With Assassin’s Creed Origins finally out, ASUS has unveiled a brand new graphics card, the ROG STRIX 1080 Ti Assassin’s Creed Origins Edition.
Visually, the graphics card is sporting a beautiful brown/gold finish across the product followed by a backplate that incorporates Egyptian hieroglyphs. Additionally, the design has a 12+2 phase VRM and dual 8-pin power connectors with a boost clock speed of 1.7GHz, which is the same clock speed as ASUS’ current ROG Strix OC model. Unfortunately, it is slightly slower than the GTX 1080 Ti Poseidon.
The 1080 Ti Assassin’s Creed: Origins Edition also features Aura RGB Lighting on the front and pack of the cards. One of the most notable features on ROG Strix graphics cards is the ability to display millions of colors and six different effects, which you can customize to your liking. On top of that ROG Strix graphics cards also include ASUS Aura Sync, RGB LED synchronization technology; this allows gamers to have free reign for system personalization when the graphics card is paired with an Aura-enabled gaming motherboard.
Personally, although I am not a hardcore fan of the series, I love how ASUS incorporated Origins‘ Egyptian theme into their GPU. Even better is the fact that the card includes a free copy of Assassin’s Creed Origins for those that purchase it.
Currently, the 1080 Ti Assassin’s Creed Origins Edition does not have a release date or a retail price. You can check out our review of Assassin Creed: Origins here as well as several screenshots of the product below:
