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.
The 1080 GTX SEA HAWK is the result of a revolutionary partnership that combines cutting-edge graphics card engineering and Corsair's manufacturing experience with water cooling. The Pascal chip is clocked at 1708 MHz, reaching 1847 MHz in Boost Mode. This gives your PC unreal performance, allowing it to run all games in 4K without a hitch.
The card uses the so-called closed loop liquid cooler (CLLC), which is completely maintenance free. It is also a hybrid radiator, which means that the card is also equipped with a fan, while the card itself looks like the reference version. The crucial difference is that there are additional two tubes connected to the radiator and its 120 mm fan. The cooler does the main heavy lifting, while the card fan is responsible mainly for cooling MOSFETs and memory.
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.
The chinese company MSI (Micro-Star International) has earned a solid place in the world of IT, mainly producing motherboards for desktop computers. However, it also produces high quality graphics cards, barebone computers, notebook computers, networking products, servers, and many other computer components. MSI products support the latest technologies and provide the performance necessary for all applications. Recently, the company has begun making a name for itself in the growing segment of gaming notebooks.
