original AIRO versions. The only difference is the design. For White Edition graphics cards, the cooling system covers and rear reinforcement plates are white.
A frequency of 2580 MHz is declared for the AD102 GPU of the GeForce RTX 4090 AMP Extreme AIRO White Edition. The GeForce RTX 4080 model in the same version has an AD103 GPU frequency of 2565 MHz. Keep in mind that Zotac also produces cheaper models of the Trinity series, but they have not received a new snow-white design.
AXGaming, a sub-brand of Innovision Multimedia (Inno3D), entered the gaming video card market relatively recently. The manufacturer’s range already includes a GeForce RTX 4090 X3W model in white and blue. Now the company has presented exactly the same GeForce RTX 4080 X3W externally. The novelty is produced in modifications both with and without factory overclocking.
AXGaming GeForce RTX 4080 X3W (OC) graphics cards feature massive triple fan cooling systems and require three free expansion slots in the PC case. The OC version of the graphics card received a relatively small factory overclock. The manufacturer specifies a frequency of up to 2535 MHz for its GPU – the reference value is 2508 MHz. Since overclocking is insignificant, the power consumption of the novelty does not differ from the reference consumption declared by NVIDIA for this model and is 320 W.
The presented photos of the AXGaming GeForce RTX 4080 X3W (OC) show how short the new PCB consumes. Its length is 40% less than the cooling system. A large area of holes in the graphics card reinforcement plate is designed to improve the removal of hot air from the graphics card heatsink.
According to the French publication Overclocking.com, Colorful is preparing to release a white GeForce RTX 4090 iGame Lab Edition. Detailed information about this accelerator is not yet available. It is only known that the novelty uses a cooling system from the iGame Vulcan model, but in white.
It is currently unknown what the power consumption of the GeForce RTX 4090 iGame Lab Edition model will be. The original iGame Vulcan features a fast overclock button that switches the vBIOS to OC mode and increases the maximum power consumption of the graphics card to 550W. Whether this option will be available for the iGame Lab model is still unknown.
According to the VideoCardz portal, the GeForce RTX 4090 iGame Lab model is offered in a very limited edition. The manufacturer plans to release only 200 such graphics cards. However, they are not sold outside of Asian markets.
