EVGA Announces Launch of Its Precision X1 Software for NVIDIA RTX 20-Series

EVGA today announced availability of their X1 Precision software suite for NVIDIA's RTX 20-series graphics cards. The Precision X1 software features a brand new layout, completely new codebase, new features and more, with EVGA saying it's faster, easier to user, and overall better than ever.

The Precision X12 includes a built-in overclock scanner, which automatically discovers your graphics' card hidden overclocking potential algorithmically. It also features an adjustable frequency curve, multi-GPU fan curve controls, and RGB LED control. And interestingly, in its press-release, EVGA themselves said that GTX support was coming soon - whether this refers to still-to-be-launched 20-series graphics cards, or just expanded support for pre-Turing graphics cards, is unclear.
Key Features
  • Brand new GUI that is faster and easier to use.
  • Real-Time wattage monitoring (on supported EVGA graphics cards).
  • Full support for GeForce RTX graphics cards (GTX support coming soon)
  • RGB LED Control supporting graphics cards and/or NVLink Bridge.
  • LED Sync that syncs with other EVGA RGB components.
  • Dynamically set independent voltage/frequency points for ultimate control.
  • New OC Scanner for finding the best stable overclock.
  • On-Screen-Display (OSD) shows your system vitals at a glance.
  • GPU Clock, Memory Clock and Voltage Control.
  • Custom fan control and fan curve.
  • Profiling system allowing up to 10 profiles with hotkey.
  • In game screenshot function.
  • + More!

Looks much better than the old version of Precision X which is quite frankly the least user friendly and most cluncky and worst looking software i have ever used

I mean I'd be shocked if the GTX support they were talking about didn't refer to Pascal cards and previous. Otherwise they'd have to maintain two codebases going forward for years between this new Precision software and the old one.

Duh, EVGA confirmed several times on Twitter themselves that it’ll at least support Maxwell and Pascal series as well, if not even further down. What’s unclear? Just scratch a bit deeper than the surface, lazy TPU writers.

Indeed X1 looks much better but honestly to me old Precision X/OC isn't that bad , certainly not the most user friendly software but you get used to it pretty quickly to the point where i would take XOC over Afterburner any day of the week .

Why so ... against the TPU-Writers? If You are so negative against their writing, why do You hang around???

I might be buying a GTX 1080 Ti and the MSI Gaming X Trio is the cheapest Ti model where i am from
Never owned anything from MSI before so no idea how good their software is?

Really dont feel like getting another EVGA card

So no criticism allowed now when they do sloppy job for their writing?

You can critisize them, but to quote reddit (I know, I know) "remember the human."

All writers make occasional mistakes. There is a way to make constructive criticism. Yours didn't really fit that mold.

EVGA has better customer service. MSI Afterburner is slightly easier to use, but you should use the software from the respective card manufacturer as there are features not enabled on the MSI Afterburner for other cards, such as the thermal sensor for EVGA cards.

I am not talking about Afterburner is was talking about MSI Mystic Light or whatever they call it

Absolutely, I ditched it back then and never came back.

MSI Afterburner all the way. Simple, functional. What more does one need...

Yeah, they better have good customer service because the past generations of GPU they really did need it. Bad cooler design is fast becoming their trademark.

I'm staying far away from EVGA these days...

As for all the extra hardware on the cards... most of it is effectively useless and a total waste of space. The FTWs carry extra power phases that effectively do nothing because Pascal BIOS didn't allow them to. And I could name another dozen examples. Its all marketing and means nothing in practice.

To me Afterburner and Precision are the best OCing softwares out there , you can't go wrogn with either of them the difference is more on the aesthetic side than anything esle.
