The enthusiast community has been waiting for one card since the announcement of Pascal, and that card is the new GTX 1080 Ti. This was in hopes for a repeat of the performance gap between the Titan X and the previous Ti card. With the latest performance numbers, the GTX 1080 Ti proves it was a card worth waiting for.

In this review, we’ll be looking at the XTREME Edition and seeing how it compares to the AORUS GTX 1080 Ti Standard Edition. So, let’s get into the review.
