EVGA GTX 1080 Ti Kingpin Video Card Confirmed Coming Soon

Ever since NVIDIA announced the GTX 1080 Ti, EVGA fans have been asking about whether there will be a GTX 1080 Ti KINGPIN edition available. There has been no word of it until a few days ago when a 1st place record appeared on the Superposition benchmark. The record holder is none other than Vince “K|ngP|n” Lucido himself, who works for EVGA so many took this as a hint that a new GTX 1080 Ti KINGPIN edition is definitely coming.

That “probably” became a “definitely” yesterday when Vince Lucido changed his Facebook profile photo to the image above, showing a custom PCB with the K|NGP|N logo printed on it. It was accompanied with the words “Almost time”.

EVGA KINGPIN video cards is the company’s top of the line overclocking line of video cards. It goes directly head-to-head with the likes of the GALAX Hall of Fame series with powerful VRMs and fully customized to take the abuse of LN2 cooling. The last time EVGA released a KINGPIN edition video card was in 2015 with the 980Ti KINGPIN. It featured a 14+3 phase power design capable of 600A current delivery. It was also offered with pre-binned GPU options starting at 72% ASIC to 80%+ ASIC.

Pricing and Availability?


EVGA has not announced pricing and availability yet. Obviously, the GTX 1080 Ti KINGPIN Edition carries a premium price over the regular GTX 1080 Ti, even over the current EVGA flagship GTX 1080 Ti FTW3. EVGA also offers KINGPIN cards with 80%+ ASIC at much higher pricing than those with 72% ASIC. With the 980Ti KINGPIN, the 72%+ ASIC cost $849 USD while the 80%+ version cost upward of $1049 USD. Expect to pay a similar premium with the GTX 1080 Ti version as well, approaching the GTX TITAN Xp pricing level.
