Colorful iGame GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is a Graphics Card with a Display on it

Colorful made its mark on the industry with some of the most over-the-top designs, such as giving enthusiast-segment cooling on upper-mid range SKUs. With the iGame GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, Colorful allowed its engineers to run amok with ideas. Just as other graphics card designers are beginning to add RGB LED lighting elements to the glowing company logos on the cooler shrouds, colorful went ahead and attached a multi-segment display directly on the graphics card, which reads out temperatures, clock speeds, and fan-speeds in real-time. Something like this came in cumbersome detachable external OC modules. The 3-slot thick graphics card features the heaviest air-cooling solution Colorful ever made, mated to a custom-design PCB with a gargantuan 18-phase VRM that draws power from a pair of 8-pin PCIe power connectors. The card is expected to come out some time in April.

This card looks amazing. That status display is genuinely useful, the PSU is great and the cooler looks reasonable. I might just get this if the price isn't too high.

Do you find it expensive in the USA, because you do not know the prices here in Brazil hahaha, with the value of a complete PC there, you only buy a video card here.

They could have skipped the Chinese scooter look , but I like the display panel, and the massive cooler and VRM should help with overclocking.

Who really reads their video card display? Your better just to get the Founders reference card and throw a water cooler on it. butt ugly is fine as long as your running fast and quiet. and cool.

Are those 18-phase VRM all really get phase shifted form one and each other? If not then this is another gimmick catering to moarz iz better crowd again.

As an electronics engineer, I don't really see any point past 6-phase VRM anyway. Unless you really want to eliminate electrolytic capacitors (which apparently they do, looks like all solid tantalum, no Al/Al-poly).

Probably won't do anything to overclocking. Nvidia cards don't let increased voltage so all cards basically overclock the same limited to how good the silicon is.

Damn that is sexy. A tiny bit too gaudy but that freaking display more than makes up for that. I'm not very familiar with Colorful though....are they one of those Euro-only companies like Palit or are their cards available to US buyers? For that matter...are Palit cards available in the US now?

Lol I'm not even aware of the scooters you're referencing but that comment made me chuckle.
