evga 1080 sc review

If you’re in the market for a high-end graphics card but you don’t want to pay NVIDIA’s exorbitant price premium for their flagship GTX 1080 Founders Edition then EVGA has got you covered. This version of their Classified Gaming ACX 3.0 model features a radical new cooler that not only looks good but they claim it allows the card to run up to 10% cooler and 13% quieter than NVIDIA’s reference design.

The Classified Gaming ACX 3.0 is a dual-slot card that uses EVGA’s award-winning ACX 3.0 cooler (also found on the FTW Gaming and SC Gaming models). It features a 14 phase power design, dual BIOS, an adjustable RGB LED logo, and a pair of free 8-pin power connectors. It’s tied for the heaviest overclocks offered by EVGA with their other FTW and SC Gaming cards and it has a base clock of 1,607 MHz and a boost clock of 1,733 MHz.

This is a great card that can handle everything you throw at it up to and including 4K PC gaming. It runs quiet and cool and can be overclocked further with EVGA’s Precision XOC software. It also comes with a warranty that’s one of the best in the business. For these reasons and more we highly recommend this card.
