Meh, we should stop caring how it looks. I mean it doesn't even matter if you are going to water cool it or chuck it in a case. As long as the cooler is Better in terms of efficiency at cooling. That is good enough. Besides there will be many other variants besides reference

Well most people will probably go with the non Founder Edition in any case.

The orange lines are not related to the fan on the right,they are related to the fan next to the IO bracket.

 

I know, and that fan has a plastic shroud around the blades too.

The problem is the whole cooler isn’t actually visible:  those two manilla tags cover the entire center section.  There could be all sorts of things behind them.  It’s also hard to tell what is solid and what is grillwork, and what is functional and what is facia.  If the entire thing is totally functional and all parts of the device that look like they are fins actually are it’s too expensive. There would be tons of handwork involved and these kinds of companies just don’t do that stuff.  They like assembly line production.  It also implies the card is hot hot hot which disagrees with earlier claims, so two reasons to doubt

 

Depends on the production technique, NVIDIA could have found a way to make the whole thing functional at a low cost.

 

But your right we need more data.

I did visualize it like this in my head without the render and it looks weird. Not only both fans blow into the card based on curvatures of the fan blades, they also have a closed outer ring around the fan blades. With the depth of the fan, having closed sides of the fan blades it's not a lot of room to push air to the side. Seems legit, but it's still a VERY weird design, mostly from engineering perspective because I can't see what problems is such design actually solving.

Yeah, I did the same. Found myself playing with it in Photoshop for a bit, until it looked right, and still seemed a bit weird. Once I found the render though, my original visualization conception seemed reinforced.

Instead of blowing hot air unto the card and then exhausting it,the fan at the right side will blow cool air unto the heatpipes and fins,and immediately exhaust the hot air without blowing it unto the board,increasing the efficiency of the cooler.

Yeah but the only way for it to do that is to blow the air onto the board first and i imagine that would create all kinds of static pressure issues.

I was commenting on the drawn airflow on the image. It had airflow going out sideways from the fan with orange and yellow lines, but thanks to the shroud aroud the blades it can't do that, it can only exit out the bottom of the fan.

One thing I hadn't noticed up to now is that the surround is attached to the fins, as opposed to a fixed frame like in most case fans. Still, from the image I estimate the thickness of the fan is around 1 slot worth, so you still have up to a slot worth of depth for the air to escape to the sides under the fan. Now that wouldn't leave much depth for a heatsink immediately under the fan, so that might be dedicated to lower power components that are not so high in heat production.

We care because its a very unique and interesting cooling solution for a graphics card.

We don't know yet how well it will perform but its definitely something that's worth talking about.

 

It reminds me of the Sapphire Fury Tri-X card a little bit but they put one fan on the opposite side and closed it off with a different zone for cooling from the PCB side.

And this was 3-fan card btw... so how much shorter is the PCB on the rumored pictures compared to Fury X?

You mean, like all the blower cards? Also I have a problem with fan design. They have directional blades with closed sides (like those eLoop fans). These are meant to create a column of air exiting the fan. And hitting PCB in this case. One would think regular open blades fan would be there to push air to the side after it enters the shroud.

I dont understand why they had to put the second fan on the back of the card, it would look 10x better If both fans were on the front like a traditional card. The fan would still be blowing air through the same part of the heatsink, so why did they put it on the back? (I'm not an aerodynamics expert so please enlighten me)

Also the card will be facing down for most builds, so why would they want to push hot exhaust down?

So fans on both sides of the card, but at opposite side of the ends. It's going to be interesting to see how the air flow is. Front fan blows air into the case, Rear fan blows air out?

please, AIB partners, please more cards like this (serious)

The problem with that design is that with this fin design the air will blow unto the motherboard and the side panel,

Which is not ideal due to the hot air blowing unto the motherboard,heating the area of the motherboard and heat getting trapped between the motherboard and the card...

The air is definitely not "cool" but its a common misconception to assume that the warm air will heat up other components. 

Most often than not, the "hot" air is still cooler than the components on the board so it will still cool them.

I agree that the picture of the prototype 3080 might be better than this because it pushes some of the air out the back of the case through the rear I/o slot and then reverses the fan on the other half to push the hot air down rather than up.  There’s so much that could be deceiving about those pic though it’s hard to tell for sure.  I’m not convinced this is even an inferior design.  Testing and actual eyes on the device would be what matters.

I never said that the SAPPHIRE design heats components on the motherboard,i said that it caused heat to get trapped between the motherboard and the card.

assuming normal service (no right angle card nonsense)

assuming the design is like the sapphire card

assuming a tower-style CPU cooler

 

how the heck does hot air get recirculated there? you'll need the case itself to be closed-in for that to be a problem
