Colorful Shows Off iGame NVIDIA GTX 1080 Kudan and GTX 1070 Snake

The graphics cards are equipped with mightily beefed-up coolers, as well as custom PCBs; GTX 1080 coming later in January

Colorful, while far from being as popular EVGA or MSI, puts quite a lot of effort into its graphics cards. It’s fair to say that it’s trying to carve a niche of its own. And with products like the ones under discussion today, it is well on its way.

The firm has dished out new variants of the GTX 1080 and GTX 1070. Under its iGame brand name, these new cards come with a ton of features. The GTX 1080 KUDAN, as it’s called, has a hybrid cooling solution. This should help enormously when overclocking. And you’d be naïve to not overclock this one. That’s because it has a custom PCB, which means added power draw and more overclocking headroom. It is expected to cost around the $800-900 mark.

Moving on to the GTX 1070 SNAKE X-TOP. This one, which is already in the market, is also factory overclocked. Only meant for the APAC region, it is inspired by the e-sports outfit SNAKE. This one also has a custom PCB, with two 8-pin power connectors. Costing around $580, it is only targeting the e-sports fanatic.

The GTX 1080 KUDAN will launch either later in December, or in January next year.
