EVGA today released its flagship graphics card, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti KINGPIN, designed by the legendary Vince "KINGPIN" Lucido himself. Unlike past generations of KINGPIN-branded flagships by EVGA, this card features an all-in-one closed-loop liquid cooling solution that's factory-fitted. The cold-plate of this CLC cools the GPU and memory, while a dedicated copper heatsink pulls heat from the VRM, and is ventilated by a 100 mm fan. Dissipating heat is a 240 mm x 120 mm radiator with two included high air-flow fans. For DIY liquid-cooling enthusiasts, EVGA is separately selling the Hydro Copper full-coverage water-block for this card. KINGPIN Cooling may offer LN2 evaporators for this card.

The PCB of this card has been designed by legendary volt-modder Illya "TiN" Tsemenko, and is an outstanding 12-layer thick, with high dispersion of electrical and signal traces to minimize interference. A 16+3 phase VRM powers the beast, made up of the most expensive components the industry has to offer. The VRM pulls power from three 8-pin PCIe power connectors.



You can manually switch between three BIOS ROMs on the card to recover from bad flashing or store your secret sauce better. An OLED display on the card's top shows real-time monitoring and diagnostics of the card, and can be programmed to show just about anything. You also get EVBot support and Probe-IT, headers to watch the card's various voltage domains externally, without sticking your multimeter around the PCB.

The factory-overclock may seem nothing to write home about in this price-category, with 1770 MHz GPU Boost, and an untouched 14 Gbps memory, however nobody buys this card for its out-of-the-box frequencies. Available exclusively to EVGA Associate Members, the RTX 2080 Ti KINGPIN is priced at USD $1,900.

Better wait til 7nm 3080 Ti KINGPIN, an investment like this will drop too much in price when 2nd gen RTX releases .

With shrink to 7nm in combination with major architectural improvements there will be a significant increase of Ray Tracing performance when 7nm hits the streets.

At this price point why not add another $200 or $300 and include a custom branded LN2 pot?

RTX is only in first gen and with shrink to 7nm in combination with significant architectural improvements there will be a good major increase of Ray Tracing performance when 7nm hits the streets.
I don't think anyone who's after this is gonna consider it as an investment.
it's not gonna drop in price as much as titans do.

I believe, if I remember rightly, that Vince said most of his cards can do 2200+ on the core, but don’t quote me on that. I’d have to look it up again.

I think I remember the same, all are hand picked samples, so makes sense.

This is where nVidia failed but bowing out of the partner program. Had this been in place nVida was in a position to have the driver install program look for the part number and proceed with driver install after:

a) Is Part No. in partner program whereby EVGA agrees to not use the brand name "Classified" on any competitor products ?
b) Install BIOS with allowable OC utility slider limits of +xx% on power and + yy% on voltage

They may have done this anyway but this is what partner program was intended to accomplish.

The catch here however is the MSI Lightning 20180 Ti OC'd managed +10 fps (4.4%) over the next closest card (MSI Gaming X Trio) tested by TPU. It accomplished this feat even tho TPU managed higher (+15 to 45) core OCs 5 other cards. Highest game performance is no longer dependent on having the highest core and memory OCs.. Will you pay that much more for the Lightning / Classified over the FTW / Gaming X ? nVidia clamped down both physically and legally with regard to what AIB vendors can do ... I don't see them investing in loosening those restrictions without branding protection.

Crazy graphic card. :)
I'm against investing in Turing, but if prices of high end hardware is not much for some people than it's little stupid to invest in any model of high end hardware.
Something little exotic and unique always give more satisfaction. Big win here is AIO Cooler. I don't support any more investing in graphic cards without some form of liquid cooling.
Maybe because I use them longer time and when they start to suffer to deliver playable fps temps are higher than month after purchase.

If someone could pay that much for graphic cards they probably already have custom loop water cooling system in their rig.

I don't get why they would limit their market for these cards to that extent.
It's not going to stop a person buying more than one to hold on to as a collectors piece until the price rises, so why bother.

I'd never do an EVGA hybrid again after the nightmare the last gen was (I bought 3) and how poorly I was treated by EVGA. YMMV

Edit, capitalized I

Steve from GN asked Vince why they opted for a hybrid cooler instead of a full block and his response was that this allowed for more stable overclocks and gave them more control over VRM temperatures; I don't really understand why the copper solution would work better but I want the copper element just for the looks.

I really want one but it's hard to justify paying a $600 premium over a founder's edition + EKWB full block for realistically no noticable gain in day-to-day performance.

I find AIO coolers unacceptable ... far too noisy on both CPUs and GPUs and worse cooling w/ 2 x 120mm AIOs than is available w/ air coolers.

After the last experience with EVGA, 20 support calls and 5 RMAs of same card over 18 month, I got shy .... then came the AIB fake out where the SC series came with reference instead of custom beefed up PCBs ,,, then the 970 where the 1/3 of the heat sink missed the GPU and after that the 1060 - 1080 SC and FTW's where they cheaped out not providing thermal pads. Very polite and never said no ... but 18 months of aggravation.

My first move would be removing stock fans and installing Noctua NF-A12x25 PWM.
I read reviews about very good performance of EVGA CLC AIO and great experience of people with EVGA Hybrid series.
This should be even better because dual radiator could improve temps for 10C.
No one would force me to buy GPU without waterblock of AIO any more, no one.
Because I want to heat go instantly out of case, I don't believe to case fans for removing so much heat as GPU and CPU produce.

No doubt this is best RTX2080Ti on market.
Before AIO coolers are louder. No with good fans as CORSAIR ML120 PRO and Noctua NF-A12x25 PWM they don't need to be loud at all.

RTX2080Ti K|NGP|N soon could become Hydro Copper.
And that's final seal and crown for best graphic card model 2019/Turing.

I swear rather one K|NGP|N Hydro Copper than two Founders.
Beautiful card, far more than dual triple cooler, extreme power section, great cooling on both models, power
cables hidden on back of card, temperature sensor.
This should be objective of every enthusiasts with deeper pocket who think between models of RTX2080Ti.

You can say what you want but this is king for Turing generation and best possible decision to abandon triple fan option and to go with AIO system or Hydro Copper.
