Core Clock



Ray tracing is the definitive solution for lifelike lighting, reflections, and shadows, offering a level of realism far beyond what's possible using traditional rendering techniques. NVIDIA Turing™ is the first GPU capable of real-time ray tracing.



This revolutionary architecture, combined with our all-new GeForce® RTX platform, fuses together real-time ray tracing, artificial intelligence, and programmable shading. You've never created and enjoyed games like this before.



GeForce® RTX gaming GPUs come loaded with next-generation GDDR6 memory, support for DirectX 12 features, and more. This is graphics reinvented.

AORUS provides the all-around cooling solution for all key components of the graphics card. We take care not only GPU but also VRAM and MOSFET, to ensure a stable overclock operation and longer life. WINDFORCE STACK 3x 100mm cooling system is the most innovative cooling solution that provides the most efficient thermal performance for the graphics card.



The GIGABYTE patent "Alternate Spinning" is the only solution that can solve the turbulent airflow of three fans. The biggest problem with the three fans is turbulence. Since the fans rotate in the same direction, the airflow direction is opposite between the fans, which will cause turbulent airflow and reduce heat dissipation efficiency. GIGABYTE turns the middle fan in the opposite direction, so that the airflow direction between the two fans is the same, reducing the turbulence and enhancing the airflow pressure.



The 3D Active Fan provides semi-passive cooling, and the fans will remain off when the GPU is in a low load or low power game. It allows gamers to enjoy gameplay in complete silence when the system is running light or idle. The LED fan indicator on the top of the graphics card provides an instant display of the fan status.



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



The angular and unequal fins height does not only channel the airflow through the fins and enlarge the contact surface but also results in a lower noise level and better cooling capacity.



The shape of the pure copper heat pipe maximizes the direct contact area with the GPU, enhancing heat transfer. The heat pipe also covers the VRAM through a large metal plate contact to ensure proper cooling.



The composite heat-pipes combines thermal conductivity and phase transition to efficiently manage the heat transfer between two solid interfaces which increases cooling capacity.


RGB Light Reinvented

The reinvented RGB lighting technology breaks through the traditional lighting restrictions. It can create a variety of incredible lighting effects to satisfy the visual enjoyment of each player.



AORUS provides a total of 7 video outputs compared to the reference card 5 video outputs. An additional 2 HDMI ports allow consumers to have greater flexibility when connecting to the display. You can choose 3xHDMI + 1xDP + 1xUSB-C or 3xDP + 1xHDMI + 1xUSB-C for your monitors without any adaptors.


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 ascension and dive through the skies. With 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 with the top-grade materials, not only maximizes the performance of the GPU, but also maintains stable and long-life operation.



Glorious black metal back plate provides the solid protection, strengthens the structure and inspires the passion for gaming.



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



Be alert 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 lower temperature, and over-temperature protection design and load balancing for each MOSFET, plus the Ultra Durable certified chokes and capacitors, to provide excellent performance and longer system life. (Reference card is 8+2 power phase)



Fully automated production process ensures top quality of the circuit boards and eliminates 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

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


For deep learning

GeForce® RTX 2080 with 8G memory and 448 GB/s memory bandwidth has 2944 CUDA® Cores and hundreds of Tensor cores operating in parallel. It is the most suitable entry point for those who are developing A.I. technology. It doesn't only offer great cost-benefits, it can also save you time due to increased throughput and efficiency.


Intuitive AORUS Engine

Clock speeds, voltage, fan performance, power target can be monitored and tuned in real-time according to your own preference through this intuitive interface. (*The interface and functionality of the software is subject to each model.)



We want you to experience the best service you have ever had.

Awesome card

Pros: -Has a beautiful and smooth, although bulky, design
-I'd say the RGB lighting surpasses any other 2080 there is
-Runs everything on max settings 2k res at 70+ fps
-came with a much needed VGA holder, seriously this thing is absurdly heavy and would no doubt destroy my PCIe slot without it, the VGA holder is pretty simple and low profile but does the job very well
-Boosts to 2020 consistently without even having to overclock it, I definitely got pretty lucky with the silicone lottery, much better than my previous 1080 Ti that broke, it only boosted to around 1890 and I could not overclock that card at all

Cons: -It's very heavy, for a card this heavy I would've liked it to be 3 slots like EVGA does with their 2080's however it's not that big of a deal because of the included VGA holder
-The temps leave something to be desired, although they could be worse, generally hovers around 77C at 80% fan speed unless I have my window open and the cold night air blow on my tower
-You need to install the abominable Aorus graphics engine to set the LED settings. You'd think a major brand like Gigabyte could make something like EVGA did with the top tier Precision Xoc/X1 software but no, AGE is some of the worst GPU/CPU software I've ever dealt with. Most of the time it doesn't even work. I only used it to set the LED but it interferes with my MSI Afterburner fan curve even when it's not running occasionally, although it doesn't happen enough for it to be a real issue.

Other Thoughts: - I would definitely recommend this card if you love RGB and want a good choice. Although the software is an issue, you just need to set the LED's once and then you never have to use it again. However, with how heavy this card is, even with reinforced PCIe slots like the newer Mobos have, you NEED to use the VGA holder or some other kind of card brace if you want to avoid the sag, and believe me, it sags BAD.

People wanting to SLI or NVLink with these cards may run into issues with the VGA holders depending on your case since the bottom is heavily magnetized and the foot takes up more room than any other non PCI lane holder I've seen. All in all I would say it's a very good choice if you're stuck on a decision but obviously no matter what 2080 you end up going with, whether or not you get a good card is going to come down to how lucky you are with the silicone lottery.

I give Gigabyte RTX 5 stars but Newegg 2 stars for misleading free game.

Pros: Awesome RTX, runs everything smooth as silk, (not free game)-Battlefield V is awesome as'well but you pay for it.

Cons: Misleading free game, they charged my account anyways and will not fix it.

Best Design! Cool Temps!

Pros: 28 C Idle and max 70C full load! Good temps @ 60% fans . Worth the buy if you are considering to play 1440p+ reso.

When you mount this vertically this card is one hell a beauty!.

Cons: thicc

Card works great, but the RGB software is a nightmare

Pros: -the AORUS engine software works decently well and is easy to use. Over clocking is quick and easy although there really isn’t much need as I’ve seen it boost to 2100 on its own before when the card is really stressed
-the card is a sturdy solid design, very visually appealing overall
-operating temp when playing in 4K is around 70-78, kinda high, but not the worst I’ve ever seen.
-fans are quiet.
-extra year warranty is nice

Cons: -the RGB functionality is absolute dog****. It worked fine at first but after the first software update (released from Gigabyte themselves), the RGB function has not worked on my card whatsoever. It remains one color.... that’s it. It cannot be changed. I’ve essentially given up on this.
-Gigabyte support is also dog****. I have tried to contact them but you will remain on hold for at least one hour before you reach someone and they are useless and are not helpful whatsoever. So I’ve also given up wasting my time calling them also. Just accept that if you get this card, if you need help, you will not get it From Gigabyte.

Other Thoughts: The card works well but when you shell out the additional money hoping that the RGB lighting function will work well and it doesn’t… It’s very disappointing. You’ll be better off buying a card without the promised incredible lighting functions and end up saving money.

Also, the technical support that I have received from his card so far has been absolutely horrible. Whenever I have called I have either been placed on hold indefinitely and never reach anyone, or when I did actually reach someone they were not helpful whatsoever. Gigabyte you need to fix your RGB function and update your software. Because what you have now is absolutely pathetic and unacceptable.

Best looking GPU by far

Pros: one of the highest OC models out of the box so you know youll be getting a little more performance instead of hoping you get a lottery

Cons: kinda hot when playing in 4K, gets around 75c which isnt super hot but definitely hot for a 3 fan card design. Wouldve given 5 eggs if it were cooler. Its also pretty loud when fans are at 100 % fan speed, when their at 60-70 % its pretty quiet

Other Thoughts: if you're looking for a gorgeous high end rtx 2080 look no further, most cards will be slower than this unless you compare it to other high end cards and at that point they are all pretty much the same, this card looks the best IMO tho, definitely going to invest in a Vertical GPU mount in the future.

So far, so very good, with a 30+ day update

Pros: Worked immediately. Software also worked on second try. But just like that, it was working fine and has stayed working.
I was worried about reported high operating temps. I will continue to watch but right now it is 42-43C w/ fans on auto running at 33, which is inaudible to me. The rgb on the fan blades works, has nice effects but gets choppy/strobe-like if rpm is too low. 33% is fine for my eyes, ymmv.
19% TDP at low loads, hasn't gone above 60% yet. Crossing my fingers. Great looking card.
Update 1: Fingers now uncrossed, great card.

Cons: The software (AORUS Engine) is primitive, but works. I would like to see some improvement. Any hints about functions would be nice. The separate rgbFusion app controls the RTX 2080 rgb functions and controls my Trident Z dram rgb as well. +1 for that. Too bad it isn't in one package. I will watch for updates.
Update 1: Software still sucks but it works.

Other Thoughts: I have this in a C700M case, and use the remote mount the case supplied, tilted back at around 45 degrees, so inches from the glass case face and maybe 5-6 inches from anything else in back of it. 3 inches from the cpu fan. The card is clearly visible, and is in its own thermal environment. It doesn't seem to affect the motherboards temps (X470 Taichi). I had my doubts about this mount at first, but am sold now. Will easily accommodate water cooling if it becomes available, lots of room.
Based on my experiences so far I can recommend this card. Oh, and a four year warranty, which I think is brave of them.
Update 1: i was benchmarking it, and it did well. I turned the fans up to 100%, and left them there since.
At full gpu load in benchmarking, temps did not exceed 68C, which I consider very good.
