    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!

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • Juan Sambucetti

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

  • Aurious

    man, from 780 to 946 a year later wtf

  • 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.

  • Adrian Nostromo

  • 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

  • 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))

  • arcade 111

    I chose my parts from the rgb

  • Blazer 6905

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

  • Vorago

    ohhh the days when $60 was a significant price change on a 1080 ti...

  • cronic ,

    my strix 1080 will over clock and sit on 2090 mhz

  • Plamen Apostolov

    Rule N1 for me: Never buy ASUS.

  • FlightSimMovie

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

  • GrayWolfShaman

    Are they both 2 slot cards?

  • Blu Stallion

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

  • 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?

  • Teh509

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

  • 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.

  • funbucket09

    Strix is way better. Auros takes up too much room

  • 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.

  • Rabbit Channel

    I'm controlling all RGB Lights with AURA software with this setup: Case: Bitfenix Enso Motherboard: ROG Strix Z370-E Gaming CPU: Intel Core I7-8700K 3.70GHz CPU Cooler: Cooler Master MasterAir ma610p RAM: T-FORCE Gaming DELTA RGB DDR4 2x16GB SSD: Samsung 960 EVO 500GB HDD: SEAGATE Barracuda 2TB GPU: Asus Strix GTX 1080ti Power Supply: EVGA SuperNova G3 650W Keyboard: Asus Strix Flare Mouse: Asus Strix Impact Headset: Asus Strix Wireless


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

  • 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

  • Paulo Nilo Gaid

    wheres the gaming x trio ?


    A or S why this video doesn't matter!

  • LordVerdo

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

  • Aries Nyuratik

    Video was very helpful. Thanks, Paul. <3

  • Fatal

    I want a 1080 ti but all aibs look so cool


    For me the AORUS won the fight, maybe your a ASUS Fanboy....

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • dean43v3r dean


  • Neelakash Bordoloi

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

  • Devansh

    Just buy nvidia’s 1080 ti

  • Clorox Bleach

    So i am Lucky? My 1070 is able to clock at 2.1GHz

  • 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.

  • 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..

  • Rhaast Cc

    I have the Asus ROG STRIX GTX 1080 and i love it

  • 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.

  • m Cave

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

  • Shadow Fc

    Asus is always the best 👍

  • Kory Kinnett

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

  • Victor VVG

    If your gamer...choose the cheapest 1080 ti

  • 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.

  • Vova Syhin

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

  • Mitchell Gardner

    Great video.. Thank you sir...

  • Puss in Boots

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

  • Cazan Delureanu Sorin Manuel


  • Fractal Vlad

    the GTX 970 had 3.5 and 4gb of memory lmao

  • 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....

  • ッDragooseem

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

  • James Robertson

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