GIGABYTE has announced the latest WATERFORCE lineup for the RTX 30 series graphics card with the integration of liquid leak detection.
According to the official announcement from GIGABYTE, the first 4 models getting the premium treatment will be the AORUS GeForce RTX 3090 XTREME WATERFORCE WB 24G, RTX 3080 XTREME WATERFORCE WB 10G, RTX 3090 XTREME WATERFORCE 24G, and RTX 3080 XTREME WATERFORCE 10G. The patent-pending leak detection mechanism is exclusively available on the WATERFORCE WB open-loop models which cover the entire fitting together with the water block and can promptly alert users by flashing light at the first sign of a leak, so users can deal with the leakage early and prevent any further damage to the system.
On the other hand, the standard WATERFORCE models come with an AIO cooler preconnected to the card so that even entry users can enjoy liquid cooling GPUs without the hassle of going for a custom loop system. The large copper plate directly touches the GPU, VRAM, and other critical parts. Coupled with heat pipes, the heat can be transferred to the liquid cooling zone for achieving enhanced heat dissipation. Compared to the 120mm size, the optimal 240mm aluminum radiator doubles the surface area and volume for enhanced thermal efficiency, and 2x120mm double ball bearing fans make the graphics card more stable and cooler under high overclocks.
Both the front cover and the backplate of the new-gen WATERFORCE cards feature customizable RGB illumination, and the ARGB fans can be adjusted according to users’ preference through RGB FUSION 2.0 software. Additionally, the sturdy FEP tube minimizes loss of water and has high thermal stability as well as high-pressure tolerance to greatly enhance product life and durability. The above 4 variants all come with 6 outputs (3x HDMI and 3x DisplayPort), RGB FUSION 2.0 software support, protection metal backplate, dust-proof, and moisture-proof aerospace-grade PCB coating, Ultra-Durable top-grade materials, and registered AORUS members extended warranty.
