AORUS All-Around Cooling Solution
AORUS provides the all-around cooling solution for all key components of the graphics card. We take care not only GPU but also VRAM and MOSFET, to ensure a stable overclock operation and longer life. On the front side, the large copper base plate dissipates the most heat from the GPU and VRAM. On the back side, the copper back plate dissipates the heat from the GPU back side. All other key components are taken care of very well by the WATERFORCE cooling module. AORUS ensures the customer a better cooling solution in many ways.
• Copper Back Plate.
• Front Copper Base Plate.
WATERFORCE with All-In-One Cooling System
The WATERFORCE all-in-one cooling system is a pre-assembled and pre-filled liquid solution that provides the easiest way for installation. The optimized pump and water block deliver the most efficient water flow and cooling performance at a lower noise level.
Large Copper Base Plate
With direct contact to the GPU, VRAM and all critical components, the large copper base plate efficiently transfer heat generated from the interior cores to the liquid.
Advanced Copper Back Plate Cooling
Excessive heat from GPU not only gets dissipated utilizing the massive cooling module in the front but also through the back side with a copper plate, providing a well-rounded thermal solution for the GPU.
AORUS Cooling: WATERFORCE Cooling System
• Aluminium Radiator: Built in 120mm black aluminium radiator help to dissipate the heat efficiently.
• 120mm Unique Blade Fan Design: The 120mm dynamic adjusting fan provides the silent operation. The airflow is spilt by the triangle fan edge, and guided smoothly through the 3D stripe curve on the fan surface, effectively enhancing the airflow by 23% over the traditional fans.
• Double Ball Bearing Structure: The double ball bearing structure has better heat endurance and efficiency than sleeve structure. Hence it will provide longer life time.
• Braided FEP Tubes: With nearly no moisture absorption, high thermal stability and high pressure tolerance, the sturdy FEP tubes greatly enhance product life and durability.
With 16.8M customizable colour options and numerous lighting effects, you could now choose the right scheme for your gaming rig through AORUS graphics engine.
• Cycling: Smoothly cycles through all colours.
• Consistent: Static lighting of selected colour.
• Flash: Flash effect of selected colour.
• Dual Flash: Double flash effect of selected colour.
• Breathing: Fades in and out of selected colour.
AORUS VR Link: So Easy to VR
AORUS VR Link features 1 extra front-facing and 2 rear HDMI ports, letting you connect a VR device and up to 2 HDMI monitors at the same time without having to swap cables, so you can flexibly set up a display configuration that best fits your gaming needs.
Multi Display Configuration Support
AORUS VR Link is the only output technology in the market that supports the following combinations of displays without any adaptors required. (VR Headsets are connected via HDMI)
AORUS Excellence: Premium Build in Every Aspect
Protection Metal Back Plate
Glorious black metal back plate provides the solid protection, strengthens the structure and inspires the passion for gaming.
Aerospace-Grade PCB Coating For Best Protection
Dust-resistant shields the circuit board from dust, insects, dropped screws, drill shavings, and abrasion. Moisture-resistant prevents unwanted conduction paths and board damage. Corrosion-resistant protects boards from environmental contaminants, such as salt spray, humidity, and corrosion.
LED Power Indicators to Show If the PCI-E Voltage from PSU Is Stable
Be alert when PCI-E voltage is unstable with the smart power LED indicators. When experiencing any power abnormality, the indicator will alert gamers by flashing light.
Built for Extreme Overclocking with 12+2 Power Phases
Compared to the reference design, the 12+2 power phases on the card make the MOSFET working at a lower temperature and provide more stable voltage output. Over temperature protection and load balance to each MOSFET can effectively extend the card life.
Titan X-Grade Chokes and Capacitors for Extreme Durability
AORUS Graphics Cards are engineered with the same highest-grade chokes and capacitors as those of Titan X, delivering high quality performance and longer system lifespan.
Boost Game Performance via SLI Technology
Supports for 2-way SLI configuration, AORUS SLI HB(High Bandwidth) bridge doubles the available transfer bandwidth bridge compared to the previous generation to deliver ultimate experience at 4K gameplay or surround gaming. The AORUS SLI bridge features 16.8M customizable colour lighting and numerous effects, you could also synchronize the lighting with the graphics cards through AORUS Engine utility.
Friendly PCB Design Thanks to Fully Automated Production Process
Fully automated production process ensures top quality of the circuit boards and eliminates sharp protrusions of the solder connectors seen on the conventional PCB surface. This friendly design prevents your hands from getting cut or inadvertently damaging components when making your build.
Quality Is Our Top Priority
