The GTX 1080 GAMING X 8G has a new custom 10-phase PCB design, with an 8+6-pin power connector that allows for higher overclocking performance.

MSI also unveiled their new Sea Hawk variant, which uses Corsair's Hydro Series cooler, so that the card keeps as cool as it can, while providing crazy performance. Then there's also the Armor variant, which has a black/white design "inspired by advanced armor shielding". There's also the Aero variant, with a black/silver look, featuring a new thermal design and a radial fan that pushes the heat out of your PC through the rear exhaust.
