The graphics card manufactured by MSI is rightly tuned into GAMING edition. It will offer a redesigned cooler Twin Frozr VI, which has altered the vanes and improved bearings. The sum will ensure up to 35% less noise as much as 20% lower operating temperatures. Certainty is at least a 14% increase in performance compared to the basic Founders Edition.
NVIDIA's flagship delivers unprecedented graphical performance, now in 4K resolution.
The new Pascal GP104 chip, consisting of 7.2 billion transistors, runs at a considerably higher frequency compared to previous generations.
The card calculates multiple views of the same scene simultaneously, helping to achieve fantastic results in virtual reality applications.
The Pascal GP104 graphics chip features 2560 CUDA cores, accompanied by 160 texture units. The chip is clocked at 1607 MHz, though it reaches an impressive 1733 MHz with Boost Mode.
The GeForce GTX 1080 is expected to advance virtual reality rather significantly, also thanks to its completely new GDDR5X memory. A new manufacturing process enables it to reach faster throughput and the memory clock has skyrocketed to a stunning 10 GHz.
Generally, you can expect up to 3 times faster performance when using VR applications.
This graphics card rightfully belongs in the MSI GAMING series. It features a redesigned Twin Frozr VI cooler with tweaked fan blades and improved bearings. The improvements result in up to 35% less noise and 20% lower operating temperatures. It also offers a 14% performance increase compared to the basic Founders Edition. In Boost Mode the clock reaches an impressive 1847 MHz.
The Twin Frozr VI cooler is fitted with Zero Frozr fan technology that MSI first introduced in 2008. This technology stops the fans in low-load situations, eliminating fan noise and allowing you to fully focus on gaming.
The MSI Gaming App lets you optimise your graphics card's performance with a single click. Thanks to several profiles, you can always find the right one for maximum framerate or blissful silence.
Additional features also include the LED control tab, where you can change the colour of your MSI GAMING LED lights. The app is fully compatible with smart devices as well.
