PNY announced its premium custom-design GeForce GTX 1080 XLR8 OC. PNY combines a NVIDIA reference-design (Founders Edition) PCB with their custom-design air-cooling solution, to provide factory-overclocked speeds of 1708 MHz core, 1848 MHz GPU Boost, compare to reference design clocks of 1607 MHz core and 1733 MHz GPU Boost. The memory is left untouched at 10 GHz (GDDR5X-effective).
The cooler features aluminium fin-stack heatsink with 8 mm thick nickel-plated copper heat pipes that directly contact the GPU core. And cooled by three 80 mm fans, which stay off when the GPU is idling. The card is powered by 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 PNY GTX 1080 XLR8 OC is available for the price of $ 659.99 US.
