Final Thoughts

 

COLORFUL has come out swinging with their iGame GTX 1080 Vulcan X OC, which hits a market that is strong - it's not all about the GTX 1080 Ti. The GeForce GTX 1080 is still a powerhouse card for 1080p and 1440p gamers, and the custom iGame GTX 1080 Vulcan X OC kicks out more than enough performance to enjoy 60FPS+ in most games.

The LCD is a great touch, and while it's not something you're going to be looking at in the middle of your game, for tweakers, it's a second home. The stats you need right on the card itself, perfect. For modders, the iGame GTX 1080 Vulcan X OC is a great fit because of its style. You could craft a really awesome looking gaming PC around the style of the card, with an LCD showing MSI Afterburner or GPU-Z, for example.

The inclusion of a 'Turbo' button brings me back to my 486; I loved pressing it. But really, it's just something new for a market that is different to what we're used to in the US. I think all graphics cards should have turbo buttons, that crank everything to 100% including the fans.

Finishing up, COLORFUL has sparked interest in the GTX 1080 market with their new iGame GTX 1080 Vulcan X OC with some daring style and the inclusion of the LCD display. If you're on the fence about a new GTX 1080 and can get COLORFUL's new iGame GTX 1080 Vulcan X OC in your country, you will not be disappointed here.
