Aorus Xtreme WaterForce

The newest model from Gigabyte codenamed RTX 2080 Aorus Xtreme WaterForce (GV-N2080AORUSX W-8GC) is a hybrid solution for those seeking the best performance without custom liquid cooling.

I said the best performance because this card is factory-overclocked to 1890 MHz (very few custom cards offer such clock speeds). This is, in fact, the same clock as WaterForce WB (with a waterblock) and Aorus Xtreme (with triple-fan air cooler). The memory is also overclocked to 14140 MHz (so only by 140 MHz).

In order to achieve such clock Gigabyte had to equip this card with 240mm radiator and dual fans (and yes, they are RGB fans).

The card features the same board design as the Aorus Xtreme and Aorus Xtreme Waterforce WB. This means dual 8-pin power connectors and seven display connectors (3x DP, 3x HDMI, and USB TypeC). The card features a 12+2 phase design.

The front of the card features a translucent wing, which is illuminated by RGB lights.
