Computex 2016 - Following up the GIGABYTE GTX 1080 G1 card from last week is the GIGABYTE GTX 1080 XTREME, as seen at Computex. Whereas the former appears to interested in striking a balance between temperature and performance, the XTREME seems to go all out.

GIGABYTE GTX 1080 XTREME shows VR, overclockers some love

For starters, GIGABYTE's second offering sports extra HDMI connectors, primarily for VR purposes. Then it "guarantees [...] higher overclocking capability." So it's safe to say it's not holding back, at least not much.

Other features include Windforce stack fans with alternate spinning design, 16.8M customizable colour lighting, aerospace-grade PCB coating, and four-year warranty with online registration.

ZOTAC's GeForce GTX 1080 AMP! Extreme is a BEAST, and we love it

Anthony Garreffa | May 30, 2016 4:18 AM CDT

Computex 2016 - ZOTAC was one of the first companies I wanted to visit at Computex this year, purely to check out their new GeForce GTX 1080 range of cards. They were just setting up as we rolled past, but the one card they had in their hands was the new GTX 1080 AMP! Extreme Edition.

ZOTAC's GeForce GTX 1080 AMP! Extreme is a BEAST, and we love it

ZOTAC's new GeForce GTX 1080 AMP! Extreme Edition is the company's flagship card, with a triple-fan cooling system and a custom heat sink that is just gigantic. We're sure this card is going to have some serious overclocks applied to the GPU and the 8GB of GDDR5X, but we can't confirm it just yet - this is something we should be able to clarify tomorrow.

The card is absolutely huge, but it actually weighs less than the GTX 980 Ti AMP! Extreme Edition. What I want to know is, how much faster will it be than the GTX 980 Ti AMP! Extreme Edition, which we'll find out soon.

EVGA's new GeForce GTX 1080 features ACX 3.0 cooling, and more

Anthony Garreffa | May 28, 2016 12:53 AM CDT

EVGA has chimed in with its new GeForce GTX 1080 video cards, announcing four new cards powered by NVIDIA's GP104 GPU.

The new cards feature EVGA's ACX 3.0 cooling tech, with SHP 3.0 providing better heat pipes and copper contact area for improved cooling performance, as well as optimized fan curves for quieter gaming. ACX 3.0 coolers feature optimized swept fan blades, double ball bearings and extreme low power motor, which pushes more air flow, with less power.

Select EVGA ACX 3.0 models will feature 10cm fans and RGB LEDs, which provides gamers with total control over the look of their card. The new EVGA cards also include PrecisionX OC software, that "unlocks the power of Pascal", says EVGA.

Colorful's new iGame GeForce GTX 1080 has stock GPU clock of 1.84GHz

Anthony Garreffa | May 28, 2016 12:40 AM CDT

We have yet to have received a Colorful sample here in our GPU labs from Colorful, but we've been in deep discussions with them for weeks now, and hopefully we can get our hands-on their exciting new GeForce GTX 1080 iGame card, which looks delicious.

Colorful's new GeForce GTX 1080 iGame card features a factory overclock on the GP104 GPU, which is at 1847MHz. Colorful has used their iGame-Modular Structure Design (i-MSD) on their GTX 1080, with their cooling technology being separated from the cooler into "functional modules and appearance modules which has the PCB, cooling fins and rear plate integrated centering on the PCB. The rear-plate also reinforces the PCB which gives the card extra durability and negates deformation from stress and long usage".

There's also customizable RGB lighting that can be tweaked through Colorful's iGame-Zone software, with the fans on the card composed by a three-piece grooved design, with interesting zigzag diversion lines on the edge for improved airflow and cooling efficiency with up to 30% increased air volume

GAINWARD's GeForce GTX 1080 Phoenix spotted with black/red/gold look

Anthony Garreffa | May 26, 2016 11:33 AM CDT

The leaks continue on the GeForce GTX 1080 partner cards, with news of the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1080 AMP! Extreme and ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 ROG STRIX cards both being somewhat detailed earlier today. Now it's time for GAINWARD.

The GAINWARD GeForce GTX 1080 Phoenix has been teased, with a completely redesigned cooler which has dropped from three fans to two. The fans are bigger, which has made the card wider, but that should allow the card to keep nice and cool, with the fans spinning at lower RPM. The shroud has three colors: black, red and gold, and it sure does look great. We're looking forward to getting our hands-on one soon!

The EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Superclocked ACX 3.0 features the latest ACX 3.0 cooling technology from the company, with dual ball bearing fans, a massive heat sink array, a full length backplate, and some vented accents. All in all, it's shaping up to be the best looking EVGA card yet (at least in my opinion). But what about performance? HotHardware reports that the new GeForce GTX 1080 Superclocked ACX 3.0 was "practically silent - even under load".

The site adds that "temperatures were a non-issue", and while the card was under low the GPU temperature "hovered in the high 70C-80C range". I'm now more excited than ever to get my hands-on this bad boy!

ZOTAC's new GeForce GTX 1080 AMP! spotted, a new record breaker?

Anthony Garreffa | May 26, 2016 9:28 AM CDT

It looks like ZOTAC is preparing to blow us all away once again with their take on NVIDIA's exciting new GeForce GTX 1080 video card. VideoCardz is reporting on the latest leak, teasing the new GTX 1080 AMP! Extreme from ZOTAC.

The ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1080 video cards will feature IceStorm fans with Carbon ExoArmor, PowerBoost, FREEZE and Spectra technologies. Spectra is new, with it arriving as a lighting system that allows users to change the LED illumination elements on the card, which are the strips along the top, and bottom of the card. The FREEZE tech allows the fans to turn off when the card sits in idle.

The new GTX 1080 AMP! series cards feature a custom backplate, with the PCB being modified completely, allowing for 2 x 8-pin PCIe power connectors. We don't know how much ZOTAC has done under the hood when it comes to clock speeds, but we're excited beyond words to see what ZOTAC can do. The company impressed us greatly with the GTX 980 Ti AMP! Extreme Edition, so I have large expectations of what the GTX 1080 cards will be.
