GIGABYTE GTX 1080 TI GAMING OC BLACK MINING PERFORMANCE REVIEW

Posted by 1stMining Rig on 2018 Jul 17th

Here’s the thing. I’ve been browsing lately and I’ve realized that the Gigabyte GTX 1080 Ti is still about 30% cheaper than the MSI GTX 1080 Ti I’ve reviewed some days ago. This drew my attention because price is often tailored by the demand. I still see people buying MSI cards for their rigs, which is why I’ve decided to test both cards and see the difference with my own eyes. You can find the MSI GTX 1080 Ti review  and now it’s time to find out more about the Gigabyte GTX 1080 Ti Gaming OC.

For this test, I’ve assembled a rig of three Gigabyte GTX 1080 Ti GPUs. Let’s take a look at the results.

GIGABYTE GTX 1080 TI GAMING OC SPECS

After a quick glance at the specs, we can notice that the Gigabyte has got slightly lower core OC clocks than the MSI one. We are talking about 1-2% difference. How will this affect hashrate? We will see in a minute.

The Gigabyte GTX 1080 Ti uses three fans, while the MSI version only has two. The only downside to that is that the Gigabyte one does not use dual ball bearings. This renders the fans somehow noisier, especially after some months of mining.
