With a PCB similar to the GTX 1080 Ti SC2 (Elite), the new GTX 1080 Ti SC2 Hybrid comes with a 7+2-phase VRM, drawing power from 8+6-pin PCIe power connectors as well as nine separate thermal sensors around the PCB, including memory and VRM sensors.
As it uses pretty much the same PCB, the GTX 1080 Ti SC2 Hybrid works at the same 1556MHz base and 1670MHz GPU Boost clocks, just like the GTX 1080 Ti SC2. It also comes with 11GB of GDDR5 memory, clocked at 11016MHz effective and paired up with a 352-bit memory interface.
The new GTX 1080 Ti SC2 Hybrid comes with a whole new Hybrid cooler, featuring and all-in-one, self-contained, liquid cooler with copper base, dedicated memory plate, which makes direct contact with the cooling block, and a built-in 120mm radiator. The standard dual-slot blower fan should keep the VRM well cooled and it also comes with a full-cover backplate, which should both provide rigidity as well as keep the backside cooler. Since it features EVGA's iCX technology, it also comes with a full control of the cooler by using EVGA's Precision XOC software.
According to EVGA, both the GPU and the memory should be much cooler compared to a standard Geforce GTX 1080 Ti, by over 30 degrees.
Unfortunately, the new GTX 1080 Ti SC2 Hybrid is still not available, but EVGA already has it listed on its own web shop for US $809.99/€743.79 exc. VAT.
