EVGA has added a quiet-running GeForce GTX 1070 Ti to its product lineup. The company's new GeForce GTX 1070 Ti FTW Ultra Silent Gaming (08G-P4-6678-KR) card is equipped with a large cooler and heatsink to keep temps in check, and allow the fans to run at a lower and quieter speed.
The trade off for this kind of noise reduction is size—EVGA's new card is billed as having a 2.5-slot cooler, which effectively takes up a third slot instead two like most other high-end graphics cards. That could be an issue if you're using a discrete sound card or otherwise using up your available expansion slots, though nowadays motherboards are brimming with embedded technologies that lessen the need for discrete parts.
Out of the box, EVGA's new card has a 1,607MHz base clock and 1,683MHz boost clock, as Nvidia does not allow its partners to overclock the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti. However, EVGA sidesteps the restriction with a one-click overclocking solution through its Precision X OC software. With a 10+2 power phase design and a beefy cooling solution, users should be able to goose the clocks a bit.
The card draws power from a pair of 8-pin PCIe plugs. It also has two BIOSes, just in case something goes wrong. Display outputs consist of three DisplayPort 1.4 connectors, an HDMI 2.0 connector, and a DVI-D port.
EVGA's GeForce GTX 1070 Ti FTW Ultra Silent Gaming is available now for $500.
