EVGA GTX 1080 SC overview

  • 1Description

Based on NVIDIA's Pascal architecture and featuring a factory overclocked core, the EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 SC GAMING Graphics Card provides major improvements in performance, memory bandwidth, and power efficiency over its predecessor, the high-performance Maxwell architecture. It also introduces innovative graphics features and technologies that redefine the computer as the platform for playing AAA games and taking full advantage of virtual reality via NVIDIA VRWorks.

The front panel of the card features a variety of outputs. There are three DisplayPort 1.4 outputs in addition to an HDMI 2.0b output and a DVI-D Dual-Link output. The GTX 1080 is not just about high-resolution gaming. Computationally intensive programs can utilize the GPU's 2560 cores to accelerate tasks using CUDA or other APIs.

For cooling, EVGA implemented ACX 3.0 cooling technology. It has more heatpipes and a larger copper contact area for cooler operation as well as optimized fan curve for even quieter gaming. The dual fans feature optimized swept fan blades, double ball bearings, and an extreme low power motor, delivering more air flow with less power and unlocking additional power for the GPU.

VRWorks Graphics includes a simultaneous multi-projection capability that renders natively to the unique dimensions of VR displays instead of traditional 2D monitors. It also renders geometry for the left and right eyes simultaneously in a single pass.

VRWorks Audio uses the NVIDIA OptiX ray-tracing engine to trace the path of sounds across an environment in real-time, fully reflecting the size, shape, and material of the virtual world.

NVIDIA PhysX for VR detects when a hand controller interacts with a virtual object, and enables the game engine to provide a physically accurate visual and haptic response. It also models the physical behavior of the virtual world around the user so that all interactions -- whether an explosion or a hand splashing through water -- behave as if in the real world.
With Ansel, gamers can compose the gameplay shots they want, pointing the camera in any direction and from any vantage point within a gaming world. They can capture screenshots at up to 32 times the screen resolution, and then zoom in where they choose without losing fidelity. With photo-filters, they can add effects in real-time before taking the shot. And they can capture 360-degree stereo photospheres for viewing in a VR headset or Google Cardboard.
SLI Ready
With a compatible motherboard and a connecting bracket, two or more NVIDIA GPUs of the same model can combine processing power using NVIDIA's Scalable Link Interface (SLI). How the cards work together can be customized to suit your preferences. Alternate frame rendering has each alternating card prepare the next frame, essentially multiplying the capabilities of a single card's maximum capable frame rate output. Each card in the configuration can also be used to improve anti-aliasing by being able to process an image in parallel with the other cards before filtering out jagged edges.

NVIDIA's SLI HB bridge doubles the available transfer bandwidth compared to the NVIDIA Maxwell architecture. Delivering smooth gameplay, it's an effective way to enjoy surround gaming and it's only compatible with the GeForce GTX 1080 graphics cards.

Note: The benefits of SLI will vary based on component configuration.
NVIDIA's parallel computing platform which enables an increase in computing performance by harnessing the parallel nature of GPU processing. CUDA compatible applications can assign intensive parallel computing tasks, such as real-time video rendering, to the GPU to process, freeing up the computer's CPU to run other tasks.
G-SYNC Ready
When used with a monitor that has G-SYNC hardware installed, the monitor's refresh rate will sync and lock with the graphics card's output frame rate. Establishing this sync removes tearing and stuttering which can result from conventional fixed screen refresh rates, especially important for gaming in stereoscopic 3D. An additional benefit of G-SYNC is reduced lag so gamers will benefit from the improved command response time as well.
NVIDIA GPU Boost 3.0
Boosts the card's clock speed in real-time based on the target temperature. If the card is running below the set target temperature, GPU Boost 3.0 will increase the clock speed to improve performance. The target temperature can be reset depending on your preference so you can have the card run more quietly for everyday tasks and older games, and run at full tilt during intense high-resolution gaming sequences.

    EVGA GTX 1080 SC reviews

    GeForce GTX 1080 SC GAMING Graphics Card is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 42.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most powerful graphics card I have ever owned. I had never bought a top of the line graphics card (for the time) before. But with my recent build I stepped up to a 3440x1440 100hz monitor so I knew I needed something that would be able to push the pixels. I am more than happy with this card: pushes DOOM at Ultra everything at 100fps, runs pretty cool considering, and is quite quiet. I am 100% happy with this card.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A hiccup but works great I bought this from B&H in late 2016 since they had the best price at the time. It was shipped to me in northern Michigan. I had been planning all year to get this for my new build (EVGA Classified K mobo, i7 6700k CPU, 64G Corsair ram, Samsung 256G M2 drive and Samsung 1 TB SSD drive, Windows 10). It boots up in 50 seconds and come out of sleep in 20. It works great. I use it mainly to game and do some home video work. I did have a problem with it going full power to the fans and then getting a black screen. It's a thermal problem that EVGA has addressed. I had to update the firmware and I did have them send me the fix for the thermal pads. It appears the firmware fix was enough fo me so I'll wait and not do the thermal pad addition yet. Temps have been within normal limits

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Poor quality control from EVGA, but B&H is awesome! Quick shipping from B&H!! Thank you for that. There's definitely some quality control issues from EVGA, though. Mine arrived all nicely packaged and wrapped, but there were some very noticeable scuffs and scratches on the GPU where the logos are. This wasn't expected and I'd think there would be some better QC on the production end at EVGA. It's not a deal breaker, but I expect better when buying an item costing $500+.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product - max at 1440p Product came quickly. It's a quality product that runs all of my games at max or near max settings at 1440p. There is some variance on chips and I was able to get one that runs cool below 60 C with a stock clock boost at 2012 mhz. A manual overclock brings it to 2126 mhz. This results in a couple fps here and there, but it's nice knowing I have a good overclocking card with a company with good customer service in EVGA.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from EVGA 1080 GTX I got mine from the Egg store. cost me cool 550$ with destiny game about a year ago or so. In that time I observed boost speed hitting 1970mhz,temperature holding @74c with top mounted intake AIO and few exaust fans inside full tower. Overclocking on this thing Id say ranges anywhere from 2000-2200mhz and pair that with faster memory and you looking beyond 10 frames boost over stock. Might not seem much but 40fps vs 50fps is a notable diference. I got this card to play on 2k monitor and it is bare minimum.Ti edition would be more suitable. Card is an amazing piece of hardware well worth 550$ at the time. I know,its a lot of money, but some things are worth spending on and this is one of them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product and service! Very happy with the performance, price, and service from this investment! The card runs everything I've thrown at it without breaking a sweat including ARK Survival Evolved. I upgraded from a 970 g1 gaming and learned real quick my 8320 wasn't enough for this gtx 1080 so I decided to make the leap to the 6700k and haven't looked back since!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from expensive, but powerful Replaced a two year-old GTX 780. Obviously able to run everything at 1080p at highest settings w/out issues, but then recently upgraded to a 27 G-Sync capable display. Not only can I crank up the eye candy, at highest/max settings, gameplay is buttery smooth (1440p + 120Hz). It also runs on only one six-pin PCI-E connector (my GTX 780 needed two), and from what I've read elsewhere the 1080 GTX is more efficient. Not quite a must-have at this price point (still expensive as of writing), but definitely a really-nice-to-have. Also, if you're going to get this, match it w/ a G-Sync capable display to make it really worthwhile. Short system spec: i7-3770k, Maximus IV Gene, Vengeance 2x8GB DDR3, M2 256GB SSD, Seasonic 850w PSU
