ASUS GTX 1080 overview

  • 1Description

Based on NVIDIA's Pascal architecture and featuring a factory overclocked core, the ASUS Republic of Gamers Strix Gaming GeForce GTX 1080 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.

There are two DisplayPort 1.4 outputs in addition to two HDMI 2.0b outputs 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 GPU also has Aura RGB lighting with Modular Shroud so you can personalize your gaming style.

For cooling, ASUS implemented their DirectCU III Cooler. It features Triple Wing-Blade fan design and two 10mm direct-GPU contact heat-pipes, which transport heat away from the GPU. 0 dB technology allows for the card to be completely silent when the GPU remains at a set temperature. This type of cooler is most useful in medium to large towers where airflow inside the case is not a concern.

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.

    ASUS GTX 1080 reviews

    Republic of Gamers Strix Gaming GeForce GTX 1080 Graphics Card is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 32.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy Frame Rates! Ok so first let me say I upgraded from a GTX STRIX 1070 OC edition. I bought two of these 1080's but one was delivered earlier that the other so I tested out just 1 1080 not in SLI. And holy cow this 1 1080 is better then both of the 1070's together. On DOOM 2016 edition I was getting 100 FPS at 4K Res and everything set at nightmare! No stutter or anything! NEVER got above 65C!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love this card! Cant wait to see what two can do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome card I tried out the 1070 version of this before, which I thought was awesome, but I decided to upgrade to the highest end, non-TI 1080 available for under $600, and found this. I ran benchmarks with 3D Mark TimeSpy and Performance Test, and paired with my i7-6700k and 32 GB of DDR4 (2133 MHZ), my PC rated at 3800 on 3D Mark (4k Gaming is 3700+), and the GPU got a 14800 rating on passmark's benchmark (the highest card average on high end GPUs is right around 13000). The card hasn't gotten over 70 Celcius while gaming in 4k on Battlefield 1 multiplayer and Ghost Recon Wildlands using the pre-set GPU Tweak Gaming Mode. Extremely happy so far with this product, but I've only had it a couple of days so far. I also like how you can make the lights flash to music using the Aura utility.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great performance that runs incredibly cool I upgraded dual GTX 580s to this card and the results are fantastic. Using this card to render in Premiere, After Effects and Octane/Cinema 4D the temperaturehas yet to breach 49C. and it idles at around 25C.It hasn't even gotten hot enough to enable the cards threefans! Performancewise this card is fantastic. Dramaticdifference in preview render speed with Premiere. I'm glad I waited as long as I have to upgrade. From the research I've done, it's the best bang for your buck out there right now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strix is super This card rocks. It's very fast, very cool, stable and has lots of headroom. It's quiet and the LEDs are nice. It also has some extra nice features such as two hdmi ports for VR and a set of dedicated case fan headers. So far everything's perfect. No complaints or coil whine either. I was able to run benchmarks that beat my two previous 980s in sli. This was in unigine Valley. One 1080 beat two 980s and in other benchmarks it often came very close to doing that as well. Great card.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gaming hardware. This is pretty much state of the art in display adapters... except for the evenly more expensive $1,200 Nvidia Titan. I'm not sure if that's for games, actually, Nvidia has various exotic uses for their technology, none of which I actually understand. I've tried it at ultimate settings for several hard core games like Obduction and Bioshock Infinate and they look great. They'll output sound to your monitor which is pretty handy. All and all a great piece of gaming hardware.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad. I normally go with EVGA but with the heat issues and VRM issues I had to go somewhere else for my new card. So far the ASUS 1080 has been solid. If anyone buys one of these for 1080p gaming you're better off with the 1070, i have been playing at 1080p waiting for my new 4k tv and i can tell you this card barely gets used at 1080p.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10/10 it's ok Awsome card for gaming and editing, Premiere definitly favours the cards peformance and i really saw a boost in everything i've been doing so far. It is also the first time that i can use my 180hz monitor to the fullest without worrying about issues. If you are looking for a card for 1080p/1440p max settings and high refreshrate or 4k with stable 60fps then this card is for you.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great card Great card for gameing or mining, i do the latter. Want to purchase quite a few more because the price wasn't too unreasonablely over MSRP compaired to other websites/seller's listing prices. Unfortunately B&H has followed suit and raised their listed price for this card to a level I refuse to even consider. I understand their reasoning I guess but still... it's disappointing because I was willing to buy quite a few more of these cards at their previous listed price of $730ish. It's a great card for mining that's easily tweeked for better hashrates and because of the previous price my return on investment was still under 7-8 months. For the gamers out there, it's a tough and expensive market right now. YouTube channel 'Gamers Nexus' has a great explanation on the reasoning behind the shortages.
