Gigabyte introduces Aorus Xtreme WaterForce RTX 30 series GPUs

Gigabyte has announced its RTX 30 Series Waterforce graphics cards which include the Aorus GeForce RTX 3090 Xtreme Waterforce WB 24G, the Aorus GeForce RTX 3080 Xtreme Waterforce WB 10G, the Aorus GeForce RTX 3090 Xtreme Waterforce 24G, and the Aorus GeForce RTX 3080 Xtreme Waterforce 10G.

The Waterforce WB are the world’s first water block graphics card with built-in leak detection covering the whole water block and fittings, alerting users with a light at the first sign of leakage. By detecting a leak as early as possible, it’s possible to prevent further damage to the system.

Designed for those who want to build an custom-loop cooling system, the Aorus Waterforce WB cards are more efficient at transferring the heat from the GPU thanks to the channel spacing between the “sunk-designed copper micro fins”. Additionally, the cover and backplate feature RGB lighting that users can customise to their own liking, creating a unique look to the water block.

As for the Aorus GeForce RTX 3090 and 3080 Xtreme Waterforce, these cards feature a 240mm radiator with two 120mm fans included and FEP tubing, making it the perfect choice for those who want the performance of water cooling without the hassle of an full custom-loop. The massive copper plate covers all the critical areas of the card, while the heat pipes transfer the heat to the aluminium radiator. The fans, the cover, and the backplate also feature customisable RGB lighting that users can set up on the RGB Fusion 2.0 software.

All Aorus Xtreme WaterForce RTX 30 series graphics cards feature 3x HDMI ports and 3x DisplayPorts, RGB FUSION 2.0, metal backplates, dust and moisture-proof PCB coating, and registered Aorus members extended warranty.

KitGuru says: Are you still looking for an RTX 3080 for your PC? Will you be considering a water-cooled version?
