If you're after a graphics card that pushes out 1080p 120FPS+ or you've got a 2560x1440 gaming display at 144/165Hz, then the AORUS GTX 1080 Ti 11G is something you should be looking at. For those with a 21:9 aspect display and native 3440x1440 resolution, in our testing the AORUS GTX 1080 Ti 11G can handle 80-100FPS without a problem, which is perfect for the 100Hz UltraWide gaming monitors on the market.
AORUS, as usual, is on the ball, offering up some of the coolest running GTX 1080 Ti temps we've seen. The company does talk up its advanced copper back plate cooling, with a rear-side GPU copper back plate. Our card was running at 62C max and scaling up to around 68-70C when overclocked.
AORUS has filled out its GeForce GTX 1080 Ti range well, with the GTX 1080 Ti 11G being the second-fastest in the 3-way stack, with the Xtreme Edition sitting on top of the performance mountain. At the end of the day, you're going to get a great graphics card that can handle anything you throw at it.
For games like CS:GO, Overwatch, Rocket League, and others - frames are king, so you need 120-165FPS for the high refresh rate panels. If you're gaming on my favorite native res: 3440x1440, then you're going to be enjoying your native refresh of 100Hz easily, with 80-100FPS on Ultra details on the AORUS GTX 1080 Ti 11G. For 4K gamers, you're fine with 60FPS average not being a problem in most games - some of them, however, you will be dropping some in-game details down.
If you're rocking a GIGABYTE or AORUS motherboard and were looking at a GTX 1080 Ti, then the AORUS GTX 1080 Ti 11G is a kind of perfect fit. Oodles of power, a stylish look, and best of all - if one isn't enough, why not get two and throw them in SLI?
