EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti FTW3 GAMING Review, Unleash The Beast!!! (11G-P4-6696-KR)

Power, Thermals and Noise

Power

Power Consumption we took while running MSI Kombuster and the Furry Torus at 4K with the video cards stock speed in force.

Idling we got a total system power consumption of 77W while at load we got 407W which is expected as the EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti FTW3 is pushing 12 Billion transistors and 11GB GDDR5.

Temps

For our thermal testing, we ran MSI Kombuster at the 4K resolution for a total of 30 minutes then recorded the maximum temperature.

We saw the temperature spike to 70°C for a split second then the third fan kicked in and leveled out at 69°C and remained at 68 – 69°C showing what a fantastic cooler the ICX design really is.

New Noise

The fan noise level of the EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti FTW3 ran about 28dB using the normal fan curve and we couldn’t detect any noise inside the MasterCase 5. When we cranked the fans up to 100% for OCing we got 36dBA both totally acceptable noise levels. During normal gameplay, we couldn’t hear the EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti FTW3 at all inside the chassis.

  1. Those results are pointless. Nothing to compare them with. Why there are no other 1080ti in the graphs? Why there’s no titan cards?
    Compare it with other 1080ti and titans and than we can have come common ground to check if that FTW3 is worth buying or not.

  2. ….Or you know, you could thank them for reviewing the card (thanks BTW) and compare this review to the million other reviews of the other 1080ti’s. Or you can whine and sound like some entitled infant. Or you could simply make a suggestion without coming across as a complete douche.

  3. I’m considering upgrading from the GTX 1080 FTW, so this review is exactly what I was hoping to see. Thanks for your work!

  4. Hello,

    Thanks for your review!

    What are these numbers? Is it max, average FPS? What were exactly your GTA settings (you just write very high / AA 4x)? Did you activated and maxed all the options (Long shadows / High resolution shadows …) in the Advanced Graphics menu? Did you use the benchmark included in the game?

    I’m asking all these questions because after reading your review I decided to buy this GPU and I’m far from your results (i7 4770k @4.2ghz / MSI Z87-GD65 GAMING / Corsair Vengeance 16 GB DDR3 @1866Mhz / EVGA SuperNOVA 750 G2).

    Thanks again and have a nice day.

    • What results are you getting?

      On my system (7700K @ 5GHZ / FTW3 / Z270 GAMING M7 / G.SKILL RIPJAWS V 3000MHZ / SAMSUNG 850 PRO SSD) I get an average of 99 – 120 @ 1440p with the following settings.

      In the GRAPHICS section, *everything* is maxed except for:
      FXAA, set to ON.
      MSAA, set to 4X.
      TXAA, set to OFF.
      Grass, set to HIGH.

      In the ADVANCED GRAPHICS section, everything is set to ON except for:
      Frame Scaling, set to OFF.
      Extended Distance Scaling, set to 40%.
      Extended Shadows Distance, set to 40%.

      In grassy areas the FPS drops, as you might expect, considerably to around 65 FPS.

  5. I just installed this card and my screen is doing the flashing issue and yes I installed the latest drivers. Any suggestions?

  6. Try moving the card one slot down on the motherboard. Sometimes the backplate touches a ram bank clip and can cause flashing.
