Gigabyte presents its two versions of the GeForce GTX 1080 Graphics card. We are talking about GeForce GTX 1080 G1 Gaming and 1080 Xtreme Gaming. We have already seen the specifications and pictures of GeForce GTX 1080 G1 Gaming and it was expected that the company will soon announce the other variant of the GTX 1080 from Xtreme Gaming series for better Overclocking support.
Gigabyte Presents GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming Stacked Fan and GTX 1080 G1 Gaming
The exact specifications of the GeForce 1080 Xtreme Gaming are not yet known. It will be based on Pascal GP104 GPU with 2560 CUDA cores and 8 GB of GDDR5X memory with 256-bit memory interface. The GTX 1080 G1 Gaming Boost clock is 1721 MHz so we can expect more factory-raised clock from Xtreme Gaming edition, but gigabyte didn’t disclose the exact values. The GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming Stacked Fan will be powered via 2x 8-pin express power connectors so you can also Overclock it to higher frequencies for better performance.
GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming Stacked Fan is three slot GPU, which includes two solid radiators, several thick heat pipes, the card uses three fans –two larger, flanking fans and a central, odd dual-fan-thing. (In the middle there is a smaller fan than others). The whole was hidden under a spectacular housing, and the reverse laminate covered with an aluminum plate.
Noteworthy is the video outputs, because for display we have a standard set (ie. DVI-D, HDMI 2.0, 3x DisplayPort 1.4), but in addition to the back of the card it includes two additional HDMI 1.4b connectors- we find the 5.25 inch panel to output them to the front of the casing, making it easier to connect the VR goggles.
