Our quick unboxing and photos of the card are ahead of my full review which I'll write over the weekend. Performance wise, don't expect anything different from this card - it should compete with the GTX 1080 Ti GAMING X, and not reach the dizzying heights of the GTX 1080 Ti LIGHTNING Z.
MSI will be positioning this card for anyone who hasn't purchased a GTX 1080 Ti yet, and didn't want to wait to try and pick up the LIGHTNING Z, but didn't want to buy the now older GAMING X. Performance wise so far, we're seeing it fall right between the GTX 1080 Ti GAMING X and LIGHTNING Z cards from MSI, and that's not a bad thing.
I've got it installed in my current workstation rig, which is a Core i3-7350K/GIGABYTE GA-Gaming B8-based mid-range PC that I've been using for a week or so now. Even with the MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti GAMING X TRIO inside mixed with a lower/mid-range Core i3 processor, I can still play Battlegrounds at 80-100FPS average at 3440x1440 on Medium details. Not bad at all, but it's mostly thanks to that GTX 1080 Ti TRIO.
Inside, I've got a system with 16GB of ADATA SPECTRIX D40 DDR4 RGB RAM, which looks awesome mixed in with the Mystic Light RGB on the MSI GTX 1080 Ti GAMING X TRIO. I've also got Corsair RGB fans filling up the rest of my system with colors, and all I can say is that its memorizing.
Our full review on the MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti GAMING X TRIO will be up soon.
