The long-awaited GeForce RTX 4000 series of graphics processors from NVIDIA is now available, and PC builders may soon purchase a new line of gaming cards, starting with the top-tier GeForce RTX 4090 24GB, RTX 4080 16GB, and RTX 4080 12GB. These cards, which are the new rulers of PC graphics, have a ton of CUDA cores, a ton of VRAM, and all the GeForce RTX capabilities required to create the best of the best. We’re bringing all three cards in ROG Strix and TUF Gaming versions to get you set up.

Stake your claim with the ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4090

The new ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4090 is the greatest gaming card money can buy if you want to make a statement. This card’s unmatched power is intended for extremely high resolutions or extremely quick refresh rates that will help you dominate the battlefield.

We prioritized cooling while designing the Strix GeForce RTX 4090 in order to get the most performance out of it. Die-cast metal makes up the card’s 3.5-slot design, which also includes the backplate, shroud, and frame. In order to prevent the PCB from drooping or warping, the ultra-rigid construction combines frames with incredibly fine tolerances, yet it still allows for unrivaled airflow through an expanded pass-through vent down the back of the 357mm long board.

The GeForce RTX 4090 is a really powerful GPU, so we wanted to do more than just use a big heatsink and a vented backplate. Therefore, we completely redesigned the heatsink, adding a new vapor chamber and 30% more heat-dissipating surface area than the ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3090.

But this isn’t your typical vapor chamber. This innovative vapor chamber design adds milling channels beneath the heatpipes to improve heat transmission. The four 8mm and three 6mm heatpipes may transmit heat more effectively to the heatsink fins because the pipes descend into the vapor chamber rather than resting flat on the surface. This powerful combination enables 5°C lower temperatures than a typical vapor chamber design when subjected to a 500W thermal load.

We have improved the Axial-tech fans, giving them a thicker design with 7 blades and complete barrier rings that deliver 19.3% more pressure and 23.8% more airflow than the ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3090’s older generation fans. With these upgrades, we were able to maintain GPU temperatures and noise levels at levels that were comparable to those of the previous generation model despite the additional power.

Speaking of power, we’ve incorporated a 12+4 phase system with 70A power stages since this game card is an absolute beast. The GPU is powered by two power stages each phase, for a total count of 24+4. The onboard digital controller provides superior power conversion and balancing for reduced noise and signal interference, as well as increased precision when sensing power. You shouldn’t have any trouble running this powerful graphics card with a decent power supply installed (like our ROG Thor 1200P2), and thanks to native 16-pin PCIe compatibility, you can do so without the need for any adapters.

All of this includes the premium features that ROG Strix cards are renowned for. When combined with Aura Sync, an ARGB taillight provides personalized illumination throughout your build, and two FanConnect II headers let you use our new GPU Tweak III program to sync the temperature of your GPU with the case fans in your computer. The Dual BIOS switch gives you the option to choose between a quieter mode and a maximum performance mode for people who don’t want to get too technical. No matter whatever mode you select, the card will be quiet at low loads because of our 0dB technology.

The Strix GeForce RTX 4090 was created using our minimally-intervened Auto-Extreme manufacturing method, much like our other ROG cards, so you can count on dependable long-term performance straight out of the box.
