Colorful iGame GeForce RTX 4080 Super VULCAN W OC review

Introduction and Analysis

We review the Colorful iGame GeForce RTX 4080 Super VULCAN W OC, which distinguishes itself among high-end RTX 4080 models with its unique features. Notably, it includes a vivid 480 x 128-pixel LCD display, a comprehensive cooling solution, and a dual BIOS configuration. Moreover, it delivers the highest performance we've observed in a GeForce RTX 4080 Super to date. We do not have a final price for the card but MSRP it certainly won't be, this graphics card offers a bit more value and performance, it runs nearly reference aside from a 60 MHz increase (2610 MHz) on the boost frequency. This card distinguishes itself with an increased number of shader processors, resulting in slightly enhanced performance. Notably, the 4080 SUPER is priced lower than the standard 4080 model, retailing at $999. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 SUPER, a high-performance graphics card, was introduced on January 8th, 2024. This card, developed with a 5 nm manufacturing process, utilizes the AD103 graphics processor, particularly the AD103-400-A1 variant.


The GPU supports DirectX 12 Ultimate, enabling compatibility with contemporary and future gaming titles, including features like hardware-raytracing and variable-rate shading. The AD103 chip features a die area of 379 mm² and contains 45.9 billion transistors. Its architecture includes 10240 shading units, 320 texture mapping units, and 112 ROPs. The card integrates 320 tensor cores, which are instrumental in optimizing machine learning performance, along with 80 raytracing acceleration cores. Equipped with 16 GB of GDDR6X memory over a 256-bit memory interface, the GeForce RTX 4080 SUPER operates at a base frequency of 2295 MHz, boosting up to 2550 MHz. The memory clocks in at 1438 MHz, yielding an effective 23 Gbps.

Colourful's new iGame GeForce RTX 4080 SUPER Vulcan OC-W boasts a different design. The iGame series Vulcan OC-V features Colorful's Hurricane Scythe Blade, a new and better fan blade design that moves more air and creates less noise than the previous generation's Storm Chaser fan design. One of the nicest features of COLORFUL's excellent Vulcan series is an iGame Smart LCD. This revision is a magnetic display that can easily be removed. Secondly, the new iGame Smart LCD is put atop the iGame RTX 4080 SUPER Vulcan OC-W graphics card, but it may also be mounted horizontally or vertically. You connect the docked iGame Smart LCD to your computer using a USB cable. If you remove the display and set it on the dock or your desk, you can replace the iGame LCD on the graphics card with the accompanying Vulcan Lightboard (or wherever you decide to put the display). Colorful offers the Vulcan as 3.5 slot cooling! They also designed the card with a semi-passive cooling system; once the GPU warms up, the three fans begin to cool. The card has been strengthened significantly to prevent sagging. The manufacturer increased both the power consumption limit and turbo frequency. This card's 2640 MHz boost clock speed, an increased power limiter and frequency make this among the fastest products. Effectively, the memory operates at a rate of 23 Gbps. With these specifications and other high-end components in mind, it would be ideal for pairing this graphics card with a power supply of at least 750 watts. Let us get this review going, shall we? At the time of writing Colorful did not share the SRP, but realistically we feel this product can't be too far away from FE pricing, perhaps $1099-$1199
