Tuned chip Pascal's design, GIGABYTE driven almost to its maximum. Definitely recommended to switch the card to the OC mode, the core runs at 1721 MHz and during the Boost mode shoots up to 1860 MHz. This is only possible thanks to a very well carried out cooling. This is the job very large and densely finned heat sink that is blown trio of silent fans. This celebration of technological skill is called Windforce 3X and certainly will not leave you in the lurch even when playing with other overclocking.
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 GIGABYTE edition is designed to utilise every drop of Pascal's power. We definitely recommended switching the card to OC mode, which makes the chip run at 1721 MHz, reaching 1860 MHz in Boost Mode. The key is the card's sophisticated cooling system. It features a large and densely finned heat sink, cooled by three silent fans. This celebration of technological skill is called Windforce 3X and it has you covered even if you start exploring the joys of overclocking.
If you have a PC case with a transparent side panel, you have yet another reason to buy this model. The card is decorated with a GIGABYTE inscription. The LED backlighting features can be customised using the supplied utility. And when the fan is in passive mode, you can see a striking illuminated inscription reading FAN STOP.
Gigabyte, founded in 1986, is an irreplaceable player in the field of computer components. They put great emphasis on key technologies and the strictest quality standards. The company produces a wide range of basic computer components such as motherboards and graphics cards, but also have many computer peripherals, laptops, tablets, desktops and even network solutions and servers on offer. Recently they also introduced a line of Gigabyte mobile phones.
