EVGA GTX 1080 Ti FTW3 Hybrid Review

By now we are all extremely familiar with the performance available from the range-topping (Titan notwithstanding) nVidia GTX 1080 Ti.
We've looked at all the major players since launch and discovered that the benefits of a hybrid cooling solution push the performance to even greater heights whilst also being quieter and cooler. Everything you can ask of a card.
EVGA endured a quiet period during the last generation. Anyone with even a passing interest in PC hardware will be aware of how much they have innovated and pushed the boundaries, but there was a little section of time when they almost dropped off the map whilst other manufacturers appeared full of fresh ideas and new takes upon the genre. With the release of the GTX 1080 Ti EVGA came back with a bang as their iCX technology and some very clever design touches reinvigorated their "For The Win" range.
The latest edition to that product range is the EVGA GTX 1080 Ti FTW3 Hybrid, taking the factory overclock one would expect to find on an EVGA FTW model, and marrying it to a hybrid cooler which allows the nVidia GPU Boost technology to work its magic.
It isn't just the cooler that marks the FTW3 out as a special as it also has more monitoring points than almost any other GPU we can think of as well as a fuse to save your card should you push things too far. Couple that to the RGB logo and some 'at a glance' LED indicators, and the FTW3 has plenty to place it at the top of the EVGA range. Does its performance echo this?
