EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 SC2 GAMING iCX - Back to top
"Watching how the iCX technology affected the GTX 1080 Superclocked 2 as it hummed along in The Division wasn’t it just insightful, it was fun—and I dig how EVGA managed to use RGB lighting for a practical purpose rather than simple aesthetics."
EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 FTW2 GAMING iCX - Back to top
"The new EVGA iCX Technology is impressive and will likely serve as a roadmap for future GPU development from competing AICs as well as reference designs coming from both NVIDIA and AMD."
"With it comes those 11 total patents, newly designed heatsink allowing for better integration to both the card and system, airflow penetration/efficiency of the cooler, thermally functional base and back plates, display LEDs for each zone, additional temperature sensors and MCUs, and an update to the Precision XOC software."
Editor's Choice Award
"The EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 FTW2 card with iCX we tested is our favorite GTX 1080 yet."
"As for designing a new cooler that’s got unique functionality, we’ll say job well done to EVGA. The fuse, cooling apparatus, and thermistors are exactly what we want to see on video cards moving forward."
"The temperatures you saw were all with the factory fan curve and very very respectable, and even with a 2088 overclock the you didnt see any additional heat from the VRM because the VRM fan is speeding up to keep that temp down."
"EVGAs new iCX Technology is a huge step in the right direction, I think all the thought and engineering that went into this are all good concepts and good ideas that will drive the industry forward as a whole."
"EVGA did have some FLIR cameras there for actual visual reference of thermal load, they had an FTW card next to an FTW2 card running the same frequency, same test, and you could see visually the FTW2 cards are staying cooler."
"The energy-efficient nature of the 10-series GPUs means that, sometimes, the hottest-running components are memory and power regulation. So having some reporting on them makes implicit sense."
EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 GAMING - Back to top
"As much as we love the biggest, baddest graphics cards around here, there's something about high-performance, small form factor products that's just as cool. The 6GB EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming that we tested is a $249 graphics card with enough muscle to churn through most games at 1440P or lower resolutions, in a form factor and power envelope fit for a mini-ITX gaming build"

EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 SSC GAMING ACX 3.0 - Back to top
"Overall, for $129, I appreciate what the EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 SSC offers for someone who wants to give their PC a little kick to enjoy many of the best and most popular games. I also like that it doesn’t require any connection to the power supply, making it very easy to plug in and start playing for someone who may not be the most comfortable with the insides of a computer. It’s a wonderful starter card to feed the Overwatch addiction or manage the backlog of games from the recent Steam sale."
