These Custom RTX 3080, RTX 3070, RTX 3090 Cards Look AMAZING!

Who else is excited about the new 3000 ampere graphics cards from nvidia we've done a fantastic recap on everything that is new in comparison to the 2000 series rtx gpus but in today's video let's go over all the custom board partners rtx 3000 cards that we know about so far talk about their design and what to expect for reference here's the founders edition rtx 3090 3080 and 3070 with their respective specifications for size the founders audition will launch on september 14th while the

Bohr partner cards will launch on september 17th so good luck have fun there are no pre-orders planned which means supply will be extremely limited and any retailer who are selling the rtx 3000 series good luck your site will crash from what we've seen so far none of the port partners have the custom 12 pin power connector that is found on the founders edition instead we have either dual 8 pin or triple 8 pins yeah some are using custom pcbs that are

Longer than what nvidia showed off so maybe nvidia is saving the slightly shorter pcb designs for themselves that means that the power connectors are located somewhat in the general normal location instead of the smackdown in the middle as we saw with the nvidia cards unfortunately it seems like there's very little innovation when it comes to engineering new coolers for the rtx 3000 series most of them are triple fan slot massive downdraft coolers and that's it most of them are

Absolutely massive most of them are triple slot designs too except for a few really unique compact editions and water cooled models too a lot of these have not been finalized and no clock speeds have been announced but we'll publish what we can initially none of the cards will have any additional memory capacity but i wouldn't be surprised to see rtx 3080s down the line with 20 gigabytes of ram or vram or the rtx 3070s with 16 at some point and the really interesting

Pattern across many brands is that their rtx 3070 designs haven't been announced yet so a lot of them are 3080s and 3090s pricing is all still up in the air but as we saw with the rtx 2000 cards man be prepared to pay a lot more for the rtx 3000 series because the demand will be insane supply will be low alright so timestamps for each board partner can be found here and below i'll try to keep this brief let's begin i'll start with asus those seems to be the easiest ones especially the rog strix

Edition basically the rtx 3090 strix and the 3080 strix have the exact same design actually one of the more vertically compact cards that you'll see in this roundup triple fan design two and a half slot heatsink with a pretty tasteful implemented rgb strip on the side really cool industrial look but not totally overdone like past rog cards this is one of the few brands to have the triple 8 pin connectors for power and the back plate looks like it borrows

A bit from the flow through airflow design that nvidia showed off for their founders edition cards and the pcb actually looks a bit longer than nvidia s2 and judging from where the i o bracket is these are really really wide cards now asus is actually one of the few board partners who are adding two hdmi 2.1 outputs as most others have three displayport 1.48 connectors and a single hdmi 2.1 the rtx 3070 strix uses the same design too but with a few modifications like dual 8 pins instead of 3

And hdmi port mounted in the center of the i o plate the asus tough series follows in the footsteps of this tricks by using the same design for the 3090 and 3080. it's a lot more industrial looking but with a more basic heatsink design still two and a half slot card personally i love the look but in the past the tough series have received some negative feedback because of poor cooling so hopefully asus is taking that into account with

This new tough series expect the tough series to be the more affordable uh than the strix but with less features here we have the dual eight pin connectors instead of triple on the strix and no rtx 3070 announced for the top series but i'm sure that is coming later moving on to colorful and i think these guys have one of the coolest designs let's start with the neptune series and this one is linked to a 240 millimeter all the one cooler it's a compact dual slot design with a

Glowing addressable rgb led in the middle initially i thought this was a fan but it doesn't look like it is unfortunately you probably never see this in most cases when it's facing down but it would look absolutely amazing mounted vertically also it's a lot slimmer than some of the other cards with dual slot height and it also has a triple eight pin connector moving on to the vulcan series and this one is a massive triple slot card that has a really cool integrated high

Resolution led that can flip upwards when the card is mounted vertically and it's a really cool concept that can display gifs system information gpu temperature and whatever it's really all about the showcase and i'm hoping that the led is going to be of high quality and as for the cooling solution we have two 90 miller fans and one 80 mm moving on to the advanced series and this one should be called go big or go home we have a really cool centered mounted fan with rgb

It actually looks good without being too flashy it is a very large card that looks to be bigger than the three slot width and the interesting thing here is that colorful is not using the flow through backplate design like you'll see with majority of other board partners the ultra series this one's massive at almost 13 inches and this is one of the longest rtx 3000 cards that we've seen and it's still a triple slot card one thing i like here is that all colorful cards will come with an

Anti-sag bracket and this one is certainly colorful with that large rgb panel on the heatsink shroud which will unfortunately go pretty much unnoticed in most situations and finally we have the nb series which is meant to compete against other entry-level rtx 3000 cards it's a pretty basic design that's also compact at two and a half slots and it should also be under 12 inches despite what the perspective photos look like moving on to evga and this 100 will be

Polarizing evga has made some changes on how blingy their cards look now whereas before they were subdued muted kind of clean looking now it's exactly the opposite and like a lot of other board partners the design for the rtx 3090 and 3080 will be identical let's begin with the ftw3 and oh my god did they go full rgb on here we have this gigantic addressable section at the top and i think it might look pretty good provided it's a solid color

And you can turn down the brightness a little bit but one weird design decision is that we have this swooping shroud that ends in this lipstick red outline near the end it kind of looks weird and this red strip extends onto the back plate where there is an illuminated evga logo i love that the back plate is fully perforated that matches the design of the shroud and it's one of the shorter cards in this video at 11.81 inches but it's very tall and it's wider than

Triple slot moving on to the xc3 ultra luckily the rtx 3090 ultra card will take a step back from all the rgb it's a pretty basic heatsink design with three fans and 11.25 inch length and the standard width still an rgb evga logo on the side along with three eight pin power connectors the xc3 version of the rtx 3080 and the 3070 are identical but use dual 8-pin power connectors instead of 3. they also have a water-cooled kingpin edition of the rtx 3090 which is

Incredibly exciting and a hybrid edition of both the 3090 and the rtx 3080. moving on to auris and this is by far the largest card in this roundup it is a massive quad slot unit it will probably look really odd inside the enclosure i mean that side profile looks pretty ridiculous and for sure these cards will require some sort of anti-sag mechanism we have master and extreme editions both with an identical heatsink and a triple fan layout

With a flow-through style at the back of the card and some visible branding peeking through the back plate the lighting accents look awesome that spill onto the fan blades and we even have a gpu temperature reading all the way at the back that should be perfectly visible in horizontal and vertical orientations the io here is quite different versus other cards with three hdmi 2.1 and three display port 1.4 a and it looks like both the extreme and master editions of the rtx 3090

And 3080 will have dual 8 pin for power so i'm really curious to see what the advantages are for the triple a pin for power on some other cards on like the 30 80 in the 30 90. as for the gigabyte branded cards both the eagle and gaming editions are quite blocky with a really tall shroud and an almost triple slot design more silver accents on the gaming card but to be honest both are kind of underwhelming the rear portion of the backplate is

Open for airflow and the dual 18 power connectors are all the way back here as well with a standard i o layout for both the rtx 3080 and 3090. moving on to zotac it seems like they're continuing their domination in the compact space as the rtx 3070 is super cute and is only 9.1 inches in length making it the smallest 3000 series card as of yet it's a dual slot design with three displayport 1.4 a and a single hdmi 2.1 the shroud shape

And the back plate reminds me of the combine train from half-life just because it's so tall and thin and it will require two eight pin power connectors moving on to the rtx 3080 and 3090 they are triple slot in width long at 12.5 inches but are only slightly taller than the pci slot because of the illuminated bits in the middle there's only the color distinction between the shrouds with the 3090 being slightly lighter but with the same triple fan cooling

Solution the dual 8 pins for power is in line with the rgb logo and as you probably have noticed by now only the rtx 3090 cards have the envylink bridge whereas both the 3080 and the 3070 do not from everything we've seen so far this is my favorite design as of yet i think because i really like the gray instead of the traditional black and it's not overly the top in terms of bling the options from msi include the gaming x trio which is the flagship model for both the rtx 3090 and 3080 and i personally have been using the

Gaming x trio with the 2080 ti model which is awesome and then there's the ventus 3x skus that have similar triple fan shroud but with less bling and finally let's finish off with galax they all look kind of generic with a triple fan illuminated cooler and a cringy question up top i don't get it perhaps the most unique part of this card is the extra exhaust fan that you can mount at the back with this clip in system which is included on the 3080 and 3090 but not on the 3070 models

I'm all for extra cooling performance but the card is already quite chunky with the triple slot design so the fan will book it up even more and as with many others dual 8 pins is offset near the center of the card and overlap with the extra fan so something to keep in mind and design wise this is my least favorite card but the extra cooling might be beneficial and give this card an advantage so those are all the cards that we have found so far to me personally i still find

The founders edition to be the most unique in terms of cooler design giving us something different but let us know which one was your favorite based on everything that we covered in this video as always i appreciate your subscription thanks much for watching check out this other relevant content subscribe for more i'll talk to you in the next video wait i can't wait to get myself on the rtx 3080

And i was thinking of buying an imac
