Asus reveals ROG Matrix GeForce RTX 4090 with liquid metal cooling

Asus has announced the world's first mass-produced graphics card using liquid metal on the GPU, the ROG Matrix GeForce RTX 4090. Thanks to its impressive cooling solution, it boasts the highest out-of-the-box boost clocks of any RTX 4090 card on the market today.

Drawing from their expertise in liquid metal technology gained through their ROG laptop division, Asus has developed an exclusive production process for the ROG Matrix GeForce RTX 4090. By incorporating UV resin and protective layers between the die and the main PCB, the manufacturer ensures that the liquid metal remains securely contained without any risk of leakage.

 

To complement the liquid metal cooling solution, the ROG Matrix GeForce RTX 4090 includes a custom 360mm radiator and three ROG MF-12S ARGB fans. The fans can be daisy-chained using a magnetic connector, simplifying installation and cable management. With high-static pressure and airflow, these fans effectively keep the ROG Matrix GeForce RTX 4090 operating at a cool 60°C under its 450-watt TGP. The need for an auxiliary fan is eliminated thanks to the custom full-coverage cold plate, which makes contact with all heat-producing components on the PCB.

The design of the ROG Matrix RTX 4090 is a testament to its flagship status. The GPU frame and housing are constructed entirely of metal, giving it a modern appearance. It incorporates indirect ASUS Aura Lighting and a distinctive ‘hollow' chamber enclosed by a larger aluminium frame to protect the main cold plate, circuit board, and pump shroud.

The ROG Matrix RTX 4090 also supports software features like Power Detector+, which enables the card to detect any anomalies with the power pins individually, and the Mileage feature, which tracks card usage across various power levels. In addition to the typical temperature sensors found on GPUs, this card incorporates additional sensors across the VRMs, chokes, and power input circuitry. These sensors provide real-time thermal data, which can be monitored using the new Thermal Map feature in the ASUS GPU Tweak III app. Lastly, a Dual BIOS switch lets users switch between Quiet and Performance modes.

Kitguru says: What do you all think of the ROG Matrix RTX 4090? How much more do you think it'll end up costing compared to a standard version?
