Now that’s a name I haven’t heard in while … ELSA. It’s good to see they’re back in the game, but it’s a tough and saturated market already. Will they be competitive enough? Only time will tell.
ELSA ‘s appearances in TechPowerUp’s front pages have been few and far between, with the last iteration of a graphics card from this manufacturer having made its way into our news feed around February 5th, 2015, with its GTX 960 SAC graphics card. That doesn’t mean they ELSA isn’t worthy of our attention, though, so here goes: the announcement of a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card.
The ELSA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11 GB ST graphics card features a stock blower design that’s reminiscent of those offered in AMD’s base models, with a subdued black and silver color scheme. It’s a pretty graphics card, though it will likely be let down by its cooling and acoustic performance. Specs are vanilla when it comes to NVIDIA’s reference GTX 1080 Ti clocks: there’s a base clock of 1,480 MHz (actually 1 MHz lower than NVIDIA’s reference) and 1,582 MHz Boost, with 11 GB of 11 GHz GDDR5X memory. The ELSA GTX 1080 Ti 11GB ST graphics card draws power from the PCIe bus, and from 1x 6-pin and 1x 8-pin connectors. Display outputs on this dual-slot graphics card come in at 3x DisplayPort, 1x Dual link DVI-D, and 1x HDMI 2.0b. The card’s dimensions stand at 266 mm (L) x 111 mm (H) x 39 mm (D).
