Galax To Unveil First Custom Cooled GTX 1080; Has Budget-friendly Design with No Backplate
Nvidia has officially unveiled its new GTX 1080, which is 2x more powerful than GTX Titan. It`s not been a week since Nvidia unveiled the card, and non-reference versions have now started appearing on the Internet. Pictures of the custom cooled GTX 1080 from Galax have just spotted online, and there might be a chance that this is not the Founders Edition replacement you are looking for.
This custom designed GTX 1080 has been designed to deliver GTX 1080 performance at a low price by using a wallet friendly cooling design. Galax GTX 1080 removes the rear backplate of the reference.
Further, unlike the GTX 1080 Founders Edition, this card uses a cheaper plastic kind of look, but maintains the general cooler design.
Still this custom card looks good enough to put GTX 980 Ti to shame when it comes to cooling with its cooler being able to cool the entire power house of a graphics card, though it is likely that the it will run on high temperatures.
This GPU uses the same reference PCB design of a Founder Edition GTX 1080, so it is highly probable that it should be compatible with future GTX 1080 water block designs.
