EVGA Announces GeForce GTX 980 Ti FTW ACX 2.0+ Graphics Card

Introducing the EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti FTW. Accelerated by the groundbreaking NVIDIA Maxwell architecture, the EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti FTW ups the game with dual 8-Pin Power inputs, 8+2 Phase Power Design, Dual BIOSes and an included EVGA backplate. Not to mention this card packs 2816 NVIDIA CUDA Cores and 6GB of GDDR5 memory, giving you the horsepower to drive whatever comes next. In fact, the EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti FTW provides over 3x the performance and 3x the memory of previous-generation cards.

This card also features EVGA ACX 2.0+ cooling technology. EVGA ACX 2.0+ brings new features to the award winning EVGA ACX 2.0 cooling technology. A memory MOSFET Cooling Plate (MMCP) reduces MOSFET temperatures up to 13%, and optimized Straight Heat Pipes (SHP) additionally reduce GPU temperature by 5C. ACX 2.0+ coolers also feature optimized swept fan blades, double ball bearings and an extreme low power motor, delivering more air flow with less power, unlocking additional power for the GPU.
Key Features:
  • Fastest EVGA GTX 980 TI Next to K|NGP|N and Classified - 1291MHz Boost Clock with room for more.
  • 8+2 Power Phase Design allows for robust overclocking with an additional 25W of power headroom.
  • EVGA ACX 2.0 Cooling offers dramatically lower GPU temperatures and saves power, allowing for more power to be allocated for overclocking.
  • Double Ball Bearing Fans offer 400% longer lifespan than traditional sleeved bearing fans.
  • dB Noise Inverter turns the fans off below 60C, generating 0dB of noise.
  • Preinstalled Backplate
  • Built with 6GB of high performance GDDR5 memory for the best image quality and 4K gaming performance.

Reference pcb? In other words can this fit a full cover block?

It's reference PCB, with EVGA-chosen memory and VRM components. Slight variation.

I'm really not seeing the point of this card. The Classified has more VRMs and a higher power target at just $10 more.

Good catch, that is quite odd as it seems like a weird placement of the card at that little a difference in price.

Though I would be curious how much of a difference the additional phases make on overclocking that card.

On air I don't think that boosted VRM on classifield or kingpin matters, of course it's a compelely different thing on heavier overclocking on ln2 or something.

The Classified is larger so I would assume it would cool better from the larger heatsink.

If anyone here has ever bought a Sparkle Calibre class card, you know exactly why they did this....

those cards were AWESOME.

They dropped the price by $10, making it $20 under the Classified. This in my eyes makes it an understandable difference.
