Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 Turbo OC 8G Released – See Specs and Features

Gigabyte recently released a new graphics card in addition to their GeForce GTX 1080 lineup, the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 Turbo OC 8GB (GV-N1080TTOC-8GD). The Gigabyte GTX 1080 Turbo OC features a blower type cooler with Turbo fan cooling system. The cooler shroud is a combination of black with orange accents and I think this one has the better looking blower type cooler design available, aside from the Founders Edition. More details below.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 Turbo OC 8G Features

The Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 Turbo OC 8G features a beefier blower type cooler with its WindForce Turbo fan built with 3x 6mm copper heatpipes that directly touches the GPU die. These heatpipes are then connected to an aluminum fin stack that also cools the memory and VRM chips. The cooler shroud looks unique and sleek but, I think it would be great if the orange highlights where RGB LEDs instead.

The Gigabyte GTX 1080 Turbo OC is clocked at 1632MHz base and 1771 boost out of the box. It can be overclocked to 1657MHz base and 1797MHz boost via Gigabyte’s Xtreme engine utility with a click of a button. The card is powered with a single 8-pin PCIe power connector and includes the usual output display connectors such as: DVI, HDMI and three DisplayPorts.

I don’t see anything really special about this card, except that the cooler shroud looks better compared to other blower type designs. And blower-type cooler is usually a better solution for smaller or compact cases where airflow inside the case is limited. Based on Gigabyte’s photos, I don’t think this has a backplate either.

Gigabyte hasn’t disclosed the price yet, but I’m guessing it will have a GTX 1080’s “non-Founders Edition” SRP. It could be priced at around $620 more or less (a rough estimate).

I love computers since I was a kid. I’m always fascinated with new technology, especially in the PC world. Many years ago, I was curious if the reviews I read were true and real. So, why not test them myself and share my first-hand experience? And thus, here we are. Thanks for reading!
