EVGA’s 1080 Ti KINGPIN Card Guarantees 2,025MHz Overclock


EVGA’s 1080 Ti KINGPIN Card Guarantees 2,025MHz Overclock

iCX Technology, an efficient heatpipe layout, and highly efficient digital VRM are what make this very fast graphics card possible.

Nvidia's high-end Titan Xp graphics card costs a whopping $1,200. That's beyond most people's budgets, but the next card down, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is also a very capable card and can be picked up for around $700. However, EVGA decided to offer a new 1080 Ti featuring a guaranteed huge overclock.

For reference, a stock 1080 Ti graphics card ships with a base core clock speed of 1,480MHz and a boost core clock of 1,582MHz. EVGA worked with renowned overclocked Vince "KINGPIN" Lucido to produce the EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti KINGPIN. What makes this card so special is it is guaranteed to run at 2,025MHz as a minimum overclock.

EVGA achieved such a huge overclock by redesigning the entire card. It uses iCX Technology, which features 9 extra sensors on the PCB, a brand new baseplate and backplate design, directed airflow chambers, asynchronous fan control, and a new efficient heatpipe layout.

According to Tom's Hardware, EVGA also used a 15-phase digital VRM (voltage regulator module) and dual 8-pin power connectors. So while the card is running with an extreme overclock, EVGA is ensuring it's well within safe parameters due to the improved cooling and power management on board.


Beyond the guaranteed overclock, you're getting the expected feature set of a stock 1080 Ti card. That includes 3,584 CUDA cores, 11GB of GDDR5X memory running at 11Gbps over a 352-bit bus, and a TDP of 250W. But that overclock should make all the difference when it comes to benchmark performance.

The EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti KINGPIN is expected to be available in July, but a price has yet to be revealed. Expect a healthy premium on top of the $700 asking price of a standard 1080 Ti card.
