AORUS sent me over the GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Edition 8G at such a bad time, as I had to fly from Australia to the United States for Qualcomm's awesome 5G event, and then I flew back home - and then back to the US just 5 days later for GDC 2017, AMD's Capsaicin & Cream event, and NVIDIA's Editor's Day 2017 during GDC for their GeForce GTX 1080 Ti unveiling.

130 hours+ of flying and airports in 10 days, so I was completely ruined inside and out - and had to delay the review of the AORUS GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Edition 8G - so to Ross, and GIGABYTE/AORUS - I apologize. I wrote a brief article looking over the GTX 1080 Xtreme Edition 8G, but now we're going to look at the performance of the card - as I've waited to test it on the new GeForce 378.78 drivers, which provide some wicked performance improvements on DX12 games.

I've also included the newly released Ghost Recon: Wildlands as a new benchmark, so prepare for some big changes here in the GPU side of TweakTown. As for the AORUS GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Edition 8G, we'll cover pricing and availability here - before diving into a closer look at the card itself, benchmarks, my performance analysis, and final thoughts.
