EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 HYBRID Launched

EVGA today launched the GeForce GTX 1080 HYBRID graphics card, priced at US $729.99, a $129.99 premium over the GTX 1080 baseline pricing. The card is characterized by a factory-fitted all-in-one, closed-loop liquid cooling solution that works in conjunction with a minor air cooling system. The liquid cooling component cools the factory-overclocked GPU, along with some of the heat from a base-plate cooling the memory and VRM; while a conventional 100 mm fan's air-flow actively cools that base-plate.

The underlying PCB is identical to that of the GTX 1080 Classified ACX 3.0 by EVGA. The card also offers the same factory-overclock as the Classified, with 1721 MHz core, 1860 MHz GPU Boost, and an untouched 10 GHz (GDDR5X-effective) memory. The card draws power from a pair of 8-pin PCIe power connectors, its display outputs include one each of HDMI 2.0b, dual-link DVI, and three DisplayPort 1.4 connectors. EVGA is giving away $115 worth in-game credit with Epic Games' upcoming MOBA title "Paragon" with this card.

Not running at 2GHz out of the box is disappointing... How loud are the fans on the actual card in these cases? Inaudible or they still make a lot of noise?

You do know how turbo boost works on pascal, right?

well at least this is not refference board (more phases, dual bios etc). Msi made same mistake - putting water on refference boards, but in the same time releasing buttloads of nor refference cards with air.

Those phases are pointless. You can't overclock any Pascal past its power limit. The best 1080 on sale is the one with the best cooler for the best price. PCB alterations are extra cost for zero benefit.

It's a freaking water cooled card. It should have 2GHz boost guaranteed. Strix GTX 1080 has a higher spec'd boost clock and it's air cooled. And yes, I know how boost works, it can go beyond this clock if conditions are met. But that's a "may or may not".

In future more and more models will show up with AIO system.
On these Hybrid cards metal plate cover and video memory.
If someone can't afford custom loop AIO Liquid cooler is best option.
Power Limit is I think 130% on Hybrid, I'm not sure, how much is for GTX1080 Founders Edition.
But to be honest GTX1080 is expensive, people don't see that but if they look better NVIDIA for 2 years after TITAN increase performance for 10% and 300$ cheaper.
For 2 years from TITAN X Maxwell. AMD need to launch 50% stronger card than Fury X to beat GTX1080.
GTX1080 worth 500$, not more.

yea I know (that all 1080's - both refference or custom, will hit the limit at same clocks) .... but then again why the hell there is so many msi with custom boards on air cooler, but the only one on water is a refference...

I didn't expect so elegant graphic card to show up.
When first Hybrid was launched I thought if EVGA design wider card with little bigger PCB and fan that could be excellent Hybrid Classified model.
And next year they launched bigger PCB only as FTW version. This is only solution if no custom loop. I keep side panel opened during summer gaming,
my air cooler is effective but on open space, not inside case. 270-280W power consumption of fabric clock, 200MHz overclocked card and results are big temps.
Without side panel temps are lower for 10-12C GPU and 7-8C cooler CPU and motherboard.

With AIO all air go out of case.
CORSAIR design some Magnet Levitation fans and they are silent on 2000RPM...
Two of them on radiator and temps will not pass 55-60C in most intensive gaming in closed case. AIO on CPU, AIO on GPU and case fans not need.
Ambient temps are lower than with 5 fans and Air cooled CPU/GPU.
Only you need to drop temps in room later.

Up to the consumer(s) to not reward that with a purchase

Meanwhile in the real world with me googling "which organs can humans live without?" These cards look awesome a simple yet sexy design, but sooooo pricey...still i prefer hybrids over waterblocks, once i manage to sell an arm and a leg this or something similar will be my first choice

The MSI Sea Hawk has a Power limit of 105% while this EVGA has a limit of 130%, which one would you choose?

Well, UK price for the Sea Hawk is a bone crushing £800 -in fact so is the EVGA Hybrid. What would I buy? The £569 Palit Jetstream.

Or, get a stock Titan that blows the 1080 out of the water.

And also blows away more cash from a wallet.

Agree. have a Palit GTX 1070 Super jetstream. i was looking at the Thunder master overclocking utility that comes with the card. it has a 114% power limit. runs at 2088 Mhz Core and 9000 Mhz memory pretty silent.
