In addition to the standard pack, the GTX 1080 XTREME GAMING is also offered in a special Premium Pack that comes with VR friendly kits, an SLI Bridge, and other premium accessories to prepare gamers for what is coming next in the gaming sphere. The air-cooled GTX 1080 XTREME GAMING features the brand new WINDFORCE Stack Cooling. This patent-pending design is able to accommodate three 100mm fans without stretching the card length to provide much larger coverage of the heat sink for extreme cooling. Combining with the counter-rotating center fan, the WINDFORCE cooler delivers up to 10% more airflow than conventional triple-fan coolers, while also reducing turbulence to a minimum. The re-engineered sickle fan blades optimize air intake for an overall improvement in thermals by 4%.
