Asus has announced the ROG Strix, Dual, and Turbo cards based on the just launched NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti GPUs. These cards are now available for pre-order on major e-tail sites with prices starting from US$839 for the Dual RTX 2080 and going up to US$1,239 for the Dual RTX 2080 Ti.

NVIDIA finally revealed the new GeForce RTX GPUs and the tech community is abuzz in trying to make better sense of what's to come for games in the future. Gamescom 2018 is currently underway and NVIDIA's AIB partners are now officially revealing their GeForce RTX offerings. Asus has unveiled three new card-series for the GeForce RTX — ROG STRIX, Dual, and Turbo. The images of the cards seem to match our compilation of AIB card renders.

The ROG STRIX GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti features Asus's Auto-Extreme Technology that minimizes the soldering steps needed during manufacture and is thus, expected to result in better reliability. Both the ROG STRIX and Dual cards feature wing-blade fans and IP5X certification for dust resistance. Asus says that the fan controllers on these cards also feature a 0dB fan stop mode for reduced speeds during low workloads. Compared to the previous generations, the ROG STRIX and Dual cards now have larger heatsinks resulting in a 2.7-Slot design. The larger heatsink should provide more headroom for overclocking. 

For those starved for space inside their PC cabinet, Asus has a Turbo version of the RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti that has an 80mm dual-ball bearing fan and a new shroud design that allows for improved cooling even when two such cards are placed beside each other. 

All Asus cards can now be pre-ordered online with expected availability on September 20. We know the prices for the following cards —

  • ROG STRIX RTX 2080 8GB OC Edition — US$869.99
  • Dual RTX 2080 8GB OC Edition — US$839.99
  • Dual RTX 2080 Ti 11GB — US$1,239.99
  • Turbo RTX 2080 Ti 11GB — US$1,209.99

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
