Asus RTX 4090 Variants
ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4090
The Asus Strix RTX 4090 comes with a new design and aggressive gamer aesthetic. The design is rounded off similar to XFX models that we have seen in the past and I for one really like the new look. The card has a 3.5-slot design and a die-cast metal frame. It comes with a backplate, which is expected from a premium graphics card such as this. It is pretty large at 357mm long.
The graphics card features a 12+4 phase system comprising 70A power stages. Asus recommends using the ROG Thor 1200P2 power supply with the card. There is a BIOS switch on the card that allows users to switch between performance and quiet modes.
TUF GeForce RTX 4090
The TUF cards are supposed to be relatively cheaper. So there is little surprise that Asus has gone with a familiar design. The card comes with a triple fan cooler and there is minimal RGB lighting.
This is a chunky card and has a 3.65 slot design and is 348mm long. The card comes with a die-cast unibody shroud and an aluminum backplate. The backplate has cutouts for better heat dissipation.
The card has 5x 8mm heatpipes and 3x 6mm heatpipies which Asus claims increase contact area by 35% compared to the 3090 model. There is a BIOS switch on the card that allows users to switch between performance and quiet modes.
Asus RTX 4080 Variants
While Asus has not revealed the RTX 4080 variants, I think they should be similar to the ones that we have seen above. Asus has confirmed the models which are as follows:
- ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4080 16GB
- ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4080 12GB
- TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4080 16GB
- TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4080 12GB
