Outshine the Competition
The ROG Strix GeForce® RTX 2080 teams up NVIDIA®'s A-list GPU with an elite cast of specialists, setting the stage for epic gaming action. Gargantuan power delivery provides the muscle to push overlocking boundaries, while cooling that's honed to perfection keeps the spotlight squarely on Turing™'s performance. And with an arsenal of utilities that allow you to customise and tweak this extreme hardware, you call the shots.
Better, Faster, Stronger
To keep Turing™'s temperatures under tight control, we've brought a larger cooler to the table, which necessitates a more powerful and efficient fan that must maintain a whisper-quiet acoustic profile. Axial-tech meets these three design challenges by implementing our latest innovations for fan performance. We've reduced the size of the fan's hub to allow for longer blades and added a barrier ring that increases structural integrity and downward air pressure through the ROG Strix GeForce® RTX 2080's heatsink array. And we've also implemented IP5X dust resistance to seal the fan's internals from particle ingress to keeps things running smoothly. The new design allows Axial-tech fans to shift more air and spin at higher speeds without increasing noise levels.
0dB technology allows fans to stop spinning when the GPU core temperature remains below 55 Celsius, letting you enjoy light gaming in complete silence. If temps rise, the fans automatically start up again.
Sink your heat into this
This generation, our top-end cards adopt a 2.7-slot footprint to accommodate a larger heatsink because bigger is better. We've increased the overall surface area of our cooling array by over 20% compared to last gen. If you want to squeeze the most out of the ROG Strix GeForce® RTX 2080's performance, our latest design gives you a lot more thermal headroom for overclocking. If you're just looking for an amazing plug-and-play experience, the extra heat dissipation keeps your fans running at lower speeds while you game.
Precision-machined heat spreader
MaxContact is an industry-first technology that utilises precision machining to create a heat spreader surface that makes up to 2X more contact with the GPU chip, resulting in improved thermal transfer.
Precision Automated Manufacturing
All ROG Strix graphics cards are produced using Auto-Extreme Technology, an automated manufacturing process that sets new standards in the industry. Traditionally, soldering of through-hole and surface-mounted components needs to be performed in separate stages. Auto-Extreme Technology allows all soldering to be completed in a single pass, reducing thermal strain on components and avoiding the use of harsh cleaning chemicals. The end result is less environmental impact, lower manufacturing power consumption, and a more reliable product.
Our engineers have boosted the ROG Strix GeForce® RTX 2080's structural integrity by 3X with a reinforced frame that prevents excessive torsion and lateral bending of the PCB.

Outshine the competition
The ROG Strix GeForce® RTX 2080 features Aura RGB lighting on both the shroud and backplate. Get Aura Sync software to connect your compatible products for a completely customised gaming setup. You can sync to music, change colour based on temperature, or select from a large number of patterns and static options, so make sure to look out for the Aura Sync logo when you're picking parts for your build.
Be a ninja
Sometime you just want to turn off all the lights… That's why we've outfitted the ROG Strix GeForce® RTX 2080 with a convenient stealth mode button. Give it a press and you'll instantly transform from a master of the colour-verse into a stealthy ninja.
Do you prioritise low core temps or low noise levels? Performance mode will let the fans spin up to keep the card running cool all the time. Quiet mode keeps the same power target and top-end settings, but offers a less aggressive fan curve for quieter operation at medium temps. For even more customisation and control, check out our GPU Tweak II software.
ASUS FanConnect II
Smarter fan speed
ASUS FanConnect II features two 4-pin, hybrid-controlled headers that can be connected to both PWM and DC system fans for optimal system cooling. Connected fans react to GPU and CPU temperatures, so that your system is optimally cooled no matter what you do. A comprehensive set of tuning options allow you to tweak fan speeds for your preferred balance of cooling and acoustics.
