Back in March at GDC NVIDIA announced their GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card. This card is packed with 3584 CUDA cores and 11GB of GDDR5X memory. Since then Gigabyte has released three AORUS GTX 1080 Ti models. The card we are taking a look at today sits in the middle of the three in terms of pricing, but actually has the same clocks as the top-end Waterforce WB Xtreme Edition 11G version. The card we are taking a look at today is the AORUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Xtreme Edition 11G. It is default configuration the card features a base clock of 1607 MHz and GPU boost up to 1721 MHz with the memory at 11232 MHz. There is even an OC Mode that you can enable with the AORUS software which enables a base clock of 1632 MHz, GPU boost of 1746 MHz, and 11448 MHz memory! This card also features a pretty awesome cooling solution and RGB lighting on three different parts of the card. Is this the ultimate GeForce GTX 1080 Ti card? Read on as we find out!
