EVGA’s suite at the Bellagio Hotel proved to be one of the highlights during our coverage of CES 2015. It’s great to see a company so devoted to the enthusiast community and that continually strives to provide products for gamers, overclockers, and PC enthusiasts alike.
The first thing we looked at was their X99 motherboard offerings, which include the Classified, FTW, and Micro editions. We’ve already reviewed the Classified and FTW models, and we hope to have a X99 Micro to review shortly.
EVGA had a full assortment of SuperNova power supplies on display, including their circuit breaker busting 1600 T2. The 1600 T2 is 80 Plus Titanium rated and boasts 133 Amps on a single 12V rail. Quite simply, it’s a beast of a PSU.
On the video card side of things, EVGA showed the soon to be released GTX 980 KINGPIN Edition. Using dual 8-pin and one 6-pin power connectors, the GTX 980 KINGPIN will be able to take full advantage of the added power phases EVGA has planned for this card.
EVGA was also showing a GTX 980 decked out with an AIO water cooler. They are offering the GTX 980 and AIO as a complete kit and also plan to make the AIO cooler available separately. EVGA mentioned the AIO cooler will fit any reference design GTX 980 on the market.
Both of these GTX 980 offerings should be available Q1 or Q2 2015.
EVGA also showed us new mice and a keyboard that should be available in the coming months. The Torq X5 and Torq X3 series mice are intended to be a lower cost option than the popular X10 gaming mouse released last year. The X5 will be available in a 6400 DPI optical sensor version or in a 8200 DPI laser sensor version. The Torq X3 will be even more cost conscious and available in a 4000 DPI optical sensor version or 5000 DPI laser sensor version.
The Z10 is EVGA’s latest mechanical keyboard that features Cherry Red keys. The Z10 will integrate with EVGA’s Unleash software, which lets the user program macro G keys, the LED backlighting, and the LCD module. The LCD display built into the keyboard can provide system monitoring information, such as temperatures, fan speeds, etc.
