Gigabyte has revealed their AORUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card. The AORUS GTX 1080 Ti features Gigabyte’s Windforce (triple-slot, 3x 100 mm fans) cooler with RGB lighting (16.8 million colors). Under the shroud, it features a direct copper contact through a 6-heatpipe design, as well as a built-in backplate. Gigabyte is marketing this card as “Built for Extreme Overclocking,” through its usage of 12+2 Power Phases. The AORUS GTX 1080 Ti comes with substantial clock speed, in the form of two modes: an OC Mode, with boost clocks of 1708 MHz and base clocks at 1594 MHz; and a Gaming Mode, with 1683 MHz boost and 1569 MHz base.
The 1080 Ti AORUS only has a single VR-link HDMI port on its front corner (while the GTX 1080 had two). On the rear IO, however, it features 2x HDMI ports, 3x DisplayPort, and 1x DVI. The AORUS GTX 1080 Ti is expected to available by the mid-April. And a more powerful sibling, the AORUS GTX 1080 Ti Xtreme Edition, which will have even higher clock speeds also revealed as well: its OC Mode shows boost speeds of 1746 MHz and 1632 MHz base, and its Gaming Mode lowers those to 1721 MHz boost, and 1607 MHz base clocks.
