ASUS x Noctua announce GeForce RTX 3080 Noctua Edition –

ASUS GeForce RTX 3080 Noctua Edition graphics card

Following the resounding success of the ASUS GeForce RTX 3070 Noctua Edition, the ASUS GeForce RTX 3080 Noctua Edition is the second graphics card featuring Noctua fans and a Noctua co-designed heatsink. By upgrading from the three original 92mm fans to two of Noctua’s award-winning NF-A12x25 120mm units and adapting the heatsink to make the most of the superior aerodynamic, thermal and acoustic performance of the TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3080 fans original from ASUS. Could be improved significantly for the Noctua Edition, making it the quietest card in its class.

“The synthesis of our custom-designed unified heatsink and Noctua’s renowned silent fan technology forges a creation that is more than the sum of its parts,” said Kent Chien (Corporate Vice President and General Manager of ASUS Multimedia Business Unit). “This inspiring partnership with a world leader in DIY PC cooling establishes a noise breakthrough for the powerful GeForce RTX 3080 Noctua Edition graphics card – and a visual style you won’t find anywhere else.”

“The response on the first Noctua Edition graphics card was simply overwhelming, so we are delighted to continue our cooperation with ASUS”, says Roland Mossig (CEO of Noctua), “The GeForce RTX 3080 with its heat emission of up to at 340W is an entirely different beast to tame than the GeForce RTX 3070, but by leveraging our fan technology and a custom heatsink, we’ve once again managed to create a card that combines serious GPU power with excellent quiet operation.

Like the ASUS GeForce RTX 3070 Noctua Edition card, the new GeForce RTX 3080 model uses Noctua’s industry-leading award-winning NF-A12x25 120mm fans and a custom-designed heatsink designed to get the most out of the fans. ‘ Superior airflow and static pressure characteristics. Compared to the ASUS TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3080, the Noctua Edition is much quieter while achieving lower GPU and memory (VRAM) temperatures.

At typical auto-speed fan settings, the Noctua Edition is 4.5 dB(A) quieter while achieving 3°C lower GPU temperatures and 14°C lower VRAM temperatures. When the fans are running at their maximum speed, as might be needed in the worst situations, such as when the board is fully loaded in poorly ventilated cases or with very high ambient temperatures, the reduction in noise levels is 8.6 dB(A) and the memory still works with 12°C less:

At medium fan speeds, the Noctua Edition improves both GPU and VRAM temperatures while running over 4dB(A) quieter. The low fan speed image is similar with slightly lower GPU temperatures, significantly reduced memory temperatures and a reduction in noise levels of 2.3 dB(A), making the already quiet ASUS TUF Gaming card even better. even quieter origin:

In summary, the Noctua edition offers lower noise levels across the entire speed range with the largest improvement of nearly 9dB(A) at maximum fan speed and 2-5dB(A) at lower speeds:

Reduced noise levels go hand in hand with lower GPU temperatures as well as substantial reductions in memory temperature down to 22°C.

The reduction in memory temperatures was made possible by changing the heatsink design from an arrangement with separate heatsinks on the VRAM to one that uses a larger copper base that not only covers the GPU but also the VRAM. In this way, via the copper base and the six heat pipes, the heat emitted by the memory chips is transferred to the same large fin stacks as the heat emitted by the GPU. Cooled by the two NF-A12x25 fans, these large heatsinks are much more efficient than the separate smaller ones used on the original design, leading to a better balance between GPU and VRAM temperatures and avoiding situations where cooling memory can become a bottleneck.

Like the GeForce RTX 3070 Noctua Edition, the GeForce RTX 3080 model features dual BIOS that allows customers to switch between a performance profile that provides the lowest GPU temperatures and a quiet profile that allows slightly higher temperatures to to achieve the best possible acoustics. To respond to requests from Noctua customers, the silent profile is set by default.

For enthusiast users who want to go further, the included ASUS GPU Tweak II software as well as the upcoming GPU Tweak III beta offer additional possibilities such as setting custom fan curves or under-voltage. By reducing the card’s thermal power, undervoltage can allow the card to run even quieter. For example, reducing the GPU voltage by around 100mV can drop GPU temperatures by several degrees and thus widen the thermal headroom to slow down the fans even further.

The GeForce RTX 3080 Noctua Edition features a semi-passive fan control configuration (ASUS 0dB technology) that can completely turn off the fans when the GPU temperature drops below 50°C. This means that in typical configurations with low to moderate ambient temperatures and well-ventilated cases, the card can run completely fanless at lower GPU loads, such as when performing office productivity tasks, web browsing, or even gaming. light. Even at high GPU loads, such as during gaming or benchmarking, the fan speed will remain extremely low as long as the ambient temperature inside the case is not excessive.

In summary, the ASUS GeForce RTX 3080 Noctua Edition is the ideal card for quiet cooling enthusiasts who demand serious GPU performance without sacrificing quiet operation.
