Gigabyte announces blower-style GTX 1080 Turbo OC Edition graphics card
Gigabyte today added a new variant to the GeForce GTX 1080 lineup with the release of the blower-style GTX 1080 Turbo OC Edition graphics card. The new Gigabyte GTX 1080 Turbo OC Edition card delivers incredible gaming performance in a cool and quiet operation. The shroud of GTX 1080 Turbo OC Edition gives a sleek yet powerful look with its angular lines and orange accents. Underneath the shroud the card uses the highest-grade chokes and capacitors to ensure outstanding performance and durable system lifespan. In case of any power abnormality, gamers could easily visualize the issue at hand with the smart power LED indicator adjacent to the 8-pin power connector.
Built around a radial fan, the Gigabyte Turbo Fan cooling system incorporates 3 pure copper composite heat-pipes with direct touch to the GPU for more efficient heat dissipation, together increasing the cooling capacity up to 8% compared to the Founder’s edition. The blower fan is designed to push the heated air out of the PC case through the rear exhaust to keep the system cool. With its blower design and compact profile, the card is also ideal when stacked closely together for SLI configuration.
Built for overclocking, the card is further backed by an 8+2 phase power design for load balance that effectively extends the stability and longevity with lower component temperature. It ultimately allows greater overclocking headroom, reinforcing higher, stable boost clocks for running graphically demanding games. The one-click overclock via XTREME Engine Utility let gamers tune the card for the ultimate gaming experience with a simple mouse click.
