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 1759 MHz and during the Boost mode shoots up to 1898 MHz. This is only possible thanks to a very well carried out cooling. That takes care Stack WindForce 3X cooler fitted with three 100 mm fans. Fans have the unique shape of the blades and double ball bearings. Two extreme fans extend above the middle. It also has an opposite rotation of the blades and reverse direction. This would double the intake of air into the deficit. Liabilities divided into two parts is then interwoven 6 heapipe tubes that have direct contact with the GPU.
NVIDIA's new product series 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.
A new manufacturing process enables faster throughput for the new GDDR5X memory modules, which translates into a big leap forward in VR technology support. The memory is clocked at a staggering 10 GHz.
Overall, you can expect up to 3 times faster performance when using VR applications.
The GIGABYTE design squeezes every last drop of power from the Pascal chip. We recommend switching the card into OC mode, where the chip runs at 1784 MHz, reaching 1936 MHz in Boost Mode. This wouldn’t be possible without a well-designed cooler, and GeForce GTX 1080 has just that. WindForce Stack 3X is fitted with three 100 mm fans. These fans have a unique blade design and a double ball bearing structure. The stacked design has the centre fan recessed and the fins of the other two fans stacked above it. The centre fan also spins in the reverse direction to double airflow and dissipate the heat more effectively. Two dense heatsink stacks are interwoven with six composite heat pipes, making direct contact with the GPU.
If your PC has transparent side panels, you have another reason to buy this particular model. The back of the card sports the GIGABYTE logo, whose LED backlight you can personally customise using the supplied program. And when the fan in a completely passive mode, you get a strikingly illuminated FAN STOP sign.
This model come with a number of interesting extras. First, there is a new SLI bridge type for connecting a second card of the same type. The pack includes a 5.25" drive bay and two USB 2.0 and two USB 3.0 ports. The rear panel carries two HDMI 2.0b ports. A wristband with the Extreme Gaming logo and a cool mousepad are just the cherry on top.
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.
