Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 Ti AORUS Xtreme Edition Graphics Card Detailed

It was only a matter of time before Gigabyte applied its custom works to the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. The company has released some pictures of its upcoming AORUS Xtreme Edition - the company's take on what is the world's most powerful gaming graphics card ever released. As an AORUS branded card, the AORUS Xtreme will feature Gigabyte's Windforce (triple-slot, 3x 100mm fans) cooler with RGB lighting (16.8 million colors). Aiding its triple-fan cooling prowess is a direct copper contact with a 6-heatpipe design, as well as a built-in backplate.

The 1080 Ti AORUS Xtreme Edition only has a single VR-link HDMI port on its front corner (while the GTX 1080 had two). On the rear IO however, you'll find 2x HDMI ports (ideal for VR-link), 3x DisplayPort, and 1x DVI. No information on pricing or clock speed is available at the moment, though the card is expected to hit shelves mid-April.

Update: Clock speeds have been revealed by Gygabyte itself, and the card's OC Mode shows boost speeds of 1746 MHz and 1632 MHz base; while its Gaming Mode lowers those to 1721 MHz boost, and 1607 MHz base clocks.

I am really digging the new Gigabyte designs, however I say (In my opinion) its ruined by adding back the DVI as I think its much cleaner on the outputs without it.

The plastic shroud covers the heatsinks too much, it should impede airflow somewhat.

i just realized that i love the led sayin' GeForce GTX than any other name or brand...no brand, no fan stop led, nothing, Geforce GTX, adding nvidia's logo will be nice too,

Also Gigabyte's cooler, shroud should be metallic slim frame....also this is a big card, cant image weight,

Does the overlapping fan setup work without issues? Looks pretty interesting!

What's with the triple fans recently??? and the RGBs, and the over the board designs, and monster coolers for a 1060 that could do with passive... etc
the answer is: they don't design for what we want but for what they think we should want. The explanation is out of place here because it's political/Historical.

I just got the 1080 version of this and I have to see the cooling on this card is simply awesome. I had a MSI 980TI and that card was at max temp every game (84C locked) with the new card it sits at about 70C gaming.
