EVGA Introduces Its GeForce GTX 1050 3 GB Graphics Cards

EVGA announced the market availability of a "vanilla" GTX 1050 3 GB graphics card (the Gaming 03G) and its SuperClocked variant (the SC Gaming 03G). They both carry the same 768 CUDA cores. Clocks for the Gaming 03G are NVIDIA reference (1392 MHz base, up to 1518 MHz boost, 3 GB of 7008 MHz GDDR5 memory across a 96-bit memory bus), and the SuperClocked version brings the core clocks up to 1455MHz and 1569MHz (base and boost, respectively).

The graphics cards come in a short form factor (144.78mm x 111.15mm) - a simple, single-fan cooling solution is more than enough to cool down the GPU, which only needs PCIe power to function correctly. Display outputs are set at 1x dual-link DVI-D, 1x DisplayPort 1.4, and 1x HDMI 2.0. The Gaming 03G version is available for $159.99, while the SuperClocked version comes in at $169.99. Both feature a three-year warranty.

EVGA Unveils the Super G7 1000, The Most Compact 1000W PSU

EVGA showed off a prototype of the Super G7 1000, the most compact 1000-Watt power supply. This unit is just 125 mm in length, or about the length of mainstream 400-600W PSUs, but is fully modular, and packs a 1000W punch. The unit is about 17% smaller than a SuperNova 1000 G3, and is expected to be cheaper than it. This feat is made possible by some parts of the main PCB made to stand as perpendicular daughterboards. The unit still manages to tick all high-end checkboxes, including a single +12V design, DC-to-DC switching, 80 Plus Platinum efficiency, electrical protections, and full modular cabling. It measures 150 mm x 86 mm x 125 mm (WxHxD), and employs a 120 mm fan to keep cool. EVGA plans to launch this some time in September 2018.

EVGA Shows Off SuperNova G+ Series High-Wattage PSUs

EVGA grabbed quite some attention at CES earlier this year, when it unveiled its gargantuan SuperNova 2200W P2 power-supply. The P2 series are 80 Plus Platinum rated. EVGA thinks there's room for a slightly cheaper line of high-Wattage PSUs that are 80 Plus Gold rated, but have the feature-set of more expensive P2 series models. Enter the G+ series. For now, the series has to very dissimilar variants - the SuperNova 850W G+, and the SuperNova 2000W G+. Both models feature single +12V rail designs, DC-to-DC switching, large 135 mm cooling fans, and most common electrical protections. The 2000W model even has an "Eco mode" toggle, which turns off the fan below a thermal/load threshold.

The SuperNova 850W G+ has enough juice and straws for a reasonably high-end build with up to four graphics cards, using eight 6+2 pin PCIe connectors. It also features two 4+4 pin EPS (handy in some of the newer HEDT platforms), twelve SATA power, three Molex, and a Berg. The SuperNova 2000W G+ is a different beast. You can power up to ten graphics cards over twenty 6+2 pin PCIe power connectors, in addition to two 4+4 pin EPS, sixteen SATA power, six Molex, and two Bergs. Both models provide flat, fully-modular cabling. EVGA expects to launch these within Q3-2018.

EVGA Unveils ROBOCLOCKER - Extreme, Semi-Closed Loop LN2 Cooling Solution

EVGA today announced a new development achieved by its engineering teams and in-house overclockers Vince "KINGPIN" Lucido and Illya "TiN" Tsemenko. The new solution, dubbed the ROBOCLOCKER, aims to allow for greater efficiency and ease-of-use in extreme cooling solutions using liquid nitrogen, by providing a basis for a semi-closed loop.

EVGA says this new extreme cooling solution allowed KINGPIN and TiN to break 5 new 3DMark World Records, thus paving the way for future World Record overclocking setups. You can watch a video demonstrating the ROBOCLOCKER in action after the break.

EVGA Announces Automatic Extension to New PSU Warranties For a Limited Time

EVGA today announced that they're starting a special, limited-time promotion on most of its PSU line-up. The offer, which lasts from tomorrow, June 5th, until December 31st 2018, will see the warranty period on specific families of EVGA PSUs automatically extended to up to 12 years of Limited Warranty. EVGA says this is a testament on their confidence in their own PSUs and their ability to withstand continuous usage throughout the years.

There are some tiers to this "automatic" warranty extension, however. Namely, different power supply families will see varying increases in their warranty periods - a way of acknowledging different longevity and quality of more expensive, more premium PSUs as well. As it stands, EVGA's -L Suffix graphics cards will see an upgrade to 4 Year Limited Warranty; -K Suffix PSUs to a 5 Year Limited Warranty; -V Suffix will be upgraded to a 7 Year Limited Warranty; -Y Suffix to 9 years; and finally, -X suffix will see the biggest increase to the maximum 12 years Limited Warranty. The increase amounts to 2 additional years of coverage period for each suffix of power supplies, but leaves out some PSUs in EVGA's catalog - namely -BR, -RX, and -RB suffixes. So pay good attention to what PSU you're buying if you're counting on getting an extended warranty for this critical component of your new - or revamped - build.

EVGA Says Goodbye to Driver DVDs

Jacob Freeman, Global Product Management Director at EVGA, has confirmed via a Tweet that future EVGA motherboards (H370 Stinger included) will no longer come with a driver DVD. Instead, the consumer will receive a sleek 8 GB USB 2.0 flash drive with all the necessary drivers and software. While some users might argue that it's good practice to get the latest drivers from the motherboard support page, you still need to install the network driver to access the internet after a fresh Windows installation. EVGA's decision is a well thought-out one as not all system builders include an optical drive in their builds or want to spend $15 on one just to install a driver. The included flash drive is re-writeable, so users can store other things on it if desired. Jacob commented that the cost of including a standard 8 GB USB 2.0 flash drive is about twenty times that of an old-school DVD. Nevertheless, EVGA motherboard prices will not increase to cover the cost.

EVGA Intros GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 Elite in Two New Color Variants

EVGA today introduced two new color variants of its GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 Elite Gaming graphics card. These include the Green (model: 11G-P4-6693-K4), and blue (11G-P4-6693-K3). EVGA colored the aluminium frame-type cooler shroud with anodized blue or green paint. That's all there is to these variants, which are priced on par with the regular model that has a silver shroud color. The factory-overclocked cards ship with clock speeds of 1556 MHz base, 1670 MHz GPU Boost, and an untouched 11 GHz (GDDR5X-effective) memory. Both new variants are priced the same, at USD $949.99, on EVGA web-store.

EVGA Removes Guest RMA Option - Register Your Card for RMA

EVGA in a potentially controversial move, removed the "Guest RMA" option from its aftersales support. The option allowed consumers to return their DOA or broken graphics cards back to EVGA for replacements, without having to register their products with EVGA (thereby giving their data to the company). Consumers now have to register their products, which entails creating an EVGA membership (volunteering information such as your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address). Only after creating an account, and registering your product, will you be able to file a standard RMA request with EVGA, a graphics card vendor which otherwise built a reputation of having the best product warranty, RMA, and upgrade policies in the industry.

EVGA Intros CLC 120 CL11 Liquid CPU Cooler

EVGA today introduced the CLC 120 CL11 all-in-one, closed-loop, liquid CPU cooler (model: 400-HY-CL11-V1). The cooler is based on an all new pump-block design that appears to be more cost-effective than the rounded-square pump-block EVGA uses on its original CLC series coolers. It lacks RGB LED lighting, but offers "improved coolant flow-rate, and higher surface-area for heat dissipation," according to EVGA. Taking advantage of the higher coolant pressure, EVGA deployed a slightly thicker radiator, which is 30 mm thick compared to the 27 mm thickness of the original's radiator.

This is a bi-metal liquid cooler, in that the block is made of copper, while the radiator is made of aluminium. The company still backs it with a 5-year warranty. The block supports only Intel sockets, including LGA2066, LGA2011(v3), and LGA115x. The other area of cost-cutting appears to be the included fan. It has a simpler impeller design than the one EVGA includes with the CLC 120, and only has 2/3rds its maximum airflow. The "Teflon nano bearing" makes way for simpler sleeve bearing; speeds range up to 1,800 RPM (the original spins up to 2,400 RPM), and maximum airflow is 58.87 CFM (against 74.87 CFM of the original). Available now, the EVGA CLC 120 CL11 is priced at USD $59.99, $30 cheaper than the original CLC 120.

Imitation is The Sincerest Form of Flattery... That Colorful Can Show EVGA?

As I was scouring the Internet and usual places for news stories to share on our beloved TechPowerUp!, I came across an unsuspecting link that triggered my "Oh no, they didn't" sensors. The story title, as posted on Reddit: "Chinese brand Colorful's "about" page is literally copied and pasted from EVGA's." I was torn, right there and then, by the "Oh no they didn't" reaction and a slight pinprick towards the "Of course they did" catharsis. And then I went to the "About" sites for both companies. I read, re-read, and re-re-read each company's "About Us" statement. The result was a warm, fuzzy feeling of incredulity and laughter.

Not only did Colorful copy and paste EVGA's About page, they... Introduced some grammatical and spelling errors as well. I believe I know how this might have happened: an intern at Colorful, tasked with thinking up a glorious, customer-centric "About Us" page, got tired of his company's policy of not allowing workers to play PUBG on the company computers and graphics cards (remember, Colorful dominates this PUBG market). As a way to get back at Colorful, he devised a devious way of getting revenge: subjecting Colorful to the Internet's scrutiny. His tools: copy, paste, and some strategically placed deletes and extra letters to add insult to injury. If I were a Colorful customer, I'd start claiming my "24/7 tech service, 90 day Step-Up program". Just don't go over to the headquarters mentioned in Colorful's "About Us" page. The EVGA employees you encounter there might not find your move very amusing. We, however, do. Oh yes we do.

EVGA Offers $1,000 for Your Old GeForce4 ACS, ACS2 Graphics Cards

EVGA is feeling both generous and nostalgic, and has announced a contest that's as welcome as it is original. Looking back on its roots as an innovative designer of cooling systems for graphics cards, allowing gamers everywhere to play their favorite games with the best temperatures and least noise possible, EVGA are looking for users that still keep their GeForce 4 ACS and ACS2-powered graphics cards. ACS and ACS 2 are effectively the precursors to EVGA's latest cooling innovations, even if these types of cooling designs are now the norm rather than the exception.

If you have a GeForce4 MX 440 or a GeForce4 4600 Ti, both launched way back in 2002, EVGA is asking that you submit your information to them, and the company will gladly pay you 1,000 EVGA bucks - its digital currency that is equivalent to $ in a 1:1 ratio, and would allow you to buy a great 1080 Ti from the EVGA store. Not such a bad deal for an old GeForce 4 graphics card, eh? Like Sonic would say, you "gotta go fast", though: the contest is available for a maximum of 3 ACS owners and 3 ACS2 owners.

EVGA Announces GeForce GTX 1070 Ti FTW Ultra Silent Graphics Card

EVGA debuted a new graphics card sub-brand, the FTW Ultra Silent, with a new custom-design GeForce GTX 1070 Ti graphics card, the EVGA GTX 1070 Ti Ultra Silent FTW. This 3-slot thick card has a chunkier aluminium fin-stack heatsink, and has a higher fan cutoff threshold than other cards from EVGA, such as the GTX 1070 Ti FTW2. So the card's fans stay off not just when the GPU is idling, but also when it's under load, until it reaches a higher temperature threshold.

As with every other GTX 1070 Ti card launched till date, the card ships with NVIDIA reference clock speeds of 1607 MHz core, 1683 MHz GPU Boost, and 8.00 GHz (GDDR5-effective) memory. It draws power from a pair of 8-pin PCIe power inputs, and display connectors include three DP and one each of HDMI and DVI. The card is sold out on EVGA's online store, where it was priced USD $499.

EVGA Z370 Micro Motherboard Starts Selling

EVGA's premium micro-ATX motherboard based on Intel Z370 chipset, the Z370 Micro, started selling at USD $179.99. The board was announced alongside the rest of the company's Z370 lineup, earlier this October.
