EVGA finally revealed their GTX 1080 Ti KingPin Edition graphics card under their continuing line of “K|ngP|n” licensed graphic cards which includes performance with stability , cooling and aesthetics setting it apart from the other 1080 Ti editions.
If we wish to see the card from it’s design perspective , we get to peek at it’s oversized PCB with the iCX cooler with an extended copper heatsink and two right edged 8-pin power connectors being an obsession for neat cable management using the EVGA PowerLink. It’s a true single slot card as it recalls it’s thinness by removing the iCX cooler which would give enthusiasts more options for overclocking .
Spec wise speaking , the EVGA GTX 1080Ti KingPin card features a ton of display outputs as the dual-link DVI ,HDMI 2.0 and three Mini DisplayPort 1.3 connector and maybe comparable to the 1080Ti reference design in terms of three full-sized DisplayPort and single HDMI outputs. The existence of the DVI port may arise sparks inside of NVIDIA’s customers who weren’t that fan of NVIDIA’s statement of removing the ‘legacy’ connector.
Now comes the fun stuff which I like the most , the art of pushing the hardware beyond it’s limits , overclocking .NVIDIA claims that customers can tune and achieve huge results from this edition guaranteed at least 2025Mhz right from the bed compared to the base clocks of the reference models – 1480MHz and boosts of 1600Mhz.
Yet to decide a release date , EVGA is planning to price this fast premium model anywhere between $100 to $400.
