EVGA GTX 1080 ACX 3.0 overview

  • 1Description

Based on NVIDIA's Pascal architecture, the EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 ACX 3.0 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
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.
NVIDIA Ansel
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.
CUDA
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 ACX 3.0 reviews

    GeForce GTX 1080 ACX 3.0 Graphics Card is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing short of excellent. Originally pre-ordered the F T W edition before finding out it was going to be delayed another month. This was a great alternative since I was adamant on getting a card by EVGA with the ACX 3.0 cooler. Couldn't be happier with the performance I'm seeing with my 1080p monitor. B&H was kind enough to ship this one-day for free. Thanks!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great card I've been wanting to build my own rig for 15 years now and this year I was finally able to do just that. It took a bit longer since I was waiting to find a 1080 that wasn't ridiculously overpriced and after waiting an extra month I finally found one on this site. I am supremely happy with this graphics card.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty fast, but not as fast as Nvidia claims I bought two of these to run in SLI (had to return one of them for a replacement, so far I tested only one). I'm coming from 2X GTX 980 SCs in SLI. Nvidia claims that ONE 1080 is FASTER than 2X GTX 980s. I ran multiple benchmarks from Unigine Heaven to several games including BF4, Assetto Corsa, Project Cars, Witcher 3, Warhammer: The End Times, Borderlands 2, Tomb Raider, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. Using FRAPS to records Min/Max/Avg FPS I found out that one GTX 1080 is about 15-20% SLOWER than TWO GTX 980s. All tests were done in 4K and max settings. I will be getting my second card this week and I will try to update this review to add more details with actual benchmark numbers. In short, if you have a single 9 series video card, this would be a hell of an upgrade for you.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't buy just 1! This card is SO fast! I bought two for 4K@60fps gaming. Does not disappoint! Don't settle for anything less.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good video card This card is a reference board with an after market cooler. So is the superclocked version. They're the same card, one just has a factory overclock. I was able to get a stable 2005 mhz on the gpu and 4950 mhz on the memory without changing the power limit. Under load it hits 70 degrees with a bit more aggressive fan curve. The leds aren't rgb, they're a very cool white(slightly blue).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Triple 1440p Rocks I've never been so satisfied with a video card. I expected good results on a triple 1080p setup and was not disappointed at all. Then I upgraded to a triple 1440p setup, and I am still not disappointed at all! There is very little info out there on a triple 1440p (2k) setup, and a lot of speculation I will add. Well, it rocks! Let me add that I am water cooling this card through a custom loop using an EK waterblock and backplate. With the stock cooler it ran at 55 idle and 75 under load. Now it runs at 40 under load, while running Doom on triple 1440p ultra settings. I have three Dell Ultrasharp 27's and couldn't be happier. It was this or a single widescreen monitor, but I prefer a triple monitor setup so I went ahead and invested. That's the problem once you get used to something, So little info out there I wanted to let people know. I also run Farcry 4 at triple 1440p and it's fine, but don't see a noticeable jump in image quality like Doom. It does lag just a little, but I get super frame rates by dropping Farcry 4 textures from ultra to very high at 1440p. But at this point I'm just running that game at triple 1080p on ultra because it looks awesome. Doom on the other hand is a different story. Huge bump in quality with no noticeable drop in frame rate at all. I haven't tried other games because those are all I play. I just upgraded from a GTX 670 and all I can say is this is the best upgrade I have ever made. This card works better than expected.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks great. Unfortunately... Unfortunately the card I received does not work. There was some shipping damage, and after I installed it it said no display on my monitor. My previous card (a GTX 970) worked so I went ahead and bought a GTX 1080 FE card on from another merchant, wanting to be sure it wasn't due to a incompatibility of my motherboard. The FE worked flawlessly so it's clear either the card was DOA from the factory or something happened from shipping damage. Either way, I'm okay with the founders edition card.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Graphics Card Excellent graphics card! I've been testing it by playing The Witcher 3 at 4K with all settings set to ultra. It ran pretty smoothly, with only the occasional dip to mid-20 FPS. I just finished overclocking the card using EVGA's Precision XOC, and now the game runs perfectly
