MSI to Launch New Custom Version of GTX 1080 Ti - The Gaming X Trio

While we're still waiting to see AMD's Vega graphics cards undergo a proper custom treatment from the company's AIB partners (MSI included), Micro-Star International has announced at the Tokyo Game Show that they'll be launching yet another version of NVIDIA's GTX 1080 Ti graphics card. This new design revision picks up the triple fan design that has been the staple of MSI's Lightning series of graphics cards, and applies it to the Gaming X brand. The MSI GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X Trio will thus feature 3x of the company's Torx 2.0 fans. The card features a 2.5-slot design that exhausts the hot air to the inside of your case (a minor inconvenience, since MSI's graphics cooling designs are generally considered some of the best out there), and features MSI's Mystic Light RGB tech.
The Gaming X Trio maintains the 1080 Ti Gaming X's 2x 8-pin PCIe connectors, and features factory overclocking to 1569 MHz (base), 1683 MHz (boost) and 11124 MHz (memory). Display connectors stand at 2x HDMI, 2x DisplayPort and 1x DVI. The new Gaming X Trio is expectd to go on sale starting on October 12th, and should carry a price tag that's slightly higher than MSI's 1080 Ti Gaming X graphics card.

I'm ok with it. :D

Probably a 3 year warranty as usual.;)
Unlike PNY that doesn't give you any warranty anymore on your new graphics card.....

Ditch the weird fan housings too, please. Fans are circular.

That design is just too over-the-top for me. Too many odd angles, not enough coherency or harmony. And yeah, those kinda circular, kinda hexagonal fan frames? No thanks. Unless your build has a quasi-medieval fantasy armor theme, what exactly is it meant to go with? Asus' more minimalist approach (or even Zotac's, despite the yellow accents) is far better in terms of visuals.

Of course, this might be the best cooler yet forthe 1080Ti. Who knows?

I don't even know anyone with a PNY card. I think they can't afford RMAs anymore.

LOL, I love the picture how they make the card seem GARGANTUAN in comparison to the ASUS card.

Just ditch the red accents.
I personally like this colour scheme, its muted, and even if there are some red accents - they aren't that obtrusive as they used to be.

Understated monochromatic look with RGB is really the way to go I think.

Looks exactly like the ROG strix? Maybe I'm remembering incorrectly.

Where do you see an Asus card? That's an MSI Lightning in the background.

Wait, so they don't provide ANY warranty at all on gaming graphic cards? Gee, thanks miners...

What a monster, I can't wait to see how that would instantly take out the PCI-E slot on vertically mounted motherboards. Rip and tear. Pfft, who needs AIO mounted versions anyway.

Look very, very similar. So much that I thought it had just been debadged. I have looked at damn near all the 1080tis and read reviews it's easy to mix them up.

What the hell PNY, that is against EU laws. You are required to honor warranty RMA service at least for 2 years. :rolleyes:

Is there really a need for such a ridiculously oversized cooler on GTX 1080Ti ? I have AORUS which has a really massive cooler and it's total overkill. I see no reason for them to replace existing dual fan Gaming X models. It's not like GTX 1080Ti clocks any higher with such ridiculous cooler. Because it doesn't really.
