Based on the Turing architecture and designed to handle the graphical demands of 4K gaming, the ASUS Republic of Gamers Strix GeForce RTX 2080 Advanced Edition Graphics Card brings the power of real-time ray tracing and AI to your PC games. It also features enhanced technologies to improve the performance of VR applications, including Variable Rate Shading, Multi-View Rendering, and VRWorks Audio.
The front panel of the card features a variety of outputs. There are two DisplayPort 1.4 outputs, two HDMI 2.0b outputs, and one USB Type-C port with the VirtualLink standard. The RTX 2080 is not just about high-resolution gaming. Computationally intensive programs can utilize the GPU's 2944 cores to accelerate tasks using CUDA or other APIs.
For cooling, ASUS implemented triple Axial-tech fans. The Axial fans reduces the size of the fan's hub, which allows for longer blades and an added barrier ring that increases durability and downward air pressure through the heatsink. The fans are also rated IP5X for dust resistance. There is also Aura Sync RGB lighting on the shroud and backplate. Using Aura Sync software, you can sync the RGB lights with other ASUS products for a customized gaming setup. With Aura Sync, you can sync to music, temperature-based color changing, or select from a variety of patterns and static options.
Real-Time Ray Tracing
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX platform enables real-time ray tracing of objects and environments with physically accurate shadows, reflections, refractions, and global illumination. The RTX 2080 features 8 GigaRays per second and up to 57T RTX-OPS.
USB Type-C with VirtualLink
VirtualLink is an open industry standard that enables next-gen VR headsets to connect with PCs and other devices using a single, high-bandwidth USB Type-C connector. The Alternate Mode of USB Type-C simplifies and speeds up VR setup time, avoiding key obstacles to VR adoption. VirtualLink connects with VR headsets to simultaneously deliver four high-speed HBR3 DisplayPort lanes, which are scalable for future uses, a USB 3.1 Gen 2 data channel for supporting high-resolution cameras and sensors and provides up to 27W of power.
With a compatible motherboard and a connecting bracket, two or more NVIDIA GPUs of the same model can combine processing power using NVIDIA's Scalable Link Interface (SLI). How the cards work together can be customized to suit your preferences. Alternate frame rendering has each alternating card prepare the next frame, essentially multiplying the capabilities of a single card's maximum capable frame rate output. Each card in the configuration can also be used to improve anti-aliasing by being able to process an image in parallel with the other cards before filtering out jagged edges.
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX NVLink Bridge (sold separately) provides 50 times the available transfer bandwidth of previous technologies. Delivering smooth gameplay, it's an effective way to enjoy surround gaming and it's only compatible with the GeForce RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti graphics cards.
When used with a monitor that has G-SYNC hardware installed, the monitor's refresh rate will sync and lock with the graphics card's output frame rate. Establishing this sync removes tearing and stuttering which can result from conventional fixed screen refresh rates, especially important for gaming in stereoscopic 3D. An additional benefit of G-SYNC is reduced lag so gamers will benefit from the improved command response time as well.
