Gigabyte has recently launch their AORUS RTX 30 Series Graphics Cards . Four of these are made available globally – AORUS GeForce RTX 3090 XTREME 24G, AORUS GeForce RTX 3090 MASTER 24G, AORUS GeForce RTX 3080 XTREME 10G, and AORUS GeForce RTX 3080 MASTER 10G. These four graphics cards are all equipped with top-of-the-line overclocked GPU that is certified by Gigabyte Gauntlet sorting technology. Gigabyte releases a new generation of more advanced MAX-COVERED cooling technology to address high wattage cooling requirements of the RTX 30 GPUs. Also an LCD monitor is embedded on the side of the graphics card, which displays the status of the GPU, view customized GIFs, text, or picture. RGB Fusion 2.0 is present, allowing for users to customize lighting effects of the entire graphics card.
AORUS RTX 30 Series Max-Covered Design Features
The Max-Covered cooling features 2x 115mm and 1x 100mm unique blade stacked fans with wind claw design, and alternate spinning blades. The alternate blade spin ensures air pressure covers the entire heatsink. The heatsink design allows for a bigger dissipation area, making it twice as big as the previous AORUS design. There are 7 composite heat pipes connecting to the copper vapor chamber, dissipating heat from the GPU and VRAM quickly. This is in part of Gigabyte’s Screen Cooling Technology that has extended fins to allow airflow to pass through.
AORUS includes a powerful LCD monitor in the side of the GPU. We can set the monitor to: enthusiastic mode, text mode, image mode or GIF mode. Through software, we can edit various content to our liking. We can also set the LCD monitor to “CHIBI Time”, therefore; letting us observe of the XTREME robot every hour. RGB Fusion 2.0 allows us to set the lighting effects of the entire graphics card and LCD monitor.
AORUS is the only graphics card in the market that offers 6 video outputs in the GeForce RTX 30 series. There are 3 HDMI and 3 DP outputs for users to plug their monitors in. Compared to the reference card, this increases total output devices by 2, without requiring additional adapters. A “Dual BIOS” switch is included. It allows users to switch between profiles. One for low noise performance and the other being normal.
ULTRA Durable certified components are in the GPU. AORUS applies an Aerospace grade PCB coating design to prevent moisture, dust and corrosion. GPU build utilizes fully automated construction. A 4-year warranty is also provided; given the user has 30 days to register upon purchase. Having a long warranty allows us to enjoy the GPU without worry. AORUS includes a limited edition “Xtreme robot” with the “XTREME” version as a bonus.
