At the Computex 2015 trade-show, EVGA is showing its new graphics card containing all possibilities to become the largest performing GeForce GTX 980 Ti-based solution in the world. The graphics adapter is created to provide optimum overclocking potential and will also offer quite high clock-rates out-of-the-box, while it would be available later on this year. However, terrific performance will come at a great price.

The EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti Classified KINGPIN graphics card is constructed on a custom 12-layer printed circuit board with digital voltage regulation module offering 14+3 power phase design. Due to improved PLL circuitry, which enhanced GPU power plane along with different voltage regulation enhancements, the Kingpin Edition of EVGA’s GeForce GTX 980 Ti Classified graphics card will offer matchless overclocking potential, much like its predecessors.



The new graphics board features three power inputs ( 8pin + 8pin + 6pin ) along with a really high quality voltage regulation module, that can use around 450W of power and around 600A current to provide fantastic overclock ability. The graphics adapter can be best with EVGA’s Evbot device that can help to adjust voltages of GPU and memory on the fly. The board actually has a particular circuitry that avoids GDDR5 memory from freezing when the card is cooled-down by utilizing liquid nitrogen.

The EVGA GTX 980 Ti Classified KINGPIN utilizes a new version of EVGA’s ACX 2 .0+ cooler with copper heat pipes and radiators. The decision is to utilize copper radiators is a strange one , bearing in mind the fact that although copper rapidly absorbs heat, it may not immediately dissipate it, unlike aluminium, which dissipates heat quickly. Almost all high-end coolers utilize a combination of copper as well as aluminium.



Vince “KINGPIN” Lucido, an outstanding extreme overclocker, probably took part in the development of the EVGA GTX 980 Ti Classified KINGPIN graphics board. Although it would not appear that the novelty has something which was unavailable on previous-generation Kingpin Edition products, a number of minor refinements could help to far enhance overclock ability of the GPU.

Mr. Vince Lucido and other great overclockers have been able to force GeForce GTX 780 Ti ( GK110 ) and GeForce GTX 980 ( GM204 ) graphics processors to more than 2GHz on previous-generation Kingpin Edition graphics cards. It is usually seriously likely that the new will give you likewise great overclocking potential.

Currently EVGA is only showing the graphics card at Computex as well as does not uncover any extra information regarding it. Exact clock-rates of the board are not known, yet since Classified KINGPIN is EVGA’s top-of-the-range series, assume them to be very high . The fact is that, the EVGA GTX 980 Ti Classified KINGPIN may be even much faster than Nvidia’s flagship GeForce GTX Titan X graphics adapter as a result of huge factory overclock. Pricing of the new graphics card can also be similar to that of the Titan X, but yes much cheaper.
