I stepped into the boots of reviewing graphics cards for TweakTown in late 2014, and since then, I've been changing things up and reviewing more cards than ever. There have been a few brands I haven't been able to get my hands-on, and one of those is GIGABYTE. That all changes today, however.
We're now working with someone new at GIGABYTE's graphics card marketing department, who has sent me four graphics cards in NVIDIA's new GeForce GTX 10 series range. We have the GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1080 G1 Gaming and GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming graphics cards, as well as their GeForce GTX 1070 G1 Gaming and Xtreme Gaming graphics cards.
The first to get to my door was GIGABYTE's surprisingly impressive GeForce GTX 1080 G1 Gaming, and I'm going to walk you through why I think it's the most surprising GeForce GTX 1080 yet.
GIGABYTE has spent the last couple of years nailing their graphics cards, quickly becoming one of the toughest competitors in the market - standing proudly next to the likes of ZOTAC, MSI, and ASUS. GIGABYTE has been putting considerable time into board design and cooling technology, where their design and cooling chops have been put to the true test on NVIDIA's next-gen GeForce GTX 1080.
Pricing & Availability
There's still not much stock of NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1080 (or the GTX 1070) so the pricing on GIGABYTE's GeForce GTX 1080 G1 Gaming is quite high right now. At the time of writing, the GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1080 G1 Gaming was listed on Amazon for $799.98.
