As the supply date of Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 4080 approaches, makers of add-in-boards have revealed specs for his or her gadgets, revealing some fascinating particulars. For instance, this week Colourful revealed the ultimate specs of its iGame GeForce RTX 4080 16GB Neptune OC graphics card with a high-end closed loop cooling system and whole graphics energy capped at ‘simply’ 380W.
Colourful’s iGame GeForce RTX 4080 16GB Neptune OC carries Nvidia’s AD103 graphics processor with 9728 CUDA cores paired with 16GB of twenty-two.4 GT/s GDDR6X utilizing a 256-bit interface. As soon as the out-of-box single-click overclocking characteristic is utilized, the GPU can increase to 2640 MHz, about 5% sooner than Nvidia’s really useful increase clock of 2520 MHz. Nevertheless, makers of add-in-boards haven’t but enabled really excessive clocks for Ada Lovelace structure playing cards out-of-box. In any case, AD103 AIBs will probably be part of the ranks of the very best graphics playing cards for gaming this yr.
Colourful equips its GeForce RTX 4080 Neptune OC graphics card with a 22+4-phase voltage regulating module (VRM), probably extra superior than the 18+3-phase energy circuitry Nvidia used for its GeForce RTX 3090 in addition to GeForce RTX 3090 Ti Founders Version boards rated for 350W and 450W, respectively. With a VRM like this, overclocking potential of Colourful’s GeForce RTX 4080 Neptune guarantees to be important.
To make sure correct cooling of its top-of-the-line AD103-based providing, the producer equips the iGame GeForce RTX 4080 Neptune OC card with its succesful closed-loop cooling system that it additionally makes use of for its present range-topping iGame GeForce RTX 4090 Neptune OC card, which has a thermal graphics energy of 630W, notes VideoCardz. However there may be an fascinating tidbit in regards to the TGP of the iGame GeForce RTX 4080 16GB Neptune OC.
TGP of the RTX 4080 Neptune OC is capped at 380W, which is a ~19% improve over the 320W really useful by Nvidia. 380W remains to be an especially excessive TGP (larger than AMD’s Radeon RX 7900 XTX), however Colourful limiting its AD103-based providing slightly conservatively is noteworthy. Maybe, the AD103 overclocks very nicely even with no important improve in energy consumption, or perhaps Colourful simply desires to play it comparatively secure with this graphics chip.
Colourful might begin promoting its iGame GeForce RTX 4080 16GB Neptune OC on November 16, which is when different AD103-powered boards will hit the market. The pricing of the board is unclear, however since it’s a factory-overclocked product outfitted with a sophisticated VRM and an ultra-capable cooling system, don’t anticipate to purchase it at Nvidia’s MSRP of $1199.
