Asus Teases Turbo GeForce GTX 1080 Videocard

Asus has just introduced Turbo GeForce GTX 1080 videocard with etalon frequencies & a modified cooler. The model is developed on Nvidia GP104-400 GPU (2560 CUDA, 160 TMUs, 64 ROPs) that operates at 1607/1733 MHz frequency. The integrated GDDR5 memory (8 GB, 256-bit interface, 320 Gb/sec bandwidth) runs at 10 GHz frequency.



The card is coated in a dark-gray cover with logo illumination. The PCB is designed with the help of Auto-Extreme technology as well as Super Alloy Power II hardware. The other peculiar feature is a totally revamped cooling system. As distinct from the etalon model, the Turbo version employs a single fan, based on dual ball-bearings, which pushes hot air away from the GPU.


The greenhorn comes equipped with a pair of HDMI ports for the connection of various devices, including VR-helmets. There are also DVI-D and DisplayPort 1.4 ports. The PCB features a single 8-pin power connector. Asus Turbo GeForce GTX 1080 supports GPU Tweak II & Xsplit Gamecaster …
