The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition is an exquisite graphics card. Now, Nvidia's board partners are getting a chance to show what they can do with GP102. The first custom GeForce GTX 1080 Ti we have in our labs comes courtesy of Aorus, who sent over its GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Xtreme Edition 11G for us to check out. Behold:
This GTX 1080 Ti cools its GPU with a heatsink design similar to that of the excellent GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Edition we tested a little while ago. Gigabyte made some subtle changes to this chassis for the changeover to GP102 that we'll explore in greater depth in our full review.
For the moment, here are the important specs. In its OC mode, this card will run at 1632 MHz base and 1746 MHz boost clocks, versus 1480 MHz base and 1582 MHz boost speeds from the Founders Edition card. A more sedate "gaming mode" runs at 1607 MHz base and 1721 MHz boost speeds. Gigabyte also overclocks this card's memory to 11.45 GT/s in OC mode and 11.23 GT/s in its "gaming" mode.
The GTX 1080 Ti Xtreme Edition 11G is already on Newegg's e-shelves for $749.99, though it's out of stock as of this writing. Stay tuned for our full review of this beastly graphics card soon.
