We all knew from the outset that ASUS would kick ass with their ROG Strix GTX 1080 Ti graphics card, and here we are - yet another custom GTX 1080 Ti that excels. Even when the card is under 100% stress, it barely edges over 65C, thanks to its impressive triple-fan cooling set up, and ASUS' attention to detail with its heat sink array.
The ASUS ROG Strix GTX 1080 Ti provides Titan X level performance at a much cheaper price, with games like Rise of the Tomb Raider hitting 129FPS average at 2560x1440 in DX12, compared to 120FPS on the TITAN X(P) and 119FPS on the GTX 1080 Founders Edition.
If you're gaming at 4K, you're in good hands with the ASUS ROG Strix GTX 1080 Ti. You'll see the same 10%+ additional performance over the TITAN X (P). We're looking at 60FPS average in great looking games like Rise of the Tomb Raider and Far Cry Primal. Even Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and Metro: Last Light Redux enjoy 60FPS+ at 4K on the ASUS GTX 1080 Ti STRIX OC.
If you were building a new high-end gaming PC and were building it with any enthusiast-class ASUS ROG motherboard, and needed an enthusiast graphics card to match it, there would be no question in recommending the ASUS ROG Strix GTX 1080 Ti. It's slick, it's freaking fast, and it sips power... not devours it.
ASUS has crafted a card that doesn't run hot at all under gaming conditions, definitely not as hot as rendering or cryptocurrency mining on the card, throwing it into overdrive and heating it up beyond normal use. Even then, the ASUS ROG Strix GTX 1080 Ti doesn't reach above 70-75C or so, and with a few tweaks, I could get it under 70C under full, above normal load with cryptocurrency mining.
In gaming situations, the ASUS ROG Strix GTX 1080 Ti handles itself like a boss. 4K 60FPS+ in today's games is a great point to hit, and high FPS in 1080p and 1440p native resolutions is perfect. Two of these would ensure you wouldn't need to upgrade your gaming PC for a while yet, if the game's you're playing have SLI support, that is.
At the end of the day, ASUS ROG Strix GTX 1080 Ti is a monster. Amazing performance and thermals mixed with slick looks, it's a no brainer - buy it, you won't regret it.
