GeForce 9800M GTX 

Released July, 2008
  • 500 MHz
  • 1 GB GDDR3

One of the problems we're starting to run into with mobile GPUs getting so fast is that many laptops still top out at a 1920x1080 display, and even at maximum detail there are plenty of games that will easily break 60 FPS and may start running into CPU bottlenecks.

Of our games only Bioshock Infinite, Crysis 3, and Battlefield 4 maintain an average clockspeed over 1200MHz, with everything else falling to between 1151MHz and 1192MHz.

3GB Version of NVIDIA GTX 1060 Has 128 Fewer CUDA Cores

by Sebastian Peak |
Boost clocks are the same at 1.7 GHz, and the 3GB version will still operate with a 120W TDP and require a 6-pin power connector.
NVIDIA will offer a 3GB version of the GTX 1060, and there's more to the story than the obvious fact that is has half the frame buffer of the 6GB version available now.

Corsair Releases Hydro GFX GTX 1080 Liquid-Cooled Graphics Card

by Sebastian Peak |
A pre-installed low-noise LED-lit 120mm fan ensures steady, reliable air-flow, keeping GPU temperatures down and clock speeds high.
“The CORSAIR Hydro GFX GTX 1080 brings all the benefits of liquid cooling to the GeForce GTX 1080, boasting an integrated CORSAIR Hydro Series H55 cooler that draws heat from the GPU via a micro-fin copper base cold plate and dissipates it efficiently using a 120mm high-surface area radiator.
Performance (overclocking, power)95%Quality (build, design, cooling)95%General Features (display outputs, etc)100%Bundle, Packaging & Software100%Value for Money90% Overall TweakTown Rating96% The Bottom Line: GIGABYTE's GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming has great performance, an awesome cooler, and a VR Premium Pack that provides USB 3.0 + HDMI ports for the front of your PC.
For those who want the GIGABYTE branding and experience, the GTX 1080 G1 Gaming is still a great card, but for those who want the absolute best, this is where the GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming steps up to the plate.
Oddly, Phanteks shows the LEDs using three individual cables that then go off to a reported proprietary power adapter that can plug into RGB motherboards or Phanteks' cases.
Phanteks allegedly uses Dupont Viton for the gaskets which is a "high-performance seal elastomer" for the aerospace industry (and overkill for the temps that will be seen in a PC water loop heh).
