EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti FTW3: First-look and Installation
The EVGA 1080 Ti FTW3 features a frilled grey design which facilitates airflow as well as 3 EVGA labelled black fans. The work that has gone into making sure this is a high quality product is immediately apparent from the minute you take it out of the box. The heatsink and the heatpipes are clearly visible and add to the visual aesthetic of the card.
The GPU itself comes with pretty much everything covered in stickers that its brand new owner would love to peel off. All ports and connectors are covered with shields and will require to be taken off before installation. Keep something on and you might end up with warped plastic stuck to your card.
The EVGA GTX 1080 Ti FTW3 GAMING itself is a very sexy looking thing and is definitely a looker. Perhaps our favorite feature is the entire nomenclature written in clear bold NVIDIA font across the side, which will be visible from any transparent side panel. The card has a single 1x HDMI cable, 3x DisplayPorts and 1x DVI port.
We are using an NZXT H440 New Edition case for our testing and the card fit snugly without any hassle and just as promised, occupies only two slots. RGB fans will be pleased to know that the card features a fully configurable RGB LED support (accessible from within the EVGA Precision XOC tool) as well as 3 tach leds that are designed to give a visual readout of important stats of the graphics card. The card fits pretty well with our Kraken and HUE+ setup.
