Will there be a 1080 Ti Kingpin? That's what I've been waiting for to finish my build instead of picking up 2 Titan XPs.

    I'm pretty sure Vince and Tin are over making " Kingpin. " model cards after the 980ti nonsense, there has been absolutely no need except for guys like them, the 20 or so professional overclockers in the world to have cards designed like that with how pascal functions and nvidia's new lock downs on Bios'.

    From what I've read so far the main attractions to the Ti are obviously the price and the fact that Nvidia is putting no restrictions on partners' designs so I don't see why there wouldn't be one.

    If the best that they are coming up with is the FTW3 I'll be buying a Galax HOF this time around.

    Maybe wait for information, since they only teased one card for EVGA so far. How many times have they not released a classified on the x80 or x80ti card at least?

    The Galax cards are usually pretty nice as well, so it wouldnt be a bad buy.

    A kingpin card would be pointless. They don't benefit from more voltage and the people that do LN2 are likely willing to install EPOWER boards if they actually need the additional voltage.

    Epower, or gtx480 vrm sections, the way overclocking is actually done for those that "only buy enthusiast grade and top of the line cards"... ie, the ones that arent afraid to kill a card trying to overclock it.



    For those that dont know, this is how Vince "K|ngp|n" Lucido actually uses high end cards before they make a card that is used on air. The card that he creates for the public is so you all that "only buy the highest facotry overclocked cards with the best vrm" dont have to destroy a card like this to be able to run it on air.

    The KPE and Classifieds are neat, if you are using them for what they were designed to do.

    They'll keep selling them as long is people keep buying them.  People will never learn.
     
    The only way the titan XP or 1080ti win at that level of build out are with true custom bios w/ voltage control... under ln2, slammed.  1 scenario.... and you can't even game or do anything near productive on it,  just bench ( if it passes )

    I think people miss the point with the Kingpin cards, with the cooler they come with they are the ultimate air cooled card.

    That is what makes everyone laugh. They make them flashy to sell them. The people buying them for their true purpose never wanted rgb.

    True.
     
    Most of my high end cards I water cool, the only ones I don't are the Kingpins.
     
    I weighed one of my 980 Ti Kingpins on the bathroom scales and it came in at 1.5kg with the cooler on !!!

    It would weigh more with a solid copper pot on it. The thing doesnt come with a VRAM heater for air use.

    Personally, I dont care how people waste their money and then justify it, but the K|ngp|n cards are strictly a waste of money on air, especially when people pay the almost the same price of a Titan X to get the 78 and 80% cards.

    Then quite a few died on air without warning.

    I understand why they have to sell them to air users, or they would only sell around 100 of them total. The rest go to air users and make absolutely no use of the built in features like the heater that are meant for LN2.

    Remember when EVGA sold pre-binned Kingpin 980ti cards based on ASIC scores and charged $849 for a basic score and $1049 for the same card with a higher ASIC score?  Nvidia loved it.  So much they removed ASIC scores from the 10 series.   At least that was my theory.

    is kingpin overkill for most everyday use ?

    It's actually not overkill that's just you psyching yourself out. It will perform no better than any other GP102. 😂
