ASUS ROG Strix RTX 3090 design leaks ahead of its official launch

Today we are having an in-depth look at ASUS' ROG Strix RTX 3090 design, courtesy of GamerSky, who released details about the graphics card ahead of Nvidia's RTX 30 series embargo. 

What we can see here is a totally new design for ASUS' RTX Strix series, which offers gamers a new take on RGB, new fan designs hints that Nvidia's Ampere series of graphics cards will consume a lot more power than their predecessors. 

For starters, we know that Nvidia's ROG RTX 3090 Strix will utilise three 8-pin PCIe power connectors, forgoing the use of Nvidia's custom 12-pin PCIe power connector in favour of what is already available to consumers. 

ASUS claims that their new fan designs offer increased airflow and increased rigidity, which helps the company to increase the thermal efficiency of its latest ROG Strix graphics cards, allowing them to remain cool and quiet under load.

Details from GamerSky also suggest that Nvidia's AMpoere architecture delivers a 1.9X increase in performance per watt over their predecessors, though this remains unconfirmed. Much of this could be due to increased ray tracing or DLSS performance, which are factors which will not impact all games/applications. 

When ASUS' ROG Strix RTX 3090 is under 55 degrees, its fans can be completely stopped to enable quiet operation, which is ideal for idle or low complexity workloads. When gaming, the graphics card can handle the thermal strain thanks to its triple fan design and its vented backplate, which allows more air to travel through the heatsink than is prior Strix designs.

ASUS' ROG Strix RTX 3090 has confirmed PCIe 4.0 support and features a 2.9-slot cooler design. ASUS' custom cooling solution is designed to keep Nvidia's RTX 3090 cool and quiet under load, despite Nvidia's increased TDPs with this graphics card generation. Sadly, clock speeds of ASUS' ROG Strix models have not been confirmed at this time, though we expect to hear more about Ampere's performance soon. 

Nvidia is due to reveal RTX 3090, RTX 3080 and RTX 3070 GPU models today, all of which are due to release in the near future. You can expect to hear more about Nvidia's RTX 30 series from us soon, as Nvidia's Geforce Special Event will be starting soon.

It isn't a good looker, the cutout for the cables really do not help it's design.Quote

I original thought that but then when the cables are plugged in it will be less of an issue.Quote

I really like it, it's a MAJOR upgrade from the hideous old GTX1xxx cooler they reused for turing.Quote

I just hope ASUS rises power limit above stock. Gigabyte G1 Gaming had it on 2xxx series but migty Strix didn't even if it costed an arm and a leg.


Edit: ASUS confirmed 400W TBP on Strix cards. Awesome.
