It was disclosed that Asus will continue its collaboration with Noctuaand after the announcement of the Asus GeForce RTX 3070 Noctua Edition last year, this one we will have a Asus GeForce RTX 3080 Noctua Editionwhich basically, except for the chipset, appears to be the same GPU, as there are no visual changes to the cooling system, which is an aluminum heatsink with a special enclosure to house two 120 mm fans with the signature Noctua design.

Perhaps the most curious of all this is that Asus opted for an original GeForce RTX 3080and not the new GeForce RTX 3080 12 GB

According to the company, with the original model, at medium speed, the GPU reduces its operating noise by 15 dBAwhile at maximum speed it is reduced by 9 dBA compared to the original model, lowering the temperature by 1 ° C, so basically focused on reducing noise as much as possible maintaining thermal performance. Of course, the most important of all, the price, not a word, but it will be high.

For reference, the Asus GeForce RTX 3070 Noctua is the most expensive RTX 3070 on the market today at a price of €1,082while on the opposite side the cheaper ones are around 820 euros.
