At first glance, this card should look a lot like the Editor's Choice-winning GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming we reviewed a while back, and that's because it uses the same basic cooler design. That's not a bad thing, though, as the Xtreme Gaming card already has one of the best heatsinks in the business.
Flipping the Aorus GTX 1080 over reveals some major changes to the Xtreme Gaming's backplate design. That big slab of copper purports to enhance GPU cooling by siphoning heat away from the back of the PCB, and the white Aorus logo lights up with—you guessed it!—RGB LEDs. Stay tuned for our review of this apex predator of a GTX 1080.
