Zotac announces Zotac Gaming GeForce RTX 2080 Ti ArcticStorm graphics card with fitted waterblock
Zotac has launched the Zotac Gaming GeForce RTX 2080 Ti ArcticStorm graphics card. The GPU comes with a large waterblock that covers the card, offering gamers an important component for an enhanced liquid cooling solution. The Macau-based manufacturer claims the most crucial parts of the graphics card are in contact with the liquid channel to aid with cooling.
Zotac has assembled the Gaming GeForce RTX 2080 Ti ArcticStorm with commonly used fittings so that users can connect a wide range of compatible parts to complete the liquid cooling system. The GPU also comes with configurable lighting effects that can be either animated (“Rainbow,” “Dance,” etc.) or standard (“Fade,” “Static,” etc.).
Unsurprisingly, the Gaming GeForce RTX 2080 Ti ArcticStorm delivers the impressive specifications a user can expect from the high-end Turing-based Nvidia card: 4352 shaders, 11 GB GDDR6 memory, 352-bit bus width. The Zotac specifications describe a 1575 MHz boost clock, which is slightly over the specified 1545 MHz that Nvidia mentions.

HONG KONG – February 18, 2019 - ZOTAC Technology, a global manufacturer of innovation is pleased to announce the launch of the ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX™ 2080 Ti ArcticStorm graphics card. Get the best of both worlds with the all-new water blocked graphics card packing the ultimate 2080 Ti performance with 16+4 power phases combined with fearless cooling.
Continuing to push on design and innovation, the full coverage waterblock introduces a precision machine laser etched design entirely new to the design process. The carved edges and added texture bring dimension to the clear acrylic block and enables it to catch the lighting lit across the block beautifully to enhance the overall design in a very discrete, elegant fashion.
The lighting gets updated to SPECTRA 2.0, bringing with it more powerful Addressable RGB LEDs controllable with the newly designed FireStorm software. Adjust brightness and lighting modes on two independent zones or synchronize them together in unison lighting. With an onboard memory, your preferred lighting settings will stay whether the system restarts or shuts down.
The ArcticStorm waterblock utilizes a direct nickel plated copper cold block contact with precision 0.3mm micro-channels for maximum heat extraction supported by a metal backplate. Equipped with the standard G 1/4 threaded fittings placed in back-to-back horizontal alignment, the ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX™ 2080 Ti ArcticStorm is compatible with a wide range of liquid cooling solutions already available on the market. A pair of barbs supporting 10mm ID tubing are also included.
