The WINDFORCE 2X cooling system features two 100mm unique blade fans, an alternate-spinning fan, two composite copper heat pipes direct-touch GPU and 3D active fan—all together delivering an effective heat dissipation.
The GIGABYTE-patent “Alternate Spinning” is the only solution that can solve the issue of turbulent airflow that comes from having adjacent fans. Since the adjacent fans rotate in the same direction, the airflow direction becomes opposite between the fans, which will cause turbulent airflow and reduce heat dissipation efficiency. GIGABYTE turns the adjacent fans in the opposite direction, so that the airflow direction between the two fans becomes the same, reducing turbulence and enhancing airflow pressure.
Airflow is split by the triangular fan edge and guided smoothly through the 3D stripe curve on the fan surface, effectively enhancing overall airflow.
The 3D Active Fan provides semi-passive cooling, and the fans will remain off when the GPU is in a low-load or low-power game. It allows gamers to enjoy gameplay in complete silence when the system is running light or idle.
The shape of the pure-copper heat pipes maximizes the direct-contact area within the GPU, enhancing heat transfer. The heat pipes also cover the VRAM through a large metal-plate contact to ensure proper cooling.
The composite heat-pipe combines thermal conductivity and phase transition to efficiently manage the heat transfer between two solid interfaces to increase cooling capacity.
With 16.7M customizable color options and numerous lighting effects, you can choose lighting effects or synchronize with other AORUS devices.
These graphics cards use the 3+1 power-phase design to allow the MOSFET to operate at lower temperatures, while the over-temperature protection design and load balancing for each MOSFET, plus the Ultra Durable certified chokes and capacitors, provide excellent performance and longer system life. (Reference card is 2+1 power phase).
The back plate not only provides an aesthetical shape, but also enhances the structure of the graphics card to provide complete protection.
The interface and functionality of the software is subject to each model.
The cutting-edge intuitive interface allows you to adjust the clock speed, voltage, fan performance and power target in real-time according to your game’s requirements.
