MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X Package
The MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X comes in a large rectangular box. MSI uses an all red color theme to package their Gaming series products and they have become renowned for it. The front of the package features a stylish picture of the Twin Frozr VI embedded card which looks great.
The back side of the box contains overview of the various features along with the graphics cards specs. Some key information about MSI's custom LED Lighting through their Mystic LED system is displayed on the box. There’s also detailed overview of MSI's Twin Frozr VI heatsink and MSI's Gaming App.
Features such as DirectX 12, Gameworks, Ansel and VRWorks are labeled on the front along with MSI Gaming X, VR Ready, DirectX 12 and 11 GB GDDR5X memory marketing logos. The new GeForce 10 series graphics are also fully compatible with NVIDIA GeForce Experience technology allowing for on-the-go Game-Ready driver updates, Optimized Game Settings and the ability to Capture, Share, Screenshot and broadcast games.
Accessories in the package come in two separate sections. The foam packaging contains a compartment which includes a dual 6-Pin to single 8-Pin molex connector. A nice MSI golden card welcomes you as the box is opened for the first time. This contains additional accessories.
The accessories included in this card are a Quick User Guide, MSI stickers for different features, a "Lucky The Dragon - Computer Workshop" comic and a Thank You card by MSI.
The comic is really fun to read and a nice addition by MSI. Lucky has become MSI's Gaming product mascot and they sell stuffed toys and figures of this comic in various regions where Lucky is very popular.
Out of the box, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X is one huge graphics card. It’s tremendous in size and we can also expect the same in terms of performance. That’s about it as far as the package is concerned and we move over to the unboxing section where we will get a detailed look at the card and other aspects of the product.
