Why you can trust Tom's Hardware Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test.
There's no reason to test a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti at 1920x1080; at that resolution, even our high-end host processor bottlenecks performance. Rather, these cards are designed for 2560x1440 and up.
At QHD, the Aorus GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Xtreme Edition 11G is, depending on the game, between eight and ~11 percent faster than Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition or the Titan X (Pascal).
At this high resolution, Aorus' GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Xtreme Edition 11G is between eight and 10 percent faster than the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition and Titan X (Pascal) cards.
Many of these titles are playable at 4K. Those that aren't can be made smoother by dialing down the quality settings somewhat.

It takes 3 slots!? OMG, this is getting ridiculous...Reply
2,5 slots. As the most of these fat cards ;)Reply
I wait till this cards drop under $300...Reply
Although by then I might want "that other new one" ....
Correction. In the specs chart, the Titan's memory bus is listed as 38-bit. Should be 384.Reply
At that absurd price point you would think there would be more generosity than the inclusion of one of the most common elements on the planet! Thanks but no thanks, I will remain a smart shopper and wait until the price point comes down to a realistic one!Reply
Expensive is relative. Mostly all non-smokers have money enough. It is the question, which priority you set. :)Reply
Will you be reviewing any of the 1080ti cards with closed loop coolers?Reply
If I get one as sample, yes. But closed loop isn't a solution. This are more or less toys.Reply
I must say I think I got a Golden Sample then, my card stays at a stable 2012MHz GPU clock under 65C with fans @ 75% Just waiting on EK to get their block ready so I can add it to my loop!Reply
As I wrote in my review - it is a pure lotto. The test sample is running with GPU- und VRM-Waterblock with the AB Extreme and 1.093 Volts at 20°C (chiller) stable 2166 MHz. Other cards neets 1.2 Volts (I have a NO2 BIOS from another card) to crack the 2100 MHz barrier stable. If you buy a card, you get no warranty which GPU quality you get.Reply
