Gigabyte has now announce enhanced GTX 1080 and 1060 variants, both of which offer memory clock speeds that are 1000MHz higher than their standard/reference counterparts. 
 
This will give these new GTX 1080 a 10% boost in memory bandwidth and give the GTX 1060 a 12.5% boost in memory bandwidth. combine these changed with strong factory overclocks and gamers will receive a large increase in GPU performance when compared to Nvidia’s reference GPU designs.
