The graphics card manufactured by MSI is rightly tuned into GAMING edition. It will offer a redesigned cooler Twin Frozr VI, which has altered the vanes and improved bearings. The sum will ensure up to 35% less noise as much as 20% lower operating temperatures. Certainty is at least a 14% increase in performance compared to the basic Founders Edition.
NVIDIA's flagship delivers unprecedented graphical performance, now in 4K resolution.
The new Pascal GP104 chip, consisting of 7.2 billion transistors, runs at a considerably higher frequency compared to previous generations.
The card calculates multiple views of the same scene simultaneously, helping to achieve fantastic results in virtual reality applications.
The Pascal GP104 graphics chip features 2560 CUDA cores, accompanied by 160 texture units. The chip is clocked at 1607 MHz, though it reaches an impressive 1733 MHz with Boost Mode.
The GeForce GTX 1080 is expected to advance virtual reality rather significantly, also thanks to its completely new GDDR5X memory. A new manufacturing process enables it to reach faster throughput and the memory clock has skyrocketed to a stunning 10 GHz.
Generally, you can expect up to 3 times faster performance when using VR applications.
The Strix series is a proven graphics card range reserved for the best gaming hardware ASUS has to offer. The GTX 1080 utilises exclusive ASUS technologies such as DirectCU III with two 10 mm heat pipes, using three silent wing-blade fans designed for maximum airflow. The direct-GPU heat pipes transport up to 40% more heat than reference designs. As a result, this technology achieves up to 30% cooler performance and operates at up to three times quieter volumes. This, among other things, allows the card to reach an incredible performance in Boost Mode.
The ASUS Strix GTX 1080-08G GAMING is enhanced with Aura RGB feature. It is a striking LED backlight system that particularly excels in computers with transparent side panels. Show your gaming passion via six pre-set lighting profiles consisting of millions of colours.
GPU Tweak II with XSplit Gamecaster is designed for easy performance tuning and streaming of your gaming sessions. Its intuitive user interface makes overclocking easier and more visually synoptic than ever before. Despite its user-friendly look, the utility offers many advanced features for experienced users.
ASUS is a symbol of the growth of Taiwan's economy. The firm's beginnings date back to April 2, 1989, when as a small manufacturer of motherboards began his work with a few employees. Today, Asus employs more than 12,500 employees worldwide.
