Previews of aftermarket GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards seems to be the hot topic today. Never one to be outdone, EVGA took to Twitter to tease its own GTX 1080 Ti FTW3. This board wears a new triple-fan iCX cooler, and it's probably laden with more sensors and microcontrollers than an amateur robotics project.
EVGA didn't supply much in the way of details beyond this pic, but if we had to guess, the FTW3 bears at least nine different temperature sensors on top of the unit baked into the GP102 chip. Those sensors will probably help to control the trio of presumably asychronously-spinning fans. We would imagine the FTW3's boost clocks will be at least a little faster than the 1600 MHz rate used in the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founder's Edition.
We've been impressed with what we've seen from EVGA's GeForce GTX 1070 SC2 graphics card with the standard two-fan iCX cooler, so we can only imagine the performance of the whole-hog GTX 1080 Ti wearing an even bigger version. Hopefully we won't have too long to wait to find out.
