MSI has just released the first teaser showing a full family of products based on GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.

MSI GTX 1080 Ti Series to feature small redesign

It appears that GTX 1080 TI GAMING X will be quite similar to GTX 1080. Same applies to GTX 1080 Ti ARMOR, which features identical cooler to its predecessor. The MSI GTX 1080 Sea Hawk EK (with waterblock) gave us a glimpse of MSI’s first custom PCB for Big Pascal. A closer look reveals that we are looking at 6+8-pin power connectors, which is exactly the same as a reference design.

Meanwhile, the biggest change came to AERO series, which are now.. black and green. This will definitely differentiate AERO series from competition, but does it look good? Leave a comment below.

Lastly, the GTX 1080 Ti Sea Hawk (with AIO cooler) has slightly modified shroud. The AIO cooler made by Corsair was quite efficient on GTX 1070 SH we tested, I think it would still do a great job on GP102 GPU, but one could assume that new shroud indicates that more was done under the hood. In fact, those tubes are connected very close to I/O bracket, so close that I’m not sure if SLI would even work with HB bridge (but I think this is just a mistake by whoever made this teaser, though).

Thoughts? I think the lineup is quite solid. Each card will also get its own variants: overclocked and probably super overclocked (like GAMING Z), and in few weeks.. maybe months, we get to see the Lightning, hopefully.
