Getting a reference graphics card is not everyone’s game. Where with the launch of GTX 1080 Ti we have been patiently waiting for a graphics card. That will blow away the performance of the reference GTX 1080 Ti, while staying relatively cooler. Meet the EVGA GTX 1080 Ti SC2 graphics card, a similarly priced more powerful GPU.

The main different that you will found on the EVGA GTX 1080 Ti SC2 is in the frequencies. Where the base and boost clocks on the EVGA GTX 1080 Ti SC2 are relatively higher than the GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition. Which comes at in around 1556MHz base and 1670MHz boost clock. Which can be overclocked further as well. But the EVGA GTX 1080 Ti SC2 can go as high as 1850MHz, depending on the headroom.

The EVGA GTX 1080 Ti SC2 also comes with their famous ICX cooling technology. Which basically means that the EVGA GTX 1080 Ti SC2 have a total of 9 sensors. Which are placed on the PCB and are responsible for monitoring thermals. Where all the monitoring data is used to individually cool different components of the graphics card.

EVGA also provides their Precision XOC software. That will help its users take a look at each of those nine sensors and its temperatures. While there are also three RGB lights on top of the graphics card. Which change their colors depending on the temperature. These three RGB lights are assigned to show temperatures of GPU, PWMs and memory on the graphics card.

The EVGA GTX 1080 Ti SC2 is a great graphics card for its money. Where if you are working with a big PC case. Then we would recommend going for the EVGA GTX 1080 Ti SC2 because of its cooler design. Because the blower style cooler on the GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition, only works better in mini PC cases.
