Get “Peace of Mind Gaming” with EVGA’s new iCX technology. This GPU features 4K and VR readiness, two must haves for extreme PC gaming.

Let’s face it, 4K and VR are becoming staples in entertainment as more and more content is being created for our viewing pleasure. EVGA’s GeForce GTX 1080 iCX technology is powerful enough to deliver full 4K and VR experience on demand.

iCX provides interaction with other devices better cooling characteristics, a built-in power protection circuit, and enhanced overclocking capabilities.

Here are two standout components:
iCX has 9 Thermal Sensors and a microcontroller unit – These sensors are located throughout the memory and components on the front and back of the cards.  They provide readings that are displayed in EVAGA’s XOC utility and provide data to users.

Asynchrounous Fan Control – The extra sensors also help to provide a true measure of card temperature for a more efficient way to cool.  The left fan cools the GPU and the right fan is for memory cooling. The fans can be adjusted manually with can reduce noise output, in addition to running more efficiently based on the cooling needed in each heat zone.
