EVGA built upon its legacy of innovative cooling solutions and powerful overclocking with its GTX 1080 Ti SC2 and FTW3 graphics cards. The GTX 1080 Ti proved to be a monster of a GPU in testing, and it will handle any game you throw at it, even in 4K. It matches the insanely powerful Titan X (which, admittedly, is meant more for AI and machine learning) and will power VR experiences without a hitch. Be sure to follow our site and YouTube channel closely for coverage throughout the week. The FBVDDQ controller is an IR3570, with additional controllers in the form of an IR3595 and PEX_VDD IR3899 controller. Reviewing the KINGPIN 2080 Ti is a tough job, but we've looked at it for "regular" use, water-cooled overclocking, liquid nitrogen overclocking, and more. Three 6mm heatpipes and three 8mm heatpipes run through the card, doubling up into stacks of two to increase thermal transfer capabilities in a small area. This truly is the pinnacle of 1080ti’s. The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti FTW3 Gaming's gross length is 30.2cm from the slot bracket's outer edge to the shroud's back, making it longer than the Aorus GTX 1080 Ti … The 1080 Ti ran the Witcher 3 at 100.9 fps at 1440p and ultra settings (but without HairWorks), and the original 1080 played the game at 77.2 fps. The 1080 Ti KINGPIN is designed for power, cable management, and control, featuring right-angle PCI-e connectors and an EVBOT connector. The 1080 Ti kept its lead on Ashes at 4K, playing the game at a smooth 59.5 fps. It is hard to expect the same overclock as a 1070 or even 1080. We’ll start with detailing the air cooler, then get into LN2 and power coverage. EVGA's KINGPIN products are known for their distinctive appearances, and the GTX 1080 Ti KINGPIN is no exception featuring its unmistakable mark of quality and performance. First for any EVGA GPU, a built in OLED display shows you all the card stats you could want, and … The GTX 1080 Ti Kingpin card is not a device built for “dailies,” but rather for extreme overclockers – people who are trying to break world records. The 1080 Ti is based on the Pascal architecture and features a slightly modified version of the same flagship GP102 silicon found in the Titan X Pascal. On the former, the Kingpin, the separable baseplate reduces the structural aspect of the baseplate, but improves functionality. Although the 1080 Ti is fantastic for 1440p 144 Hz and 4k 60 Hz, I would strongly advise against pairing this with one of the new 4k 144 Hz monitors. The GTX 1080 was still nice and smooth at 99 fps. wow it can’t get worse than this, but this truly is top tier, it’s binned, unlocked voltage, insane and overdone PCB, copper-plated fins, guaranteed 2Ghz OC. That number isn’t exact, but provides a conservative estimate on thermal performance improvement. As for the plates, we’ve got two to speak of: The baseplate is separable into two pieces, while the backplate is a monolithic die-cast plate. It costs $699 for the Founder's Edition, and partners will soon have their own cards. We’ve also got an interview with Kingpin and TiN of the EVGA OC team, who detail the card’s design in greater depth. The copper plating won’t heavily impact thermals and mostly adds to the look and weight of the card. Fin pitch and density are the same as the 1080 Ti FTW3, as are the milled holes and airflow channels and the multiple heatsink fin designs. It has 11GB of the high bandwidth GDDR5X video memory (versus 12GB in the Titan X Pascal) and an impressive 11GB frame buffer. On the Metro: Last Light benchmark at 1440p, the Titan X was less than a frame ahead of the 1080 Ti. On the Witcher 3 benchmark (Ultra, 1440p), the RTX 2080 Ti blasted its competitors, with a whopping 156.3 fps, while the GTX 1080 Ti (117.6 fps) could barely keep up and the Titan V … EVGA’s using a three-fan GPM design that’s driven by two MCUs (GPU + MEM) and one NXP KL26, which replaces the third MCU with a device that has more IO pins and additional ROM space. Also note that Nvidia has released a driver that supports 1080 Ti, which also adds DX12 enhancements.The numbers don't lie: the 1080 Ti goes toe-to-toe with the Titan X while playing games at both 1440p and 4K. That’s coming a bit later. EVGA’s GTX 1080 Ti Kingpin made its first debut to a group of press before Computex 2017, and we were given the privilege of being the first media to tear-down the card. © 1 year ago. The Titan hit 58.2 fps and the 1080 played at 44.2 fps. The NXP can still communicate with the other MCUs. The GeForce® GTX™ 1080 Ti was designed to be the most powerful desktop GPU ever created, and indeed it was. GamersNexus.net is Owned, Operated, & Maintained by GamersNexus, LLC. The card’s price is TBD, with release sometime in the next month or so – it might push into July. Tom's Guide is part of Future US Inc, an international media group and leading digital publisher.
