The card will make its entry into the market in upcoming weeks. This card is for the targeted players so before the launch EVGA test it many times on higher frequencies.

In addition the card is also featuring more than four RGB colors, lighting in order to give it a good look and also you can match it with your build. The colors are adjustable by the user, but for me they are quite cool and light not too bright. The card uses aluminum radiator, more than 6-8 copper heat pipes and two large PWM fans in order to cool down the memory chips and the power section is cooled further, flat heat sink. Much of the central heatsink layout can be seen through the acrylic cut outs on the shroud.
The card has also a backplate on which there are lots of cut outs for voltage points. One thing which is coming as a shocker is the power delivery as you must have two 8-Pin connectors and a single 6-Pin connector in order to power this beast.
