EVGA offers seven different takes on Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card. All the non-Founders Edition models sport the company's iCX design with multiple temperature sensors, microcontrollers, and asynchronous fans. The iCX setup is fun stuff for tweakers, but EVGA's latest GeForce GTX 1080 Ti K|NGP|N Edition (Kingpin from here forward) takes the monitoring capabilities of all those sensors and adds a host of overclocking-specific features, including a unique all-copper heatsink and a connector for EVGA's EVBOT overclocking automation tool. The result is a card guaranteed to achieve a core boost clock of at least 2025 MHz.
EVGA says the Kingpin's PCB is unique and has additional copper content thanks to an edge-plating process. The card has apparently been thought with SLI configurations in mind since the three-fan cooler is a standard dual-slot design, unlike many other offerings. If the cooler is stripped off and replaced with a waterblock, the Kingpin can fit in a single-slot location.
EVGA isn't ready to talk about prices or street dates just yet, but based on the pricing of the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Kingpin Edition, the GTX 1080 Ti version will bear a significant premium when compared to other similar graphics cards.
