Today GIGABYTE unveiled a new addition to their range of graphics cards.
Called the GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming WaterForce WB it is a graphics card that combines the power of the Pascal architecture with an open-loop liquid solution that GIGABYTE unveiled.
In the OC mode, the card is clocked at 1,936MHz, with 12+2 power phases for a more stable voltage output.
The card also features full-spectrum RGB lighting along the edges, with a solid metal back plate and outputs for VR compatibility, via applications like the Xtreme VR Link application. It has 2 HDMI connectors on the card for use with VR devices and a monitor at the same time.
GIGABYTE explained more about it with the following:
Forged with the sorted XTREME GAMING-grade GPU, the card guarantees supreme overclocking capability without compromising system reliability. Clocked at 1936MHz in OC mode, the card delivers blazing fast gaming performance over the reference design and other competitions. The 12+2 power phases provide even more stable voltage output for serious overclocking. The use of premium-grade chokes and capacitors also ensure ultra durability for a longer system lifespan.
The card ignites the passion for gaming with full-spectrum RGB light glowing along the card edges. Users are free to customize with virtually unlimited color options and light effects using Xtreme Engine software for building a totally unique and personal gaming rig. The card is protected with a solid metal back plate to strengthen the structure, while giving it a sleek, premium look. The aerospace-grade PCB coating provides extra protection against moisture, dust and corrosive contaminants.
In terms of output, the card is ready for virtual reality applications with the Xtreme VR Link. This VR-friendly feature offers 2 additional HDMI connectors at the front of the card, providing gamers with extra output flexibility to connect VR devices while using HDMI monitors at the same time without the need of adaptors.
Unlike the conventional method of replacing the existing cooler with a third-party water block that would void the warranty, the GTX 1080 XTREME GAMING WATERFORCE WB ensures the users are well covered with the 3-year product warranty. By signing up as member of the XTREME GAMING Club and completing the online product registration, GIGABYTE will extend the product warranty from 3 to 4 years, giving owners extra peace of mind.
