The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is our new flagship gaming GPU, based on the award-winning NVIDIA Pascal™ architecture. The latest addition to the ultimate gaming platform, this card is packed with extreme gaming horsepower, next-gen 11 Gbps GDDR5X memory, and a massive 11 GB frame buffer.
This is the third “80 Ti” card Nvidia has introduced, following the 780 Ti and 980 Ti. The Ti brand normally means a £100 premium over the regular “80” card, but with performance that looks forward to the next generation of games and monitors – and that’s exactly what the 1080 Ti is. This monstrous card is what Nvidia hopes will carry early adopters into the era of next-gen VR, high-refresh-rate 4K gaming and even 5K.
With an extreme weight of 1.568kg, this card is a whopper, to be sure. It measures 31cm from the slot bracket's outer edge to the shroud's back. A 13cm height is slightly shorter than other GeForce GTX 1080 Tis we've reviewed, and a thickness of 5.3cm is a little slimmer, too.
If you turn the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti AMP Extreme over in your hands, it's apparent that Zotac's backplate wraps around on the top and back, helping stabilize the frame a bit. The plate's primary purpose is to look pretty, though.
It’s the most expensive Ti product ever, but for those who can stump up the cash, it’s a card that really looks to the future.
The top and bottom sides of the shroud from the center have been implemented in an aluminum looking plate and it is designed in such a way that it blends in perfectly with the overall design. We have three 90mm Apistek fans with the maximum speed of 3000 RPM. ZOTAC is pasted on the center of the fans on the motor hub which really looks cool in person. Such grayish tone on the metallic plate really gives the user premium look and feel.
We have white color plates on the top and the bottom sides of the shroud. These are the RGB LED zones that have been implemented on the graphics card. Push the Limit is inscribed on the top middle plate under the ZOTAC brand name. The top and bottom white color plates formulate the one RGB LED lighting zone.
- Semi-passive triple-fan cooler
- Stylish RGB-LED lighting
- High GPU base clock: 1645 MHz
- High GPU boost clock: 1759 MHz
- 11 GB GDDR5X VRAM
- Aggressively-clocked VRAM: 5.600 MHz (11.200 MHz effective)
- 3.584 CUDA Cores
- Additional PCIe power connectors: 2x 8 Pin
The backside of the graphics card has a stylish Metallic Wraparound backplate with RGB LED zone. For ZOTAC customers, it would be apparent that there are no yellow colored lines on this card. In my opinion, this is a wise move as this card has RGB LEDs to enable the users to color coordinate with their build's theme. ZOTAC in white color lights up during operation and this is our third RGB LED Zone.
