AORUS provides an all-around cooling solution for all the key components in the graphics card. We've made sure to not just cover the GPU but also VRAM and MOSFET, to ensure stable overclock operations and an overall longer life. AORUS guarantees that this WATERFORCE-powered graphics card comes excellent assembly-quality and the highest performance.



The WATERFORCE all-in-one cooling system is a pre-assembled and pre-filled liquid solution that provides easy installation. The optimized pump and water block deliver the most efficient water flow and cooling performance at a lower noise level.



The built-in 240mm black aluminum radiator helps dissipate heat more efficiently. This also makes the graphics card more stable during overclocking.



The double-ball-bearing structure has better heat endurance and efficiency than a classic sleeve structure.


Large copper base plate

Without any need for an extra fan on the card, WATERFORCE provides the best cooling solution for the GPU/RAM/MOSFET. The copper plate and copper heat-pipe efficiently dissipate heat to produce a real silent environment.


Braided FEP Tubes

With nearly no moisture absorption, high thermal stability and high pressure tolerance, the sturdy FEP tubes greatly enhance product life and durability.

AORUS provides a total of 7 video outputs compared to the reference card's 5 video outputs. An additional 2 HDMI ports allow consumers to have greater flexibility when connecting to the display. You can choose 3x HDMI + 1x DisplayPort (DP) + 1x USB-C or 3x DP + 1x HDMI + 1x USB-C for your monitors without any adapters.


Wings of Excellence

The falcon utilizes its powerful wings to soar through the skies and lock down its prey. The AORUS Core takes inspiration from the falcon’s aerodynamic wings, incorporating a multi-layered design which features wing-shaped contours and also resembles the falcon’s high velocity while diving through the skies. With a sleek and metallic armor, the AORUS Core symbolizes advancement in technology with its futuristic style.



AORUS graphics are dedicated to perfect quality. Excellent circuit design made with top-grade materials, not only maximizes the performance of the GPU, but also maintains stable and long-life operation.



The glorious black metal backplate provides solid protection, strengthens the card's structure and inspires a true passion for gaming.



Dust-resistant materials shield the circuit board from dust, insects, dropped screws, drill shavings and abrasion. Moisture-resistant material prevents unwanted conduction paths and board damage. Corrosion-resistant components protect the boards from environmental contaminants, such as salt spray, humidity and corrosion.



Stay alerted when PCI-E voltage is unstable with the smart power LED indicators. When experiencing any power abnormality, the indicator will alert gamers by flashing light.

Light on: power cable disconnected
Light off: stable power supply
Blinking: abnormal power supply



The graphics card uses the 12+2 power phase design to allow the MOSFET to operate at a lower temperature. The over-temperature-protection design and load balancing for each MOSFET plus the Ultra Durable-certified chokes and capacitors provide excellent performance and longer system life. (Reference card is 8+2 power phase)



A fully-automated production process ensures top quality construction of circuit boards while eliminating sharp protrusions of the solder connectors seen on the conventional PCB surface. This friendly design prevents your hands from getting cut or inadvertently damaging components when making your build.

NVIDIA NVLink™ Support

Supports NVIDIA NVLink™ (NVIDIA SLI) technology, which combines 2 identical GPUs with a GeForce RTX NVLink Bridge to deliver the ultimate experience in 4K or VR gaming. You can also adjust the light effect on the bridge with the AORUS Engine.

Nice card

Pros: Beautiful card. 3 HDMI ports.

Cons: It's HUGE. Can't change colors of gigabyte software. GPU temp not on main screen in software.
Fan control needs to be set on custom as auto lets it run pretty hot.
So far not impressed. I run 2 monitors and the second one flickers if I have anything running full screen on the main, and vice versa. If I am playing a game full screen on the main and watching a movie on the second, the movie has constant glitches and like .5 second rewinds. Not seeing any improvement over my 970 that I replaced. Am running the latest drivers from nvidia and all windows updates. Not sure why there isnt an option for a full refund otherwise I would send this back and maybe go back with an EVGA one. I also expected some improvement on rendering and haven't seen any.

Other Thoughts: Awesome fast shipping from Newegg.
Highest core clock card on market atm.
Upgraded from an evga gtx 970 and honestly I can't see much difference gaming.
This card is HUGE. Make sure you have room in your case. Fortunately my hard drive caddys are removable, otherwise it wouldn't have fit. It's a good 1.5 inches longer than my 970

Wanted to update on this. Card has been working great since my initial review. For those running dual monitors refresh rate on monitors can NOT be the same. This was what was causing most of my issues. Windows kept reverting them back to 60 on both for some reason. Once I got that to stay everything has been awesome. There are newer drivers out, but I have not updated to them. Card is working fine and don't want to chance causing issues. Changing my rating up to 5 eggs.

+1 Hardware -1 Software

Pros: I got an 87% on userbenchmark for 2080s right off the bat which was reassuring. The clock is legit and the card looks dope. Performance for me has not been a question, although my monitors are a bottle neck so I can't truly push the card yet.

Cons: Win10-64bit Drivers. I didn't realize it was a thing, but after searching around I've gathered the sentiment that Gigabyte makes great hardware and terrible software. That seems to have rung true in my rig.
I have 2 HDMI monitors but I can only use one. It took me a day to get multi monitor support, but after rebooting it once again failed. I'm pretty sure I will have to reinstall drivers every reboot to get it to work unless I can figure out whats wrong.
I got this card specifically because I wanted to support my current HDMI monitors, and move to nicer display ports in the future. I'm not confident that those will work either but who knows.
I contacted support a few days ago but never heard back.

EDIT: Coming back to update my review. After a while my driver situation stabilized. Not sure if it was a windows thing or what, but I haven't have had multi monitor problems in some time. The card is dope and has been performing above expectations.

Other Thoughts: If you're in Win10, and you have a single monitor, sure this product is awesome. If you're wanting a long term migration plan from HDMI to DisplayPort like me, this card might be deceiving. If you don't mind driver hacking every reboot, scripting, etc, then it is probably still worth it. Don't expect PnP with this card.

I can't comment on linux drivers, although I may give that a go and try to update.

EDIT: Drivers for windows seemed to stabilize. The trick was to just keep going to device manager, nvidia geforce experience, and updating both ones consistently. Eventually it just worked. Never tried linux though. Maybe I'll update in the future.

Works fine

Pros: Works fine so far

Cons: Like others have said, the RGB software is horrid. Also for whatever reason, my RGB's literlly shut off every hour on the dot for about 3-5 seconds, then turn back on. Not even joking, literally every hour, I've timed it. Dont see any kind of setting in the RGB software or anything else that would point to why this is happening. Other then that, it does what its supposed to.

Runs really cool Highly Reccomended

Pros: Super Fast. Stays super cool. Never goes above 60 degrees Celsius. It is factory overclocked and you can overclock even further with the Auros App. Water cooling GPU for only 99 dollars more... in my mind it is well worth it. I like how the fans and the radiator are separate. Easy to install. The 2080's are huge and weight a lot especially if you have a traditional card were the fans and radiator are on the card. The card doesn't sag. Highly Recommended. Can't notice the Ray Tracing and other added benefits NVidia claims... But the Card is super fast and rips high FPS in every game. Even at 2k resolution and all ultra setting.

Cons: The only small thing I can pick on is the LED Fan Lights. They are not as bright as you may think. Have some Corsair 120MM RGB fans that are much brighter. Very small complaint... Functionality of it I can't be happier.

Other Thoughts: Would Recommend to anyone.

Not the best product out there

Pros: - Great Graphics (when working)
-GPU Cooling works well

Cons: -Hasn't worked properly since Day 1, randomly powers down and back on mid game, screen goes black and FPS drops
-Very Large

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't recommend this product, I should have gone with a GTX 1080 as they have less problems. I found out after purchase that a good majority of RTX 2080's come faulty due to the design and recently a customer actually had one burst into flames. I wish this product had an option for full refund so I could purchase a different card. :(

Overall its a decent card but, has some flaws for a $900 GPU.

Pros: -Maintains an overclock of 2010mghz to 2025mghz.
-The RGB looks ok, the fans aren't very bright though
-3 HDMI ports
-A lot cheaper than a custom water cooling loop.

Cons: -REALLY ANNOYING coil whine under load, I can even hear it coming from my headphones.
-RGB Fusion is no good.
-It's long and I had a difficult time fitting it inside the meshify c because of my CPUs 240mm rad so I had to bend the mounting holes in the front of the case so the GPU would actually fit.
-It doesn't stay that cool considering that it has a 240mm AIO, average temps at 2010mghz under full load after an hour is 60c-64c with an ambient room temp of 25c, inside the meshify c with the rad mounted in the front.
-The overall feel of the card and AIO is kinda of cheap considering it costs $900.

Other Thoughts: -I wish they would use a better quality AIO.
-Shorten the card a bit, 20mm maybe?
-Improve RGB fusion.
-Brighter LEDs

Amazing and cool with no coil whine

Pros: Card is quiet and fast. I have been using the stock settings and performance is phenomenal for a RTX2080. I have not needed to overclock just yet. The software has room for it and with the AIO I'm sure it can handle it. The card has reasonable heat from the radiator under load (I have it mounted on top of case) and the fans are not loud or unbearable at full load. My temps seem to hover around 38-45 max underload. There is def room to manually set them to run a higher rpm if that is what you would like. I have thrown 4k ultra settings on some games and it breezes with no issues. Clean max framerates and no issues with hours of gameplay under load and online multiplayer. Games used so far for a comparison have been Destiny 2, Battlefield V, Rainbow Six Siege, Anthem Demo and CS Go. Extemely impressed with this product. The RGB is a nice touch and the software to control it hasn't given me any issues. Easy plug and play.

Cons: My kinda sorta con would be it's size but it is not necessarily a negative thing. Just know your demisions in your case if you plan to install. I have this in a DIYPC Vanguard V8 case (huge midtower case) and even that had some minor creative plans for installation (I had another 240mm Radiator installed). Other than that, I can't seem to think of anything else atm. If something does come up I will update this review.

Other Thoughts: The card has the option to change fans, they have connectors for them both zip tied as neat as they could to the coolant lines. So should they fail or you have a different preference, you can remedy that issue. The fans that are installed are great though. The 4 year warranty is great outlook should an issue arise and hopefuly I wont have to ever use it, once again, if that day comes I will be sure to update this as well. The card has some weight to it so I recommend something to alleviate your PCIe connector from the weight if you install it horizontally. The games that are supposedly free, aren't necessarily free btw. I wish there was more clarification on the Games Keys that are offered. It is a type of discount that does show on an invoice that is covered with cost for those game keys. A nother note: I upgraded from Vega 64 with this. The 64 had so many issues with heat, coil whine and loud af blower motor. This thing is quiet under load and looks amazing. I didn't have to go through software and figure out all of the different voltage and curve settings to get my card to somewhat work. I installed it along with drivers and software and boom. Up and running in no time. If you go this route, you will not be dissapointed. You might be very impressed as I was. It is absolutely a great product, way to go Gigabyte Aorus with this one. Highly recommended if an easy setup watercooled RTX2080 is what you would like.
