EVGA Launches GeForce GTX 980 Ti FTW ACX 2.0+

After having released the fastest GTX 980 Ti with their K|NGP|N edition, EVGA introduced the GeForce GTX 980 Ti FTW to take the second place. The EVGA GTX 980 Ti FTW is using Nvidia’s top-end consumer chips to deliver an amazing result when coupled with EVGA’s technologies.

The card is powered by two 8-Pin power inputs and has a 8+2 phase power design as well as the dual BIOS feature for two settings or a backup. EVGA equipped this card with their acclaimed ACX 2.0+ cooling technology and also added a good-looking backplate that helps with the cards structural strength as well as cooling. Users of this card will get 2816 NVIDIA CUDA Cores at their disposal next to the 6GB GDDR5 memory, more than enough for most tasks.

The EVGA ACX 2.0+ cooling technology comes with a memory MOSFET Cooling Plate (MMCP) that can reduce the MOSFET temperatures up to 13%, and it also has optimised Straight Heat Pipes (SHP) that additionally reduce GPU temperature by 5 degrees. One of the best features is the silent mode where the fans won’t spin up until they’re actually needed, providing you with a 0dB operation. It also uses optimised swept fan blades, double ball bearings and an extreme low power motor that delivers more air flow with less power.

Key Features:

  • Fastest EVGA GTX 980 Ti Next to K|NGP|N and Classified – 1291MHz Boost Clock with room for more.

EVGA Celebrates Spring With Free Backplate for GTX 970 Cards

Spring is in the air, at least according to the calendar, and EVGA is celebrating this with a bonus backplate when purchasing an EVGA GeForce GTX 970 SC or SSC card. I don’t know how they made the connection from spring to backplate, but I’m certainly not going to argue with free stuff.

The two cards that come with a free backplate are the EVGA GeForce GTX 970 SSC ACX 2.0+ (04G-P4-3975-KR) and EVGA GeForce GTX 970 SC ACX 2.0 (04G-P4-2974-KR) graphics cards, and there are a few conditions to get the free backplate. The cards have to be purchased at EVGA’s online store or participating resellers: Micro Center, NewEgg, NCIX, Alternate, and Scan Computers. The offer is valid from the 17th april and ends on the 30th April 2015.

The backplates will automatically be added to your purchase, so there is no trouble with filling out forms in order to get it later. You have to install it to the card yourself, but that’s very easy and instructions will be included. A backplate doesn’t just act as a backbone to your graphics card by boosting rigidity and extra support for the PCB, it also aids in protecting critical components and helps to reduce the GPU temperature. Oh, and it also looks pretty sweet.

EVGA Getting Ready with GTX 980 Classified and Hydro Copper Cards

EVGA is going all out with the new Nvidia series of cards, and are now getting ready to release their 5th and 6th GTX 980 card. We’ve already seen the reference version as well as the one with the new ACX 2.0 cooler, both in normal and Superclocked versions. While these cards already impressed in benchmarks, the next ones will do so even more; I think it will be some time before these cards are forgotten.

The first new card is the EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Classified. The GPU of course has 2048 CUDA cores but it runs with a 1291 MHz base clock and has a boost all the way up to 1405 MHz; the classified version still uses 4 GB memory that runs on the given 256-bit interface. It’s clocked at 7010 MHz with a speed of 0.28 ns and a bandwidth of 224.3 GB/s. The card supports up to 4-way SLI and it’s also worth mentioning that the card features a triple BIOS.

The design is very simple, yet beautiful; for the most part it’s just black, but with some slight red accents around the company and brand logo. The cooler is the ACX 2.0 with optimized and swept fan blades, double ball bearings and an extreme low power motor. It delivers more airflow with less power draw than its predecessor, thus unlocking additional power for the GPU.

If you liked the ACX 1.0 cooler, you’ll love this one, it runs 26% cooler, 36% quieter, draws 250% less power and has a 400% longer lifespan; that’s improvement right there!

The second card is the GeForce GTX 980 Hydro Copper, a water cooling ready version of the new flagship. The cooler is created by EK and has a beautiful black finish with the EVGA logo cut out. EVGA wants to tease us some more and still keep the cards tight when it comes to clocks speeds; the card is already rumoured to break several records, so expect it to be impressive.
