Gigabyte reveals four Aorus Waterforce GeForce RTX 20 series Xtreme graphics cards
Gigabyte has announced a new line-up of products based on the recently released Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti cards. There is the Aorus GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Xtreme Waterforce 11G, the Aorus GeForce RTX 2080 Xtreme Waterforce 8G, the Aorus GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Xtreme Waterforce WB 11G, and the Aorus GeForce RTX 2080 Xtreme Waterforce WB 8G.
The cards are differentiated by their memory size, chipset utilized, and whether it is a WB (water block) variant or not. There are seven video outputs available on the cards: three HDMI ports, three DisplayPorts, and one USB Type-C connector. The high-end Aorus GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Xtreme Waterforce WB 11G variant comes with 11 GB of fast GDDR6 memory with a 352-bit interface (see comparison below).
The press release does not give specific details in regard to availability or pricing, but it’s safe to say these Waterforce cards will not come cheap. The overclocked GPUs, which are based on Nvidia’s Turing architecture, also come with RGB lighting for that extra ounce of dazzle.
