EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Hybrid Unleashed and Reviewed
EVGA has recently released a GeForce GTX 980 with a hybrid cooling solution. The company combined both air and water cooling to provide much better cooling solution to the graphics card, and to provide more headroom for overclocking. The company calls their latest creation the EVGA GeForce GTX 980 HYBRID. Check out more of its features and specifications below. There’s also a video review for your reference.
EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Hybrid Features
Introducing the EVGA GeForce GTX 980 HYBRID, an “all in one” water cooling solution that significantly lowers the GPU operating temperature. Best of all? The water cool cooler is completely self-contained, with an included 120mm radiator and fan. No filling, no custom tubing, no maintenance. Just plug in and play!
Of course, the GeForce GTX 980 HYBRID is also powered by the next-generation NVIDIA Maxwell architecture, giving you incredible performance, unmatched power efficiency, and cutting-edge features. Maxwell is the most advanced GPU architecture ever made, designed to be the engine of next-generation gaming. Inspired by light, it was designed to solve some of the most complex lighting and graphics challenges in visual computing.
Built on Maxwell – the EVGA GeForce GTX 980 HYBRID features the most advanced GPU architecture ever made, designed to be the engine of next-generation gaming.
Hydro Performance without the Hassle – All in one cooling solution that is completely self-contained. No filling, no custom tubing, no maintenance. Just plug and play.
Sleek Looks – Intelligent wiring system and sleeved tubing make this one sleek cooler without the messy wires.
Copper Base – Provide maximum heat transfer.
Virtually Silent Operation – Variable controlled fans allow dynamic fan speed based on GPU temperature, and water cooling efficiency means very low noise fans.
Built in Radiator and Fan – Built in 120mm radiator and fan helps dissipate the heat, keeping the GPU as cool as possible. Fan can also be swapped or customized.
Cooling for VRM and Memory – VRM and Memory cooling solution separated from GPU, allowing for lowest GPU temperatures, and efficient VRM and Memory cooling.
