According to IDC the global market for augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) headsets is up by 25.5% Y-o-Y on Q2 2017, as shipments total 2.1 million.

Volumes are "slightly" down on a Q-o-Q basis, but recent price cuts on existing products and new product announcements should build the groundwork for a successful holiday season.

IDC VR Market

"Growth in the VR market has been rather sluggish compared to other recently introduced technologies as the amount of investment and, more importantly, the need for end user education is extremely high for VR," the analyst remarks. "Though the recent price cuts across all major platforms will help alleviate one of the barriers to adoption, providing consumers the opportunity to learn about products and try before they buy is still a significant hurdle faced by most companies."

The Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 8G claims something of a record-- it is one of the smallest versions of the Nvidia GTX 1080 graphics card around, being all of 169mm long to fit mini ITX specifications.

Gigabyte GeforceSuch dimensions come through a single-fan configuration with a semi-passive (turns off under certain loads/temperatures) 90mm fan. Further aiding cooling is a triple heat pipe cooling solution and 5+2 power phases. Power comes through an 8 pin connector on the top, while construction promises "ultra durable" chokes and capacitors.

The card runs at 1607MHz base and 1733MHz boost, and offers a preset overclocked mode with 1632MHz base and 1771MHz boost accessible via Aorus Graphics Engine app. The utility also allows users to tweak clock speeds, voltage, fan performance and power targets, and comes complete with monitoring functionality.
