EVGA Intros GeForce GTX 1080 Ti K|NGP|N Hydro Copper

EVGA today introduced its flagship graphics card, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti K|ngp|n Hydro Copper (model: 11G-P4-6799), tuned by the legendary overclocker Vince "K|ngp|n" Lucido himself. The card features the choicest VRM components, binned "GP102" ASIC and GDDR5X memory chips, to support not just the highest overclocking headroom among EVGA's lineup, but also its highest factory-overclocked speeds of 1582 MHz core, 1695 MHz GPU Boost, and 11.00 GHz (GDDR5X-effective) memory clocks.

The card is intended to be plumbed to your own liquid-cooling loop, and comes with an all-copper, full-coverage water-block. You also get EVGA's iCX technology, which puts 9 thermal sensors across various points in the card. Available now (in limited stocks), exclusively through EVGA's own online store, the card is priced at USD $1,249.

this is for users that don't look at price tags and want to run the best of the best.

If you have to ask or have to see the price tag then just go buy a normal gamers card like me ;)

oh and if you buy this and don't run it on a chiller at the max clock speed possible then well it is a complete waste. that card can likely handle the pushes being that it is a hand picked and hand built golden chip, at least one would hope given that price point

Buy reference card, stick EK full cover block on it = win & cheaper

As we all know, they can stack nuclear power plant on it and it won't overclock any higher than reference one if the ASIC is not right. So, there's that...

I admit that it looks good but not $1250 good.

Kingpin cards are premium (enthusiast level), builded to have max performance.

As @RejZoR suggests, FE 1080ti plus waterblock = better value, and probably same OC for 99% of folks. TBH, it's a 'I want it, I buy it' card. I had the Kingpin 980ti under water (and I knew how it would perform - I just wanted one) and it was no better than FE speeds under water.

Take off the waterblock though and throw it under LN2 and it will likely break records in the right hands. For those <1%.

Niche card for those that want one - nothing wrong with it but understand that it is absolutely, unequivocally NORMAL under water cooling. Except it is single slot, which is very nice.

I'd take that Galactic Pimpire Titan X over that. And I'd take two custom 1080 SLI with HB bridge over the Titan X.

LMAO.

So the card that's marketed on it's LN2 overclocking is now available with an even more expensive cooler to throw in the bin XD

Sadly you know people will still buy this so they can overclock it like a pro and get the extra 2-3FPS over doing the same with a reference card/block :P

All kingpin cards are guaranteed to OC to 2025 mhz as long as it's under 65c.
That's guaranteed by how Pascal works , Kingpin has nothing to do with it. And FE cards appear to have gone through the best binning process anyway. Literally every card can do between 2.0-2.1Ghz if kept cool enough.

I wouldn't doubt it could do 2150....
Hell even my 1060 can stay at 2176 mhz if the temperature is right , that isn't impressive at all but rather mediocre. Matter of the fact is they have little control over how much these chips can overclock due to how Nvidia designs these cards but people will still fall for it I guess.

Only on LN2, out of that, just forget about it. Even if you have an Legendary Binned Card you are still limited to Nvidia's 1.07v and Nvidia's PMS (power limit). The software to unlock the card is for a few.

I LOLed so hard @ "Galactic Pimpire" :D

I know it's off topic, but I just wanted you to know how much I appreciated that. :clap:
