The guys from HotHardware were able to get their hands on the new EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Superclocked ACX 3.0 Edition. The cooler shroud looks very different compared to the previous GTX 900 series. The new design looks more rugged, or should I say badass looking compared to the previous designs. A little bit more details below.
EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 SC ACX 3.0 Edition
The new EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Superclocked ACX 3.0 edition features a fresh, new and striking look. It features the company’s ACX 3.0 cooling solution but obviously they overhauled the front shroud design, including the back plate.
HotHardware didn’t reveal its detailed specs of the graphics card yet, but you can see from the photos that it features a single 8-pin power connector. Not sure if this will come with a (very) high factory overclock settings, probably not. However, they did mention that the card runs around 70 to 80 degrees Celsius under load.
The site also showed a few benchmarks, and based on the initial benchmark results, the EVGA GTX 1080 SC ACX 3.0 is just on par, with a very slight edge, against the GTX 1080 Founders Edition. This could mean that the GTX 1080 SC comes with a rather conservative factory (over)clock GPU settings.
Expect more details will be revealed soon, more or less by next week during Computex 2016.
