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.)

Works, but coil whine

Pros: - Works great
- Lights look good

Cons: - Coil whine is quite noticeable when you get close to your computer (~8 inches). When wearing headphones + behind a case, it isn't that bad, but still there.

Overall Review: - Lighting is a little extreme for me, great if you like RGB insanity

My card doesn't work with the software

Pros: Cool look

Cons: The rgb software won't detect my card and every time I start my PC I have to go to task manager and wait for the fans on the card to start then end the aorus engine or my PC will crash it's a nice system every time And I can't overclock. That said I would recommend this card if the problem are fixed.

Amazing graphics! Works well

Pros: Amazing graphics, i came from a 1080 and id say the graphics look a good 25% to 50% better on games plus better FPS.
Gorgeous lights, google "RGB Fusion 2.0" to get the software to customize the lighting.
Easy to set up. stick in into the motherboard, and put in the 16 (yes,16 lol) PCI-E cables to power it.

Cons: Expensive
Pretty freaking thicc

Overall Review: NOTE!!!!! You will need to install Aorus Engine to customize/ overclock it. Also you may notice the 3 fans wont spin after you boot your pc back up, this is a factory setting in the Aorus engine software that only turns on the fan when it needs it. If you want it constantly spinning, which will also activate the fan light, change the fan setting off of semi-passive.

Works great! Include the card and RGB.

Pros: Nice design. Cool stuff.
A little bit shorter than other brands.
Has a pretty high default core clock and VRAM clock.

Cons: Heater than other brands and Gigabyte's gaming product line.
More expensive.

Overall Review: ***RGB is working nice but you should have to uninstall the previous version of AORUS ENGINE & RGB FUSION before update***
And I don't auto startup that software after finished setup the RGB.
IDLE: 30'C / GAMING: 72'C / FULLOAD: 77'C
Without custom overclocking.

A horrible hot ride.

Pros: -Lighting is nice when it works.
-Really good looking design.

Cons: -Heat
and more heat.

Also lighting is buggy.
Pretty loud fans. 60 percent or lower is okay..

Overall Review: My experience with this card has been fairly negative.
First off the card is beautiful imo.

But lets get down to brass tax.

I have been crashing and having my computer lose its input signal to the monitor when playing games.
Its reaching temps in the 80's almost instantly. This is with a huge open case. I took my glass side panels off, and added 2 extra fans so some nice cool air was blowing over the backplate/stovetop, but to no avail.

I also tried underclocking? undervolting? 75mhz once again card still gets too hot.

Maybe i got unlucky and have a faulty one or a really bad thermal paste job...?

But this card has been nothing but Glitchy,Hot and a pain in the rear. I happily just plugged my 1070 back in and will return this promptly.

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.

Overall Review: 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.

Update 2/16/2019:

There was a software update and the RGB now works every time that I have tried it thus far. It has been a much better experience.Still annoying that it took this long to figure out how to make lights work, but nonetheless I bumped to 4/5.

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.

UPDATE 13 Feb 2019. Make sure you get the newest bios, It makes the card much better. Bios is dated 12Feb iirc. I still very much like this card.
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.
Software has improved a bit.

Overall Review: 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.

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
Edit- I previously stated that this card ran quite hot even at high fan speeds, it turns out it was an issue on my end. Somehow my bottom intake fan was flipped around to be an exhaust fan making 5 exhaust fans in total. I flipped it back around to intake and now the card never goes above 58C even at 60% fan speed on load, Gigabyte definitely did a solid job with the cooler while keeping aesthetic in mind.

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
-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.

Overall Review: - 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.
