MSI to unveil GeForce GTX 1080 Ti LIGHTNING Z at Computex

Published: May 25th 2017, 07:50 GMT   Comments

MSI has just confirmed that new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards will be shown at Computex, including the highly anticipated LIGHTNING.


The new Lightning is said to feature a new three-fan cooler with TORX 2.0 fans (so just like Twin Frozr VI). In case you forgot, MSI’s triple-fan coolers are known as TriFrozr. We are also told that the GTX 1080 TI LIGHTNING Z will feature Mystic Light support. The RGB Light-ning? Why not. It’s no longer black and yellow, it’s black and whatever color you are about to choose.

The GTX 1080 TI LIGHTNING Z will probably follow the footsteps of the previous generations. We’re expecting many features for extreme overclocking and very high clocks out of the box.
