New TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4090 and RTX 4080 graphics cards take your gaming PC to new heights

NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 4000 series of graphics cards has arrived. Soon, you’ll be able to build a PC with this new series of gaming cards—starting with the top-tier GeForce RTX 4090 24GB, RTX 4080 16GB, and RTX 4080 12GB. These cards boast masses of CUDA cores, wide pools of VRAM, and all the GeForce RTX features you need to build the best of the best. To get you set up, we’re bringing all three cards to the TUF Gaming family.

We’re debuting ROG Strix variants of these cards, as well. Head over to ROG to learn all about the innovative cooling technologies, including our new patented vapor chamber design, that we’re introducing to keep these high-performance models quiet and cool.

Forge ahead of the game with the TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4090

For outstanding performance with a sturdy design, the TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4090 has you covered. This 3.65-slot card is 348mm long for wide case compatibility, with excellent performance, cooling, and power management.

The TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4090 uses a die-cast unibody shroud that mates directly to an aluminum backplate to strengthen the overall structure and protect the PCB from sagging, while still offering lots of airflow. An updated 3D acrylic TUF logo along the shroud provides ARGB lighting compatible with Aura Sync, while a detachable velcro loop offers extra cable management options. A massive vent at the edge of the backplate allows even more air to flow through the fins from the larger Axial-tech fans, providing 20% more airflow than last generation’s TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3090 Ti.

We’ve also redesigned the TUF Gaming card’s cooling with a new vapor chamber for vastly improved heat transfer. Its six heatpipes—five 8mm and three 6mm—offer a huge leap in cooling potential, with 35% more contact area compared to the TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3090. You can choose between performance and quiet modes with the onboard Dual BIOS switch, or adjust the card’s performance yourself through our new GPU Tweak III software.

To provide the necessary power, the TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4090 uses the PCIe 5.0 standard’s new 16-pin power connector, which supplies a robust power delivery system, with capacitors rated for 20K and a spread of high-current power stages arranged in a 10+4 configuration. In addition, our Auto-Extreme manufacturing process offers robust longevity that lives up to the TUF name, so you can be confident your top-tier card will power through games for years to come.

Play the long game with the TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4080 16GB

Built with high performance and long-lasting durability at its core, the TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4080 16GB brings next-gen performance in a sturdy design. Compared to the TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3080, this new card boasts a die-cast unibody shroud and aluminum backplate to protect the PCB underneath, with a 3.65-slot thick heatsink for next-level cooling. That’s slightly thicker than the Strix variants of this card, but also measures more than 9mm shorter for wider case compatibility.

A trio of our Axial-tech Fans create ample airflow for this powerhouse, with the rightmost fan blowing air through a new vent along the edge of the backplate. Significantly larger than the previous generation, this vent allows for cool operation while sporting a TUF logo that spans both the backplate and the vent frame for a unique look. Underneath, an updated 3D acrylic TUF logo shines on the edge of the shroud with ARGB lighting, which can be coordinated with the rest of your PC using Aura Sync. A Dual BIOS switch lets you choose between performance and quiet modes, or get to manual tweaking with our GPU Tweak III software. If you want a high-performance card that’ll truly stand the test of time, equip the TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4080 16GB and get your boots on the ground.

Prove your mettle with the TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4080 12GB

Finally, we’re also offering a TUF Gaming variant of the GeForce RTX 4080 12GB, complete with the same powerful GPU as the Strix version with a slightly thicker heatsink and shorter card design. At 3.25 slots with our long-lasting Axial-Tech fans, you won’t be left wanting for cooling potential, while the shorter 305mm length offers the widest case compatibility of the bunch.

The unibody die-cast shroud shares the same structural strength as its larger brethren, while a wide vent on the backplate improves airflow compared to previous generation models. The 12GB TUF card also offers the same Dual BIOS switch and redesigned ARGB TUF logo along the shroud for a touch of flair, alongside the military-grade capacitors and Auto-Extreme manufacturing quality all TUF cards are known for. If you want a durable card that’ll prove its worth time and time again, the TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4080 12GB stands firm in its commitment to long-lasting gaming performance.
