A new watercooled card from Zotac! The firm is now shipping its ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 3090 ArcticStorm. The new model has an RGB LED backlit waterblock and uses a dual-slot design with a width of 25.9mm. The watercooling solution uses standard G 1/4" fittings and the card has a metal backplate. The card has 16+4 phase power design. So what about the clockspeeds? Zotac shares the card has a 1695MHz Boost and 24GB GDDR6X memory clocked at 19.5Gbps. Pricing and availability is unknown, but street prices will most likely be very high while availability is bound to be very low.
ZOTAC Technology Limited, a global manufacturer of innovation, today releases the all-new ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX™ 3090 ArcticStorm built to take on the GeForce RTX 30 Series GPUs powered by the NVIDIA Ampere architecture. Equipped with a full-cover factory waterblock, enhanced RT Cores and Tensor Cores, new streaming multiprocessors, and superfast memory, ArcticStorm brings fearless cooling to the world’s most powerful GPU for full throttle performance.

Derived From Award-Winning Design
ArcticStorm bares the characteristics of the award winning designs from the AMP Holo series comprising of gaming, futurism and minimalism. The waterblock utilizes precision guided laser etching with carved paths and added texture to bring dimension to the clear acrylic block, enabling it to catch the lighting to enhance the overall design discretely, beautifully, and elegantly.

Fearless Cooling
A maximum flow path has been carved out to cover key components with a nickel plated copper cold plate making direct contact with the GPU. At the center of the flow path lies a 0.3mm micro-channel core to maximize heat extraction. The anodized aluminum waterblock brings full coverage, spanning the entire length of the board and making contact with the most critical components including GPU, memory and VRM via premium thermal pads to supercharge heat transfer.

Slim Profile
ArcticStorm waterblock utilizes a dual slot PCI bracket while only measuring 25.9mm in width. With its width thinner than the PCI bracket, the design increases flexibility for building in compact solutions.

Unparalleled Stability
A 16+4 power phase design means that no one power phase is overworked and building up too much heat. More distribution of power brings more stability. The POWERBOOST control chip also provides live electrical current regulation and instant electrical deviation responses to reduce ripple noise, minimize power fluctuations, and increase temperature tolerance for lasting performance and additional stability.

Dynamic RGB Lighting
Individually addressable RGB LEDs and selectable modes powered by the SPECTRA 2.0 lighting system make the ArcticStorm design shine ever more sharply. Take advantage of the FireStorm Utility to adjust brightness and lighting modes on independent zones, synchronize them together in unison lighting, or create a synced ambient lighting with an external RGB LED strip via the featured 3-pin RGB header.

Standard Fittings
ArcticStorm uses the standardized and most used fitting, G 1/4 inlet and outlet ports on top, for flexible installation and a wide selection of liquid cooling hardware compatibility. Two sealing barbs are included to support 10mm inner diameter tubing.
