We visited EVGA’s suite at CES 2017 and saw first-hand some of the new water cooling blocks that will be coming in the next few months. Both closed-loop and open-loop blocks were shown, with a variety of quick-release connectors. EVGA will also be releasing CPU blocks, as well as its own GPU water coolers and waterblocks.
We’d also like to take this opportunity to showcase our very first live interview, as we break out into the world of online video. This has been a long time coming, as it’s been in the works for a while. As such, we’re still inexperienced, and there will likely be a couple of issues until we sort out the kinks (video is hard). Now, back to EVGA.
When it comes to GPUs, EVGA has a new model that will be launching soon called the ICX, which is an update to the ACX boards. On the surface, things look almost identical, but there is a lot of new features and tech going on under the cooler, as well as a redesigned backplate with venting. EVGA could not comment on all the new features at this time, but we’ll here back from them closer to launch.
A set of new motherboards will be released soon, including a mini-ITX board with M.2 storage on the reverse, and a U.2 port. Laptop refreshes are coming too, with slim-line 15-inch systems with GTX 1060-1080 being made available, suitable for VR. Power supplies were shown off, but most of those came out late last year, with a new entry-level bronze edition PSU, and a very compact kilowatt PSU.
Wrapping up there was a brief view of the new DG-7 chassis, which is a mid-tower case based on the full-tower DG-87.
We’ll update with more details later. Also, thanks for watching our first video!
