ASUS and Noctua labored collectively to create the ‘quietest’.

Noctua and ASUS have created an RTX 4080 that’s ‘the quietest card in its class’.
At CES 2023, ASUS and Noctua launched the RTX 4080 Noctua Version graphics playing cards, a GPU with Noctua’s signature brown and beige shade scheme that goals to be “the quietest card in its class”.
ASUS’ RTX 4080 Noctua Version enhances the corporate’s present RTX 3070 and RTX 3080 Noctua Version graphics playing cards with a brand new 4.3-slot heatsink design that features a massive vapor chamber and eight heatpipes. With these adjustments, ASIS’ RTX 4080 Noctua Version graphics card achieves the identical noise ranges because the RTX 3070 and RTX 3080 Noctua Version GPUs, whereas reaching peak GPU temperatures of below 62 levels Celsius.
Sadly, ASUS has not revealed the discharge date or value of the RTX 4080 Noctua Version graphics playing cards presently.
ASUS GeForce RTX 4080 Noctua Version features a pair of cutting-edge Noctua NF-A12x25 followers to maneuver air over a large heatsink, developed in partnership between the skilled ASUS thermal R&D crew and engineers at Noctua. Engineers have efficiently improved the fin density and warmth pipe association of the heatsink, optimizing it in keeping with the airflow traits of the NF-A12x25. To prioritize low noise ranges, a easy acoustic signature, and excessive cooling efficiency whereas making room for a pair of 120mm followers, ASUS expanded the cardboard’s total quantity to occupy 4.3 slots. The board has a Twin BIOS change and Silent mode is enabled by default to reduce noise out of the field.
The NF-A12x25 was a simple selection for this undertaking as a result of quite a few improvements packed into its 120mm body. An impeller made utilizing Noctua’s proprietary Sterrox liquid crystal polymer (LCP) has an exceptionally low coefficient of thermal enlargement, permitting the fan blades to take a seat simply 0.5mm from the outer body. This extraordinarily tight tolerance permits the NF-A12x25 followers to work extra effectively in opposition to again stress by lowering airflow leakage – excellent for a densely packed GPU blade stack. A metal-reinforced motor hub and axis additional help this extraordinarily exact hole between impeller and body.
Thus far, ASUS and Noctua have not introduced plans to create extra Noctua Version graphics playing cards based mostly on Nvidia’s RTX 4070 Ti or AMD’s RX 7900 XTX silicon, or a higher-end RTX 4090 Noctua Version graphics card.
By default ASUS’ RTX 4080 Noctua Version graphics card will help 0dB fan mode and the GPU will likely be set to “Quiet Mode”. A efficiency BIOS may even be made accessible to customers by way of a BIOS key.
