Gigabyte’s Aorus GeForce RTX 2080 Super WaterForce WB 8G comes with an integrated water block
Gigabyte today announced two new GeForce RTX 2080 Super cards that are designed to run super cool. The Aorus GeForce RTX 2080 Super WaterForce WB 8G and GeForce RTX 2080 Super WaterForce 8G feature liquid cooling in a big way, boasting an integrated water block and closed-loop cooler respectively.
The WaterForce WB 8G saves you the trouble of installing a third-party water block and voiding your warranty in the process. The integrated copper water block comes with customizable RGB Fusion 2.0 lighting that you’ll be able to sync with your Aorus motherboard and other compatible devices. It also covers all the crucial components on the card, including the GPU, VRAM, and MOSFETs, so the card should be able to stay cool even when overclocked.
On top of that, Gigabyte says the PCB also uses an aerospace-grade coating that is both dust- and moisture-proof. Compared to the reference card and its 1,815MHz boost clock, the WaterForce WB card clocks higher at 1,875MHz.
In addition, the RGB lighting can be viewed from both the front and back of the card, so it’s pretty much guaranteed to be one of the more eye-catching fixtures in your build.
If you don’t intend on setting up a custom loop but still want to liquid-cool your card, there’s always the WaterForce 8G. You just need to make sure that you have space to mount the 240mm radiator, which also comes equipped with two 120mm RGB fans.
Both WaterForce cards are equipped with a whopping total of seven video outputs, comprising three HDMI 2.0b, three DisplayPort 1.4, and one USB-C output.
If you register on Gigabyte’s website within 30 days of purchase, you’ll also get an additional one year of warranty coverage, for a total of four years.
