GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 3090 Ampere Eagle OC and Gaming OC Pictured

Here are the first pictures of the GeForce RTX 3090 "Ampere" Eagle OC and Gaming OC custom-design graphics cards by GIGABYTE. Both cards implement the company's latest generation WindForce 3X cooling solution that's triple-slot, featuring a trio of fans, and varying grades of factory overclocked speeds. The Eagle OC SKU could be positioned slightly above the Gaming OC SKU. Above the two, GIGABYTE could position its coveted AORUS Gaming branded graphics card. It's been established from yesterday's Gainward leaks, that 24 GB is the standard memory size for the RTX 3090, while 10 GB is standard for the RTX 3080.

GIGABYTE Readies EAGLE Graphics Card Brand Extension, includes RX 5600 XT

GIGABYTE is readying a new brand-extension for its graphics cards lineup, called EAGLE. It will join the company's existing brand extensions, namely Aorus Gaming and WindForce series. Regulatory filings by GIGABYTE with the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) sees the company launching as many as 30 individual SKUs, spanning nearly every current-generation GPU. On the AMD front, we have cards based on the RX 5700 XT, RX 5700, RX 5500 XT, and the yet-unannounced RX 5600 XT, with its 6 GB of memory.

The NVIDIA lineup includes all its GTX 16-series and RTX 20-series SKUs, with the exception of the RTX 2080 Ti. The inclusion of RTX 2070 and RTX 2080, SKUs believed to have been passively retired with the advent of the RTX 2070 Super and RTX 2080 Super, is interesting. It shows that NVIDIA hasn't given up on the two. The RTX 2070's second-coming in particular, was reportedly triggered by supply shortages in the RX 5700 series, giving NVIDIA room to sell something around the $400-450 mark, bang in the middle of the RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super.

GIGABYTE Readies Several Radeon RX 5500 Series Graphics Cards

GIGABYTE has filed regulatory filings with the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) for several Radeon RX 5500-series graphics cards, including as many as six models based on the range-topping RX 5500 XT. The filing confirms that the RX 5500 XT is real, and that all six models from GIGABYTE feature 8 GB of GDDR6 memory. The RX 5500 XT, or Navi 10 XTX is rumored to feature 24 RDNA compute units, making up 1,536 stream processors, and a 128-bit wide GDDR6 memory interface, holding 8 GB of memory. AMD possibly hopes to capture sub-$250 price points with this SKU, given that NVIDIA preempted it with the $230 GeForce GTX 1660 Super.

Among the six models, going by GIGABYTE naming conventions, are cards based on the company's WindForce 2X cooler, the Gaming OC SKU that possibly has the larger WindForce 3X cooler, and simpler models that stick to reference clock-speeds. GIGABYTE has been rather restrained with its AMD "Navi" graphics card series, with only two custom-design RX 5700-series graphics cards so far. The same EEC filing also references several additional RX 5700-series SKUs from the company, including some based on its coveted Aorus Gaming brand.

GIGABYTE Outs a Trio of GTX 1060 6GB Graphics Cards with GDDR5X Memory

GIGABYTE today rolled out a trio of custom-design graphics cards that implement the new GDDR5X memory equipped variant of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6 GB. The lineup begins with the GTX 1060 6 GB D5X WindForce 2X OC (model: GV-N1060WF2OC-6GD 2.0), and goes on to the better-endowed GTX 1060 6 GB D5X WindForce 3X OC (GV-N1060WF3OC-6GD 2.0), and the range-topping GTX 1060 6 GB D5X G1.Gaming OC (GV-N1060G1 GAMING-6GD 3.0).

Out of the box, the D5X WindForce 2X OC offers clock speeds of 1556 MHz GPU core, and 1771 MHz GPU Boost, against NVIDIA-reference speeds of 1506/1708 MHz. The D5X WindForce 3X OC has the same exact clock speeds out of the box, but is endowed with a better WindForce 3X triple-fan cooler that helps sustain boost frequencies and manually overclocked speeds better. The D5X G1.Gaming tops the range with 1594 MHz core and 1809 MHz GPU Boost. Sadly all three cards run the GDDR5X memory at 8.00 GHz clock speeds. All three cards make do with a single 8-pin PCIe power input. Prices (MSRP) range from $249.99 for the WindForce 2X OC to $269.99 for the WindForce 3X OC, and $299.99 for the G1.Gaming OC.

GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti Graphics Cards Pictured

It looks like NVIDIA has a bonanza in store for later today (20th August), with pictures emerging of not just custom-design GeForce RTX 2080, but also RTX 2080 Ti. The cycle of leaks begins with GIGABYTE, which curiously lacks Aorus branding for its cards. There are four SKUs in all: the GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Gaming OC 11G, GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 2080 Ti WindForce OC 11G, GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 2080 Gaming OC 8G, and GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 2080 WindForce OC 8G. The OC variants feature a 2.5-slot thick cooler, while the non-OC versions are strictly 2-slot.

All four feature variants of GIGABYTE's latest generation of WindForce 3X triple-fan coolers. The cooler features three aluminium fin stacks that are fed heat by 4-5 copper heat pipes that make direct contact with the GPU at the base. Power is drawn from two 8-pin PCIe connectors. Display outputs are an interesting mix, including three full-size DisplayPorts, an HDMI port, and a USB type-C with DisplayPort (+ USB-PD?) wiring.

GIGABYTE Launches Radeon RX Vega Gaming OC WindForce 2X Series

GIGABYTE has a custom-design Radeon RX Vega series after all, with the company announcing the RX Vega 64 WindForce 2X and RX Vega 56 WindForce 2X graphics cards. These cards combine a 100% custom-design PCB by GIGABYTE, with a large WindForce 2X cooling-solution that the company is debuting with these cards. The cooler features a split aluminium fin-stack heatsink to which heat drawn by 8 mm-thick copper heat-pipes is fed; ventilated by a pair of large 100 mm fans, which stay off when the GPU is idling. The heat-pipes make direct contact with the GPU and HBM2 stacks, while a base-plate conveys heat drawn from the VRM MOSFETs.

The back-plate has a copper center-plate and a flat heat-pipe of its own, drawing heat from the PCB via non-electrically-conductive thermal pads. The two fans blow air onto the heatsink, but one fan spins clockwise to do this, while the other spins counter-clockwise. The custom-design PCB features a 13-phase VRM, and draws power from a pair of 8-pin PCIe power connectors. Both cards come with factory-overclocked speeds, with the engine-clock boosting up to 1560 MHz, while the memory clock is left untouched. The card features an unusual display connector loadout, including three each of DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.0 ports, all located on the rear panel. The company didn't reveal pricing.

Gigabyte's Radeon RX Vega 64 Gaming OC Custom Graphics Card Pictured

Remember previous reports that Gigabyte wouldn't be launching a custom version for AMD's RX Vega graphics cards? Always remember that facts can change, and what is true today could see itself being rendered a myth by lunchtime tomorrow. Case in point: previous reports pegged Gigabyte as skipping custom versions of AMD's RX Vega GPUs, due to both availability and manufacturing issues. However, as Videocardz reports (with pictures!), that may no longer be the case.

Apparently, Gigabyte has received a new batch of AMD RX Vega GPUs just in time for the mid-October expected release window of RX Vega custom cards, and are already at work on a Gaming OC custom version of the graphics card with a dual fan configuration (likely a revised WindForce 2X cooler). The card is expected to feature an output configuration of 3x HDMI + 3x DisplayPort, and in Videocardz image comparison, occupies slightly more space in our usual three dimensions than the AMD reference design (as expected).

Aorus Intros the GeForce GTX 1060 6GB Xtreme Edition with 9 Gbps Memory

GIGABYTE today launched its second custom-design GeForce GTX 1060 6 GB graphics card that features faster 9 Gbps GDDR5 memory, the Aorus GeForce GTX 1060 6 GB Xtreme Edition 9 Gbps (model: GV-N1060AORUS X-6GD). The company had last week announced the triple-fan WindForce OC variant of this SKU. The Xtreme Edition card features a triple-slot, dual-fan cooler that features the signature X-shaped lighting ornament on the cooler shroud, sitting between the two 100 mm fans. Under this shroud is an aluminium fin dual-stack heatsink that draws heat from a copper base-plate that covers not just the GPU, but also the memory and VRM. A back-plate is included. The cooler shroud features RGB LED illumination.

The Xtreme Edition is positioned a notch above the card GIGABYTE launched last week, in featuring higher factory-overclocked speeds of 1620 MHz core, 1847 MHz GPU Boost, and an untouched 9026 MHz (GDDR5-effective) memory clock, against 1607/1835 MHz (core/boost) of the WindForce 3X, and 1506/1709/8008 MHz (core/boost/memory) NVIDIA-reference clocks. The card draws power from a single 8-pin PCIe connector, display outputs include three DisplayPort 1.4, and one each of HDMI 2.0b and dual-link DVI. The company didn't reveal pricing.

Aorus Also Intros GeForce GTX 1060 6GB with Faster 9 Gbps GDDR5 Memory

In addition to a new pair of GeForce GTX 1080 graphics cards with faster 11 Gbps memory, GIGABYTE, through its Aorus brand, introduced a new custom-design GeForce GTX 1060 6 GB graphics card featuring faster 9 Gbps (GDDR5-effective) memory. The faster memory lends the GTX 1060 a memory bandwidth of 216 GB/s over its 192-bit wide interface.

The Aorus GTX 1060 6GB 9Gbps Edition (model: GV-N1060AORUS-6GD) features a premium-looking custom board design with a 2-slot thick triple-fan WindForce 3X cooling solution, mated to a custom-design PCB that draws power from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector; and a back-plate. The card comes with factory-overclocked speeds of 1607 MHz core, 1835 MHz GPU Boost, and 9.00 GHz (GDDR5-effective) memory, against reference speeds of 1506/1708/8008 MHz. The company didn't reveal pricing.

GIGABYTE Intros GeForce GTX 1080 Rock Edition Graphics Card

GIGABYTE today introduced the GeForce GTX 1080 Rock Edition G1.Gaming graphics card (model: GV-N1080G1 ROCK-8GD). Put simply, this is a GTX 1080 WindForce OC (GV-N1080WF3OC-8GD) graphics card with an older generation WindForce 3X cooling solution, which the company deployed on some of its GeForce GTX 900 series products, such as the GTX 980 Ti G1.Gaming.

The underlying PCB is identical to that of the WindForce OC, and it also features an identical factory OC of 1632 MHz core, 1771 MHz GPU Boost, and 10 GHz (GDDR5X-effective) memory, out of the box. 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. The company didn't reveal pricing.

GIGABYTE Intros the GeForce GTX 1080 TT Graphics Card

GIGABYTE unveiled its very own lateral-blower cooled GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card, the GTX 1080 TT (model: GV-N1080TTOC-8GD). This card is characterized by the new WindForce Turbo Fan lateral-blower type cooler that pushes hot air out of your case, much like the reference-design (Founders Edition) card. It features a slick cooler shroud that has design elements from the company's Xtreme Gaming cards.

Under the hood, the cooler features a dense copper heat pipe-fed aluminium channel heatsink, ventilated by the lateral blower. This heatsink features three 6 mm-thick copper heat pipes that make direct contact with the GPU die, while an aluminium plate draws heat from the memory and VRM. The card offers factory-overclocked speeds of 1657 MHz core, 1797 MHz GPU Boost (OC mode); 1632 MHz core, 1772 MHz GPU Boost (out of the box); with the memory untouched at 10 GHz (GDDR5X-effective). The card draws power from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector. GIGABYTE didn't reveal pricing, although we expect this to be the company's cheapest GTX 1080 offering.

GIGABYTE Announces the GeForce GTX 1070 WindForce 2X

GIGABYTE announced its cost-effective custom-design GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card, the GTX 1070 WindForce OC (model: GV-N1070WF2OC-8GD). The card features a simpler WindForce 2X cooling solution than the WindForce 3X the GTX 1070 G1.Gaming ships with. This cooler features a more compact twin aluminium-fin stack heatsink, that's ventilated by a pair of 90 mm fans, which stay off when the card is idling.

The card also serves up a small factory overclock of 1582 MHz core, 1771 MHz Boost in "OC mode" and 1556 MHz core, 1746 MHz Boost in "Gaming mode," against NVIDIA reference clocks of 1506/1683 MHz. The memory is left untouched at 8.00 GHz. The card draws power from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector. Display outputs include three DisplayPort 1.4, one HDMI 2.0b, and one dual-link DVI. We expect this card to be priced closest to the $379 baseline NVIDIA set for this SKU, among GIGABYTE's GTX 1070 lineup.

GIGABYTE Announces the GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming

GIGABYTE launched its flagship GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming graphics card. This card features GIGABYTE's highest factory-overclock for the GTX 1080, supported by a custom-design PCB with a strong VRM, and a meaty new custom design cooling solution. The company's new WindForce Stack 3X cooler features three fans in a "stacked" configuration, with the middle fan slightly receded from the plane of the other two fans. This arrangement, according to GIGABYTE, maximizes air-flow to the heatsink.

The cooler also features RGB LED lighting on an X-shaped design element, and a logo on the top of the card, right next to its two 8-pin PCIe power inputs. The cooler comes with a back-plate. GIGABYTE is including quite a few useful accessories with the card, including a 2U-spaced SLI HB bridge, a front-panel that fits into a 5.25-inch drive bay, giving you two HDMI 2.0b ports, and a pair of USB 3.0 ports relayed from your motherboard header; or a rear-panel bracket that puts out those two HDMI 2.0b ports from the card. GIGABYTE is backing the card with a staggering 4-year warranty (online registration needed).

GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming Pictured

A low-resolution picture of GIGABYTE's upcoming GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming graphics card made it to the web, revealing the company's latest WindForce 3X cooling solution. The card doesn't appear to be as long as some of the older WindForce 3X based graphics cards from the company, but is taller. It features three ≥100 mm fans, compacted in a way that makes the two side fans overlap the middle fan, which is slightly receded into the heatsink, and suspended along an outwardly-static hub (the fan still blows inwards). The static hub features four LED-acrylic strips that make an "X." Not much else is known about the card. Things should clear up by the 27th, though.

GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1080/GTX 1070 Xtreme Gaming Teased

GIGABYTE teased a silhouette of its upcoming GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming graphics card. This could very well also be a teaser for its GTX 1070 Xtreme Gaming. Not only is NVIDIA allowing custom-design GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 graphics cards from day-one, but is also incentivizing choosing them. The MSRP for GTX 1080 is set at $599. You won't get the reference card for this price. That's being sold at a premium, for $699, as "Founders Edition."

NVIDIA "suggests" that the cheapest custom-design cards at launch will be $100 cheaper than the reference-design card. From the looks of the silhouette, the GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming could feature the same WindForce 3X cooling solution as the one featured on the company's GTX 980 Ti Xtreme Gaming. The GTX 1080 goes on sale from May 27, with the GTX 1070 following on June 10, however, GIGABYTE's Xtreme Gaming cards arrive no sooner than June.

GIGABYTE Intros GeForce GTX 960 4GB Xtreme Graphics Card with RGB Lighting

GIGABYTE expanded its Xtreme Gaming graphics card lineup with the GV-N960XTREME-4GD, a custom-design GeForce GTX 960 graphics card with 4 GB of memory, and customizable RGB lighting for its fans and top decal. The card is based on a custom-design PCB, with factory-overclocked speeds of 1304 MHz core and 1367 MHz GPU Boost, compared to NVIDIA-reference clocks of 1127 MHz core, 1178 MHz GPU Boost. The memory is left untouched at 7010 MHz (GDDR5-effective).

At the business-end of this product is its meaty, new-generation WindForce 2X cooling solution, which features a pair of 90 mm fans. The two fans spin in opposite directions while both blow air onto the GPU heatsink, the two impellers are designed with opposite orientation. The fans, and a GIGABYTE Xtreme Gaming logo on the top of the cooler shroud, are fitted with RGB LEDs that can be customized via software, letting you choose from 16.7 million colors. The card features a strong VRM, which draws power from a combination of 6-pin and 8-pin PCIe power connectors. A back-plate is included. GIGABYTE didn't mention pricing.
