EVGA goes triple-fan with its GTX 1080 Ti FTW3 card

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.

    Classsy looking cooler. At least [i<]someone[/i<] thinks that not everyone wants a garish, RGBLED rainbow robotic dong in their PC's side window.

    I want to get this but I fear volta is around the corner.

      Srsly. I’d buy this. But why would I? When the rumors are whispering of volta this year, like you say.

        Rumors are also whispering of a pascal refresh that will see Vrams improved, better clocks and efficiency, and sundry other small changes.

    That looks a lot nicer than EVGA’s current “chicken wire” cooler motif (IMHO).

      I’m sure EVGA paid Louis Vuitton a small fortune for that Neo Steamer Trunk design, and you called it ‘chicken wire’!

    Hopefully they didn’t forget about beefing up the VRM cooling this time… :-/
