The iGame GTX 1080 KUDAN from Colorful is the most insane GTX 1080 card ‘till date. The card packs hybrid cooling solution, including classic three-fan design and a water cooling block. Because of this, the card features 4-slot form factor, with the water cooling block installed over the backplate giving the card impressive looks.
Specs-wise, the card is clocked at 1936 MHz, with the boost clock driving the core above 2 GHz. Just insane. As with all other GTX 1080 cards, the iGame GTX 1080 KUDAN is based on the GP104 GPU, consisting out of 2560 CUDA cores, and 8 GB of GDDR5X vRAM. Unlike the crazy core clock, the memory is clocked at 10 GHz, a reference memory clock for GTX 1080.
The card features a 4-slot form factor, something you don’t see every day. The card itself uses 3 slots, with the water cooling block mounted on the backplate uses 4th slot. Overall, the iGame GTX 1080 KUDAN is a beast. Aside from water cooling, Colorful installed a classic solution packing three fans along with aluminum-fin heatsink. Gamers can use just fans for cooling, but it would be insane to buy this card and not hook it up to a water cooling solution.
This monster is powered by two 8-pin connectors, along with a custom PCB design allowing for nice overclock performance. On the back, you can find one DVI port, one HDMI port, and three DisplayPort connectors. On top of everything, the card packs an overclocking switch that activates the OC BIOS, meant for ultimate overclockers. The iGame GTX 1080 KUDAN was presented during Colorful CGU (Colorful Games Union) event, and while the price wasn’t revealed, it’s expected to feature a price closing on $1000. The card should become available either during December or January.
Aside from the ultimate GTX 1080 video card, Colorful launched an iGame GTX 1070 Snake X-TOP graphics card, featuring three-clot form factor, a 1657 MHz base clock (1860 MHz boost), 8 GB of VRAM and dual 8-Pin power connectors. As is the case with its more powerful cousin, the iGame GTX 1070 Snake X-TOP also features a switch used for activating special OC BIOS. The price should be around $580, and the model will be made in just 200 units. Talk about exclusivity.
