MSI was the first AIB partner I wanted to see a custom GTX 1080 Ti from, and to my surprise - they were the first to send me a custom GTX 1080 Ti, so I spent my weekend benchmarking and writing my life away. MSI's new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X 11G is a monster of a graphics card, something I'm sure you'll be convinced of by the end of the review.


Until now, if you wanted a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, it had to be NVIDIA's own GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition - which is a kick ass card, but the custom PCB and overclocking ability of the MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X 11G is unmatched by the Founders Edition. MSI has put in some detailed work into the new card, with an improved cooler and new fans - all while keeping the GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X 11G completely silent under load.

You should be able to pick up the MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X 11G for around $749 in the US, a $50 premium over NVIDIA's own GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition.
