After the official launch of the new video card on Feb.28 by Nvidia, many manufacturers immediately started presenting their “alternative solutions”, which usually are only some rebadging and rebranding of the official card, and sometimes a new cooler on top of it.
Not many manufacturers can, in fact, present a completely new PCB using the chip as baseline, creating thus a custom design VGA. Colorful is one of those, and they announced some custom cards for the newest gaming chip from Nvidia soon.
Back to the “Founders Edition” announced by Colorful, the specs are pretty basic and the same as Nvidia’s own:
||GTX 1080 Ti|
|GPU Boost Clock
||3 x DisplayPort, HDMI 2.0b|
|Recommended Power Supply
||8-pin + 6-pin|
|SLI||Yes – SLI HB supported|
|Dimensions||4.376″ x 10.5″|
Colorful is not the only manufacturer announcing their version of the card, obviously. Inno3D presented 2 new cards with their proprietary “iChill” coolers and EVGA boasted the same card with the iCX Cooling Technology.
Talking of price, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti from Colorful will be $700.
