Soon after NVIDIA's Founder’s Edition GeForce GTX 1080 Ti hit the scene, board partners readied custom cards, like the EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 GAMING with iCX technology we’ll be showing you here. We have already taken a look at a powerful behemoth from Gigabyte, and MSI chimed in recently as well. Today’s combatant from EVGA, though slightly more tame in terms of clock speeds, may just be the most attractive to the data junkies and tweakers among you.EVGA’s iCX technology is interesting for a few reasons. It incorporates a plethora of additional sensors onto the card, along with a protection... Read more...
For close to two decades, EVGA has been producing graphics cards based on NVIDIA GPU technology. The company's current line-up consists of literally dozens of cards featuring GeForce GTX 10-series GPUs, with various clock speeds, cooler configurations, and form factors. Although the GeForce 10 series has been out for quite a while now, and EVGA already has a voluminous line-up of cards, the company isn’t done releasing new products just yet. In fact, the GeForce GTX 1080 FTW2 card featuring EVGA’s iCX technology we’ll be showing you here is arguably the company’s most extensive revamp yet.EVGA... Read more...
Something obvious to anyone that’s done any shopping for graphics cards recently is that NVIDIA’s add-in board partners have gone all-in on Pascal. Virtually all of NVIDIA’s tier 1 partners have dozens of Pascal-based products in their line-up, from ultra-powerful, triple-slot, overclocked GeForce GTX 1080s to half-height, low-power GTX 1050s. Tucked away neatly in the middle, however, is a graphics card with enough muscle to power a mainstream gaming system, but in a form factor that’s small and power-friendly enough for a compact mini-ITX build – this is the EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming.If you...

As much as we’d love to drop everything we're doing and dive in head first with this absolutely HOT piece of hardware that just landed in the lab, there is just too much happening over the next few days with Computex starting, and a handful of high-profile launches to go along with it. In any event, an EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Superclocked Edition card with ACX 3.0 cooling just arrived and we had to give you a little taste of what this beast has in store. Prepare to eat your heart out...  The EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Superclocked is probably the most aggressive-looking card we’ve seen out of... Read more...
Coincident with the launch of NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 700 series of products, EVGA unveiled a new invention of its own: the ACX cooler. ACX is an acronym for "Active Cooling Extreme" and as the name suggests, it’s a cooling solution for high-end graphics cards. To date, we have looked at two ACX-equipped graphics cards, the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 SC ACX and GeForce GTX 760 SC ACX. We found both cards to be class-leading products and liked them very much. And so far, the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 SC ACX remains the fastest, single-GPU powered graphics card we have tested. It’s factory... Read more...
Once you've been bit by the enthusiast bug, a funny thing happens. Graphics cards are never fast enough. Processors will never be too powerful. And motherboards will never have too many features. Manufacturers continue to push the envelope and make enthusiast level products because of demand. Along with the goal of being the best in their respective markets, many hardware companies continue to improve their product line up to stay competitive, while also offering consumers options at different price points and performance levels. Located in Brea, California, EVGA has a solid reputation in the industry.... Read more...
When it comes to high end graphics cards, too much is never enough. As gamers, our insatiable thirst for more pixel pushing power leads to a never ending cycle of exotic, enthusiast level videocards, including dual GPU models that take up two or three expansion slots on our motherboard. Add In Board (AIB) partner companies like EVGA regularly take supplementary measures to accommodate consumers who desire products that perform faster, run cooler, and operate with less noise than reference design models. For the most part, these steps may consist of more aggressively binning GPUs in order to... Read more...
Synopsis:  EVGA's Interview Dual Monitor System incorporates a pair of 17" widescreen LCDs with an innovative rotatable stand that allows the user to flip a panel over to share a desktop display with someone sitting across from them on the other side of the desk.  These twin TFT displays support a native resolution of 1440X900 and rotate 180 degrees vertically and 90 degrees horizontally.  They will also re-orientate themselves depending on which direction they are flipped, in order to provide the correct viewing orientation for the user that is facing the display.  The system...

A few weeks back, we took an in-depth look at the dual-GPU powered NVIDIA GeForce GTX 295. Just to recap a bit; the GeForce GTX 295 is NVIDIA's current flagship graphics card that couples a pair of 55nm GT200 GPUs with 1792MB of frame buffer memory, culminating in what is ultimately the fastest, single graphics adapter on the market at this time. It appeared after about 5 months of work and fine tuning, NVIDIA was sick and tired of letting AMD's Radeon HD 4870 X2  lead the pack as the fastest single graphics card in the market.In our launch article, we also gave you a glimpse of the EVGA GeForce...

  When we think about ECS and their product lines, we typically expect a budget-minded approach.  Solid products at reasonable prices that don't exactly wow the consumer, but don't hit them hard in the wallet either.  The ECS X48T-A motherboard that we looked at a few weeks ago was one of the first steps by ECS to change that image, although a few missteps with the construction as well as some overclocking issues didn't overly sway us to their new way of thinking.  Thus, we were a bit surprised when we first heard about the ECS GeForce 9800 GTX+ Hydra - a twin pack...

As enthusiasts, we'd all love to own a killer quad-core powered rig complete with a healthy amount of RAM, super-fast hard drives, and a pair of NVIDIA's flagship GeForce 8800 GTX cards pushing the pixels. The kind coin required to assemble a system like this puts them well out of reach for the majority of us, however, hence the immense popularity of more affordable, mainstream products like the one we're going to talk about today, EVGA's e-GeForce 7950 GT KO. As the newest member of the GeForce 7 family, the GeForce 7950 GT has a lot going for it. The GPU offers all of the features... Read more...
When we first took a look at the Gigabyte GA-SN-SLI Quad Royal motherboard a few months back, we gave it solid praise, yet lamented on what we thought was an exciting opportunity. The board was capable of supporting up to four individual PCI-e based graphic cards, but the Quad Royal was only able to support two GeForce cards running in an SLI configuration. Around the same time we posted that review, however, NVIDIA was promoting Quad SLI in pre-configured systems through a handful of resellers - typically for a premium. NVIDIA remained mum on the prospect of a DYI Quad SLI setup for a time,... Read more...
Almost immediately after we begun working with NVIDIA's reference GeForce 7800 GTX cards in the days and weeks leading up to the launch, we were contacted by a handful of NVIDIA's launch partners and informed that they'd have retail hardware ready to coincide with the official announcement of the GeForce 7800 GTX.  Leadtek, Gigabyte, BFG, MSI, Asus and EVGA were among the first to contact us with some specifics regarding their respective GeForce 7800 GTX cards.  The first one to send us a sample for review, however, was EVGA. The e-GeForce 7800 GTX we'll be showcasing today is one of... Read more...
Back in May '04, NVIDIA introduced the GeForce 6800 Ultra Extreme Edition to counter the launch of ATi's Radeon X800 XT Platinum Edition, and gamers the world over took notice.  Just a few weeks earlier, the GeForce 6800 Ultra was unveiled, and at the time it was smoking through benchmarks like nobody's business.  Then, about a month later NVIDIA announces this new card and it's got a 16-Pipe NV40 core running a full 50MHz faster than the "stock" 6800 Ultra.  On top of that, it was said that some AIC partners may even ship cards with faster memory as well, offering even...
