Gigabyte unveils the RTX 3080 Gaming OC WaterForce WB graphics card

Gigabyte is getting ready to launch a new RTX 3080 card with a waterblock. The Gigabyte RTX 3080 Gaming OC WaterForce WB is the second RTX 3080 graphics card of this type launched by the manufacturer, but while the first one belongs to the Aorus series, this one is part of the Gigabyte Gaming series.

According to VideoCardz, the upcoming RTX 3080 Gaming OC WaterForce WB comes with 3x DisplayPorts 1.4a and 2x HDMI 2.1 ports. The card is covered by a small acrylic window with RGB lighting surrounded by a black and grey shroud. Featuring a 2-slot design, the card is powered by 2x 8-pin power connectors.

There are fewer video outputs on the Gigabyte Gaming WaterForce compared to the higher-end Aorus Xtreme WaterForce GPU. The card itself is also smaller, with a smaller PCB design and cooling block, although it does still cover the full card.

In terms of clock speeds, you can expect an 1800MHz boost speed on the GPU core out of the box, meanwhile the memory offers 19Gbps speeds. Pricing and availability details for this GPU aren't available yet but we should hear more in the next few weeks.

KitGuru says: Are you planning on building a new system with a custom water loop? Would you consider adding a Gigabyte RTX 3080 Gaming OC WaterForce WB to it?
