Overclockers UK finally gave us more info about the fastest MSI’s GeForce GTX 1080 model, the GAMING Z.
MSI GeForce GTX 1080 GAMING Z
So what’s GAMING Z? Z is the faster variant of GAMING X, it has higher clocks and RGB backplate.
Apart from that we have the same card. In fact I wouldn’t be surprised if X was flashable to Z..
One thing that is not listed at OCUK website is memory clock, so we don’t know yet how fast is the Z’s memory. For comparison, GAMING X has 10108 MHz memory for OC mode. Here are all clock modes for both cards:
|MSI GeForce GTX 1080 GAMING Z||MSI GeForce GTX 1080 GAMING X|
|OC Mode||1911 MHz / 1771 MHz||1847 MHz / 1708 MHz|
|GAMING Mode||?||1822 MHz / 1683 MHz|
|Silent Mode||?||1733 MHz / 1607 MHz|
|Backplate||RGB Backplate||non-RGB backplate|
