EVGA has unveiled its latest and greatest graphics card called the GTX 1080 Ti K|NGP|N Hydro Copper. As its name implies, this graphics card is indeed “special” because it was fine-tuned by well-known, legendary overclocker, Vince “K|NGP|N” Lucido. Knowing this, consumers can expect the GTX 1080 Ti K|NGP|N Hydro Copper to come with premium internal components.
Now before we delve deep into the specifications of the GTX 1080 Ti K|NGP|N Hydro Copper, it’s worth mentioning that this graphics card is by no means meant for casual gamers. Yes, you can use it for gaming, but it wouldn’t be financially wise to do so; there are plenty of other alternatives. Instead, it is aimed at hardcore overclockers and PC enthusiasts who want to push the Pascal GP102 GPU to its absolute limit.
That aside, when it comes to specifications, the EVGA GTX 1080 Ti K|NGP|N Hydro Copper features clock speeds of 1582MHz (base) and 1695MHz (boost). Knowing how this graphics card is meant primarily for rigorous overclocking, it wouldn’t be surprising to see its clock speeds being pushed significantly higher (at least 2025MHz according to EVGA). Meanwhile, memory clock speed is kept at a cool 11008MHz.
Oddly, the capabilities of this graphics card isn’t mirrored onto its design. The GTX 1080 Ti K|NGP|N Hydro Copper is equipped with an all-black water block (full-length) as well as a full cover black backplate. According to EVGA, its flagship graphics card does feature nine thermal sensors and various voltage measurement components – all of which are perfect for hardcore overclockers.
Regardless, the GTX 1080 Ti K|NGP|N Hydro Copper has already been made available on EVGA’s official website (limited stocks). It is handsomely priced at US$1,249 (about RM5,135).
