AORUS Performance
AORUS graphics cards are crafted for perfection in pursuit of the ultimate graphics experience for gaming enthusiasts. Based on the revolutionary NVIDIA® Pascal™ GPU architecture, AORUS graphics card brings you incredible gaming experience.

• GPU Gauntlet™ Sorting
• Pascal-powered graphics card gives you superior performance and power efficiency.
• Support up to 8K display @60Hz.
• Outstanding performance for Virtual Reality gaming.

AORUS All-Around Cooling Solution
AORUS provides the all-around cooling solution for all key components of the graphics card. We take care not only GPU but also VRAM and MOSFET, to ensure a stable overclock operation and longer life. On the front side, the large copper base plate dissipates the most heat from the GPU and VRAM. On the back side, the copper back plate dissipates the heat from the GPU back side. All other key components are taken care of very well by the WINDFORCE cooling module. AORUS ensures the customer a better cooling solution in many ways.

• 3x 100mm Stack Fans.
• Front Side Cooling Module.
• Back Side Cooling Module.

Large Copper Base Plate
With direct contact to the GPU and VRAM, the large copper base plate combines the composite heat pipes to efficiently transfer heat generated from the interior cores to the heat sink.

Advanced Copper Back Plate Cooling
Excessive heat from GPU not only gets dissipated utilizing the massive cooling module in the front but also through the back side with a big copper plate, providing a well-rounded thermal solution for the GPU. Laboratory test the GPU temperature can be reduced by 3 degrees, when all other conditions are the same.

AORUS WINDFORCE Stack Cooling System
• WINDFORCE Stack 3X Cooling System: All new WINDFORCE Stack cooling with 3X 100mm fans in an innovative stacking structure for enhanced heat dissipation.
• Stack Fan Design: The 3x 100mm stack fans provide larger and more smooth airflow. And with more heatsink coverage than 3x 80mm fans, WINDFORCE stack fans will have 10% better cooling performance.
• Innovative Stack Fan Design: Make 3x 100mm stack fans into less than 300mm length area. To concentrate and enlarge the airflow on the whole heatsink for the most efficient heat dissipation.
• Alternate Spinning Fan Design: The middle fan spins in the reverse direction to optimize the airflow to dissipate the heat more effective for accomplishing higher performance at a lower temperature.
• The Direction of the Copper Plate: With the better system airflow, the direction of the copper plate will help to increase the cooling performance.
• Unique Blade Fan Design: The airflow is spilt by the triangle fan edge, and guided smoothly through the 3D stripe curve on the fan surface, effectively enhancing the airflow by 23% over the traditional fans.
• Double Ball Bearing Structure: The double ball bearing structure has better heat endurance and efficiency than sleeve structure.
• Angular Fin Design: The angular and unequal fins height does not only channel the airflow through the fins and enlarge the contact surface but also results in a lower noise level and better cooling capacity.
• Composite Heat-Pipes: The composite heat-pipes combines both thermal conductivity and phase transition for efficiently managing the transfer of heat between two solid interfaces which increases 29% of cooling capacity.
• 3D Active Fan with RGB LED Indicators: 3D-Active Fan, the industry's first 0dB semi-passive fan design introduced by GIGABYTE. The fans will remain off when the GPU is under a set loading or temperature for low power gaming.

AORUS VR Link

So Easy to VR
With 2 extra HDMI ports, AORUS VR Link innovatively provides the most flexible output connectivity. Connect up to 4 monitors and/or VR devices at the same time with a total of 3 DisplayPort and 3 native HDMI ports that could be used interchangeably under VR Mode for all types of gaming configuration. Outputs are automatically detected upon restarting PC with no further setting required.

Multi Display Configuration Support
AORUS VR Link is the only output technology in the market that supports the following combinations of displays without any adaptors required. (VR Headsets are connected via HDMI)


AORUS Excellence: Premium Build In Every Aspect

Metal Back Plate
Glorious black metal back plate provides the solid protection, strengthens the structure and inspires the passion for gaming.

Aerospace-Grade PCB Coating for Best Protection
• Dust-resistance shields the circuit board from dust, insects, dropped screws, drill shavings, and abrasion.
• Moisture-resistance prevents unwanted conduction paths and board damage.
• Corrosion-resistance protects boards from environmental contaminants, such as salt spray, humidity, and corrosion.

LED Power Indicators to Show If the PCI-E Voltage from PSU Is Stable
Be alert when PCI-E voltage is unstable with the smart power LED indicators. When experiencing any power abnormality, the indicator will alert gamers by flashing light.

Built for Extreme Overclocking with 12+2 Power Phases
Compared to the reference design, the 12+2 power phases on the card make the MOSFET working at a lower temperature and provide more stable voltage output. Over temperature protection and load balance to each MOSFET can effectively extend the card life.

TITAN X-Grade Chokes and Capacitors for Extreme Durability
AORUS Graphics Cards are engineered with the same highest-grade chokes and capacitors as those of Titan X, delivering high quality performance and longer system lifespan.

Friendly PCB Design Thanks to Fully Automated Production Process
Fully automated production process ensures top quality of the circuit boards and eliminates sharp protrusions of the solder connectors seen on the conventional PCB surface. This friendly design prevents your hands from getting cut or inadvertently damaging components when making your build.
