Elegant design & astounding overclocking – that’s all about new GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming videocard from Gigabyte. The model (codename: GV-N1080XTREME-8GD) is based on Nvidia’s GP104-400 GPU that is characterized by a high efficiency and a stunning performance. It can operate in OC or Gaming mode to better comply with users’ needs. In the former instance, the base/dynamic clock frequencies make up 1784/1936 MHz, whereas in the latter instance, this index equals to 1759/1898 MHz (reference showings: 1607/1733 MHz).
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming boasts the integration of 8 GB of GDDR5X video memory (256-bit interface) that has been overclocked to 10.211 MHz (Gaming mode) & 10.416 MHz (OC mode) respectively. The card is differentiated by an offbeat design with an X-style cover. The PCB comes equipped with LED backlight, supporting 16.8 million colors as well as a few running modes.
To continue, the greenhorn accommodates 12+2 VRM subsystem and Ultra Durable VGA hardware base. Cooling is vested upon a brand WindForce Stack 3X cooler, fitted with three 100-mm fans; the latter rotate every each way. The system is also furnished with 6 heatpipes, dual aluminum heatsink, and a backplate. On low loading this cooler deactivates and keeps on operating in a passive mode.
The PCB features a dedicated coating that saves the board from humidity, dust & corrosion. The list of external interfaces involves 1x DVI-D port, 1x HDMI 2.0b port as well as 3x DisplayPort connectors. VR-targeted board versions come with three HDMI ports, one DVI-D interface and one DisplayPort. Power is supplied via a pair of 8-pin connectors.
