ASUS Noctua RTX 3080 specifications
Apart from the cooling solution, there isn’t much of a change in the specifications from the normal RTX 3080. The Noctua solution is based on the ASUS TUF solution but improves upon it. Firstly it enlarges the copper base plate to cover more while including the memory. Keeping more important parts cooler as well as increasing the size of the heatsink in all dimensions.
It improves the heat transfer away and then distributes it out efficiently. Whilst also providing much more surface area to more effectively transfer it away. As well as using Noctua NF-A12x25 120mm fans on the cooler to provide much better airflow and cooling at a quieter noise level. Although put together it does create a cooling solution that is much thicker than normal coming in at 4.1 slots big.
