    No word on availability? The AIO version is the model I wanted from the beginning.

    Since Nvidia stated that the 3000 series shortage will continue until 2021 I guess that you have to wait until next year...
    All these 3000 cards launches by manufacturers are useless - what kind of "launch" is this when there is no product in store.

    Where are these cards launched??? In space???

    GeForce RTX 3080 XTREME Waterforce WB 10G,
    GeForce RTX 3090 XTREME Waterforce 24G,
    GeForce RTX 3080 XTREME Waterforce 10G.

    "The above 4 variants"

    What is the difference exactly between the two variants of each 3080/3090? What is the extra "WB" mean?

    Edit: Oh I see it now - one is AIO and the other is for open-loop water.

    I see this comes with the "RGB FUSION 2.0" software. I hear an awful lot of people complaining about this - seen it use a lot of CPU continuously - is the complaints true or "fake-news"

    I was actually going to buy a Gigabyte CPU 360 liquid cooler and was put off by all the comments about bad software.

    Very nice. I might just wait for one of these 3090s since I still haven't received the EVGA 3090 FTW3 I ordered in September and there is no light in sight.

    Not really. Shows 0% CPU use here. Also, I don't have it enabled on startup and only start it when I want to change the lighting, as the lighting settings.

    I've been waiting since launch for the 3080 Aorus Xtreme. I bet you these waterforce cards don't even exist yet. :/

    If you have the patience, keep holding out. The card is insanely good.

    I'm 1100 in a queue for a Tuff OC and an EK Waterblock but if I can pick one of these up I'll cancel, hoping these cards drop within the next month,

    it's either going to be the waterforce or the Asus EK card, seriously need to upgrade my 1070 and hopefully scalpers will be less inclined to buy cards that require a loop.

    The 3080Ti will come soon and then the 3080 queues will drop as all the "must have the best" types will cancel and go onto a 3080Ti queue instead. OI know I would if I was on a 3080 pre-order queue.

    Man. Got sick of trying to wait and bit the bullet on an EVGA FTW3 ULTRA 3090 and an Optimus block!

    No information on power phases or anything. I chose not to wait.

    Even though the Aorus Xtreme cards have always been a dream for me...

    And anyone on here for liquid cooling needs EK's leak tester!! Use air and not liquid to check for leaks in fifteen minutes instead of days running blind in your tub or something.

    Seriously the best $25 I've ever spent!! Even though they're up to $40 now and still sold out from EK.
