ASUS has introduced the GeForce RTX 4080 SUPER Noctua OC Edition graphics card, designed to cater to the needs of gamers and creators. Built upon the success of its predecessors, the RTX 4080 Noctua Edition sets a new standard for near-silent operation. This achievement is attributed to a collaboration between ASUS thermal R&D and Noctua engineers, resulting in the integration of two state-of-the-art NFA12x25 fans. These fans, renowned for their efficiency, move air over an extra-large heatsink, ensuring optimal cooling without compromising on noise levels. Taking a step further, ASUS has expanded the card’s total volume to accommodate the pair of 120 mm fans, occupying 4.3 slots of space. The meticulous design of the heatsink, tuned fin density, and optimized heat pipe arrangement work seamlessly with the NF-A12x25 fans to prioritize low noise levels, a smooth acoustic signature, and high cooling performance. The card operates at a mere 27dB under full load, a testament to its efficient and quiet cooling solution.
Understanding that enthusiasts value not only performance but also aesthetics, ASUS has incorporated Noctua’s distinctive color scheme into the design of the RTX 4080 SUPER Noctua Edition. The custom brown shroud for the NFA12x25 fans, ASUS and Noctua logos adorning the front and sides, and subtle graphics on the full-length alloy backplate create a visually stunning card that seamlessly integrates with other Noctua components in a system.
To empower users to extract the maximum potential from their graphics card, ASUS introduces the latest version of GPU Tweak III software. This feature-rich application simplifies tuning for the GeForce RTX 4080 SUPER series, offering preset modes for quick optimization and the ability to set custom profiles on a game-by-game basis. One of the most exciting features is the Mobile Monitor, allowing users to connect to GPU Tweak via their phone or remote device to monitor their graphics card without overlaying on their gameplay.
The Voltage-Frequency (VF) Tuner provides fine-grained control over the clock speed curve of the GPU, ensuring a tailored performance experience. The software enhancements also include an improved on-screen display, an import/export function, and integrated GPU-Z interface for detailed graphics card information.
For those looking to pair the GeForce RTX 4080 SUPER Noctua Edition with a premium power supply, ASUS recommends the ROGThor 1000W Platinum II. This power supply is designed to complement ultra-powerful, ultra-quiet builds with its high-quality components, efficient operation, and an OLED display for real-time power draw monitoring. Aura Sync support adds a touch of RGB flair for a complete and aesthetic system setup.
ASUS GeForce RTX 4080 SUPER Noctua OC Edition will be available from ASUS retailers. The price of the same is not revealed.
