We Get Hands-on With EVGA 2080 Ti Kingpin
Peter Donnell / 11 months ago
When it comes to a new graphics card generation, there’s always one card the enthusiast market is keen to see. The EVGA Kingpin is quite often the best any generation of cards has to offer. Huge factory overclocks, with more overclocking headroom on top. A mighty custom cooling solution, often with an AIO secondary cooler, and much more.
The new EVGa RTX 2080 Ti Kingpin Edition was on show at CES 2019, and we saw it in person. It’s a beast of a card too, even if it’s not the prettiest card ever, it’s tuned for performance.
It features a massive internal copper heatsink design, which gives it impressive cooling performance with its single fan design. However, that does also mean it’s exceptionally heavy too.
Doing worry though, most of that is simply for the VRM on the card. The actually GPU core is cooled on its own by a 120mm AIO cooler that comes pre-fitted to the card.
Why the two cooler design? Well, the VRM is sure to get hot on their own as its capable of over 500W! With a triple 8-pin PSU setup, it is thirsty for power. The GPU core cooled separately means heat isn’t shared between the coolers.
The card features a custom OLED side panel, showing temperatures, clocks, voltages, and more.
Prices and release date are not available yet. However, awfully expensive and fairly soon would be calling the obvious.
