ASUS announces a more pocket-friendly variant of the GTX 1080

We've seen a few editions of the GTX 1080 that offer RGB lighting and custom cooling solutions, but ASUS has now announced a non-reference card aimed at the value segment. The GTX 1080 Turbo will be priced lower than the GTX 1080 Founders Edition, which retails for $699, while offering the same clock speeds.

The GTX 1080 Turbo will offer a core clock of 1607MHz, boost clock of 1733MHz, and 8GB of GDDR5X memory at 10GHz. The card eschews the aluminium cooler shroud for a plastic design with a black and silver color scheme.
