Introduction & Tech Specs

NVIDIA surprised everyone with refreshed GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1060 graphics cards, ramping up the 8GB of GDDR5X on the GTX 1080 up to 11Gbps, the same speed the 11GB of GDDR5X is clocked at on the even faster GTX 1080 Ti. As for the GTX 1060, NVIDIA pushed the 6GB of GDDR5 RAM up from 8Gbps, to 9Gbps - an even stronger competitor to the lukewarm Radeon RX 580 from AMD that was just released.

NVIDIA's surprise shift with the upgraded GeForce GTX 1080 and its 8GB of GDDR5X being clocked up to 11Gbps was a strange move, but there's definitely a nice performance bump - and when you mix this with custom GTX 1080 8GB 11Gbps cards, we have a pretty decent offering between the GTX 1080 and GTX 1080 Ti.

MSI was the first AIB partner to get one of the new GTX 1080 8GB 11Gbps graphics cards to my GPU labs here in Australia, with their MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Gaming X+ 8G. It retains the awesomely-styled Twin Frozr VI cooler, with tweaked clocks on the GPU and the faster 11Gbps GDDR5X RAM.

Tech Specs

There are two different GTX 1080 11Gbps graphics cards that MSI offers, with the GTX 1080 Gaming X+ 8G being the fastest of the two. To be confusing, MSI names them both GTX 1080 Gaming X+ 8G, but there's a fairly large difference between them:

Here's the chart for the five different GTX 1080s that MSI makes, with the Gaming X+ 8G becoming the best GTX 1080 that MSI makes. The previous Gaming X 8G has the same GPU clocks, with 1708/1847MHz on base/boost, respectively. But, the older Gaming X 8G has its 8GB of GDDR5X at the 'old' clocks of 10Gbps, while the new Gaming X+ 8G has its 8GB of GDDR5X at 11Gbps.

Cooler Tech

Twin Frozr VI FTW

Any regular TweakTown readers will know that I love MSI's cooling technology, and their new GTX 1080 Gaming X+ 8G rocks the same Twin Frozr VI cooler that the normal GTX 1080 rocked, as well as the faster GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X 11G graphics card from MSI.

MSI places an engineering masterpiece (their words, but it is damn good) underneath every Gaming series card.

MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Gaming X+ 8G (11Gbps) Review 401 | TweakTown.com

There are 8mm-thick heat pipes underneath, maximizing heat dissipation into the fans.

MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Gaming X+ 8G (11Gbps) Review 402 | TweakTown.com

MSI uses 'premium thermal compound' on the GPU baseplate of their Gaming series graphics cards.

MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Gaming X+ 8G (11Gbps) Review 403 | TweakTown.com

Underneath the heat sink is MSI's Close Quarters cooling, with a memory cooling plate for the super-fast GDDR5X modules, as well as a PWM heat sink with micro fins to keep the end of the card cool.

MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Gaming X+ 8G (11Gbps) Review 404 | TweakTown.com

MSI uses a custom PCB on the GTX 1080 Gaming X+ 8G, with a larger PCB for the bigger cooler, and the additional 6-pin PCIe power connector that allows for 75W more through the card.

MSI takes a stab at ZOTAC with their 'perfection in 2 slots', but they're right - unless there's a massive shift in temperatures or performance, there's no reason for 2.5/3-slot graphics cards.

MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Gaming X+ 8G (11Gbps) Review 16 | TweakTown.com

MSI continues using its Twin Frozr VI on the new GTX 1080 Gaming X+ 8G. It includes a custom PCB and backplate, Torx 2.0 fans, and the LEDs at the top that you can customize through software.

MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Gaming X+ 8G (11Gbps) Review 17 | TweakTown.com

MSI uses its Torx 2.0 fans and their unique design to lower temperatures and air pressure, keeping the card as silent as possible during load.

MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Gaming X+ 8G (11Gbps) Review 18 | TweakTown.com

The fans won't spin at anything less than 60C, meaning that it's totally silent until it's under full load. Today's graphics cards almost spoil you.

MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Gaming X+ 8G (11Gbps) Review 19 | TweakTown.com

The LEDs on top of the GTX 1080 Gaming X+ 8G can be configured, with different styles and colors - tweak until your heart's content.

Detailed Look

MSI makes some of the best-looking graphics cards available, and the new GTX 1080 Gaming X+ 8G is no exception.

From the front, it looks great with its Twin Frozr VI cooler - that red/black style never bores me.

MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Gaming X+ 8G (11Gbps) Review 02 | TweakTown.com

The back plate is nearly the same as the GTX 1080 Gaming X 8G, but we have 'Gaming Plus' on this card.

MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Gaming X+ 8G (11Gbps) Review 03 | TweakTown.com

MSI provides 3 x DP 1.4, 1 x HDMI 2.0, and 1 x DVI on the GTX 1080 Gaming X+ 8G.

MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Gaming X+ 8G (11Gbps) Review 04 | TweakTown.com

As you can see from the bottom, the Close Quarters cooling is doing its job here - and we have a slick 2-slot design.

MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Gaming X+ 8G (11Gbps) Review 06 | TweakTown.com

From the top, we have the MSI logo to the left, the heat pipes exposed at the top (be careful not to touch them under load!) and the 6+8-pin PCIe power connections.

We can also see the PWM heat sink from here, while the edge of the heat sink peeps out as well.

Performance Analysis & Final Thoughts

Performance Analysis

For the performance side of things, comparing MSI's faster GeForce GTX 1080 Gaming X+ 8G against NVIDIA's own GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition - and not the GTX 1080 Ti, MSI wins at 1440p with an additional 10% or more frames per second.

In games like Rise of the Tomb Raider, the MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Gaming X+ 8G was pushing 103FPS average, compared to 90FPS on the GTX 1080 FE. In Far Cry Primal, we're looking at 86FPS average compared to 79FPS on the GTX 1080 FE. For 1440p monitor owners, the MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Gaming X+ 8G is capable of 100FPS+ in some of the best-looking games, so eSports games like Overwatch, Rocket League and others will easily run at 144FPS+ for high refresh rate monitor owners.

Gaming at 4K is something you can do on the MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Gaming X+ 8G, with the same 10%+ additional performance over the GTX 1080 FE at 4K. With a few details adjusted, you could easily hit 60FPS at 4K - but games like Ghost Recon Wildlands runs at 32FPS average at 4K, on Ultra settings.

Final Thoughts

If you didn't pull the trigger on the GeForce GTX 1080 a few months ago, and can't afford the $699+ for the new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, then the faster GTX 1080 with its 8GB of GDDR5X clocked at 11Gbps is a great choice. It offers up to 10% average more performance over the stock GTX 1080 Founders Edition, while MSI's custom GeForce GTX 1080 Gaming X+ 8G is silent until it hits 60C, and barely makes noise when it's under load.

The faster 8GB of GDDR5X @ 11Gbps can be overclocked as well, with our card hitting 11,600MHz without much hassle at all. We were hitting a maximum of 69C, which is thanks to MSI's great work in the Twin Frozr VI cooling technology.

For gamers with 1440p or 34-inch 3440x1440 UltraWide displays, the MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Gaming X+ 8G is a great choice if you don't want to spend $500 or more on a GTX 1080 Ti. You'd have to drop the in-game visual details down to hit 60FPS+ at 4K, or 60-100FPS+ at 1440p/UltraWide - but you save $200 or more from the GTX 1080 Ti's higher cost.

At the end of the day, MSI continues filling out its GeForce GTX 10 series of graphics cards with great releases - the new GTX 1080 Gaming X+ 8G is a testament to that. We have slightly more performance than the GTX 1080 FE, near silent operation, the same Gaming X styling as MSI's other cards - and great performance. 4K gamers might want to cling to the GTX 1080 Ti, but 1080p/1440p/UltraWide gamers should consider MSI's GeForce GTX 1080 Gaming X+ 8G for their gaming needs.

The Bottom Line: MSI fills out its GeForce GTX 1080 line up with the new and improved GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X+, with its 8GB of GDDR5X clocked up to 11Gbps providing a nice bump in performance over the stock GTX 1080 with 10Gbps memory.
