Final Thoughts


Price

First, you should pull up a comfortable seat and then pour yourself a stiff drink, because the flagship card from ASUS doesn’t come cheap. Even if you’re doing well financially, £799.99 is still enough to make your wallet tremble with fear. While it’s a shame that cards like this cost so much, this is enthusiast hardware and far beyond what most consumers truly need. Therefore, if you want the best, expect to pay up for it.

Overview

The performance on this graphics card is absolutely mental. It’s like hammering in a thumbtack with a sledgehammer in terms of its rendering power. In every benchmark we ran, it decimated the competition by an embarrassing margin. The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti card was already thundering ahead of the GTX 1080, and the RoG STRIX edition is even faster, cooler, and quieter; it’s also more expensive, but hey, what ya gonna do! Therefore, I’ll speak no more of the performance; it’s as black and white as “it’s the best we’ve ever tested.”

The build quality on this card is pretty hardcore too, with a large cooling shroud over one of the biggest GPU heatsinks I’ve ever seen. However, this does mean that the card is incredibly heavy. A thick metal backplate, which adds more weight its self, does help keep it straight and true. Also, the power delivery system has been heavily upgraded with much more durable hardware. A robust set of chokes and two 8-pin PCI power connectors give this power hungry card the stable voltages it requires to deliver such… ah, I said I wasn’t talking about the performance again.

It’s a hard card to discuss without sounding like you’re treading into hyperbole, but credit where credit is due. It’s a fantastic card, it looks great with all its RGB thrills, it’s super quiet and even completely silent in low loads, and it hails from one of the biggest and most widely known gaming brands in the world. If you can afford it, it’ll be an impressive upgrade no matter what card you’re already running.

Pros

  • Insanely fast performance
  • Incredible aesthetics
  • Good display connectivity
  • Two system fan headers
  • Powerful and quiet cooling
  • Zero RPM fan mode

Cons

  • The price, £800 big ones is a tough pill to swallow

“If you want to get the absolute best performance while gaming at 4K, on high refresh rate displays, multi-display Surround, and VR, then the ASUS RoG STRIX GTX 1080 Ti is going to put a huge smile on your face. Most important of all, you’ll barely remember the price after you’ve taken it for a few rounds in your favourite game.”

Extreme Performance
