ASUS STRIX RTX 2080 Ti White Edition – Is This The One Card To Rule Them All?!

ASUS STRIX RTX 2080 Ti, is a monster both in size and performance!

ASUS is no newcomer to the GPU game, and their ROG STRIX series of cards regularly lend themselves to extreme designs. The design or aesthetic is not the whole story, though, and there is a lot going un under the hood that is even more extreme than the nearly triple slot thick design. The custom PCB in many of the ROG cards from ASUS have VRM’s and enhancements to not only help eke out a bit more performance for everyday gamers but also are densely packed with high-quality components to serve the extreme OC enthusiast community as well.

The card we have today is based on the Nvidia flagship RTX 2080 Ti GPU. This version we have is not only the ASUS STRIX model but a limited white version that has extra points in the aesthetic column to match the needs of those looking to make a refreshing white themed build.

The ASUS STRIX RTX 2080 Ti White Edition carries a price premium for its advanced onboard tech, as you will see below.

The ASUS STRIX RTX 2080 Ti White Edition is in a very niche category as far as pricing, nearing the $1,500 mark. This price and its extreme nature are not lost upon me, but when you take into account the performance and the retail MSRP for the standard 2080 Ti FE card, it falls a bit more in line with what you would expect. In the next pages of this review, we will assess whether the extra $300 is merited by what we observe and how the card performs.
