Great price. £500+ on Amazon and other sites.

Introducing the EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti HYBRID, an "all in one" water cooling solution that significantly lowers the GPU operating temperature. Best of all? The water cooler is completely self contained, with an included 120mm radiator and fan. No filling, no custom tubing, no maintenance. Just plug and play!

Accelerated by the groundbreaking NVIDIA Maxwell architecture, GTX 980 Ti delivers an unbeatable 4K and virtual reality experience. With 2816 NVIDIA CUDA Cores and 6GB of GDDR5 memory, it has the horsepower to drive whatever comes next. In fact, the EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti provides 3x the performance and 3x the memory of previous-generation cards*. You can now take on even the most challenging games at high settings for a smooth, ultra high-definition, 4K experience.

Might as well save £40 and get the 1070, which should perform better.

Yes, I have to agree. There needs to be a better price on the 980Ti cards than is currently being offered. Granted this is the hybrid water cooled version but I'd expect it to at least be a few quid under the typical price of a 1070 - seeing as they are 5-10% faster under certain benchmarks (based on reference card stats).

​Not water cooled.

You can install a custom bios with the water cooled version of these cards to get the clock up to 1500mhz which will out perform the 1070

To be fair the 980ti was great water cooled, not sure a 1070 needs it as much.

This runs at 47 degrees C, which is absolute insanity for a overclocked 980ti, well worth the money over a 1070 imo.

Got any links to prove this?

47 or 77 would not make any difference, cooler or not it will not make any difference, worth much less than that. @£320 no one bought any

What a magnificent example of a now not-quite top level GPU. As said by others, would be worth it for the feel good factor of having a high-end EVGA if it was a bit less money

Water cooled or not, it doesn't increase the performance to the point of the 1070.

hardwarecanucks.com/for…tml

24% overclock over stock. 10% overclock versus AIB.

techpowerup.com/rev…tml

The 1070 is around 14% better than the 980ti stock, and overclocks by almost exactly 10% as well.

So, water cooled 980ti overclocked to max gives identical performance to the EVGA non water cooled card.

So the question is, would you want to pay more for the same performance? The 980ti has 2GB less VRAM and is a generation older already. The 1070 has room for improvement, the 980ti won't get the same level of performance increases as the 1070.

Also, it's worth mentioning the 980ti takes over 100 extra watts to run. (less than 150 for the 1070, 250+ for the 980ti and add in more for the water pump.)

So yeah, it's water cooled... But it's not better.

Watercooling always incurs a premium regardless of performance.

So you're saying it's worth spending £40 extra just to tell your mates you have a water cooled GPU? X)

This isn't true at all.

You simply don't water cool old tech because it isn't the best.

Who buys last generations GPU and sticks a water cooler on it?

That's just silly, the point of water cooling is to push tech to it's limits, why not guy a 1080 and water cool that? Or a Titan?

There is a reason only the flagships generally get watercooling cards, because you want the best AND watercooled.

I'm just telling it like it is. The pump, fans and tubing all cost money. That money is added to the cost of the base card along with R&D expenditure and how valuable the warranty is (EVGA warranty is fantastic and the only brand I'd go with apart from KFA for high end or flagship cards).

It's people's money at the end of the day, and from where I'm standing I can't find a Ti Hybrid for less than this, so regardless of whether you think it's value for money or not, it's a deal.

Just go on the 980 ti owners forum for all the details, I only know because I have the Titan X clocked at 1500mhz and it pulls close enough to the 1080 for it not to be worth upgrading I'm going for the new Titan X very soon

Thanks I'll check it out.

I don't know how this is cold if it's the cheapest water cooled 980ti available right now.

Being ​the cheapest doesn't mean it's necessarily a deal.

Being the cheapest available is kind of the whole point of a deal no? Vs the more expensive ones this is a good deal

No, if you are buying outdated technology that is cheaper than other outdated technology... It is not a deal.

Hey, would you like to buy this Geforce 260? It's the cheapest Geforce 260 on the market...

That's not much of a deal because the card has been replaced by a card for cheaper.

Cheaper, better, stronger can make something not a deal.

​No, not when you can buy a better product for cheaper.
