EVGA Z490 FTW WIFI - Back to top
Editor's Choice - Babel Tech Reviews"If you are upgrading to a i9-10900K, the EVGA Z490 FTW is an excellent choice for a fully-featured motherboard that will provide clean power and great features for overclockers."
Editor's Choice - Performance Computer"The EVGA Z490 FTW WiFi is an excellent motherboard that checks all the boxes an intermediate overclocking-oriented system builder would want. In addition to a bevy of IO options and high quality components throughout, the Z490 FTW WiFi fits in the upper band of overclocking motherboards while avoiding less important “features” like plastic “armor” and endless accessories that usually stay in the box."
EVGA Z490 DARK - Back to top
Recommend - Hardware Asylum"I find the EVGA UEFI to be very straight forward showing you the current state of your system while giving you appropriate menus to make adjustments."
EVGA XR1 Capture Device - Back to top
- Bizmaniz"It was literally plug and play. I was able to just plug it into the back of my PC and I didn't have to download any drivers, I didn't have to download any special software. I just set it up in StreamLabs and it worked."
- The Frugal Streamer"You have a controllable mixamp with a couple of different input/outputs you can use for party chat, for heatset, for monitoring, it’s the ONLY capture card that I know of that can do this."

EVGA SR-3 DARK - Back to top
- Level1Techs"I like it, it is a solid motherboard. The UEFI has all the features you expect. It is so stable at 4.5GHz. "
EVGA NU Audio Pro - Back to top
- Tom's Hardware"Audio Note did a superb job designing the card’s circuitry and electronics, and EVGA did a fine job of manufacturing it into a PC-friendly package."
EVGA GeForce RTX 3090 FTW3 ULTRA - Back to top
Highly Recommended - TechPowerUp"Gaming noise levels with the default BIOS are outstanding, almost whisper quiet—very impressive for a card in this performance class. This also makes the card the quietest RTX 3090 we've ever tested."
EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 XC3 ULTRA - Back to top
Hexus Approved - Hexus"Though the heatsink solution is not as chunky as competitors that favour three-slot cooling, EVGA does well in keeping Ampere GA102 down to very reasonable levels. And it's also pretty quiet. This harks to good engineering from EVGA's point of view."
EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 FTW3 ULTRA - Back to top
Editor's Choice - TechPowerUp"Thanks to increased power limit, the EVGA RTX 3080 FTW3 Ultra is the fastest RTX 3080 we've tested so far."
Editors' Choice - PCWorld"Bottom line? If you like to tinker with your graphics card and push clocks speeds to the bleeding performance edge, the $810 EVGA RTX 3080 FTW3 is worth every penny."
Gold Award - The FPS Review"The EVGA iCX3 cooling is one of the more robust and realized coolers we’ve seen on a video card. The extra sensors and Precision X1 software take it to another level for enthusiasts. It supports aux fan, RGB headers, and a dual-BIOS."

EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 XC3 BLACK - Back to top
Recommended - LanOC Reviews"Performance ended up being better than I expected."
EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 FTW3 ULTRA - Back to top
Editors' Choice - PCWorld"Here’s where EVGA’s goliath custom cooler shines, even before you start overclocking. Nvidia’s RTX 3070 Founders Edition hit 72 degrees Celsius under load, which is comparable to what we've seen from well-designed custom cooling solutions in the past. But EVGA’s cooler makes Nvidia’s cool temperatures look downright balmy, topping out at a frosty 62 degrees even after long gaming workloads. Even better, while Nvidia’s FE can be heard while gaming, EVGA’s FTW3 Ultra stays essentially silent at all times, even when we popped off our case’s side panel for a closer listen."
- Hardware Unboxed"The FTW3 Ultra is a cracking good RTX 3070! It is one of the best RTX 3070’s we’ve seen this far. The FTW3 is the coolest operating RTX 3070 we have tested yet."
EVGA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti FTW3 ULTRA - Back to top
Highly Recommended - TechPowerUp"EVGA has created a new cooler design for their GeForce 30 graphics cards — I really like it. The backplate design is pretty, too, because of various silver highlights and a red trim for additional impact."

Editor's Choice - Toms Hardware"If you're looking for solid 1080p performance at the $300 price point and would like ray tracing capabilities, the EVGA RTX 2060 KO Ultra Gaming should be on the shortlist."

Highly Recommended - TechPowerUp"Priced at $300 (with additional rebates from time to time), the EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 KO is an excellent choice if you are looking for more performance to drive higher resolutions."
- Tech of Tomorrow"It does run pretty cool, it runs very, very quiet. You can’t even hear it at all in the system."
Editors Choice - PCWorld"The $300 EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 KO delivers everything you need for a kick-ass gaming experience, even ray tracing, and it made some reasonable sacrifices to hit a truly compelling price point—no confusing BIOS upgrades required."
Top Honors - LANOC"You would expect then that the performance would match the 2060 Founders Edition, but what I found was across the board it was quicker."
Editors Choice Award - Funky Kit"EVGA always produces a reliable product and they have once again answered the call and provided us with the EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 KO. This card has a best of any other 2060 and the one of the smallest footprints compared to others in the same price range. You can’t go wrong with the purchase of this card."
EVGA FROSTBITE 2 - Back to top
Hardware Asylum Recommend - Hardware Asylum"Great Temperatures Easy to Install Spreads Extremely well Becomes Sticky after Installation Basically Non-Conductive"
