GIGABYTE Intros Aorus GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Graphics Card

GIGABYTE introduced its third custom-design GeForce GTX 1070 Ti graphics card following the GTX 1070 Ti Gaming, and GTX 1070 Ti WindForce 2X; this one labeled under its premium Aorus brand. The Aorus GeForce GTX 1070 Ti graphics card features reference clock speeds of 1607 MHz core, 1683 MHz GPU Boost, and 8.00 GHz (GDDR5-effective) memory, just like the other two, since NVIDIA doesn't allow factory-overclocked GTX 1070 Ti graphics cards. The Aorus GTX 1070 Ti features a different PCB and cooler to those of the GIGABYTE GTX 1070 Ti Gaming.

The cooler's underlying aluminium fin-stack heatsink is the same, and is ventilated by a trio of 80 mm fans; but the cooler shroud is different, and is studded with RGB LED elements, including a multi-color Aorus logo on the top. These LEDs can be configured using GIGABYTE RGB Fusion software. The back-plate is different, too, and features a copper plate over the reverse side of the GPU, which draws heat from behind the GPU via a thermal pad, dissipates it along the metal back-plate. The card still draws power from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector, but the PCB features a 6+2 phase VRM with higher-capacity chokes than the GIGABYTE Gaming card. Display outputs still include three DisplayPorts and one each of HDMI and DVI. This will be GIGABYTE's most expensive GTX 1070 Ti offering.

It may be called AORUS, but this really looks more like GIGABYTE WindForce3X... AORUS coolers use metal shroud, this one is plastic and shaped the same as other WindForce ones...

Also a real Aorus doesn't use direct touch heatpipes.
