Zotac has teased their GTX 1080 PGF GPU, a new GPU design that will have a thick RGB illuminated backplate, which can be set to several different colours or LED cycle modes. 

This new Zotac GTX 1080 PGF (Prime Gamer Force) looks like it would be the ideal GPU for a Tron or Portal themed PC built, at least judging by the pictures below. This GPU has an entirely custom PCB, which will be taller than that of a typical GTX 1080, and use a much larger cooler design. Looking at the renders it is not clear whether this GPU will be powered by one or two 8-pin PCIe power connectors, but it does have enough space for two.

With the release of Pascal Zotac will be releasing a new version of their FireStorm overclocking utility, which will allow you to change the LED colour of your Zotac GPU separately, making a Blue and Orange Portal themed build very possible. 

In these screenshots of the new OC utility Zotac does hint that the GDDR5X memory in the GTX 1080 will be overclockable, with the 5000MHz stock clocks of this GTX 1080 increased to 5650MHz, which will result in an effective clock speed of 11.3GHz and a total of 361GB/s of memory bandwidth. Sadly Zotac didn't give the GPU clock speeds the same overclocking treatment. 

We can see in this overclocking tool that lots of static and cycling colour options are available for the GTX 1080 PGF's LEDs, including brightness options and the ability to use different colours on the Zotac logo and the GPU backplate.
