ASUS and Noctua have collaborated in the past on graphics cards and will soon be releasing a new GeForce RTX 3080 custom model. Recent photos on the VideoCardz website look a lot like the previous GeForce RTX 3070 series card that the two companies also worked on. together to create. From the images provided, there are minimal adjustments to the component.
Noctua and ASUS team up again to deliver GeForce RTX 3080 OC in quad-slot cooling design
Last year, ASUS and Noctua joined forces to create a graphics card with Noctua’s exceptional cooling technology. The card based on the design was NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3070. Users were worried that the series would be replaced because ASUS hadn’t released any information for several months. Now, the two have joined their collective minds to offer the Noctua ASUS RTX 3080 graphics card, offering 10GB of memory. The card is based on the GA102 SKU but only provides 10GB instead of 12GB like the released model almost five months ago.
The new ASUS GeForce RTX 3080 10GB OC graphics card offers Noctua’s well-known two-on-card brown fan design and quad-slot cooling technology. The RTX 3070 and 3080 models look identical in size and have a similar form factor. The biggest change between the two cards is the modified heatsink to accommodate the larger GPU.
The board also provides two eight-pin connections for board power, three DisplayPort 1.4 connections, and two HDMI 2.1 connections. The structure of the card seems to be taken from the RTX 3080 TUF card that ASUS also designs. However, it retains more of the Noctua aesthetic.

The previous ASUS and Noctua GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card offered Ampere streaming multiprocessors, second-generation RT cores, third-generation Tensor cores and a bespoke heatsink from Noctua, two Noctua NF-A12x25 PWM fans, dual switch BIOS and 0db Technology.
The new graphics card from ASUS and Noctua is currently listed at nearly $1,214, a jump of $214 over ASUS’ previous RTX 3070-based Noctua graphics card. There are no specs or release dates for the card yet. We are currently awaiting information from ASUS on more information that they may be able to provide.
