EVGA GTX 1080 FTW2, iCX Cooling Technology, 9 Thermal Sensors

The end of 2016 was not so great for EVGA as a couple of EVGA GTX 1080s and 1070s were catching fire due to a thermal issue with the GPUs. Since then the company has taken responsibility for the issue and has replaced the GPUs and provided proper cooling pads for the GPUs that did not have them.

It is safe to say that this incident lead to a major hit in companies image. The company is now looking to redeem itself with the EVGA GTX 1080 FTW2.

The EVGA GTX 1080 FTW2 features the new iCX cooler and iCX cooling technology which improves cooling and reduced the temperature of the GPU when under load. This means that you no longer need to worry about your GPU catching fire under intense load in your next YouTube live stream.

EVGA stresses that iCX is not just a new cooler but a new technology and you can see what they mean by that in the video below.

EVGA GTX 1080 FTW2 features a blend of new technologies that help reduce the temperature of your GPU. There are 9 thermal sensors embedded in the GPU that monitor the temperature and heat dissipations of the GPU and interacts accordingly. The GPU features two fans, the sensors can detect the temperature of different parts of the GPU and allow the fans to spin at speeds independent of one another.

The EVGA GTX 1080 FTW2 features a base plate as well as a backplate to make the card more rigid and allow for better heat dissipations.  This is a serious statement that EVGA is making here. I am sure that this will motivate gamers to come back the brand and it will help the company make amends. Let us know what you think about the EVGA GTX 1080 FTW2. Would you consider going back to EVGA GPUs?
