    U can choose based on overclocking capability or a more realistic durability. If u are the latter then first off DON'T get a gigabyte. Gigabyte are still using the same windforce fans from their 900 series. Those fans are poorly built and suffer a lot of wind turbulence they will snap off within one year. Second, even if they give u a good GPU chip the rest of the components on their PCB are of poor quality. My 980ti blew out a power IC in 3 years (if u decided that a GPU that u paid as much as ur entire PC combined is supposed to die in 3 years then u clearly don't care about ur money that much) 3 years might make sense for a GPU that was overclocked but I used mine without overclocking. It should have lasted 5 years. Gigabyte may overclock well but the build quality is trash.

    Is this the Gigabyte Aurous GTX 1080ti XTREME edition?!

  • m Cave

    Thank you for putting your sponsor in the start so I could skip it right away.

  • Joseph Carlos

    So your basically saying an ASUS Strix 1080Ti performs better than the Gigabyte competitor even though it is tiny bit more expensive. In australia these cards cost between 1,100 and 1,300AUD dollars at both my local store and online websites except AMAZON. When I upgrade to a 1080Ti I am definitely choosing the Asus somehow though.

  • Mr Pickle

    You sound like levelcapgaming XD

  • Comp Wiz2007

    The whole GAY RGB thing needs to end..  No need to feel like you're in a 1990's Rave when you hit your power button.

  • Vova Syhin

    Aorus Extreme is overall best and fastest 1080TI, its also cheaper and has longer warranty.

  • Juan Sambucetti

    What? The led lights up when it's not connected? Fuck, technic problems with my pc i guess...

  • Josh Cabana

    Guys help, i installed this Gtx 1080ti on my pc, uninstalled all drivers using DDU and re-installed it again.ALL THE GAMES I'M PLAYING KEEPS CRASHING AFTER 2-5 MINUTES INTO THE GAME.Someone please help,My specs:I7 6700kAourus Gtx 1080ti (same one as this video)Psu: rm 650w

  • jpthsd

    wow newegg listed the right price before all miners jacked up the price,,,GPU 100% or 150% price jackups,Now the memory crisis,,that's not definitely miners but someone gauged, fixed the price,,I hope FTC looks into it and fine the heck out of every penny of those found guilty!

  • Graham Smith

    So as much (bandwidth), (memory), (clock speed) as you can or will afford

  • LordVerdo

    Good lord the Strix sounds like a 747 at 75 percent fan speed!


    Conclusion it's no the size of your junk but how long you can keep it up!

  • Ďřãçűłå KęďąH

    I have sli msi gtx 1080 tiI did try gigabyte but i don't why i didn't like it maybe i am msi guy 😅But with stress work with msi is bestI use overclock on it and the temperature is greatBut with gigabyte it's get so hot and fans get annoying

  • Fatal

    I want a 1080 ti but all aibs look so cool

  • Cazan Delureanu Sorin Manuel


  • Teh509

    The best 1080ti is the cheapest one you can find, non blower style... obviously.

  • EJL2004

    This is what I'm going through right now. Can you create an updated version of this video for the 20xx line of Invidia? I'm confused about which 2070 to get.

  • Victor VVG

    If your gamer...choose the cheapest 1080 ti

  • arcade 111

    I chose my parts from the rgb

  • Blu Stallion

    Gigabyte is really a meh company come pascal... to bad, they used to be so good in maxwell

  • Sergey Yastrebov

    You forgot about size - particularly length - something I learned hard way, as I had to cut hdd holders to fit my new GPU))

  • Aries Nyuratik

    Video was very helpful. Thanks, Paul. <3

  • GrayWolfShaman

    Are they both 2 slot cards?

  • PINky PIE

    well. i'll go with gigabyte. since i had rx470.. rx480 and r9 fury strix. all by asus. and that shi*y fan made by everflow.. all of them are broken after a year

  • Puss in Boots

    thought, there would be a pcb analysis and cooler\radiator review, but this showdown doesn't matter realy.

  • Mike Buck

    I think i chose pretty wisely. EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti FTW3 ELITE GAMING BLACK, 11G-P4-6796-K2, 11GB GDDR5X two of these beauties for sli.

  • Nawras 2

    Gigabyte Aorus 1080ti in my opinion looks better with a slight orange color since it fits my setup. The Strix is overrated. To be fair, both have the same performance and the same temp. Only difference is 1-2 fps and thats about it. They both look good. It's all up to you're taste. Both are powerful high-end graphic cards so keep that in mind.

  • funbucket09

    Strix is way better. Auros takes up too much room

  • Tommy Chappell

    ah i cant decide.. arorus is better at overclocking (has better overlocking software and hardware), whereas Strix has faster fan speed resulting in potentially a super cooled cpu with virtualy 1000rpm faaster than aorus's fans... aesthetically they both look appealing i really couldnt decide on that one... strix is a bit louder but only because it has a faster fan speed which makes sense..

  • WillyWonka

    Oh my god finally thank you, been looking for a good video about these two cards specifically. I’m leaning towards the Asus but I’m seeing that it’s 1000-1100 right now? Is that accurate and will it change by Black Friday or CM? The Aorus is only 740 right now so I’m not entirely sure, depends on prices when those sales come

  • Larry Torres

    Not sure if you can say Asus one it. Price is higher and that is a big thing pricing. Both card are great i have check alot of 1080ti card the MSI and gigabyte Aorus are the top two for me, But awesome video.

  • Mitchell Gardner

    Great video.. Thank you sir...

  • Hairforce •

    the aorus 1080ti is actually the loudest non-blower 1080ti. if noise doesn't bother you, go for it. if noise bothers you even a little bit, don't even think about it.

  • Devansh

    Just buy nvidia’s 1080 ti


    A or S why this video doesn't matter!

  • Aviv Gannon

    Best gpu of same gpu should be the coldest one, and most reliable one. Since it doesn't matter how fast can a card get if it goes hot.

  • dean43v3r dean


  • Blazer 6905

    Evga for the win get it ik its not an option but id choose that

  • cronic ,

    my strix 1080 will over clock and sit on 2090 mhz

  • Normalcheese213

    I have a gtx 1080 aorus getting repaired 1 like = 1 pray that it will get fixed. They told me ( frys ) that i could just buy another, and i respond with “ yeah, its not like im a college student trying to pay for my school classes

  • CrimsonDante Gamer

    3:35-3:52 what he said is why I went with Sapphire on AMD bought two RX 580's 8GB Sapphire Special Edition's. However Pricing was slightly more expensive then the average RX 580 for good reason's :). RGB, LOOKS/ESTETICS, COOLING AND BUILT QUILTY IS REALLY WELL MADE. Its also one of the fastest performing RX 580's you can get :D ,but that is why its more expensive. Its also one of the best looking RX 580's you can get with the ability to be able to light up.

  • DHH

    I'm looking at the EVGA FTW3 1080Ti which is $1000 on Newegg. Compare that to the cards featured here which are around $1600. What makes these cards $600 more than the EVGA?

  • Azizx27

    Only problem is gigabyte software is shit. I have a gigabyte motherboard and gpu but can’t get the rgb to sync, not to mention that the motherboard’s color cycle option skips colors. As to the rest of the motherboard software, you would be lucky if you get it to work.

  • Jack Sparrow

    I am being sarcastic frustrated voice but computers don't need rgb lighting why RGB lighting.

  • Plamen Apostolov

    Rule N1 for me: Never buy ASUS.

  • LiiTe

    Love the Orange. Everyone can't be a standard pussy like you.

  • Kory Kinnett

    Too bad the STRIX didn't have triple DP...

  • ッDragooseem

    And little did we know, later on both of these cards would cost 849.99.... how sad

  • jnmpablo rg

    Gracias por el vídeo... no entiendo Inglés... Una sugerencia sería presentar el frontal de la tarjeta gráfica... lo que se, ve, ahora generalmente iluminado centrándose bien en ese detalle, su frontal a la vista ya instalada en la parte final....

  • Caleer

    I had to RMA my AORUS 1080 ti 4 times before just selling it and replacing it with the ASUS 1080 TI, I am never touch gigabyte again.

  • Adrian Nostromo

    This is the video I was looking for, the 2 monsters head to head. Thanks Paul!

  • FlightSimMovie

    In my country the strix are actually cheaper than the aorus 50 dollar..but it almost 1000 already

  • Shamster1984

    Always wait a few months for the factory OC version, Aorus Ti Extreme. Gigabyte will always be slightly slower as they design for durability, also the ASUS and Gigabyte RnD facility are shared so i am sure they have some sort of agreement regarding final specification

  • Evan Howell

    The reason the clock speed is highly on the strix is because paul failed to mention he has the OC edition of the strix.

  • Adam Strix

    Founders edition +Water Block

  • hazonku

    I've had the Aorus GTX 1080Ti Xtreme for well over a year now & I'm pretty please with it. I REALLY like the all metal construction of that shroud and the accents are just thin enough that they're not too distracting from the rest of my build white & blue themed build inside my Tower 900. It's a decent card & great for actual work too doing entry level video editing & After Effects work.
