PNY Announces the GeForce GTX 1080 XLR8 OC Graphics Card

PNY today announced its premium custom-design GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card, the GTX 1080 XLR8 OC. The card combines an NVIDIA reference-design (Founders Edition) PCB with a custom-design air-cooling solution, to support factory-overclocked speeds of 1708 MHz core, 1848 MHz GPU Boost, against reference-design clocks of 1607 MHz core and 1733 MHz GPU Boost. The memory is left untouched at 10 GHz (GDDR5X-effective).

The cooling solution features a split aluminium fin-stack heatsink to which heat drawn directly from the GPU core is fed to two aluminium fin-stacks by 8 mm-thick nickel-plated copper heat pipes. The heatsink is ventilated by a trio of 80 mm fans, which stay off when the GPU is idling. The card draws power from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector, display outputs include three DisplayPort 1.4, and one each of HDMI 2.0b and dual-link DVI. Available now, the PNY GTX 1080 XLR8 OC is priced at US $ 659.99.

I can't believe they did this, PNY used to have beautiful neutral color shroud and backplate for the GTX 980.

The combination of red, and black isn't offensive to me. MSI gets away with it along with everyone else. I guess PNY is trying wow the youngsters?

Looks like PNY is planning to take the same awful road that Gigabyte and Asus had taken between 2010 and 2015.

There's a good reason it doesn't look special.

PNY are kinda new to the cooler game, making mostly reference deaigns for nvidia.

While Evga, asus, msi and gigabyte have been perfecting their coolers generation after another, PNY haven't done much.

You could easily spot an ACX, a Strix or a windforce. Good luck spotting anything PNY makes. Hell, i doubt PNY has any r&d in this design. Probably uses a TUL made one or something

Well PNY is old American company, which is one of the few who makes quadros(well puts label PNY on them). Don't really know what kind of deal it has with nvidia, but it's possible that they have to sell geforces too by contract.

There were a rumor not so many years ago, that they will stop selling consumer cards all together. But obviously they does them still. If you look the cards they sell, you would see that there's actually palit dual looking coolers, few older ones what looks like zotac Manli(pc partner) and that powercolor(tul) thingy. Maybe they just use different asian OEMs, and just slap their own name on them.

EDIT: It's actually PC partner, Manli Callardo uses the same cooler.
