How many GPU video ports is too many? The Aorus RTX 2080 packs seven

September 25, 2018 / Jon Martindale

Nvidia’s new RTX-series graphics cards have only been shipping for a few days, but already aftermarket versions are starting to appear with simply ludicrous configurations. The Aorus GeForce RTX 2080 Xtreme 8G comes with all of the Turing cores, RT cores, and general processing power of a standard (albeit likely overclocked) 2080, but it also comes with a massive three-fan cooling solution and as many as seven video output ports on the back.Standard RTX 2080 cards ship out with five video ports, but the new Auros branded card takes that to a new level. The addition of two extra HDMI 2.0b ports brings the total to three, with an additional three DisplayPort 1.4 connectors, and a USB-C port with VirtualLink. That makes it possible to output to four different displays at once (and a VR headset) leveraging either three HDMI, a DisplayPort, and the USB-C connector, or three DisplayPort, an HDMI, and the USB-C port.
