Inno3D RTX 2080 Ti iChill Frostbite: the graphics card with the craziest design?
It seems that there is still something to see in the world of graphics cards, everything is not lost, either for good or for bad. Let everyone judge the madness that Inno3D has done with its new design in what will be its RTX range and that will be codenamed Inno3D RTX 2080 Ti iChill Frostbite.
We say madness because it has been qualified by them when the Inno3D itself has referred to its last card. They believe that the design of their cooling system is one of the craziest and most innovative in the history of gaming graphics cards.
The player says, you do not need to choose between a two or three fan card because you can buy both options on a single card and change the cooling of that GPU according to your needs. As it slides, you can choose between two fans of 100 mm or three of 90 mm, something strange and that leaves us wanting to know more.
The card itself is a sight worth seeing, and whether or not we like it we can not deny that it goes one step further in everything. With a custom PCB and an obvious heatsink manufactured by the brand, we find a board with wide horizontal dimensions that will include a dense heatsink as far as fins are concerned but which does not seem to be too thick.
This does not prevent the card from getting a very thick overall thickness, where apparently the renders must occupy 3 slots. In addition, it shows a kind of midplate that at the moment we do not know if by mistake or design has been placed just after the fans, when it should go right after the sink, the simplest thing is to think that it is an error in the montage of the render since it would not make sense to put it there and it is something that is not seen in the other images.
It includes a backplate that at first sight seems spectacular, since not only by design but by form, it manages to reinforce the PCB by supporting it in the body of the heatsink itself.
The LED system is overwhelming, as it is crowded all over the front plate and at the same time extends along the edges, so the RGB effects have to be very spectacular.
Another curious fact is that in some of the render the NVLink port is not shown, so it is possible that Inno3D copied its design for the RTX 2080 and RTX 2070, maintaining the same PCB, dissipator and aesthetics in the three models.
As the renders let glimpse, your dissipation system will go through 4 heatpipes that will travel the body of the dissipater and will not have coolplate, so these heatpipes will be in direct contact with the die.
At the moment we do not know anything else about this GPU, nor price, nor specifications, nor date of exit, so we will have to wait for more leaks or to see it directly in our store of confidence.
