Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme GamingIt is that time again where the GPU wars are heating up. Nvidia recently released Pascal upon the world and with the reference cards in the wild, it is time for the board partners to release their cards. Gigabyte makes a few models of the GTX 1080’s and the GTX 1070’s but at the top of the list is the Xtreme Gaming series. The Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 Xtreme Gaming is the top of the 1070 series from Gigabyte. The Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 Xtreme Gaming features a coated PCB to prevent shorts due to dust, dropped screws or the nightmare of water cooling coolant dripping from a leaking CPU block. The GPU also features the new Windforce Stack 3x cooling system, which features three 100mm fans.
