Graphics card GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition is equipped with the reference cooler, which not quite hold up during overclocking up to 15% against the default frequencies. However, even without clocking in the most popular games, you get a full 30% over the GeForce GTX 980 Ti.
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 MSI GTX 1080 AERO 8G OC is a reference version with an improved cooler design. However, operating frequencies have also been slightly improved and Boost Mode now allows the card to reach 1771 MHz. This option is suitable for modders who require the lowest price possible, since it enables them to use their own cooling solutions.
