Detailed Look

 

MSI makes some of the best-looking graphics cards available, and the new GTX 1080 Gaming X+ 8G is no exception.

From the front, it looks great with its Twin Frozr VI cooler - that red/black style never bores me.

The back plate is nearly the same as the GTX 1080 Gaming X 8G, but we have 'Gaming Plus' on this card.

MSI provides 3 x DP 1.4, 1 x HDMI 2.0, and 1 x DVI on the GTX 1080 Gaming X+ 8G.

As you can see from the bottom, the Close Quarters cooling is doing its job here - and we have a slick 2-slot design.

From the top, we have the MSI logo to the left, the heat pipes exposed at the top (be careful not to touch them under load!) and the 6+8-pin PCIe power connections.

We can also see the PWM heat sink from here, while the edge of the heat sink peeps out as well.
