Asus rog strix geforce gtx 1080 ti 11gb oc edition graphics card review

  -  

Two weeks ago we took a look at an amazing graphics thẻ from NVIDIA, the Quadro P6000. If you noticed in that review, we had another high-end graphics card from hãng asus in the graphs, the ROG STRIX GeForce GTX 1080. We picked this card up about six months ago & have been very happy with it. Our workstation uses two Xeon E5-2699 V3 processors which we also game on with a 4K display (3840×2160). Currently, the game that puts the most căng thẳng on our system is Star Citizen; the STRIX 1080 handled it with no issues with very smooth gameplay. Everything was running very good. Of course, with the introduction of the 1080Ti, we had to lớn upgrade. Fast forward lớn about three lớn four weeks ago we saw the asus ROG STRIX GeForce GTX 1080 TI 11GB OC Edition making the rounds on different reviews sites & decided that we must have one. 

The STRIX Ti OC version was a hot selling thẻ with limited stocks available & seemed to be out of stock everywhere. It did become available for about an hour at Newegg, & we grabbed one. Being very impressed with the STRIX 1080 we were very excited khổng lồ run the TI OC version through our benchmarks.
