This week, PNY announced their new custom GTX 1080 graphics card: the GeForce GTX 1080 XLR8 OC. The new card combines an NVIDIA reference-design PCB with a custom triple fan cooling system and a factory overclock of 1708 MHz core and 1848 MHZ boost.

Sporting a rather clean industrial-style design with a black and red finish, the PNY GeForce GTX 1080 XLR8 OC features a triple 80 mm fan configuration which stay completely off while the GPU is at idle. Those fans cool a pair of aluminum heat sinks which utilize 8-mm thick nickel-plated copper heat pipes. The card draws power from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector and display output options remain the same as the Founder’s Edition with 3x DisplayPort 1.4, 1x HDMI 2.0b and 1x dual-link DVI. Also untouched is the memory clock which remains at 10 GHz.
All and all, the PNY GTX 1080 XLR8 OC seems to be a decent option for those in the market for a high-end graphics card. It is available now and priced at $659.99.
