ASUS has announced four brand-new GeForce RTX 40 Series graphics cards with eye-catching, all-white paint jobs in the form of the ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4090 White Edition, ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4090 OC White Edition, ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4080 White Edition, and ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4080 OC White Edition, all of which feature an overbuilt cooling system that stays nearly silent even at full load, according to ASUS.
ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4090 White Edition
DIY PC building is all about personal taste when selecting components, and the brand-new ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4090 White Edition and ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4090 OC White Edition give discerning builders the option to brighten up a build, or color coordinate with other ROG peripherals like the ROG Strix Scope NX TKL Moonlight White and peripherals. Boasting 16,384 CUDA cores and 24GB of GDDR6X VRAM, these cards are welcome in simulation rigs, high-end streaming PCs, and professional production machines alike.
Just like the standard ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4090, the White Edition is a 3.5 slot card that focuses extensively on cooling performance. A die-cast metal frame, shroud, and backplate provide rigidity for the massive vapor chamber and heatsink that provides 30% more surface area for heat dissipation than the ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3090. Featuring a patented milled vapor chamber design, under a 500W thermal load the Strix GeForce RTX 4090 White Edition offers 5°C cooler temperatures than a traditional vapor chamber.
Upgraded Axial-tech fans have been thickened and now provide 23.8% more airflow and 19.3% more pressure than the previous generation. These improvements allow the card to maintain similar GPU temperatures and acoustics to the previous generation model, despite the extra power. ROG Strix cards bundle a host of advanced features with that high-end performance as well. An ARGB tail-light works with Aura Sync to offer customized lighting across your build, two FanConnect II headers, a Dual BIOS switch, and 0dB technology give you flexibility and performance to make the card fit seamlessly into your build.
Finally, like our other ROG cards, the Strix GeForce RTX 4090 White Edition was built with our Auto-Extreme manufacturing process that minimizes human intervention, so you can expect reliable long-term performance right out of the box.
ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4080 White Edition
Not to be outdone, the ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4080 White Edition and ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4080 OC White Edition have also joined the party. These cards share the same robust power delivery, vapor chamber, and Axial-tech fan design of the Strix GeForce RTX 4090, letting this card flex its full power without breaking a sweat. The same distinctive RGB accoutrements and ROG styling adorn the cards, giving builders more options than ever to bring their creativity to life. Featuring 9,728 CUDA cores and 16GB of GDDR6X VRAM, the ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4080 White Edition is a truly enthusiast GPU, capable of high-resolution and refresh-rate gaming, without compromise.
ASUS did not provide pricing information for these GPUs in its article, but the ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4090 and ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4080 are listed for $1,949.99 and $1,499.99 on its website, respectively.
