Asus reveals Noctua Nvidia RTX 4080 GPU with ’80s office vibes

Asus prepares a custom Noctua Nvidia RTX 4080 graphics card and offers us the energy of an 80s office suite. The custom GeForce GPU adheres to the standard vibe of the creators of gaming PC parts, however the mocha color scheme transforms its chunky casing into a press release piece.

The GPU scene is dominated by shades of gray, and the perfect graphics card candidates are rarely pretty. While the RGB lighting adds a rainbow splash to the grey covers, most RTX 4080 builds feature the identical brutalist design that nearly resembles scaffolding.

Announced at CES 2023The Asus RTX 4080 with Noctua infusion is a bit like visual marmite for the eyes. Some enthusiasts cannot get enough of the manufacturer’s mixture of brown and beige, but others will consider it an aesthetic nightmare. If you are sufficiently old to recollect microcomputers just like the Atari 800, this tradition color card will seem all too familiar, because it looks prefer it belongs in a leather-clad machine surrounded by hardcover books.

Of course, there’s more to Noctua coolers than a singular style, as the cardboard’s NF-A12x25 fans promise to limit peak temperatures to 63°C while keeping noise levels low. According to Asus, combining the setup with its own vapor chamber leads to “the quietest air-cooled RTX 4080 available on the market” – a daring claim we’ll should test.

In terms of specs, the Noctua Edition RTX 4080 is an overclocked card, so it’s on par with the corporate’s TUF Gaming OC variant. We’re still awaiting an ETA and suggested retail price, but it’ll probably cost greater than the Founder’s Edition featured in our Nvidia RTX 4080 review.

If you are on the lookout for a recent GeForce card but don’t need to spend greater than $1,000, you would possibly want to contemplate the Nvidia RTX 4070 Ti because it has similar DLSS 3 capabilities for lower than its Lovelace sibling.
