Look what I found in the latest press release from Gigabyte..
GIGABYTE GTX 1080 XTREME HYBRID
The graphics card in the middle was not released by Gigabyte as of yet. Even the press release says nothing about this card. It does however mention GTX 1080 XTREME GAMING that is shown on the left side.
The new card spotted in this picture is most likely GeForce GTX 1080 XTREME Hybrid, a successor to GX 980 Ti HYBRID, which you can see on the photo below. As you can see it does look quite similar except the window is accompanied by LED illuminated X-logo, similar to XTREME GAMING. I think it’s plausible to expect both cards to share the same PCB.
Hopefully Gigabyte will release more info about this card at Computex.
