EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti Classified ACX 2.0+ for Extreme Overclocking
EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti Classified ACX 2.0+ has a belligerent power design and made especially for extreme overclocking.
As you all know that overclocking results in extra heat and for the fastest GTX 980 Ti you need to overclock. This new chip keeps your GPU cool and handles the overheating issues. Although we have not tested the chip for performance, the card has lots of valid reasons to be efficient.
The EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti Classified ACX 2.0+ has a full digital VRM with a total of 14+3 power phase design. The reference design uses 6+2 power phase and EVGA shows clear improvement. Had there been limited power phases then the GPU might overheat and die. Meanwhile having more of them increases the life span of your GPU.
EVGA has also replaced the one 8pin and one 6-pin PCI-E power connections with two 8-pin PCI-E power connections, which increases the limit from 300 W to 375 W. In order to achieve higher clock speeds and better overclocking, users must revise the BIOS on their GPU.
EVGA has loaded the GTX 980 Ti with two BIOS chips so that you switch between the primary and secondary BIOS with the flick of a switch in case the primary BIOS stops working. In order to prevent overheating, EVGA has added a cooling solution.
Cooling plates have been set on memory MOSFET and the back of the card has a metal plate. The MOSFET reduces the temperature of the GPU to 13 percent and the straight heat pipes another 5 percent. EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti Classified ACX 2.0+ will be available following today with an MSRP of $699.99.
