Gigabyte GTX 1080 Ti coverage came from a video of HardwareCanucks, who managed to view a selection of Gigabyte products at CES 2017. That includes Gigabyte’s motherboards, GPUs and few other products. Furthermore, in the video, HardwareCanucks showcases an upcoming Aorus graphics card which most probably is a Gigabyte GTX 1080 Ti.

The card shown in the video has dual 8-pin PCIe power connectors, two SLI fingers and a custom backplate which features RGB illumination. Check out the video to see more. Moreover, the Aorus graphics card is similar to ASUS current high-end Strix GPU.

Regarding the premium feels and high-end looks of the model, it is said as:

This is Gigabyte’s new Aorus GPU, which is based upon Gigabyte Xtreme design but incorporates a few minor cosmetic changes. Now I say new because the actual graphics core here is so new that we can’t even tell you what it is. Let’s just say it will be launching from Nvidia very soon. And the positioning of Aorus as a premium high-end brand matches perfectly with this core’s target market. It will certainly be interesting spring time at HardwareCanucks offices.

From the looks of it, the hardware comes with SLI compatibility, moreover as hinted by HardwareCanucks that it is due under testing by spring 2017. This confirms the rumors that the launch of GTX 1080 Ti will more likely commence at PAX East 2017. Be sure not to miss the event, it is due in March.

Nvidia currently is holding back its seat and not revealing officially its next high-end GPU card. Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 and PASCAL X TITAN are already doing a good job in terms of performance, efficiency and making money for Nvidia.
