Gigabyte has updated its Aorus external GPU shell to use the latest member of the NVIDIA GeForce series-RTX 3080 Ti graphics card. Aorus RTX 3080 Ti Game Box (GV-N308TIXEB-12GD) Is designed to provide the best performance for all GPU-accelerated workloads.
The company already provides this Aorus external GPU enclosure for GeForce RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 cards, but this update will complete the product portfolio and fill the gap between the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 models.
This external GPU is based on the conventional GA102-225 chip and has a factory stock clock speed. This means a base frequency of 1365 MHz and a boost speed of 1665 MHz, so there is no factory overclocking applied here. GDDR6X memory also runs at a reference clock speed of 19 Gbps.
The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti GPU is cooled by Gigabyte’s customized water cooling solution. It has a copper heat sink covering VRM, MOSFET, memory and GPU chips. The water is transferred to a 240mm radiator, which is cooled by two 120mm fans with dual bearings.
The Thunderbolt 3 port connects the system to the GPU. By connecting it to a laptop, you can get an additional Ethernet port and two USB 3.0 Type-A ports (two on the back and one on the front). Of course, the Aorus RTX 3080 Ti Gaming Box also has video output; two HDMI 2.1 ports and three DisplayPort 1.4 ports. The entire system is powered by 80-Plus Gold 550W power supply.
