Folks, most of us are already familiar with graphics cards that have a single, dual or triple cooling fan configuration – but seeing one with four fans isn’t something that we’d see everyday. Palit has unveiled its newest custom graphics card called the GTX 1080 Ti GameRock and amazingly, it does come with four open air cooling fans.
Now, you’d probably think that a graphics card with four cooling fans would be overwhelmingly long, right? Well, this isn’t the case with Palit’s GTX 1080 Ti GameRock. How is this possible? According to the company, the cooling fans (dubbed as TurboJET4) are placed on top of each other.
This, of course, gives an impression that the Palit GTX 1080 Ti GameRock only comes with two cooling fans, instead of four. Speaking of which, one other interesting feature about this graphics card is the fact that the front and back cooling fans are spinning in opposite directions of each other (anti-vortex).
Those aside, when it comes to performance, the GTX 1080 Ti GameRock doesn’t disappoint – at least on paper. The base and boost clock speeds of this graphics card is rated at 1518MHz and 1632MHz respectively. As expected, Palit will also release factory overclocked version of this graphics card called the GTX 1080 Ti GameRock Platinum Edition. It’ll come with clock speeds of 1594MHz (base) and 1708MHz (boost).
Unfortunately, the price and date of availability for Palit’s GTX 1080 Ti GameRock graphics cards were not mentioned. That said, judging by its features, we do expect it to come with a ‘premium’ price tag upon release.
