EVGA Flaunts Trio Of Custom Mighty GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Cards
Do you have a fever, and the only prescription is more GeForce GTX 1080 Ti? Well, sit back and take a seat, because EVGA has no less than three custom graphics cards coming your way — and that is in addition to the already-announced Founders Edition.
As you might already know, the Founders Edition has a base clock of 1480MHz and a boost clock of 1582MHz, with a texture fill rate of 331.5GT/s. The 11GB of GDDR5X memory is clocked at 11GHz providing effective memory bandwidth of 484 GB/s.
But EVGA’s custom boards start ramping up the clock speeds and employ the company’s own patented cooling systems to keep board temperatures in check. EVGA’s standard GeForce GTX 1080 Ti cranks the base and boost clocks to 1556MHz and 1670MHz respectively, boasting a texture fill rate of 348.5GT/s. Memory remains unchanged with an effective clock rate of 11GHz and the card uses EVGA’s iCX-style cooler.
Moving up the ladder, we have the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 Gaming, which has the same GPU and memory speeds as EVGA’s standard GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, but adds in nine thermal sensors. At the top of the totem pole is the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti FTW3 GAMING, which cranks the GPU base and boost clocks to 1569MHz and 1683MHz respectively (351.5GT/s). This card also features iCX cooling and nine temperature sensors, but ups the ante with dual BIOS chips, two 8-pin power connectors, 10+2 power phase delivery and RGB lighting.
We should mention that while the EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition is of course priced at $699, EVGA has yet to announce pricing or availability for its three custom boards. But we’ll keep you updated as soon as we are privy to this information.
It should also be noted that EVGA and Vince “K|NGP|N” Lucido have been working some liquid nitrogen magic on the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founder Edition. K|NGP|N was first able to overclock the card to 2.5GHz, which in turn generated an off-the-charts benchmark run in 3DMark Time Spy. More recently, K|NGP|N was able to move the GPU dial past 3GHz.
