If you're looking for the ultimate in GeForce GTX 1080 Ti gaming goodness with a minimal footprint, it looks as though EVGA has the perfect solution for your beastly gaming rig. The enthusiast hardware company has just pulled the wraps off the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti K|NGP|N Hydro Copper.

The graphics card is guaranteed to overclock to at least 2,025MHz, which matches the specs of the air-cooled version of the card that launched earlier in 2017. Although 2,025GHz is guaranteed, base and boost clocks are pegged at a more sedate 1,582MHz and 1,695MHz respectively.

What makes the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti K|NGP|N Hydro Copper so special, however, is the fact that it is a single-slot solution that manages to squeeze in 9 thermal sensors, voltage measurement points, dual 8-pin power connectors (side-mounted), 10+3 power phase and a full cover backplate. And despite its low-profile design, EVGA still crams in three mini DisplayPort, HDMI 2.0 and DVI connectors.

Given all of the custom engineering that went into the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti K|NGP|N Hydro Copper, you might expect that it would be astronomically-priced -- and you'd be correct. While EVGA's air-cooled version of the card can be had for $999, the single-slot water-cooled version rings in at a dizzying $1,250 (it's available for pre-order right now direct from EVGA).

To put that in perspective, the tricked-out NVIDIA Star Wars TITAN Xp Collector's Edition (in either Jedi Order or Rebel Alliance configs) is available for "only" $1,200. However, if you're looking for an ultra high performance single-slot gaming solution, it appears that EVGA is the only game in town at this point.
