EVGA GTX 1080 CLASSIFIED, HYBRID and FTW spotted

EVGA GTX 1080 FTW

For the Win! The GTX 1080 FTW features custom PCB with two eight-pin power connectors and 10+2 phase power design. It should theoretically provide much better overclocking than Founder Edition, if not the power limit..

Either way, the GTX 1080 FTW is equipped with two BIOSes, so there’s some room for experiments.

The GTX 1080 CLASSIFIED is definitely one of the flagship Pascal cards (alongside MSI Lightning, ZOTAC PGF). It also features dual 8-pin power connectors, but also V-check points and even more powerful PCB with 14+3 phase power design. According to TechReport, GTX 1080 ‘CLASSY’ features three BIOS chips.

This strange thing mounted on the right side is called EVGA Power Link. It basically allows you to route PEG cables to the side,  allowing cleaner cable management. You can find more pictures of this thing here.

EVGA GTX 1080 HYBRID

The Hybrid. I’m not sure why people seem to be more interested in this card rather than FTW or Classy. It should definitely provide more efficient and quieter cooling solution than ACX 3.0, but it takes extra space for radiator. Not much has been officially said about this card yet, but from our short investigation this card should feature the same PCB as FTW edition.

EVGA HB SLI BRIDGE

Not only NVIDIA has its own high-bandwidth SLI bridges, but also EVGA and MSI. EVGA has three bridges, all for 2-way SLI, but for different heights.
