EVGA Unveils Three New GTX 10-Series HB SLI Bridges for Enthusiast Builds
After revealing their custom-designed GTX 1070 and GTX 1080, EVGA has just shown off its three new RGB high-bandwidth SLI bridges for Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 10-series graphics cards. These SLI bridges will allow users add style to their EVGA-branded GeForce cards, enhancing the aesthetics and overall look of their gaming rig.
For now, EVGA has unveiled only 2-way SLI bridges, but expect the 3-way and 4-way bridges to debut in the coming weeks. The 2-way HB SLI bridges feature full RGB illumination for EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 FTW and GTX 1080 Classified variants.
These SLI bridges come in three different sizes for various configurations:
- 1U (small size with no gap between the cards)
- 2U (medium-sized with a one-slot gap between the cards)
- 3U (longer with a two-slot gap between the cards)
Currently, we don’t know if EVGA’s GTX 10-series HB SLI bridges will be available for purchase as separate entity, but they are likely to be.
Speaking of the EVGA custom cards, EVGA had plenty of the GTX 1080 graphics cards on show at Computex, including the GTX 1080 Classified, GTX 1080 FTW and GTX 1080 SC, all with their next generation ACX 3.0 cooling solution.
In addition to these, there is also a GTX 1080 Hybrid Edition that is specially designed for those who want nothing but the coolest temperature, as this card features an all-in-one liquid cooling.
Photos of EVGA GTX 1070 SC Gaming have also leaked out. It seems like the new card is based on reference PCB with single 8-pin connector.
The highlight feature in EVGA’s custom GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 is its third iteration of ACX Cooler which has received mixed reviews from graphics enthusiasts. The cooler is equipped with dual ball bearing fans with 0-db fan idle mode. EVGA says the new design is optimized to deliver high airflow while consuming less power than a traditional fan.
