EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 FTW3 ULTRA GAMING Video Card, 10G-P5-3897-KR, 10GB GDDR6X, iCX3 Technology, ARGB LED, Metal Backplate
EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 FTW3 ULTRA GAMING (10G-P5-3897-KR)
Witness the new era of gaming. The GeForce RTX 3080 is powered by the NVIDIA Ampere architecture and delivers epic performance that gamers crave for 4K resolution gaming. It’s built with enhanced RT Cores and Tensor Cores, new streaming multiprocessors, and superfast G6X memory for an amazing gaming experience.
This EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 FTW3 ULTRA GAMING model is factory-overclocked to 1800 MHz Boost Clock (1710 MHz for reference card). It leverages iCX3 cooling which incorporates a suite of sensors and MCUs for smart cooling. And combined with a new streamlined design, brilliant ARGB lighting, and EVGA Precision X1 utility software for monitoring and tweaking, this next-gen graphics card is the definition of performance…and style.
EVGA’s patented iCX revolutionized graphics card cooling from the inside out. iCX was designed to detect everything to cool spots and utilized interactive cooling to ensure Peace of Mind Gaming. With 11 patents granted and pending. iCX granted users control over the functionality and information related to iCX graphics cards via EVGA’s Precision X1 software. Soon after, EVGA expanded the original design of iCX and greatly improved cooling with the second generation iCX2 and the brand new Precision X1 software.
At the heart of iCX3 is iCX Cooling, which refers to the baseplate, heatpipes, VRM and memory cooling, thermal pads, and fan design. The brain of iCX3, iCX Technology, detects temperatures at various points on the graphics card and adjusts asynchronous fans to provide the correct airflow for each area of the card.
EVGA iCX3 continues the evolution of iCX Cooling by providing improved thermal performance and significantly lower acoustic noise.
iCX Cooling set the standard
For a smarter approach to graphics card cooling and engineering to maximize cooling performance on the graphics card.
EVGA GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards with iCX3 receive an upgrade in every facet of the cooling assembly.
Goals of iCX3
Maximize the thermal contact surface area on graphics card components
Airflow pockets allow air to move more freely through the heatsink to remove more heat.
Patented copper base is 25% larger to cover both GPU and RAM area to improve thermal transfer and GPU/RAM cooling.
New 180° heatpipe design with selectively positioned heatpipes increases fin contact area by 65% and optimal heat dissipation.
Triple 2nd Generation HDB fans are installed on all air-cooled EVGA GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards to optimize airflow, increase cooling performance, and reduce fan noise
EVGA’s iCX3 fans feature a 2nd Gen optimized HDB active motor for silent 0dB mode, asynchronous fan mode, and a special upraised “E” pattern that further reduces noise.
FTW3 center fans are offset by 10mm to increase the direct airflow area by 16%.
EVGA’s iCX3 fans turn off below 55°C, generating 0dB of noise
Smart cut-outs in the PCB and backplate improve airflow and reduce exhaust recovery. Micro-thin heatpipes on the backplate further pulls heat off the PCB
Built in Micro-thin Heatpipes on the EVGA GeForce RTX 3090 backplate adds additional heat transfer from the memory backside.
Carefully placed cut-outs in the PCB and backplate improve airflow and decrease exhaust recovery.
iCX3 vs iCX2
iCX3 Technology combines sensors and micro control processors with improved iCX3 Cooling performance to make EVGA iCX3 the smartest and most-efficient cooling package available today.
EVGA iCX3 Technology leverages patented sensors and micro control processors with asynchronous fans to interactively-cool your graphics card. With at least 9 additional thermal sensors on the graphics card, EVGA iCX3 Technology can track emerging hotspots and direct iCX3 Cooling to beat the heat. Asynchronous fans cool only the areas that need cooling, which keeps your card quieter at all times. Through EVGA Precision X1, you can also monitor every iCX3 sensor and control each fan. With EVGA iCX3 Technology, you can let your graphics card worry about its own temperatures for a change and truly enjoy Peace of Mind Gaming.
EVGA iCX3 uses a patented 9 sensor design controlled by micro control processors to determine fan speed for the GPU and VRAM/PWM areas.
EVGA GeForce RTX 30 Series iCX3 graphics cards have 9 additional thermal sensors and multiple MCUs. All sensors can be displayed in EVGA Precision X1 and OSD.
Blue = Cool Green = Warm Red = Hot
iCX3 Technology uses asynchronous fans to cool graphics card components only as needed. These fans spin at different rates, ensuring that the correct areas of the card are cooled and reducing noise in the process.
