A closer look continued
The reference Geforce GTX 980 Ti comes with three DisplayPort, single HDMI and single DVI display outputs. The EVGA SC card has the same configuration of video outputs. Four video outs can be used at the same time. HDMI comes in version 2.0, which includes HD audio and Blu-ray 3D movies support.
The backplate adds much to the overall image of the Superclock card.
The GTX 980 Ti SC+ ACX 2.0+ is ready for multi-GPU action, be it in standard two-card SLI, or 3-way and 4-way SLI. It features two SLI connectors. A combination of 6-pin and 8-pin power connectors is necessary to keep the card juiced up.
The EVGA GTX 980 Ti SC+ ACX 2.0+ PCB looks a lot like the reference GTX 980 Ti board. EVGA decided to reinforce the baseplate to strengthen the PCB and provide a bit more cooling to the memory chips and MOSFET.
The card uses an OnSemi NCP81174 voltage controller. The same controller is used for the GTX 980 Ti reference design.
In total the card has 6GB of GDDR5 memory. The SK Hynix chips, (model H5GQ4H24MFR-R2C) are specified to run at 1750 MHz (7000 MHz GDDR5 effective). All the memory modules at the front of the PCB are underneath the reinforcement plate.
