In this specific design, a standalone 8-pin power connector is indeed present. The I/O panel displays an array of display connectors, including three DisplayPort 1.4 and one HDMI 2.1 connector, facilitating 8K 60 Hz HDR transmission using a single HDMI cable. The TUF Graphics Card showcases a refined metal shroud with a brushed finish, enveloping the heatsink array. As demonstrated in the subsequent analysis, this design effectively keeps temperatures at bay.

The package includes:

  1. Collector's Card
  2. Quick Setup Guide
  3. Connection Cable
  4. TUF Graphics Card Support
  5. TUF Velcro Fastener
  6. Appreciation Card



The card comes with a ventilated backplate and a compact form factor, measuring roughly 30 cm in length. With a weight close to 1200 grams, this card can be considered heavy. The heat sink array is encompassed by a streamlined, dark shroud that effectively ensures optimal temperature regulation, as demonstrated in the subsequent section.


ASUS provides a dual BIOS feature with preconfigured quiet and performance (default) settings. Although the clock rates remain consistent in both settings, the BIOS option seems to merely modify the fan curve. Opting for silent mode slightly reduces noise while marginally increasing temperatures


While the new DP 2.1 standard has not yet been integrated, the RTX 4000 series graphics cards are equipped with HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4 ports, enabling 8K 60 Hz HDR through a solitary HDMI cable. The card's I/O panel incorporates an air vent alongside connectors and an aluminum fin stack encased within an alloy frame.


The cooling system is enhanced by a vapor chamber, ten robust heatpipes that span the board, comprehensive heatsinks, thermal pads for all crucial components, and dedicated heat pipes and heatsinks for memory modules. Consequently, temperature management is unlikely to pose any problems.
