Corsair releases the Hydro GFX GTX 1080 video card
Corsair has officially announced its second Hydro GFX Series video card – the Corsair Hydro GFX GTX 1080. The new video card obviously comes with a GeForce GTX 1080 GPU inside but features factory-increased clock speeds as well as liquid cooling.
The new video card arrives with an integrated Corsair Hydro Series H55 cooler that draws heat from the GPU via a micro-fin copper base cold plate and dissipates it efficiently by using a 120 mm high-surface area radiator. A 120 mm pre-installed low-noise LED-lit cooling fan ensures low temps and high performance. Speaking of this the Corsair Hydro GFX GTX 1080 offers three different custom pre-overclocked profiles for users to choose from. The so-called Silent Mode has the GPU running at 1607 MHz in nominal mode and at 1733 MHz in Turbo mode; the Gaming Mode runs the GPU at 1683 MHz in nominal mode and at 1822 MHz in Turbo mode and finally the OC Mode makes the GPU operate at 1708 MHz in nominal mode and at 1847 MHz in Turbo mode. The 8 GB of GDDR5X memory runs at 10 010 MHz in Silent and Gaming modes and at 10 108 MHz in OC Mode. At the back the card offers three DisplayPort 1.4 connectors as well as HDMI 2.0 and DL-DVI-D ports for excellent connectivity with leading edge VR headsets and multiple high-resolution displays.
The new Corsair video card is available now. It costs USD 749.99 excluding tax in the USA, GBP 699.99 including VAT in the UK and EUR 849.99 including VAT in Germany.
