It wasn't that long ago that news broke on MSI's new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti GAMING X TRIO graphics card, but we didn't know all that much about it. Well, now we do as I've received one of the first samples of it in the world, and it is currently being benchmarked and prepared for review.

For now, I thought I would cover the basics of the card before the full review is finished, as well as an unboxing and detailed look at the card itself. It's a new entry into MSI's continuously expanding range of custom GeForce GTX 10 series graphics cards, and I think it looks like one of the best, too. MSI has put a lot of design work into its graphics cards over the years, with it culminating in the pure enthusiast bliss that is the LIGHTNING range of cards.

 

 

MSI released GeForce GTX 1080 Ti LIGHTNING Z not too long ago, rocking its new TriFrozr cooler, with it being at the very top of their custom GTX 1080 Ti card heap. Just below that we've got the GTX 1080 Ti GAMING X, which has MSI's dominant TwinFrozr cooler. The latest card from MSI is their new GTX 1080 Ti GAMING X TRIO, which blends the worlds of GAMING X and LIGHTNING. We have a slick design that is similar to GAMING X, but with the beautiful RGB LEDs on the card. They really do look great in the right system.

 

 

GPU/VRAM Clock Speeds

 

GPU clocks change a little between modes, but the 11GB of GDDR5X is locked at 11Gbps on the Silent/Gaming Modes, while OC mode kicks it up to 11.1Gbps.

 

Silent Mode: 1480/1582MHz

Gaming Mode: 1544/1657MHz
