Amazingly, this incredibly fast card is just £544.97 right now. That’s still a lot of money, I’m not crazy. However, it’s a pretty big lump cheaper than many of its rivals. Some rival 11 Gbps cards are still priced around £600, making this exceptional value for money.
This card is insanely good value for money. For those seeking their gaming thrills in the worlds of VR, High Frame Rate monitors, or Ultra HD resolutions, it’s a no brainer. It’s around £150-200 cheaper than the 1080 Ti, for the most part. It’ll blast through any game you want to play and deliver blazing fast performance that’s hard to ignore.
That’s a tricky one, I’m really not sure. This card packs all the big hitting features. It has a backplate, and copper hardware, with 3 x 100mm fans, so it’s not a cheap bit of cooling. It has all the RGB thrills you would expect to find in modern gaming hardware too. Let’s not forget, it has dual display connections on the other end for chassis pass through. That’s a great feature for VR users. It’s factory overclocked to a high degree, has 11 Gbps memory, the list goes on. Long story short, I don’t know how it’s so affordable, at least for a GTX 1080.
I think this card looks a little tacky, I love it, but it doesn’t look particularly sleek. The big X on the top looks a bit out of place, but there’s RGB lighting on the X which is pretty fun. Of course, I think that was intentional that it looks a bit “out there” and it’s an extremely subjective aspect anyway.
A full-size backplate, a chunky cooler, powerful and quiet fans, and more go a long way to making this card robust. It looks great, and it feels it too. Some of the components, such as the LED lit X have some flex to them, but it’s not like you’ll be touching those daily, so it’s not a big issue, at all. It is a thick card though, so be sure to measure your spacing if you’re wanting to pair two of them together.
