Since the card was officially revealed to the world last month, we have begun to see a steady stream of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti being released into Malaysia. Among manufacturers that have recently launched their GTX 1080 Ti cards into our market is ASUS which currently has two such cards in Malaysia at the moment.
One of them is the ROG Strix GTX 1080 Ti OC Edition which is currently the second highest end GTX 1080 Ti model within ASUS GTX 1080 Ti line-up. It goes without saying that the card is clocked way higher than NVIDIA’s Founders Edition setup with base speed of 1,594 MHz and boost clock of 1,708 MHz alongside memory speed of 11,100 MHz.
That being said, users do need to enable the card’s OC Mode in order to access those clock speed which can be done using ASUS GPU Tweak II software. Still, the card’s default base, boost, and memory clock speed of 1569 MHz, 1683 MHz, and 11010 MHz respectively are already higher than the specifications of Founders Edition card.
In order to dissipate the heat that comes from ROG Strix GTX 1080 Ti, ASUS has implemented a massive heat sink on its GPU together with a set of three dust-resistance fans that would be automatically deactivated if the card’s temperature is low enough. The company has implemented 10+2 power phases design using its propeitry Super Alloy Power II components to ensure the card’s stability.
Of course, the card also features Aura Sync-enabled RGB lights as well as a backplate. Readily available in Malaysia, the ROG Strix GTX 1080 Ti OC Edition is priced at RM 4,299 but if that’s too much, consumers still have the option to obtain the slightly less wild Founders Edition variant from ASUS at RM 3,899.
