All gamers do not want to have trouble playing games. Problems in the game are also many kinds, ranging from technical errors such as bugs to performance problems. The thing that makes a headache is when the game can not run optimally because the hardware is already not supported, especially if the graphics card used is out of date.
However, there are still gamers who do not know which graphics card is suitable for them. Actually, all will be easy if you have a very large fund. Simply buy premium PC components and all games I guarantee can run without a hitch. That’s what I can conclude when testing the ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce GTX 1080 Ti OC Edition graphics card.
From the name, you should know that this graphics card is not cheap and equipped with technology and top-class features. ASUS uses a three-fan cooling system with a patented custom technology. Unlike the previous cooling system, this time ROG STRIX GeForce GTX 1080 Ti OC Edition has a thicker heatsink so cooling more leverage.
In addition, ASUS also uses a special technology called MaxContact where the heatsink surface attached directly to the GPU is made even more flat to maximize heat absorption. The fan on this new cooling system has also been patented with the design of Wing Blade which is claimed to bring air pressure up to 105 percent better. Of course, the fan is compatible with ASUS Fan Connect app.
Matter of durability, ASUS also claims ROG STRIX GeForce GTX 1080 Ti OC Edition comes with premium components and is made using an automation technology called ASUS Auto Extreme. The technology enables the graphics card to be fully assembled by the engine so that components are placed with high accuracy and avoid “human error” invoices.
The ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce GTX 1080 Ti OC Edition has five display outputs consisting of two HDMIs, two DisplayPort, and one DVI. Thus, this graphics card is perfect for use with virtual reality headsets.
While for you who like the PC look attractive, ASUS also provides RGB LED on this graphics card. Surely it has been equipped with Aura RGB technology so it looks synchronized with other ASUS hardware.
Do not ask about performance to this graphics card because ROG STRIX GeForce GTX 1080 Ti OC Edition is very tight. Currently, 3DMark Fire Strike score is even on top of other graphics card list, beating the previous record of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founder Edition.
Just like the performance of benchmark synthesis, ROG STRIX GeForce GTX 1080 Ti OC Edition gaming performance is also very powerful. Having a graphics card is tantamount to getting guarantees the game runs in maximum graphics settings at 1080p resolution with frame rate above 60fps. Even the average framerate of the game testing The Witcher 3, Ghost Recon: Wildlands, and Ashes of The Singularity shows numbers above 70fps.
While playing the game at 4K resolution requires a little adjustment in the graphics settings in order to achieve frame rate 60fps. However, playing games in 4K resolution is also still not a problem for this graphics card thanks to its enormous memory that reaches 11GB.
My conclusion to this graphics card will not be long because ROG STRIX GeForce GTX 1080 Ti OC Edition is already able to show its role as a premium graphics card. I just reminded the size of this graphics card is not small and long enough so you also have to take into account the aspect of space in your PC case.
Finally, you should also be ready to spend extra funds to purchase this graphics card. In Indonesia, the ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce GTX 1080 Ti OC Edition sells for $1100.
