Gigabyte has unveiled its latest graphics card called the GTX 1080 TT. Hold your horses though folks, this isn’t based off of a new, unreleased graphics card by Nvidia (hint: GTX 1080 Ti). It is, in fact, a new custom GTX 1080 graphics card by Gigabyte, which features a striking cooler shroud and interesting blower-style cooling fan as well.
Aesthetically, the Gigabyte GTX 1080 TT come with an edgy-looking cooler, which is dashed in a matte black and orange colour scheme. Amidst the fancy shroud is where Gigabyte has placed a blower-style cooling fan, which is also found on most reference Nvidia and Radeon graphics card. From the looks of it, the cooler shroud on the GTX 1080 TT may have been made from hard plastic instead of metal.
According to the folks at TechPowerUp, the GTX 1080 TT will feature three 6mm-thick copper heatpipes that are in direct contact with the GPU. In addition, an aluminium plate will be cooling the GDDR5X memory modules along with the VRMs. Performance-wise, the Gigabyte GTX 1080 TT will feature factory overclocked base and boost clock speeds of 1632MHz and 1772MHz respectively – these are higher under ‘OC Mode’. Meanwhile, power is drawn from a single 8-pin power connector.
Unfortunately, Gigabyte has not mentioned the price and date of availability of the GTX 1080 TT graphics card, but it is said that the graphics card may be the most affordable custom GTX 1080 by the company. We do expect Gigabyte to announce more information regarding this graphics card soon.
