The new Twin Frozr VI cooler delivers up to 22% more air pressure thanks to the Torx 2.0 design. The segments of the cooler shroud feature RGB lightning which can be configured using MSI’s afterburner utility. Since this is a fully custom card, there’s also a high quality backplate that goes on the back of this amazing card.

The front side of the PCB comes with a large base plate that ensures durability. For power connectivity, we can expect this card to feature dual 8-Pin connectors. We can also expect to see high-end Lightning GTX 1080 Ti models around Computex 2017. ASUS also revealed their custom GeForce GTX 1080 Ti GPUs yesterday which look stunning.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Specifications – Better and Faster Than Titan X (P) With 11 GB/s G5X VRAM, 484 GB/s Raw and 1.2 TB/s Supercharged Bandwidth

NVIDIA has gone all out with the specifications of their grandest graphics card to date. The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti features the same Pascal GP102 GPU featured on the Titan X (P) but is better than that in all ways possible. The NVIDIA GP102 Pascal GPU packs 12 Billion transistors and has 6 graphics processing clusters of which two are disabled. This adds up to a total of 28 SM units with 128 cores each. A truly OG chip designed for the ultimate gamer out there.

The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti features 3584 CUDA Cores, 224 Texture Mapping Units and 88 ROPs. These are clocked at a boost clock of 1582 MHz which can go as high as 2 GHz with overclocking. The Pascal cards are built to overclock like crazy and custom models will further boost the clock rates on availability day.

The card also features a 11 GB GDDR5X VRAM that run across a 352-bit bus interface. NVIDIA has shipped their flagship with the fastest G5X solution to date.

The Titan X (P) used 10 GB/s models while the 1080 Ti makes use of the new 11 GB/s memory chips which results in a cumulative bandwidth of 484 GB/s that’s going to be on par with SK Hynix’s HBM2 memory launching in Q2 2017.
