GIGABYTE Releases AORUS GTX 1080 Gaming Box

Ultimate desktop graphics performance unleashed on Ultrabook


Taipei, Taiwan, September 27, 2017 GIGABYTE, the world’s leading premium gaming hardware manufacturer, today announced the release of AORUS GTX 1080 Gaming Box, the innovative, plug-and-play external graphics solution that turns any Thunderbolt™ 3-enabled Ultrabook laptop to a VR-ready gaming machine. Following the successful introduction of its predecessor, the GTX 1070 Gaming Box, the newly-released GTX 1080 Gaming Box ups the ante in terms of graphics performance by tapping into the enthusiast-grade GeForce® GTX 1080 graphics card. When paired with Ultrabook laptops, users are able to enjoy an upgraded gaming experience without having to sacrifice the laptop’s portability.


The AORUS GTX 1080 Gaming Box is a graphics powerhouse with a GTX 1080 graphics card and a 450W PSU installed inside, requiring no extra hassle or cost to put together an accommodating graphics card separately. The GPU is cooled by a large 130mm fan, ensuring superior thermal performance and quiet operation. Thanks to the Thunderbolt™ 3 connectivity, the device is able to provide a significant graphics boost to laptops at a blazing-fast data transfer speed of 40Gbps. The Thunderbolt™ 3 plug-and-play support also allows for quick, easy connections without having to reboot the PC. The Gaming Box can also charge the connected laptop with the maximum of 100W of power at the same time.


Compared to other external graphics alternatives, the AORUS GTX 1080 Gaming Box is compact and takes up very little space for any office or home setup. Given its small form factor, the Gaming Box can be easily stored or even carried on the go with the included carrying bag, enhancing the device with better portability. There is customizable RGB lighting powered by GIGABYTE RGB Fusion illuminating from the inside of the chassis.

In addition to the graphics performance upgrade, the AORUS GTX 1080 Gaming Box serves as a complete docking station that complements today’s Ultrabook. Aside from 3 sets of DisplayPort, an HDMI, and a dual-link DVI outputs to connect up to 4 external monitors simultaneously, the device also has a total of three USB 3.0 ports available at the back for connecting peripherals or external storage for an enhanced user experience. There is also an extra Quick Charge 3.0 port that allows for personal mobile device charging at up to 4 times the speed of a conventional charger.
