Question.. I just ordered the SC2 Hybrid from Newegg but didn't see anything about the Ghost Recon/For Honor promo.  Is that not available with that card through Newegg?  No big deal if not, just curious since it's available on the EVGA site with the promo.




Should be there, we are reaching out.


I was lucky enough to snag one of them before they sold out on Newegg, but apparently I was too quick as the promotion hadn't been activated on that item yet, and because I didn't make a qualifying purchase during the proper "time frame" Newegg will not send me the code.

Is this something that EVGA or Nvidia could help me out with?


+1 I think I did the same. Seems we should still be able to get this offer, I hope.

It's looking like we won't be able to get it.  Hope EVGA or nVidia can do something about it. Newegg screws up and doesn't list that it has the promotional deal and we get screwed because of it.

That would surprise me... Newegg is usually quite good with customer service. I'll call them tomorrow, and if I have any luck I'll repost an update.

Why can't I just preorder it on Amazon/EVGA/Newegg and get it when there are stocks?

Please let us know how you make out.  I talked to customer service twice in the last 24 hours.  First was told they put in a request(haven't heard back on that one), then the second time was told that the only way to get the promo was to send the card back and reorder it.

I sent them an email with my order info and asking about the code. They responded with the code in about an hour. Try contacting them again.

Good to hear! I'll try shooting them an email as well then and see if I get similar results I'll update when I do.
 
As to the previous guys' remarks about not being able preorder; that is kinda odd. It would seem to make good business sense too.
My best guess is that they maybe launched this card earlier than they initially anticipated and weren't prepared to announce the launch with preorders.
This could have been sparked by MSI and Corsair launching their hybrid card last week or whenever that was (although I heard it's already discontinued? odd... lots of coil whine issues it seems).
That would go along with why nothing was heard about this card until the very day it launched, and also why stocks are so low.
As it is they seem to be exceeding supply with the demand even without preorders.

What's this about a FTW hybrid? When have they ever put out multiple hybrids? When I seen the announcement i assumed this was the hybrid for this year.

@Jacob, do you have a new ETA for more cards to be in stock?




May have more next week.



Thanks Jacob.

and can you say price for Hydro version? I need know what is better option (price). Wait on Hydro or buy air cooled version. Block + backplate I buy from EKWB.
 
Example 1080 Hydro version cost lower like option 1080 on Air + block + backplate.




It shows, in the product pages, USD809,99.

This is what I'd like clarification on. I'm all set to cancel Seahawk X and instead order the SC2 HYBRID right now, but if FTW3 HYBRID is coming then I'd wait for that.

I know right? After the 980Ti Hybrid craziness you'd think they'd have fixed it for the next time round. Funny thing is preorders are available for the most useless things (like digital games) that have infinite "stock" and yet the things that really need to have preordering as an option cause there is a physical stock limit don't have them . The world is just completely backwards now or to put on my tinfoil hat for a moment, a conspiracy to help inflate the prices of these items for ebay sellers .

Amazon still doesn't have pre-orders for destiny 2 digital edition...

Any word on EU release dates?


I really need to know this as well. I have been using the i7 7700k on chip GPU since February, waiting for this card.

Come on EVGA/Jacob, give us in the (EU) a little love 🤣.



Stock this week in EU.


EVGA/Jacob

Scan.co.uk, now have the card for pre-order/purchase.

Please can you tell us in the (EU) if we will be able to purchase this card from EVGA EU store today.

Thanks

I second that question to @Jacob. I want to snag hybrid card but I would love it to be FTW Hybrid card. Please kindly let us know if you plan on releasing FTW Hybrid so I can decide to order or not SC one :)
 
I think 1080Ti is finally a good time to have more than one Hybrid version, as EVGA usually has 3-4 air-cooled versions.
 
Thank you very much in advance.

Again, being redundant here... But I really don't understand the issue here, maybe someone can help enlighten me?
 
The reason for multiple air cooled versions would be to compete with other AIB manufacturers across the $700-$800 spectrum. This makes some sense with air cooled cards, since small tweaks to airflow and thermal padding, fan setup and design, back plating, etc. can all have some marginal impact on performance. Even then however, every 1080ti card is going to perform almost exactly the same on real world applications (~1-4 FPS), depending on the silicon lottery (this is the biggest variable in OC performance). Outside of this however, really all you're comparing across that air cooled spectrum is aesthetics, acoustics and temperature under load differences. This already being a water cooled card, the acoustics and thermals are not going to be an issue at all. The FTW3 and SC2 aesthetics are very similar as well, and would be as hybrids, perhaps even more-so. 
 
I guess I don't understand people's hesitance to just buy this card rather than postpone for an FTW hybrid? Can someone help me to understand? I'm not trying to be confrontational here. I genuinely just don't understand if I'm missing something here, and maybe help some people decipher the different reasons for why you would want an FTW or SC2, etc.
 
P.S. as an aside, Jayztwocents on youtube just did a video talking about this very issue in his testing of the ASUS 1080ti Strix. He said that he's not even going to post performance benchmark test results because all of these cards are going to perform about the same. Instead, he just talked about the acoustics, aesthetics and other small details that really are the more important factor in deciding which brand/SKU to get.
I personally chose this card because it's less than $100 more than other AIB boards, but I appreciate the lower temps and acoustics, lower case airflow requirements, etc. As well as EVGA's generally good build quality and support.

They did say in the email that this was considered "an exception" because they value me as a customer, but I suspect they'll do the same for anyone in our position that just spent over $800 on a GPU from them.
 
Hope you can get similarly successful results.
Cheers.

Because sometimes people want to buy the top of the range. The best in class. Not the second best. Depends on the wait, sure. I did have a Seahawk X on order until I saw EVGA had gotten this card out. I figured it can't be long for a FTW3 HYBRID. Hence my question - how long to wait.....

Why? It's the same specs as the regular SC2 except for the cooling. The base and boost clocks on the product descriptions are identical.

Finally got my code this afternoon, after going back and forth with them three different times about it. I've never had any issues with Newegg Customer Support until this, but glad they finally did the right thing and gave me the code.

Re: EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 HYBRID 2017/05/04 13:48:44 (permalink)
So let me get this straight. The 1080 Ti SC Hybrid has two separate fan connectors? The radiator fan connects to the card itself (just like the current 1080 Hybrid) but the blower fan on the card now connects to a PWM header on the motherboard? I have an Asus Z170 board as per my sig but I don't use AI Suite or any fan control apps. How would I control the PWM fan connected to the motherboard if I don't have any temp sensors to monitor it? Do I need to buy an Asus thermal sensor for this to fully work?
 
Also, the current standalone Hybrid kit for the 1080 Ti FE, this just has the same single radiator fan connection like my current 1080 FTW Hybrid and NOT the additional PWM connector like the SC2 Hybrid, correct? If this is the case I'd honestly prefer to go with the standalone Hybrid kit. I never had a problem with the noise or temps on any Hybrid card in the past and am content with how things have always been.

Best approach is to simply set the fan on the radiator to a fixed speed. You will need to figure out the sweet spot between thermals and noise yourself.

So let me get this straight. The 1080 Ti SC Hybrid has two separate fan connectors? The radiator fan connects to the card itself (just like the current 1080 Hybrid) but the blower fan on the card now connects to a PWM header on the motherboard? I have an Asus Z170 board as per my sig but I don't use AI Suite or any fan control apps. How would I control the PWM fan connected to the motherboard if I don't have any temp sensors to monitor it? Do I need to buy an Asus thermal sensor for this to fully work?
 
Also, the current standalone Hybrid kit for the 1080 Ti FE, this just has the same single radiator fan connection like my current 1080 FTW Hybrid and NOT the additional PWM connector like the SC2 Hybrid, correct? If this is the case I'd honestly prefer to go with the standalone Hybrid kit. I never had a problem with the noise or temps on any Hybrid card in the past and am content with how things have always been. 




My guess is that the blower fan will operate based on temperatures coming off the VRM through the ICX thermal detectors and will be controllable through the EVGA software, or will be set at some stock speed for each temp. off the VRM. Your fans don't need to be connected to the motherboard since your GPU already is. PWM just means that you have more adjust ability in the fan curve than a DC fan. This is my interpretation anyhow, but could be off.

What of the connections like I was asking about? What connects to where? Like I said, my current Hybrid card just has 1 fan connection to worry about. Radiator fan plugs into fan header directly on the card. With this new 1080 Ti Hybrid system is there the same radiator fan connection PLUS an additional fan cable to plug into the motherboard? The description is not that clear to me.

Thanks! That makes sense.
