Zotac teases triple-slot GeForce GTX 1080 Ti PGF

Not to be left out of the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti party, Zotac is passing around pictures of what will probably be its top-end GTX 1080 Ti card. The GTX 1080 Ti PGF appears to pack an enormous triple-fan cooler that extends well into a third expansion slot. The cooler is bedecked with RGB LEDs, as is the backplate. The card also appears to take a pair of 8-pin power connectors. While non-standard, that power configuration should allow for some beastly overclocking.

While the Founder's Edition GTX 1080 Ti drops the DVI connector found on the rest of the Pascal range, Zotac's model seems to include it, judging from the render above. A post on Chinese tech news site XFastest says that the card will have a "much higher" boost clock than the reference GTX 1080 Ti's 1600 MHz. XFastest also says that Zotac will purportedly be releasing a 10th-Anniversary edition of the card that should boost to a whopping 2GHz out of the box.

      You know, you can just buy a windowless case and then, from that point on, you will not need to care about what the GPUs look like.

    Didn’t that use that to communicate with the aliens in [i<]Close Encounters of the Third Kind[/i<]?

      Only if it corresponds to the notes/sound it makes 😉

    Does the PGF stand for Pretty Garish ****er?

    well looky, they made a card for the rainbow people.

      Interesting. It’s a Chevy. I guess that means this is the video-card version of a Corvette?

    Is this the disco version or the carnival?

    Do the Chevy logos on it make it go faster?

      Can’t wait for Chevy Volta.

        Holy shit. Comment of the year right there.

      Great, now we’re going to start seeing window clings of Calvin peeing on a GTX 1080Ti.

    I have a 1440p 144Hz Gsync monitor and my GTX970 does alright with the games I play. I really don’t need a new card.

    But I have this incredibly strong urge to splurge on a 1080ti. For my monitor it would probably be a quite noticeable upgrade, wouldn’t it?

      • DPete27
      • 3 years ago

      Depends on the games you play.

        • adampk17

        How about…

        1. World of Warships
        2. Witcher 3
        3. Doom
        4. Shroud of the Avatar

          I would say spend the cash on something else. I don’t think the upgrade would be that dramatic, really

    • DPete27

    By far the fugliest GPU design I’ve seen as of late.

      It’s less of a GEFORCE and more of a DISCOFORCE.

        Either we’re under attack, or we’re having a disco…

        I’m going to make a million dollars selling 3″ RGB disco balls that attach to a fan header.

      I dunno. I think it looks like a Chevy. Hope it runs more like a Corvette than a Vega.

    At last, buyers of the [url=http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/ASUS/GTX_980_Ti_Matrix/23.html<]Asus Matrix 980 Ti[/url<] have a worthy upgrade.

      • ImSpartacus

      Jeez, that’s a clean 20% overclock on the gpu. I can’t even

        • Shobai
        • 3 years ago

        It’s worse than that, jImSpartacus: if the stock 980Ti is 4/5ths of the Asus Matrix, the Matrix is 5/4ths of the stock (i.e. 125%, a 25% improvement), at 4k res at least.

          • ImSpartacus
          • 3 years ago

          I was talking about the core clocks. The card’s core clock is 1216-1291MHz and the stock 980 Ti hits 1000-1075Mhz. So the overclock is a 21.6-20.1% oc depending on whether you’re using the base or boost clock.

          Though I see what you’re getting at. It looks like something else (maybe the cooler or superior binning) gets some extra “omph”.
