There are plenty of custom GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards that are announced, available to buy, on their way, or coming very soon... but one of which isn't here yet are the custom GIGABYTE and AORUS branded cards, something we're now seeing for the first time and man do they look GOOD.
GIGABYTE has started teasing its upcoming AORUS GeForce RTX 2080 XTREME 8G graphics card on social media, so now we know it rocks a gorgeous triple-fan Windforce cooler. We have huge 100mm fans, direct heat pipes, and 12+2 power phases. On the back, GIGABYTE is using a metal backplate with an AORUS logo that has RGB lighting.
One thing that GIGABYTE has done differently to other AIB partners with its upcoming AORUS GeForce RTX 2080 XTREME 8G is that it has 7 display outputs... 5 of which can be used at once. We have 3 x DisplayPort 1.4, 3 x HDMI 2.0b, and 1 x USB-C with VirtualLink.
The new AORUS RTX 2080 XTREME 8G will be shipping in the coming weeks, with no price just yet - but we should see it come out for $800-$900 or so.
