There aren't many changes on the box work from MSI for the GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X 11G.

The same goes for the back, but we do get all the details that we need for the card.

The front of the card looks nearly identical to most of the previous GTX 10 series cards from MSI, and that's not a bad thing at all.

Sitting inside of the Core i7-7700K test bed, the MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X 11G looks great, with the two Torx Fan 2.0 fans doing their job.

As you can see, there is some 'GEFORCE GTX' branding on top of the card - but unfortunately, there are no LEDs to light it up. Boo, MSI.

Still, the card looks so freakin' awesome.

The two fans spinning up during load, yet it's still silent.

The heat sink is chunky as hell, with MSI's new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X 11G coming in as a 2.5-slot graphics card, compared to the 2-slot requirement of the GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition.

Dat chunk, yo.

MSI's new GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X 11G requires 8+8-pin PCIe power connectors.

The back of the card looks beautiful, with the black backplate - and the MSI dragon once again.
