    sometimes cutting your GPU load temperatures in half
    That's such a nonsense description. Half the temperature?! On what scale? Sure it's quick and well cooled, but sometimes the marketing department need to do some research first.

    I do like EVGA cards, and after having lived with a rather toasty EVGA 980Ti for a while, this card is at the top of my upgrade list.

    Hopefully they get dates and prices out soon. And a pair of demo units in the post

    Personally I love the 'GPU Cooling Performance' chart with absolutely no indication what the numbers refer to. Marketing bulls**t at its finest...

    Erm. Yeah. But Celcius is not a linear measurement of temperature or energy state, so it cannot be 'halved' by taking 0 as the baseline.

    Indeed, under what loads? What benchmarks? What ambient temps etc etc etc.... just pure marketing.

    I think the only meaningful scale is "Difference between card and room temperature." That would be independent of measurement system.

    Re: EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 Gaming Hybrid iCX introduced

    6/8pin combination, think I've found my FE replacement!

    Don't get me wrong, I absolutely lucked out, because of a well binned part my card boosts to 1900mhz+ (1912mhz is the highest I've seen it go), but damn is that fan bloody awful!

    I'm absolutely willing to lose a bit of performance if it means a quieter PC again - I used to run SLI, and I've never had as much noise as I do with this. I recently replaced all my system fans with ULV Noctuas too, but that card, when ramped up, it sounds literally like a handheld hoover, I can hear it over the sound coming from the games, which I never experienced before.

    I dunno I find it easier to understand than if they started being technical. They mean in a lot of cases this card will show half the number an FE model would show at certain points.

    I'm obviously missing something because that chart says to me that a standard reference cooler hits 80 degrees under load whereas the water cooler only hits 40 degrees under load; ie half the temperature.

    In purely scientific terms we should use Kelvin. So 80c = 353K, and 40c = 313K. So not half the temperature in a very strict and literal sense.
    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.

    I really really hate this argument. Every time something about temperature comes up, folks have to go "well, ACKtually, we should be talking about deltas, or absolutes, as is the proper scientific way" it's not a scientific paper, it's release info made to be understandable by the masses.

    I feel it's a terrible shame that Carol doesn't give the BBC weather every morning in Kelvins. It's completely meaningless that she uses this pointless Celsius measurement.

    Meanwhile, us people in the real world are happy with our incorrect notion that a watercooled GPU under load is half as hot as one with a reference cooler under the same load.
