Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Aorus Xtreme Edition
Gigabyte's GTX 1080 Ti is also thicker than its predecessors. The three fans overlap partly - due to this the card isn't exceptionally long - and they feature necessary lighting, with the big cross in the middle standing out the most. The double-ball bearing should extend the lifetime of the fans.
The Aorus card has the most extensive power circuit out of all cards featured in this round-up. There are 10 phases for the GPU and two extra phases for the memory chips. The connection with the power supply is made with two 8-pin power connectors, that both feature an LED that indicate whether they are connected correctly and/or whether the voltage running through the cables is stable.
We also find an internal HDMI connector on the PCB, which is meant to be looped through to the front of your case. This allows you to easily connect a VR headset. Furthermore there are six other outputs on the rear I/O: 3x DisplayPort, 2x HDMI and 1x DVI. You can use up to four of the seven monitor connections simultaneously.
