Asus teamed up with Noctua, once more, to carry a different brown-and-tan-themed model of the RTX 4080 to marketplace. The 4080  already competes with the most efficient graphics playing cards, albeit at a top worth. Now we have a pattern of the Noctua card in hand and shall be reviewing it in a while, although we do not be expecting a large distinction from the vanilla RTX 4080 Founders Version in the case of efficiency — the 4080 ranks fourth in our GPU benchmarks hierarchy in rasterization, and 2d in ray tracing. As an alternative, this card is all about aesthetics and, confidently, relative silence.

Whilst the underlying {hardware} has for sure modified reasonably slightly, the brand new RTX 4080 Noctua OC Version seems just about the similar because the Asus RTX 3070 Noctua Version we reviewed final 12 months. Aside from Asus it sounds as if determined a quad-slot card wasn’t reasonably sufficiently big, so the brand new RTX 4080 Noctua measures 310 x 145 x 87.5 mm, occupying 4.3 slots price of case house. It is a excellent factor most of the people do not plug in enlargement playing cards as opposed to a GPU in this day and age, as simplest the ground slot or two on a normal ATX board would nonetheless be obtainable with this card put in — although you must check out for a PCIe riser resolution.

The entrance of the Asus field is nearly as non-descript as the cardboard itself, that includes a big clean house within the top-right. Possibly that is for long run product quotes, during which case here is one: That is the most important, brownest graphics card we have now ever reviewed! —Tom’s {Hardware}.

However severely, you are both going to take a look at this card and assume it is extremely uninteresting, or you will love the minimalist brown-themed aesthetics. Even though the scale of the cardboard is the rest however “minimum.”
