The Evolution of ROG
Now in its 10th year, the Republic of Gamers (ROG) celebrates the ever-evolving collaboration between world-class R&D, insatiable enthusiasts and devoted gamers needed to embrace (and tame) the bleeding edge and is ready to keep outrunning technology for ten more.
Where Style Meets Performance
Featuring Aura RGB Lighting on both the shroud and backplate, ROG Strix graphics cards are capable of displaying millions of colors and up to six different effects for the perfect light show.
Allowing for targeted supplemental cooling, ASUS FanConnect provides dual 4-pin PWM GPU-controlled headers.
Game Cool. Play Silent.
Exclusive DirectCU III cooling technology features a trio of 0dB fans and direct-GPU contact heat-pipes that transport more heat away from the GPU and outperforms reference designs, achieving up to 30% cooler and 3X quieter operation.
ASUS engineers have integrated premium components into their graphics card designs to reinforce overall reliability. Super Alloy Power II components greatly enhance efficiency, reduce power loss, provide 2X reduced component buzzing while under full load, and achieve thermal levels that are approximately 50% cooler than previous designs.
Game Your Way
Redesigned with an intuitive, all-new UI, GPU Tweak II makes overclocking easier and more visual than ever, while still retaining advanced options for seasoned overclockers. With one click, the new Gaming Booster function maximizes system performance by removing redundant processes and allocating all available resources automatically. XSplit Gamecaster lets you easily stream or record your gameplay right from a convenient, in-game overlay.
ASUS Auto Extreme Technology
The ASUS exclusive Auto Extreme component assembly process removes the variables of a human production line and replaces it with the precision of a fully automated assembly system. The resulting graphics cards are more reliable than hand built alternatives.
- Increases component reliability, as well as longevity from the get-go of manufacturing.
- No harsh chemicals and 50% less power usage.
Powered by NVIDIA Pascal, ROG Strix GTX 1080 brings performance and customization to another level with 1936 MHz Boost enabled by Super Alloy Power II and Aura RGB Lighting on the shroud & backplate. DirectCU III cools efficiently and quietly, while new ASUS FanConnect provides dual 4-pin GPU-controlled PWM fan headers.

I have attached pictures of my userbenchmark test of this card, and also gta v benchmark were you can see it was constant at 60fps the whole time. My settings are on very high I just left it as default I think the graphics are good enough don’t need to play with them..
Fills up space in your computer (it’s a big card)
Stays very cool (I have a corsair 760t case)
Overprices right now because idiots are trying to make money
Gets kind of loud sometimes but just pump up your volume and you are good!
This particular card has some very nice bells and whistles. Keep in mind the fans don't spin at all while the GPU is idle, so it does run a bit hotter than EVGA's cards, but not to where it would cause issues. Actually it's able to stay around 40-45C while doing this, and it'll significantly cut back on dust build-up as well. There are 2 PWM fan headers on the side of the card. I have my front intake fans hooked up to those so they don't spin either until the GPU is under load, overall making my PC near-silent at idle (except for my HDD). You can use GPU Tweak II to manually set fan speed curves, but the automatic ones cool the card just fine, and GPU Tweak II is a poorly-programmed mess of bugs so I don't recommend it.
The Aura RGB lighting looks great, but for two problems. One, there are two bright white LED's on the power connectors (6pin and 8pin) that are always white. Really detracts from the look. Second, the Aura software itself, like GPUTweak is riddled with bugs. It actually caused a BSOD on login when I first installed it, and I had to do a system restore. Then, it took me a couple tries to actually get it to stay on the right color (My motherboard is Aura RGB too, so they're synced up.)
My advice: Tape over the white LED's with electrical tape (it holds up to the heat), set your LED's to the color you want and don't mess with the software again unless you have to.
One more quick note: The MSRP of this model is $650. Don't pay more than that for it. Let the scalpers die out.
Both cards work without issue using the Asus software auto OC settings. Aalthough I personally prefer MSI Afterburner, this again is part of the advertised function, and it works as it should making setup faster and easier. While faster than my 2 EVGA GTX 980 ACX 2.0 cards, they're not as fast as NVidia would like you to believe..

Lastly, default fans settings these days are set to run quietly and eventually let the card run pretty hot. With the OC profile enabled which gives me a max 2080MHz clock, during benchmarking tests (in particular I had Unigine Valley running for about 30 minutes) my temps reached 68*C despite an aggressive custom fan profile set to run the fans at 75% (50%@50*C / 100%@70*C) once temps reach 65*C.The side of my case is also mesh (Rosewill Blackhawk Ultra full tower), so these cards have little to no restrictions on venting hot air. That being said, most people to appear to be suggesting a custom fan profile anyway. It's easy to do, so do it!
