Clock Speeds

 

The EVGA SC2 isn't the faster GTX 1080 Ti we've reviewed, but nor did we expect it to be. With FTW versions EVGA had to leave themselves some wiggle room, so with the SC2 you're getting something that is faster than a reference stock card, but not quite at the very peak of potential. However, as we'll see, relatively low clock speeds don't mean low performance.

Nice review Tom and I have to say the more I see that cooler the more it grows on me as I really didn't like it at first, and really good of EVGA to sort any possible issues with these cards and as you said they really deserve Kudos for the way they handled everything.Quote

Same. I wasn't sure at first it looked like a 3D printed cast for a broken arm. Now I quite like it - especially the plain black version.Quote

Definitely over engineered and that's a good thing, very good of them! Also staying with a 2 slot design is welcome in my book because if there's one thing that eats me up it's sag
Thanks for the review!Quote

It's wonderful. Like pretty much everything about it, apart from the Nvidia stupid voltage lock.

It kinda makes cards like this a little pointless. Same goes for the HOF too. No wonder MSI stopped making Lightning cards..Quote
