It is established that the upcoming NVIDIA GeForce RTX cards are going to be beasts. Rumors point to it featuring 2944 CUDA cores and 8GB GDDR6 VRAM. And the even beefier GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is coming with 4352 CUDA coores and 11GB GDDR6. We are just a few hours away from the official launch of the GeForce RTX cards, but here is a compilation of all the leaked GeForce RTX 2080 cards.


The entire range of ASUS’ designs has leaked out, with the ROG Strix triple-fan design, the aptly named Dual series and the the Turbo with the blower style cooling. The ROG Strix cards have pretty much the same aesthetics as the current generation except for a slightly more muscular appearance.

ASUS opted for full-black paint jobs across the lineup, instead of the white shrouds they used to use for the Dual series.

Apparently the same design is applied for both the GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti, so feast your eyes here.


The GAMING X TRIO and DUKE cards from MSI are not going to feature any of MSI’s signature red on their shrouds. The only red you will be seeing is from the RGB accents found on both cards.

The better looking of the two has to be the GAMING X TRIO, with the carbon fiber accents and four RGB-lit areas instead of the single strip on the DUKE.

ZOTAC Gaming

ZOTAC seems intent on pushing the ZOTAC Gaming brand they have been growing with their pre-built desktop lineup. The ZOTAC Gaming GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti cards actually look a lot more sedate than their predecessors, with black everywhere, and no RGB anywhere to be seen.

The backplate here also lacks the yellow accents that defined ZOTAC’s AMP series the GTX 10-series generation. They also tout ZOTAC Gaming’s tagline here, Live to Game instead of ZOTAC’s tagline, Push the Limit.


The new EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 XC Ultra has appeared. These cards actually look quite retro with the transparent plastic shroud, allowing you to look at the heatsink under it.

Not really a fan of the fan shroud’s look. The backplate looks pretty awesome though.


Entire product pages were leaked by PNY. With most brands using the same cooler designs for their GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti cards, this is quite refreshing. The PNY GeForce RTX 2080 XLR8 Gaming features a plainer black shroud with RGB accents beside the center fan.

Meanwhile ,the PNY GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Overclocked XLR8 Edition features what looks like a metal shroud, but it could just be plastic finished in a metallic look.


The third brand to offer a dual-fan cooler instead of the triple-fan designs everywhere, Palit goes for a rather classic look.

The Palit GeForce RTX 2080 Gaming Pro and Palit GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Gaming Pro OC pictured here feature very similar designs, aside for the gold accents on one and red accents on another.


Gigabyte appears to have taken a huge step forward. Their GeForce GTX 10-series cards looked borderline cheap with the orange accents, but the Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2080 Gaming OC looks pretty good.

Pokdepinion: I wonder which one is clocked the highest here?
