Over the weekend, we reported on a five-alarm issue involving certain NVIDIA GeForce 10-Series graphics cards from EVGA. Customers of affected cards have witnessed intermittent screen anomalies with their cards, which foreshadows impending doom. Others have witnessed their cards go up in flames, with the voltage regulator module (VRM) overheating due to improper cooling. Testing has shown that in some cases, parts of the PCB on affected cards has reached upwards of 107C. After issuing an initial statement on the matter when the first reports starting spreading, EVGA is back now with further information... Read more...
Following a rash of complaints about overheating graphics cards causing black screens and, in some cases, even burning up and dying, EVGA is extending an olive branch of sorts by offering owners of its FTW GeForce GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 graphics cards a free thermal pad. Affected owners would probably prefer EVGA acknowledge there's an issue, but so far it hasn't done so. There are multiple forum threads on EVGA's forum and Reddit filled with user accounts of FTW GTX 1070 and 1080 cards running uncomfortably hot. In one post, Reddit user "Mydst" says he saw a "bright orange flame" shoot out about... Read more...
Although rumors had been circulating for a while, NVIDIA went ahead and made the GeForce GTX 1050 and GeForce GTX 1050 Ti official last week with an announcement featuring a number of details about the cards. In the announcement, NVIDIA covered some of the speeds and feeds, revealed a number of partner board designs, and revealed expected pricing. Performance, however, was not discussed. Today we’re able to tell all, with a trio of GeForce GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti cards from MSI and EVGA. We’ve got two cards from MSI – in both plain vanilla and Ti flavors – along with an EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti... Read more...
EVGA is sweetening the deal for customers choose its GeForce GTX 10-Series graphics cards. The company is giving away free PowerLink adapters to those who purchase new EVGA graphics cards, and is even extending the offer to owners of existing GeForce GTX 10-Series graphics cards. To take part in the promotion, your graphics card must be registered with EVGA and you must sign up using EVGA’s online request form. We should note that EVGA says that you’ll still be responsible for shipping and handling charges and that supplies are limited, so it’d be in your best interest to get in early to reserve...

NVIDIA hit a lot of high notes with the Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1080. When the Founder’s Edition launched earlier this summer, it received accolades for its excellent performance, power efficiency, and host of new features. If you’d like a refresher on what’s new in NVIDIA’s Pascal architecture and see what makes the GeForce GTX 1080 Founder’s Edition tick, we’d strongly suggest checking our launch coverage. We’ve got the full scoop laid out for you there.As HOT as the GeForce GTX 1080 Founder’s Edition is, we were eager to see what NVIDIA’s board partners would do with the GTX 1080. The GP104...

NVIDIA just announced a new, cheaper variant of its Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card. While the standard GTX 1060 comes with 6GB of memory and retails for $249, NVIDIA is launching a 3GB variant that costs just $199. All other specs remain the same, which means that you’ll find 1152 CUDA cores, a base clock of 1506MHz, a boost clock of 1708MHz, a 192-bit memory interface and a TDP of 120 watts. NVIDIA does note, however, that the GTX 1060 6GB is on average about 5 percent faster than its new 3GB counterpart. On the other hand, NVIDIA is also quick to point out that the GTX 1060 3GB is...

Today is a massive day for gaming notebooks thanks to the launch of NVIDIA's latest mobile-bound GeForce graphics cards. As covered in our launch article, these GPUs don't feature the "M" that we've seen in years' past - these are full-blown desktop chips. That means one thing: they're powerful. Seriously powerful. As expected with any new GPU launch, a slew of vendors have today announced their latest wares, and that includes EVGA. The company announced its SC17 17-inch notebook back at CES, but at the time it shipped with the 900-series GeForce chips. Now, it's been upgraded to support the GTX... Read more...
If you’ve already read Marco’s excellent analysis of the GeForce GTX 1060, then you know that NVIDIA has produced a compelling graphics card for the mainstream market that offers respectable performance and extremely low power consumption (and if you haven’t read the review, you can find it here). And following the official reveal of a new GeForce card came a flurry of announcements from NVIDIA’s graphics partners; all of which are looking corner the market with multiple variants catering to the widest pool of gamers. So far, we’ve seen numerous entries from ASUS, MSI, EVGA and Gigabyte (among... Read more...
When NVIDIA announced the new GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1070 graphics cards last month, the company introduced an update to its SLI interface. Dubbed SLI HB Bridge, it offers double the bandwidth compared to the previous generation Maxwell architecture. This enables 2560x1440 gaming at 120+ Hz along with support for 4K/5K gaming and NVIDIA Surround. And as we’ve previously detailed, the SLI HB Bridge operates at 650MHz as opposed to 400MHz with previous SLI bridges. With this in mind, EVGA has some up with its own SLI HB Bridge for gamers looking to boost performance at higher resolutions... Read more...
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...
EVGA set up shop in a swank suite at the Bellagio Hotel a short distance away from the craziness of the Las Vegas Convention Center, to display its latest products to CES attendees. As you’d expect, EVGA had a wide array of motherboards and NVIDIA GPU-based graphics cards on hand, including a custom GeForce GTX 980 Ti geared for the upcoming wave of VR gear, but the company also revealed some upcoming products that have nothing to do with graphics.     Some of EVGA’s high-end, custom GeForce GTX cards were displayed in a glass case, with a trio of EVGA’s custom SLI bridges...

EVGA decided to branch out this year. No, not with AMD graphics; the company's GPU offerings are still very much based on reference cards from Team Green. Yet, in an effort to expand their product lines, the largest North American vendor of NVIDIA graphics cards now offers their own branded memory modules in both DDR3 and DDR4 flavors, spanning 10 different SKUs. Today, we’re checking out the burliest DRAM module set on offer—the High Performance 2800 SuperSC DDR4 Series 16GB kit (4x4GB). Many DIY builders still using older platforms and DDR3 are wondering if they'll see concrete benefits from... Read more...
Whenever a company uses the word "value" to describe a product, our skepticism meter starts buzzing. In many cases, their definition of value either differs from ours, or the low price comes at the expense of quality. EVGA contends that neither is the case with its new line of GQ power supplies for budget conscious buyers. The tagline for these new models is "great quality, great value," and indeed the GQ line delivers the goods with things like 80 Plus Gold certification, an ECO fan mode for near silent operation, high-quality Japanese capacitors that aren't likely to bulge or leak, and a semi-modular...

Although the $999 GeForce GTX Titan X is currently the King of the single-GPU hill, NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 980 Ti is the far more palatable option for most hardcore enthusiasts, due to its lower $649 starting price point. As we showed you in our initial coverage of the GeForce GTX 980 Ti, however, the card is still a monster in terms of performance. It typically outpaces AMD’s flagship Radeon R9 Fury X (at least with DX11 titles) and it finishes only a few percentage points behind the much pricier Titan X.NVIDIA’s partners have also taken the GeForce GTX 980 Ti and morphed it into something even...
