The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti
The GeForce GTX 1080 “Founders Edition” is 10.6 inches (268 mm) long and uses 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 FE. It brings three DisplayPort 1.4, one HDMI 2.0b and one DVI-D connectors.

In Figure 3, you see the top of the card, where there is an eight-pin PCI Express power connector. The “GEFORCE GTX” logo lits in green when the card is powered on.

In Figure 6 you see the GeForce GTX 1080 with the backplate removed, unveiling the solder side of the PCB. There are no memory chips on this side.

Figure 7 shows that the GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition uses a two-piece cooler: a heatsink with vapor chamber at the base that cools the GPU chip, and a big metallic plate where is installed the fan.

In Figure 8 you see the GTX 1080 with the cooler removed. This cooler touches the memory chips and the voltage regulator circuit transistors.
Notice that there are eight memory chips.

Figure 10 shows one of the memory chips present on the GeForce GTX 1080. It is a GDDR5X Micron 6HA77 memory chip. Unfortunately, we were not able to find this chip specifications.
