CES 2019: ASUS Unveils the ROG Matrix RTX 2080 Ti With Hybrid Cooling
ASUS has added a model new Turing-based mannequin to its vary with the ROG Matrix RTX 2080 Ti graphics card. Matrix branding is synonymous with premium, and the RTX 2080 Ti characteristic set is full of options.
What units the ROG Matrix RTX 2080 Ti aside is the usage of ASUS 'new Infinity Loop cooling cooling answer. Infinity Loop integrates a closed-circuit cooling system within the cooling jacket, which homes the pump, radiator and hoses, in a cooler with three followers. As a consequence of limitations related to jamming many elements below a seemingly regular GPU cooler, the ROG Matrix RTX 2080 Ti occupies a complete of three PCIe slots. ASUS claims that the Infinity Loop cooling answer with 120mm hybrid cooling designs outperforms the competitors and even competes with fashions with 240mm radiators.
On the again of the board is a steel carbon fiber backplane with RGB LED swaths all through the radiator, supported by the ASUS AURA Sync software program. The Infinity Loop Cooler options three Axial Tech followers and 0db expertise. That’s, when the cardboard is operated under 55 ° C, the Matrix Cooler operates passively for optimum acoustic efficiency, whereas performing gentle video games and customary duties akin to browsing the Web.
In line with a top-of-the-line product, ASUS has acknowledged that each ROG Strix RTX 2080 Ti board used undergoes an aggressive binning course of to make sure that every matrix card meets the excessive enhance core clock of 1815 MHz. That is an 11% overclocking over the usual RTX 2080 Ti Founders Version, which provides a 1635 MHz enhance core clock. The GDDR6 reminiscence of the ROG Matrix RTX 2080 Ti can also be overclocked to 1850 MHz, whereas the Founders Version mannequin has a reminiscence clock of 1750 MHz. This makes the ROG Matrix one of many quickest RTX 2080 Ti fashions available on the market.
The again of the ROG Matrix RTX 2080 Ti differs barely from the usual version of the RTX 2080 Ti Founders Version with two DisplayPort 1.four, two HDMI 2.0b, and a VirtualLink USB video output. By way of energy, the Matrix RTX 2080 Ti makes use of two Eight-pin PCIe energy inputs and a nominal energy of 300 W; 40 W greater than the RTX 2080 Ti Founder Version mannequin with an influence of 260 W.
ASUS has not but set a value for the ROG Matrix RTX 2080 Ti, however utilizing the unique Infinity Loop cooling expertise, it’s not believed to be low-cost. The ROG Matrix RTX 2080 Ti can be launched later this month.
