Remember that EVGA card to end all cards
? Well, EVGA has now officially announced it. Built in collaboration with overclocker K|ngp|n (Vince Lucido), the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti K|ngp|n Edition Graphics Card sports a cooler that builds upon the iCX technology innovations EVGA has been moving towards. In addition, the company has redoubled efforts towards packing the highest-grade electrical components in this graphics card for extreme overclocking methods, even going so far as to include support (via a connector) to external overclocking modules such as EVBot.
While the cooler is reminiscent of EVGA's other iCX 3.0 coolers, the GTX 1080 Ti K|ngp|n Edition features a copper-plates aluminum heatsink. The K|ngp|n Edition comes with a fully LN2-geared PCB, which looks to aid in this kind of cooling. The I/O bracket is home to 3x Mini-DisplayPort 1.3, 1x DVI and 1x HDMI 2.0. This uncommon allocation of ports was done so as not to have the connectivity occupying two slots, which in turn allows users to fit the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti K|ngp|n Edition, with a single-slot water-cooling solution. EVGA guarantees that these cards will reach at the very least 2025 MHz when overclocked, which are some serious MHz increase over stock - the 2x 8-pin power connectors must be aiding this, though these aren't as overly extravagant as some other 3x 8-pin solutions we've seen
. Expect the GTX 1080 Ti Kingpin Edition to be available in July.
