A revamped card by a top name in the industry that runs cool. With its 8GB capacity. It handles current games and puts you in the action with amazing graphics.

Very quiet. Fans turn off in idle. Beats the Radeon RX Vega 56
- Tech Spot
The card boasts the recognizable Gigabyte design with orange stripes on the front and with three striped Windforce fans that, combined with the card’s massive heatsink, enable excellent heat dissipation.

The shroud itself is all black in color, but those translucent linings the flank both sides of the fans are illuminated when powered on. These lights are obviously customizable via software since it’s Aura Sync compatible.

ASUS is using a large triple-slot cooler on their card, which we've seen on other Strix models from the company before. It provides massive cooling potential and keeps the card at excellent temperatures that are not even close to throttling. In terms of fan noise, the card is also extremely quiet, matching the MSI GTX 1070 Ti Gaming. This makes the ASUS thermal solution the best we've seen so far, it having the best temperatures and best fan noise at the same time, but ASUS is using three slots instead of the two the MSI Gaming can do with. Like most other custom designs, ASUS included the crucial idle-fan-off feature, which turns off the fans completely during idle, Internet browsing, and light gaming. Excellent!

Setting it up can be confusing. Takes up a lot of space. Pricey.

High price. No factory-overclocked models allowed by NVIDIA. Older GDDR5 memory
- Tech Spot
The only problem with this card is one that inevitably comes with every triple-fan model, and that’s the size. It is quite a large card and will only fit ATX or eATX cases, so if your case is smaller, it would be best to ensure that it can house this giant beforehand.
