MSI prepares two GTX 1080 Ti Sea Hawk models

MSI unveils two new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Sea Hawk models

MSI has unveiled not one, but two new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Sea Hawk graphics cards - with the normal Sea Hawk, and the Sea Hawk X.


On the new GTX 1080 Ti Sea Hawk, we have a new cooler shroud - but the backplate is identical to the GTX 1080 Sea Hawk. MSI looks to have used the same custom Corsair H55 AIO cooler, with a reference PCB, and included DVI connector.

What's the difference between the GTX 1080 Ti Sea Hawk and Sea Hawk X? The Sea Hawk X has its GP102 GPU clocked at around 60MHz faster than the non-X model.

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
