Aorus GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Edition 8G Review

Another review of the Aorus GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Edition 8G video card has popped up on the internet today. This time around it is the Tech Report gang doing the reviewing.

Readers feeling déjà vu on first sight of the XE 8G (as we'll call it from here on out) are justified, since most of the underpinnings of this card come from the already-superb Gigabyte GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming we reviewed last year. The card's cooler and the fans that move air through it are unchanged from the Xtreme Gaming card. That's a good thing, since Gigabyte's trio of 100-mm overlapping fans is both quiet and effective. Like any respectable modern graphics card, the XE 8G stops its fans at idle for silent running.
