ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) is proud to announce the highly anticipated ROG Matrix GeForce RTX 4090, setting a new standard in performance and innovation. This cutting-edge graphics card boasts the highest out-of-the-box boost clocks of any RTX 4090 in the world. What sets it apart even further is the inclusion of a liquid metal thermal compound, a first-ever feature on a graphics card from ROG.
ASUS Republic of Gamers Unveils ROG Matrix GeForce RTX 4090 with Liquid Metal Cooling – World’s first graphics card to have liquid metal on the GPU, with premium ROG liquid cooling to create the world’s highest boost clocks for a GeForce RTX 4090 card
The ROG Matrix GeForce RTX 4090 utilizes a custom-engineered cold plate that not only dissipates heat from the GPU die but also effectively cools the VRMs and memory chips. This unique design allows for extended periods of high clock speeds, enabling ROG to carefully select only the finest dies for this extraordinary flagship graphics card.
At the forefront of gaming power, liquid metal thermal compound proves their superiority by significantly reducing temperatures compared to traditional thermal pastes. However, its electrical conductivity poses a challenge. Leveraging their expertise in liquid metal applications from the ROG laptop division, ASUS has developed an exclusive production process that safely harnesses the thermal transfer capabilities of liquid metal while ensuring compatibility with vertical GPU mounting.
To achieve this, ASUS applies a UV resin above the surface-mounted capacitors surrounding the GPU die and incorporates two additional protective layers between the die and the main PCB. This meticulous engineering guarantees that the ROG Matrix GeForce RTX 4090 can benefit from the exceptional thermal performance of liquid metal without any risk of leakage. Having perfected these protective measures, ASUS is thrilled to introduce liquid metal to the esteemed ROG graphics card lineup, and the Matrix series proves to be the perfect choice for this breakthrough technology. More information about liquid metal can be found here.
Liquid metal is just one element in the comprehensive cooling solution implemented in the ROG Matrix GeForce RTX 4090. The card features a custom-designed, extra-thick 360 mm radiator complemented by three ROG MF-12S ARGB fans. These fans are daisy-chainable and connect seamlessly through a magnetic connector, consolidating control signals and power into a single cable. Users can enjoy effortless installation, cable management, and synchronized ARGB lighting effects. With high-static pressure and airflow, the fans effectively maintain the ROG Matrix GeForce RTX 4090‘s operating temperature at just 60°C under its 450-watt TGP. Impressively, the fan RPM remains under 1000, ensuring a whisper-quiet gaming experience.
Unlike most AIO liquid-cooled GPUs that require an auxiliary fan to cool surface-mounted components in addition to the radiator fans, the ROG Matrix RTX 4090 eliminates this need. Its custom full-coverage cold plate makes direct contact with all heat-generating components on the PCB, enabling the radiator to independently cool the entire card. The inclusion of a customized and more powerful pump ensures optimal coolant circulation, maintaining peak efficiency at all times.
In terms of design, the ROG Matrix RTX 4090 showcases a striking and contemporary aesthetic with its full-metal GPU frame and housing. It introduces the first application of indirect ASUS Aura Lighting, creating a captivating visual effect. The card’s “hollow” chamber design features a larger aluminum frame that protects the main cold plate, circuit board, and pump shroud.
Prominently displaying the iconic ROG branding, lightbars illuminate the central cavity and the top of the card. Additionally, a stainless steel backplate guarantees secure installation, whether users prefer a traditional or vertical mount, accentuating the card’s exquisite appearance. Cable management is effortless, thanks to a single 12VHPWR cable and the concealed fan power cable within the main cooling tubes.
The ROG Matrix RTX 4090 offers more than just exceptional hardware; it also supports custom-built software features. Alongside the typical temperature sensors on the GPU die and memory, additional sensors monitor the VRMs, chokes, and power input circuitry. These data inputs fuel the new Thermal Map feature in the ASUS GPU Tweak III app, providing real-time insight into the card’s thermal performance.
Power Detector+ is another standout feature, enabling the card to detect any anomalies across all six power pins of the 12VHPWR cable. If a fault is detected, users are immediately notified and can easily address the issue. Moreover, the ROG Matrix GeForce RTX 4090 introduces the Mileage feature, which tracks card usage at different power levels, allowing users to monitor their gaming load across multiple sessions.
Designed as a flagship card, the ROG Matrix RTX 4090 incorporates a Dual BIOS switch, allowing users to seamlessly switch between Quiet and Performance modes. Manufactured with the ASUS Auto-Extreme process, the entire circuit board is soldered in a single, fully automated pass, reducing costs and eliminating the need for harsh cleaning chemicals between solder passes. As a result, the ROG Matrix GeForce RTX 4090 is built with the highest quality components, ensuring unparalleled performance throughout its lifespan.
The ROG Matrix RTX 4090 will be available as a limited-edition card for sale in Q3 2023. For more information, please reach out to your local ASUS representative.
