What customers say about "Key Specs"
ASUS Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080 Strix A8G Graphics Card (GAMING 8 GB GDDR5) - Black
  • Very impressed. Paired with an i7 4770k (oc'ed to 4.1), this breezers through Doom 2016 with all settings on ultra, smooth and fast. It looks stunning.
  • Great card, fast enough to handle anything at 1080p (overkill for it, in fact). Runs very cool at 1080, no louder than my old 960.
  • Courier was fast, and well packed, The Graphic is well built, at the 1st reboot was a terrible noise, but after 3 posts its working fine,
  • Fast card, looks great and it can handle everything I have thrown at it so far.
  • Very fast and quiet. I am very happy with this card.

  • I bought this item and first time it came with faulty ram which only clocked at idle speeds and wouldn't come out of idle received replacement 2 days after and works perfect overall good
  • This card is incredible I probably just got lucky but I managed to OC mine to 2025Mhz stable and it runs incredibly quietly(however loud when you crank up the fan speed)
  • The video card itself performs great, just as you would expect from a GTX 1080.
  • Good GPU. I was a little disappointed on the overclock though. Maybe I was not lucky on the silicon lottery but the clock speed it reached was way lower than any other review I saw online.
  • Great card, has been working awesome for me since I got it. Recently there is some weirdness with the clocking numbers for the memory on OC not matching the specs but I am able to manually adjust to the specs and it seems fine.

What customers say about "Features"
ASUS Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080 Strix A8G Graphics Card (GAMING 8 GB GDDR5) - Black
  • The card is well built, the built in fan is quiet and keeps the card cool. I won't be upgrading anytime soon.
  • At current prices I would look at a dual fan OC card but at RRP this GPU is a worthy buy.
  • This card is also really quite and the fans also stop when its not needed.
  • Excellent low fan noise, only thing i don't get is the Cable adapter 12 pin to to 8 pin, is this overload? As in i have enough 8x4 8 pin adapters
  • Quality GPU with great fan longevity. The bearings in these things seem immortal. Good core and clock speed boosts and respectable OC.

  • I personally went with the Gigabyte Xtreme Gaming due to better numbers and the extra features like PCB coating and Titan X(p) grade chokes and capacitors.
  • I'm driving three 27" 1920x1080p monitors via Nvidia's 3D Surround technology and I still get amazing frame rates in all the games I play.
  • The GeForce 1080 GTX is based on pascal technology which means, in laymen terms, it's ALOT FASTER than anything else on the market at the price point.
  • Custom cards from partners will run much much cooler and will be factory overclocked.
  • Extremely fast and quiet. Upgraded from a gtx 680. Actually runs cooler too. Can't complain here, it's been several months and still runs like a champ.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
ASUS Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080 Strix A8G Graphics Card (GAMING 8 GB GDDR5) - Black
  • This card was chosen for for its two hdmi outlets, which will be connected to 32 inch external monitors, the DVI connector running the main monitor in ultrahd mode.
  • Installation was uneventful (a good thing!) and simple. Simply slot it in screw it in place, connect it to an 8 pin and you're done.
  • Connecting the power cables could be made easier too.
  • Great product but I thought It would come with an 8-pin PCI-E adapter to connect to the power supply
  • Easy to install, only 1 power connection needed. It's a relatively small size so easy to fit although it's snug to my large cooler.

  • A feature i found that is little known is that if you use a DVI to HDMI adapter on the card's DVI port it still supports 8 channel audio at 48Khz.
  • It's connected to a Samsung 65" 4k TV. I play StarCraft 2 and World of Warcraft and FPS at 60hz is well into the 100's with high graphics settings.
  • This way you can connect up a stereo 8 speaker system directly and use the actual HDMI port for the TV. Seems to work the best for me.
  • Obvious problems with the card as confirmed by other reviewers. DVI-D connection will not connect to my monitor. HDMI works fine for connection to tv however I get no signal from the DVI-D.
  • Incredible performance, but unnacceptable connectivity issues.
