Aorus XTREME RTX 2080 Ti
There are plenty of choices for those wanting to invest in an RTX series graphics card right now. From the more affordable RTX 2070 to the flagship RTX 2080 Ti’s. However, the ones that keep catching our attention are the Aorus Xtreme models, which are currently some of the fastest clocked Nvidia RTX cards on the market. Not only that, but they have one of the most impressive cooler designs of this generation, helping ensure they deliver class-leading performance. We’ve already been blown away by the Xtreme 2070, and the Xtreme 2080, now the Xtreme 2080 Ti is here and it’s aiming for the #1 spot on our charts. Let’s go break some records!
Everything about this card is dialled up to 11. There’s a big factory overclock, pushing the speeds to 1770 MHz right out of the box. Power delivery comes from 2 x 8-pin GPU headers, through a whopping 16+3 power phase design. Furthermore, this is helped along by the 3 x 100mm Windforce Stack cooler, and metal backplate.

What AORUS Had to Say
“AORUS leads the industry in creating a new RGB three-ring light effect that takes advantage of the persistence of human vision. A single fan uses LED lighting to illuminate with the fan’s speed to create an ever-changing surprise. Any lighting mode can be perfectly represented by setting the LED lighting timing. So far, AORUS is the only one who can provide this amazing lighting effect.”
What’s in the Box?
Of course, you’ll find that lovely GPU. However, since the card is quite big and heavy, it also comes with a GPU anti-sag kit.
This little stand is nicely made and can be extended as required, and the support arm can be adjusted up and down to suit. It’s a pretty neat little extra, I love it!
