EVGA announces SC15 laptop, Kingpin GTX 1080 Ti and more

We take a tour of the EVGA booth at Computex.
First seen at CES 2017, EVGA is now closer to launching the SC15 laptop, which is the little brother to the SC17 that's been out for a while.
It features a 120Hz G-Sync IPS screen, GeForce GTX 1060 6GB graphics, four-zone RGB keyboard, offset trackpad, and a Core i7-7700HQ processor backed by 16GB of RAM.
It'll be interesting to see if EVGA actually comes out with this model in the next two months; today's release of Nvidia Max-Q technology may cause a rethink.
Switching gears, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti KingPin card is also due out soon. Guaranteed to run at 2,025MHz boost clock once overclocked, EVGA has moved the twin 8-pin connectors to the side of the board. Cooling is enhanced when compared to FTW3, too, as there are now double-stacked copper-plated heatpipes. The standard card uses a two-slot form factor, but it can be watercooled down to a single slot if needs be. Pricing is yet to be confirmed.
Lastly, the Intel X299 platform ushers in a number of boards. EVGA's X299 Dark is different insofar as it has dedicated cooling for the M.2 drives. The board's edge is different from normal, as well, and we should have it in the labs in the next month or so.
