GIGABYTE Unveils the GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming Water Cooled

GIGABYTE unveiled a liquid cooled variant of its GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming graphics card (model: GV-N1080XTREME W-8GD). The card features the same factory overclocked speeds as the air-cooled GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming card, but is cooled by the company's latest WaterForce AIO liquid cooling solution. Unlike other AIO liquid cooled custom GTX 1080 cards, this one lacks a liquid-air hybrid setup, and relies entirely on the liquid pump-block to cool not just the GPU, but also the memory and VRM.

The card is plumbed to a 120 mm x 120 mm radiator with a 120 mm spinner. It features RGB LED lighting along the top logo and an "X" shaped ornament over the pump-block. The card features clock speeds of 1784 MHz core, 1936 MHz GPU Boost, and 10.21 GHz (GDDR5X-effective) memory. It features Xtreme VR Link, a secondary display I/O mode that enables three HDMI 2.0b and one dual-link DVI connector in "VR mode," and three DisplayPorts 1.4, one HDMI 2.0b, and one dual-link DVI; in "standard mode." This works through TMDS rerouting, and the additional HDMI ports are put out through internal headers that can either be wired to the rear panel through a bracket, or a front-panel that fits into a 5.25-inch bay. The card is backed by a 4-year warranty.
Many Thanks to newconroer for the tip.

Would certainly be interesting to see this pitted against its air cooled brother. Gigabyte rep, hook TPU up with some Xtremes. :p

D1RTYD1Z619But how much is it?
Inno Chill, Hybrid and SeaHawk are already priced to market. I would suspect around their prices, if not slightly more.

It will perform similar to the 980TI version, or rather there's no reason for it not too. Average gaming at 60-96fps, would see the temperature around 50-60degrees.
