We anticipate this in the news and finally it has been fulfilled a little earlier than expected, since the assembler EVGA has officially announced the new EVGA GTX 1080 Ti KINGPIN two days before the official start of Computex this year.
This graphics card uses the trimmed GP102 core, which leaves the following base specifications:
- 3,584 shaders.
- 224 units of texture.
- 88 raster units.
- 352-bit bus.
- 11 GB of GDDR5.
What sets it apart from other solutions within the same range is that the EVGA GTX 1080 Ti KINGPIN has been designed with overclocking in mind, and thanks to it, EVGA dares to guarantee that it can directly upload to 2.025 MHz on the GPU. This means that just remove it from the box we can put it at that frequency without problem.
Frankly, it’s impressive, as a GTX 1080 TI Founders Edition works at 1,480 MHz in normal mode and reaches 1,582 MHz in turbo mode. Although, we do not have concrete data we can anticipate that those almost 500 MHz more frequency will be noticed much in the final performance, and also in the consumption of the card.
As for the quality of construction there are no surprises. We found a dissipation system based on a copper radiator and triple fan that comes backed by an inner metal plate and a back plate, but also is ready to work as a monoslot solution with liquid cooling.
We do not have information on the price of EVGA GTX 1080 Ti KINGPIN but we are almost totally convinced that it will end up costing more than a thousand dollars. It will be available from the month of July.
