Okay, let’s start with the name. I like short model names because they are easier to remember, but unfortunately, this is the full name:
GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1080 Ti AORUS Waterforce WB Extreme Edition 11G (GV-N108TAORUSX WB-11GD)
This is the second installment of Waterforce in GTX 1080 Ti series and fourth in GeForce 10 series in general. Just yesterday we reported on a Waterforce with AIO cooler, which is apparently coming together with a water-block version.
New card is based on air-cooled Xtreme Edition with 12+2 phase and dual 8-pin power design. It has a custom I/O bracket with two HDMI 2.0b and three 1.4 DisplayPorts. There’s also a third HDMI port on the back (VR-Link).
Same as air-cooled XE, it has copper GPU base on the back and full cover backplate. The waterblock is LED illuminated and you can customize the color to your liking.
The GTX 1080 TI Waterforce WB XE is one of the fastest 1080 Ti’s on the market with 1632 MHz core clock and 1746 MHz boost clock in OC mode (11232 MHz memory clock while OC mode boosts this to 11448 MHz memory). We don’t know anything about the pricing yet, but judging from design, it’s not going to be cheap.
