In an official teaser we have already seen how Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming will look like. The GPU will be based on customized PCB, which is almost same in size of “Founder’s Edition GPU“. Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming will also feature RGB LED lighting (four LED-acrylic strips) on the front side of the graphics card. Unfortunately, at the moment we don’t have any details regarding its frequencies, VRM or an extra PCI-Express connector is added to give more power to a GPU for Overclocking. So everything is summarized in a view that the GPU is equipped with triple-fan WindForce cooler and GPU is shorter than previous variants from 3x WindForce series.

Despite this model would use a custom PCB, we will see some notable changes, like use of expensive components, so its price would not be very high. The Gigabyte will showcase GeForce GTX 1080 XTREME GAMING officially during Computex 2016.
