The GeForce GTX 1070

The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti “Founders Edition” looks exactly like the GTX 1080, being 10.6 inches (268 mm) long and using two slots. It uses a centrifugal fan, which is a good choice because it pushed the hot air outside the case, and allow you to use the contiguous slot to the video card.

Figure 2 shows the video connectors of the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti FE. It brings three DisplayPort 1.4 and one HDMI 2.0b connectors.

Figure 7 shows the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition with its cooler removed. It is a two-part cooler, with a heatsink with a vapor chamber at the base for the GPU and a metal plat that touches the memory chips and the voltage regulator circuit transistors. Notice that there are eleven memory chips.
