Gigabyte GTX 1080 G1 overview

  • 1Description

With an overclocked core and based on NVIDIA's Pascal architecture, the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 G1 Gaming Graphics Card provides major improvements in performance, memory bandwidth, and power efficiency over its predecessor, the high-performance Maxwell architecture. It also introduces innovative graphics features and technologies that redefine the computer as the platform for playing AAA games and taking full advantage of virtual reality via NVIDIA VRWorks.

The front panel of the card features a variety of outputs. There are three DisplayPort 1.4 outputs in addition to an HDMI 2.0b output and a DVI-D Dual-Link output. The GTX 1080 is not just about high-resolution gaming. Computationally intensive programs can utilize the GPU's 2560 cores to accelerate tasks using CUDA or other APIs.

This card features Gigabyte's WINDFORCE 3X cooling system. The cooling system uses three large fans with swept blades to whisk away hot air and lower the GPU's internal temperature. The card also has customizable RGB lighting, which supports up to 16.8 million colors. There are numerous lighting options so you can pick the right scheme for your gaming rig through the XTREME Engine utility.

VRWorks Graphics includes a simultaneous multi-projection capability that renders natively to the unique dimensions of VR displays instead of traditional 2D monitors. It also renders geometry for the left and right eyes simultaneously in a single pass.

VRWorks Audio uses the NVIDIA OptiX ray-tracing engine to trace the path of sounds across an environment in real-time, fully reflecting the size, shape, and material of the virtual world.

NVIDIA PhysX for VR detects when a hand controller interacts with a virtual object, and enables the game engine to provide a physically accurate visual and haptic response. It also models the physical behavior of the virtual world around the user so that all interactions -- whether an explosion or a hand splashing through water -- behave as if in the real world.
With Ansel, gamers can compose the gameplay shots they want, pointing the camera in any direction and from any vantage point within a gaming world. They can capture screenshots at up to 32 times the screen resolution, and then zoom in where they choose without losing fidelity. With photo-filters, they can add effects in real-time before taking the shot. And they can capture 360-degree stereo photospheres for viewing in a VR headset or Google Cardboard.
SLI Ready
With a compatible motherboard and a connecting bracket, two or more NVIDIA GPUs of the same model can combine processing power using NVIDIA's Scalable Link Interface (SLI). How the cards work together can be customized to suit your preferences. Alternate frame rendering has each alternating card prepare the next frame, essentially multiplying the capabilities of a single card's maximum capable frame rate output. Each card in the configuration can also be used to improve anti-aliasing by being able to process an image in parallel with the other cards before filtering out jagged edges.

NVIDIA's SLI HB bridge doubles the available transfer bandwidth compared to the NVIDIA Maxwell architecture. Delivering smooth gameplay, it's an effective way to enjoy surround gaming and it's only compatible with the GeForce GTX 1080 graphics cards.

Note: The benefits of SLI will vary based on component configuration.
With CUDA, NVIDIA allows applications to hand off CPU-intensive tasks to the GPU. Your GPU is no longer just used for rendering graphics, but it can provide teraflops of floating point performance and accelerate application tasks, from real-time video rendering to fluid dynamics simulation. CUDA is used in many applications and games.
G-SYNC Ready
When used with a monitor that has G-SYNC hardware installed, the monitor's refresh rate will sync and lock with the graphics card's output frame rate. Establishing this sync removes tearing and stuttering which can result from conventional fixed screen refresh rates, especially important for gaming in stereoscopic 3D. An additional benefit of G-SYNC is reduced lag so gamers will benefit from the improved command response time as well.
NVIDIA GPU Boost 3.0
Boosts the card's clock speed in real-time based on the target temperature. If the card is running below the set target temperature, GPU Boost 3.0 will increase the clock speed to improve performance. The target temperature can be reset depending on your preference so you can have the card run more quietly for everyday tasks and older games, and run at full tilt during intense high-resolution gaming sequences.

    Gigabyte GTX 1080 G1 reviews

    GeForce GTX 1080 G1 Gaming Graphics Card is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than my laptop. Hope it lasts 5+ years. The truth of the matter is I don't know much about computers or benchmarks or anything like that. I went from an ASUS laptop that was 5+ years old and being knocked to 0 FPS for a good 10 seconds at the start of a boss fight in World of Warcraft to now actually being able to see the beginning of a boss fight and holding somewhere between 35-120 FPS depending on what's happening at the time. I'm also someone that typically sets everything to medium settings, but right now I can play all my games at max settings without issue, and that makes me happy. Here's hoping it lasts for 5+ years before I upgrade again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great GTX 1080 line card at a great price As usual from B&H the best pricing and service I can find. Always ships fast and precise orders, and quick access to B&H over the phone for any questions. I know this is a review of the merchandise which for these products are already market proven, however B&H adds to the ease of procurement and the best overall price making a great product even better due to the experience with B&H. Shop it out on amazon, you will be back to B&H with the excellent support and knowledge about the product as an added bonus. I have been working with B&H for years and if they carry the product I need they are my first call now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would buy again. Purchased for gaming computer build with I7 6700k, MSI Krait z170 gaming 3x mobo. Pros: Quiet.... no coil wjine Adjustable RGB lighting Great FPS in 1080p Only one 8 pin connector Cons: Lighting is kind of dim at the end of the GIGABYTE logo. Back panel for hdmi / display connectors is bright metal would like black better I have no real complaints with performance. I really wanted the MSI Gaming x but it did not fit the color scheme of the build. I don't think in real world performance you could honestly tell the difference between the two GPU's. Happy for the price!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is not a CPU! Great gpu I use for gaming. Can almost run 4k with an average of 135 fps with high settings. If you give and take with AA and other display settings, you can have Ultra textures and have 144 fps with most games. Will mostly likely SLI to have more power and run 4k with Ultra settings without my fps dropping. Overall, great gpu.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value, great performance. Not bad at the price point I paid, for about the same money as a Xbox one X, you can have more than twice the graphics power. Runs cool and quiet in the OC mode. No coil whine detectable. Highly recommended to pair a 144hz 1440p gsync monitor with this. I went with dell. I expect this setup will last me more than 5 years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Card Great FPS on all games in Ultra on 1080p Less Power consumption and noise compared to my last card (gtx 5650) Laughs at my 1080p resolution Great room for overlocking if you're into that just I wish it came with an SLI bridge. only downside is i get my 2 cards and a week later ya get Gears of War 4 is free

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great graphics card - cheaper than anywhere else! Amazing quality and easily installable into my computer tower. Despite being only an 8-pin power requirement, unlike 16 in my previous graphics card, the card performs well, and vastly better than any graphics cards I've had before. Amazing quality and arrived sooner than I had expected!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best custom PCB card One of the best GTX 1080 card out there with custom PCB that only takes one 8-pin power. Other custom PCB cards takes more than one 8-pin power. It also overclocks very well, running most of my games at max with 1440p resolution.
