EVGA is no stranger to the enthusiast, as the company has become synonymous with high-end, incredibly well-built products - especially video cards. The company has some of the best-looking video cards, which also happen to perform even better.


There are plenty of gamers out there who have waited for EVGA to release their GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 cards, and man, they really haven't disappointed with the GTX 1080 FTW. Their latest range has seen the deployment of the GeForce GTX 1080 FTW card, with EVGA's take on NVIDIA's new high-end video card adding some more performance, superior cooling, and more power delivery.

EVGA has made quite a few changes to its ACX cooler, with the new ACX 3.0 cooler keeping the GP104 and its 8GB of GDDR5X nice and cool - all while it's styled beautifully, with some RBG, LED to boot. I'm not usually a fan of RGB LEDs on a video card, but EVGA has gone with a more minimal use on the lights - so it adds to the look of the card, without making it stand out and make me feel like I'm going to have a seizure, or grab out the glow sticks and start dancing with my sunglasses on.

Finally, while NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition was fast, we knew the AIB partners would have some exciting third-party coolers and custom PCB-based GeForce GTX 1080s that would be better products. With EVGA's new cooling technology, expertise in building high-end enthusiast video cards, and the pre-overclocked settings with some more OC headroom included - will it outperform the GTX 1080 Founders Edition and be the card we hope it is? Let's find out.

Pricing & Availability

If there's one thing that's hurting the sales of the GeForce GTX 1080 cards right now, it's the inflated price, with EVGA being caught in the middle of it. At the time of writing, EVGA's new GeForce GTX 1080 FTW GAMING ACX 3.0 card was listed on Amazon for $989.95, with just one of them left in stock. The availability should improve in the coming weeks, too.

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
