GIGABYTE’s Aorus brand has introduced two liquid-cooled GeForce RTX 2080 Super graphics cards. The Aorus GeForce RTX 2080 Super Waterforce 8G features a hybrid closed-loop cooling system that is ready to go out of box. The Aorus GeForce RTX 2080 Super Waterforce WB 8G comes with a pre-installed water block and is designed to work with custom-built liquid cooling systems.

Both graphics cards are based on NVIDIA’s TU104 GPU with 3072 cores clocked at 1615 MHz in base mode and up to 1860 MHz in boost mode. Compared to reference NVIDIA graphics boards powered by the same chip, GIGABYTE’s Aorus GeForce RTX 2080 Super Waterforce 8G feature seven video outputs, up from five. Both graphics cards feature liquid or hybrid cooling systems that cool down the GPU, memory, and VRMs. 

The Aorus GeForce RTX 2080 Super Waterforce 8G is a dual slot video card that is equipped with a hybrid cooling system featuring a 240-mm heat sink and two fans. Being aimed at enthusiasts, the board and the cooler feature addressable RGB LEDs that can be controlled using appropriate software from GIGABYTE.

The Aorus GeForce RTX 2080 Super Waterforce WB 8 comes with a water block only and is meant for PCs with custom liquid cooling solutions. Looking extremely stylish, the water block has addressable RGB LEDs.

GIGABYTE’s retailer partners will start to sell the new graphics cards in the near future. A clear advantage of the new units is their four-year warranty, which is especially valuable in Europe where a two-year warranty for electronics is a usual thing.

    Gigabyte also released a RTX 2060 super Aorus Extreme triple RGB fan card for $450. EVGA has a open-box 2070 FTW 3 for $390 pick your poison I guess. Another great deal is the i7 8700K for $280 and 9700K for $300 and the 9900K for $450 at Micro Center. To many great deals to be broke right now. Reply

    You have to wonder what the sales numbers on video cards with pre-installed water blocks are. It often seems like manufacturer's build them for advertising purposes. Even the people I know with custom watercooling loops don't buy them, preferring GPU blocks from EK. Reply
