What customers say about "Key Specs"
EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC Black Edition Gaming iCX GDDR5X Graphics Card
  • This GPU is great - it runs quietly, and has a nice solid, quality feel to it. I haven't tried overclocking or anything - not really bothered as it runs so fast anyway.
  • Extremely fast bit of kit. Came well packages and protected and worked as expected with no issues.
  • I recommend for gaming! Very fast GPU!
  • Great card for gaming PCs. Delivery arrived 2 days early. Runs very smoothly
EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti FTW3 GAMING
  • It runs slightly faster at stock, has faster memory to which negates the slightly higher ROP count and cache on the TXP which results in effectively similar performance.
  • This GPU is great - it runs quietly, and has a nice solid, quality feel to it. I haven't tried overclocking or anything - not really bothered as it runs so fast anyway.
  • Would've loved if it was cheaper, but it's a great card.
  • If you're looking to get a 1080 Ti and you have good airflow, this card is for you.

What customers say about "Features"
EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC Black Edition Gaming iCX GDDR5X Graphics Card
  • Very good for gaming, design wise, features and customer service are top notch! Really like this
  • This card is amazing but please look at case air flow before buying .
  • It is expensive but EVGA have addressed previous over heating problems & the software gives you complete control over the three fans.
  • I love the design and the three fan system keeps it nice and cool.
  • I would be happy to live with this should the fans quickly move on from this RPM but, typically, this is the fastest they need to run to keep respectable temperatures using the default fan curve.
EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti FTW3 GAMING
  • This Card has been OC'd to 2035 on the Core Clock and 1460 for Memory. No voltage has been added.
  • Depending on your use the 1080 will do you just fine, or indeed a 1070. So whats the Ti good for, high refresh rate monitors and beyond 1080p monitors, and of course smashing VR.
  • I love the design and the three fan system keeps it nice and cool.
  • This card lives up to the hype, in terms of performance. It's software, while not refined, is solid for what it is.
  • Cool but driver not supporting well. aoc monitor with issued it.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC Black Edition Gaming iCX GDDR5X Graphics Card
  • I also run an Oculus rift off the D HDMI port on the card. Previously I had used a 1060 and the VR software ran ok but could be a bit glitchy - not so with this card.
  • The card is simply resting in a plastic Clamshell with no anti-static bag so do not be alarmed if you do not see one, but all the ports and connectors are covered with black rubber to keep dust out.
  • I have three 24 inch monitors all running the same resolution and with the main monitor (1) in the middle, with monitor 2 on the left and monitor 3 on the right. All three monitors are running from the display port connectors with a DVI active adaptor on each one.
  • In terms of connectivity, Nvidia have elected to move a different route and remove the DVI adaptor. The rationale is if you're using this sort of card, you panel is likely feed via HDMI or Displayport, but to be fair they have included an adaptor.
EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti FTW3 GAMING
  • The rationale is if you're using this sort of card, you panel is likely feed via HDMI or Displayport, but to be fair they have included an adaptor.
  • They all now run at 1920x1080 so I have loads of workspace. I also run an Oculus rift off the D HDMI port on the card
  • A new addition however is in the form of a Displayport to DVI adaptor which brings us on to the next aspect.
  • At first it did not recognise all of my monitors correctly.
