MSI's GTX 1080 Gaming X is an overclocked, custom-design variant of the GTX 1080 that doesn't throttle. Its fans are also nearly inaudible in heavy gaming, switching off completely while the card is cool for zero noise output in idle and light gaming.

@W1zzard , I don't know if this has been requested yet, but if it's not too much trouble, can we get screenshots of graphics settings for each game in their respective pages? If settings remain similar for each review, you can reuse them for future reviews as well. Thank you.

Great card, btw. Hope this cooler makes it to the GTX 1060 as well.

Yeah I guess I can look into that for the next round of rebenches (not until after AMD RX launch I think)

MSI has done it again. 9.8

The price right now is too high imo but I have expected delays in GPUs since going to 16nm. Maybe the price will come down in a few months or maybe aftermarket GPUs are going to be more expensive in the future. Hope not.

Ok, price is totally beyond my willingness to spend despite this being a killer card, and the particular model I desire. Now it's time for me to be realistic.

Since I plan on staying on my 1080p IPS monitor for 2 years, I'll be finding a new MSI 980Ti on clearance sale or buy a used one. The increased GPU power, bandwidth, and 6GB of VRAM will be plenty for the foreseeable future while I still have that monitor.

Serious question, is there anything legitimately new about the sli hb bridge device, or does a double old bridge work?

Thank you for the review W1zzard. ^_^

It's a fantastic card, I can't wait to see the reviews coming in for the 1070 versions of the MSi and EVGA cards. :)

As I understand it; you get more bandwidth with the new bridges, translating to more performance. You can still use the old SLi bridges, albeit at reduced bandwidth.

*Edit*
I would like to know just how much of a difference it will make though, would be interesting to see. :)

Yup, VGA can't do 4k anyway. I don't think it can do 2560x1440 at a decent refresh either...
@W1zzard: "NVIDIA Pascal is introducing a new voltage controller by uPI, the uP 9511P. It's the first time I see this model, so I don't know what features it provides." <- I'm pretty sure this is the third time you've said this.

It think you should mention it in the "cons" that it is gigantic. Wont fit a lot of itx cases.

Unfortunately for itx owners, seems like most custom cards this generation are very wide. Seems I will have to go back from a Ncase to my big old prodigy... :(

Yeah I guess I can look into that for the next round of rebenches (not until after AMD RX launch I think)

Screenshots ... or pretty blue tables that I like so much, with minimal information like ... Preset - Ultra, Extra - AF:16x, AA:4x, VSync:Off, Hairworks:Off ... neatly formatted with grouping and all

I'm honestly disapointed. Overclocks worse than FE despite moar power, and dat price! :eek: The cooler is nice, but still.

Also definitely not liking that the FE seems to be the baseline pricewise. So far anyway. :shadedshu:

Another epic MSI card and the one I would get if I was in the market. I've got the MSI GTX 780 Ti Gaming which had a similarly fantastic review.

It's horribly expensive though at £650, which is a bit more than the Founder's Edition cards.

Also definitely not liking that the FE seems to be the baseline pricewise. So far anyway. :shadedshu:
Yeah, it was obvious that was going to happen. :shadedshu: NVIDIA's got no competition from useless AMD though so they can get away with it. Their new Polaris cards better be something special.

ooookay SEND ME YOUR CURRENT 980 ASAP (aka: once you've got a Ti)! 4gb is still enough now ... ;) (jk jk )

no thanks nvidia, this year will either be RED or SLI for me ... (if 980 seller don't brainfart as they usually do with nvidia ... i mean, come on ... i saw a 6month used Titan (non XYZ) for 1400chf ...recently, and when you ask the seller about the price the answer is almost a "it's a nvidia card STFU it's the regular price for 2nd hands, they do not loose value over the years passing" ... my @$$ )

Yeah, not a huge improvement over FE. I'm over it. :)

I'm going have to hold off on the 980Ti for awhile too. It's time to see what kind of overclocking I can do to maintain 980 performance. In truth, where I'm at, you're probably right. 4G will "mostly" be enough. *I do have a few games that come close to filling it tho. :rolleyes:

Benchmark Scores bench...mark? i do leave mark on bench sometime, to remember which one is the most comfortable. :o
Yeah, not a huge improvement over FE. I'm over it. :)

I'm going have to hold off on the 980Ti for awhile too. It's time to see what kind of overclocking I can do to maintain 980 performance. In truth, where I'm at, you're probably right. 4G will "mostly" be enough. *I do have a few games that come close to filling it tho. :rolleyes:
bah if i get into that zone of "slightly" above 4gb (at last it's not "slightly above 3.5 and poof fps drop and stuttering :roll: ) i will seek a RX480 if they do it in 8gb and probably get 2 of them for the resale price of my 980 :laugh: (unless i win a second 980 too ;) althought i wil still be at 4gb, but in SLI this time :roll: )

PS: MSI 1080 Gaming X 8gb where i live : 889chf (919.96$) .... sooo 719$ ... nope nope nope ...
