MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Gaming X Trio & RTX 2080 Gaming X Trio Thermal Tests

No graphics card review is complete without evaluating its temperatures and thermal load. The MSI GeForce RTX 20 Gaming X Trio series is fitted with the most advanced version of the Tri-Frozr cooling design. The latest Tri-Frozr cooler features a massive heatsink with multiple heat pipes which extend beyond the aluminum fin-based design that lead towards the incredibly dense heatsink block. The card comes with PWM cooling and an anti-bending plate that keeps the card sturdy and durable in the harshest environments inside your PC.

The patented Torx fan 3.0 design and Zero Frozr technology featured on this card make sure that it delivers the best cooling performance and best acoustics while operating.
