In contrast to all the Stock Clocked GTX 1080's out there, including the Founder Edition Cards, the GTX 1080 GAMING X 8G outperforms them all because it comes Overclocked, right out of the box.
Compared to the Stock Base Clock of 1607MHz, the GAMING X 8G runs up to 1708MHz, 6.3% faster. The Boost Clock difference is 1733MHz vs 1847MHz, or 6.6% higher. Even better, with advanced Zero Frozr Cooling and Dual TORX Fans, there is still room for you to Overclock further, if that is your thing.
Note:Overclocking might damage your video card, which voids your Warranty; proceed with caution.
TORX 2.0 FANS
Just like in games, the exclusive MSI TORX 2.0 Fan technology uses the power of teamwork to allow the TWIN FROZR VI to achieve new levels of cool. TORX 2.0 Fan design generates 22% more air pressure for supremely silent performance in the heat of battle.
Double Ball Bearings
Double Ball Bearings give the unique MSI TORX 2.0 Fans a strong and lasting core for years of smooth gaming. They also remain virtually silent while spinning under load, keeping your graphics card cool during intense and lengthy gaming sessions.
Zero Frozr - Stays undetected Until 60° C
First introduced in 2008 by MSI, ZeroFrozr technology has made its mark and is now the industry standard among graphics cards. It eliminates fan noise by stopping the fans in low-load situations. This means you can focus on gaming without the noise of spinning fans.
When the GPU is under 60° C, the fans do not run so there is no Fan noise at all. Above 60° C, the Fan spins up and runs.
Each LED can be controlled individually by choosing any of the animation effects available in the MSI Gaming App, ranging from responding to your game sounds or music to steady light, breathing and flashing. Of course, you can also turn them off.
With 8 different LED Effects, you can control the Color of the Lightning Bolts around the outside Fan and MSI Logo on top of the card.
Lurking under the cover of the GAMING graphics card is an engineering masterpiece designed to keep the graphics card cool. Every tiny detail of the intricate heatsink plays an essential part in providing a cool & quiet gaming experience.
Airflow Control Technology
Using advanced aerodynamics, Airflow Control Technology directs more air directly onto the TWIN FROZR VI heat pipes. The special deflectors on the heat sink enlarge the surface area, which means lower temperatures and better gaming.
Smooth Heat Pipes
Up to 8mm thick copper heat pipes with a smooth squared shape at the bottom maximize heat transfer from the surface of the copper base plate.
To temper the heat generated by a powerful GPU, MSI GAMING series graphics cards use a solid nickel-plated copper base plate. The base plate catches the heat from the GPU and transfers it to the heat pipes for dissipation so you can keep cool.
Premium Thermal Compound
Every detail counts when it comes to creating the ultimate thermal design, which is why TWIN FROZR VI uses a premium thermal compound to make sure it outlives the competition.
Close Quarters Cooling
Below the heatsink you find the close quarters cooling which enables you to push the MSI GAMING card to the max.
Extra Power Input
A tailored PCB design higher performance and extra cooling comes with an extra 6-pin connector (compared to stock clocked GTX 1080s) allows for overclocking beyond previous limits
A powerful 10-Phase PWM design with High Quality Military Class components ensures extreme reliability and superb overclockablity and also enhanced efficiency, which all support stable, repeatable overclocking.
A powerful graphics card needs a strong build to harness its performance. MSI GAMING X graphics cards are fitted with a solid metal back plate to make it extra tough. The matte black finish completes the TWIN FROZR VI design to perfection.
Gaming enthusiasts are always looking for more performance to get the ultimate experience. Using multiple graphics cards in SLI or Crossfire is a great way to find out just how good it gets. MSI GAMING graphics cards fully support multi GPU technologies.
Enjoy the smoothest, fastest and most exciting gaming experience ever by eliminating screen tearing, display shutter and input lags.
4K UHD Gaming Support
Ultra-high resolution (UHD) delivers 4x the resolution of 1080p content, enabling much sharper and crisper images with delicate details during gaming. This GTX 1080 Video Card has the horsepower you need to play at 4K UHD, on supporting 4K Monitors and Televisions.
