Colorful Showcases Two GTX 1080 Ti Graphics Cards

At Computex 2017, Colorful showcased another two graphics cards based on NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics. First up, we have the iGame GTX 1080 Ti Kudan, a black and gold, triple-fan, triple-slot graphics card, and it would appear it also includes fittings for a watercooling solution. The golden gears and clockwork-reminiscent design may seem a little gaudy, but I actually like it, in a steampunk kind of way. The card features a status monitor (probably to show temperature and clock states), features a 16+2 phases power design, and colorful is boasting of tantalum capacitors. Its stock clock is at 1480 MHz base, while the memory speed seems to remain at stock. The card features a one-key overclock function, though how big an overclock this enables currently stands as "TBD". Connectors-wise, the card comes with 2x DisplayPort, 2x HDMI, and 1x DVI-D.
Next up, we have the iGame GTX 1080 Ti Customization, and this one is... A little too aggressive on its militaristic design, to be honest. It's "designed on the shape of a plane on front and back according to military", taking fighter planes and turbo engines as core design ideas. Your mileage may vary regarding the design, but I'm sure we can all agree that that piece of red plastic is doing nothing good by covering the middle, 80 mm fan (the other fans on both sides of it are 90 mm.) To achieve the plane design on the back, Colorful added 2x 40 mm fans on the back of the card, though those can't be seen on the pictures. This one is a two-slot design, and I'd wager the 2x 40 mm fans on the back aren't enough to hamper usage of an M.2 SSd or even a PCI-based sound-card above it. The base clock stands at the same 1480 MHz as the Kudan, and the iGame GTX 1080 Ti Customization features the same one-click overclocking capability as well, though it's overclocked speeds are a promising "MHz MHz". Display outputs remain the same 2x DisplayPort, 2x HDMI, and 1x DVI-D.

Is it just me, or does it look like the Kudan also has a water block fitted to it? Correct me if I'm wrong.

It does appear to have a block mounted on it under the shroud.
Triple slot card is certainly big enough for it.

It seems to be a rather interesting concept, like the ROG Poseidon, but triple slot seems a touch over board IMO, although I am all in for overboard pc tech :laugh:

IMO it looks stupid that it has the fans spinning when it's only for show. But maybe that's just me. :D

I agree, what are they trying to cool if they have a full cover water block? The power connectors?

I think that's just the stand, not a waterblock :)

Colorful certainly does make some radical looking cards. Too much bling for me though.

That website is so badly designed. Even a Google site search for "Colorful 1080 Ti Kudan" gave nothing :(
