Aorus is the premium gaming hardware brand from Gigabyte and we have seen some great products from the sub-brand. These products include top of the line gaming motherboards and gaming laptops and now it seems that the first Aorus GPU is also out. The GPU in question here is the Gigabyte Aorus GTX 1080.
The Gigabyte Aorus GTX 1080 is similar in design as compared to the Gigabyte GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming 8G. We can see a triple fan design and there is VR support and you also get an extra HDMI port to easily connect your VR headset.
At the back of the Gigabyte Aorus GTX 1080, we see a backplate and a copper block that will be for water cooling. A solution that will be interesting to see somewhere down the line. Putting the Gigabyte Aorus GTX 1080 and the Gigabyte GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming 8G side by side, the only difference we see is in the color of the GPUs and the logo stickers that are placed on the cards.
Gigabyte Aorus has already impressed us with their motherboard line and laptops. It is interesting to see that the company is also making some efforts in the GPU department. It will be interesting to see what the brand will do with the upcoming GTX 1080Ti but we hope to see something different than what Gigabyte will offer.
