Gigabyte has released a teaser for the Aorus RTX 2080 Ti Xtreme. The Turing GPU comes with three slot coolers, 12+2 phases and seven display connectors.
For over a month now, orders for the new Turing RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards have been running at full speed. At first, there are many high-end graphics cards. Interestingly, one of the leading GPU manufacturers has not yet put the high-end model in the market. That is because Gigabyte brought to market only one RTX 2080 Windforce and one RTX 2080 Gaming-OC, which look similar to each other. The absolute high-end model with the name Aorus still was not present. And now the Taiwanese company is doing its job by presenting the Aorus RTX 2080 Ti Xtreme.
In the published teaser, a gigabyte employee comments exactly on the new design of the Aorus RTX 2080 Ti Xtreme. It comes with a gigantic three-slot cooling design and some special tricks. Gigabyte has installed three 100mm fans. The central fan is located one level below the two external fans and rotates in the opposite direction to avoid airflow turbulence. Of course, the fans also have a new built-in RGB lighting. Underneath is a large refrigerator with copper heatpipes, which rest directly on the GPU. At the top, there is a metal backplate with the Aorus logo illuminated RGB. In general, Gigabyte no longer uses the typical orange color for this year’s generation, but only gray, silver and black accents in combination with RGB lighting.
The Aorus RTX 2080 Ti Xtreme design also includes a large number of display connectors. Gigabyte not only uses the three mandatory display ports, a USB-C port for VirtualLink and an HDMI port, it also uses two additional HDMI ports. In two rows in the slot support, the client can choose between HDMI and Displayport. The card can simultaneously control four displays and one virtual reality device.
The power design is also new. So there are 12+2 phases for the graphics chip and the graphics memory. It will result in the Aorus RTX 2080 Ti Xtreme graphics cards having the best chips. This selects both Nvidia and Gigabyte, which is currently accompanied by a curiosity. Consequently, the board partner does not set a clock for graphics cards. This is the case for many Turing GPUs. Now Gigabyte can first test how many chips for the desired clock level actually come out during binding and tune something if necessary. At the moment, it is still unknown when the Aorus RTX 2080 Ti Xtreme will appear. Gigabyte only mentions that there is a four-year warranty on the registration of a product within 20 days.
