Gigabyte Announces the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Aorus WaterForce Xtreme

Back in November Gigabyte announced liquid-cooled WaterForce editions of their Aorus Xtreme GeForce RTX 20-series graphics cards. This included two for the RTX 2080 and one for the RTX 2080 Ti. The RTX 2080 had two variants, one with an AiO cooling solution and another with a full-coverage water block. The RTX 2080 Ti only received the full-coverage water block treatment. Today Gigabyte announced the AiO solution for the RTX 2080 Ti dubbed the Aorus GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Xtreme WaterForce (N208TAORUSX W-11GC).

The card features a slightly improved version of the Asetek-brand AiO closed-loop cooling solution that the RTX 2080 version has. It has a larger base-plate to draw heat away from memory and MOSFETs. The card has the same factory overclock as the full-coverage water block version with GPU Boost frequency set at 1770 MHz (vs. 1545 MHz reference). The memory is overclocked to 10140 MHz (GDDR6-effective, vs. 14000 MHz reference).

There are RGB elements on the front shroud as well as on the back-plate. There are also two 120 mm RGB fans included on the radiator. The card draws power from dual 8-pin PCI-Express power connectors. For display outputs you have three each of HDMI 2.0b and DisplayPort 1.4, and a VirtualLink port.

The card could be priced around the $1400 mark.
