The last GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card I reviewed was GIGABYTE's GeForce GTX 1080 G1 Gaming, where I was left more than impressed with its performance and the use of a single 8-pin PCIe power connector. But GIGABYTE's new GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming graphics card is a step up, and an impressive one at that.

 

 

GIGABYTE's new GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming comes in a Premium Pack edition, which is the one I'm looking at today, and features 'Xtreme VR Link' which provides additional HDMI ports on the front of your machine, so that you can use a VR headset without using the single HDMI port on the back of the graphics card itself.

 

All of this talk, and we haven't even scratched the surface of what GIGABYTE is offering with the GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming graphics card in terms of performance. Well, it has some of the best performance we've seen, with some excellent acoustic performance, too. GIGABYTE has provided 16.8 million customizable color options for the LEDs on the card so that you can tune the GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming through the XTREME Engine utility to your liking.

 

 

 

Pricing & Availability

 

The GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming Premium Pack graphics card is currently on Amazon for $889.99 with stock available at the time of writing.
