These questions were posted to [ FindPost/2944377 ] but, since the OP's question had been answered, I presume that it won't receive an answer, no matter how related to the OP's topic it might be:

I just bought a 
08G-P4-1071-KR someplace with a less than advantageous price point, mainly because I saw them going out of stock all over the place.  Only AFTER I made the purchase did I see the 08G-P4-1171-KR available at a price that is in line with my expectations; however, I cannot cancel the sale of the '1071', and I am OK with that.


As near as I can tell, the only difference between the '1071' and the '1171' is the 'A-chip' (which I really don't care about) and the power connector configuration (8-pin on the '1071', 8-pin & 6-pin on the '1171').


Now, I wouldn't bat an eye over the change in power connector compliment on the newer card, had I not seen reports of RTX 2080 cards having issues with smoking (which I assume is attributable to over-overclocking / over-voltage).  

 
To my eye, it appears that the two cards (RTX 2080 and RTX 2070) are similar enough to justify these questions:
1.) Was the connector delta from the '1071' to the '1171' occasioned by engineering concerns about power supply distribution within the GPU PC board, itself (PC board power supply rail traces cooking themselves)?  

2.) And, if so, should this be of concern for me, if I have no plans of running the '1071' assembly outside of its design specs (in other words, no overclocking and no over voltage)?
3.) Has the '1071' part number been entirely superseded by the '1171' part number, now?
4.) Does EVGA consider the '1071' product subject to under warranty replacement (even though in new and unused condition) because of the issue I have mentioned, above?


Mind you, I am not trolling to replace a card that I don't have in my hands yet.  I'd much rather receive the card and put it straight to work.  I'm just interested in knowing if there are reasonable limitations on the card, or potential risk factors, that I should be aware of.  Having this information will allow me to use the card without pushing its limits.

    Cool GTXBasically non "A-chip" GPU are at factory Clocks & can not have their BIOS modified by say replacing it with one from a different GPU
