MSI NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 8GB GAMING RGB Graphics Card
Teamwork for Greater Strength
Just like in games, the exclusive MSI TORX 2.0 Fan technology uses the power of teamwork to allow the TWIN FROZR VI to achieve new levels of cool.
TORX 2.0 Fan design generates 22% more air pressure for supremely silent performance in the heat of battle.
Dispersion Fan Blade
Has a steeper curved blade which accelerates the airflow, increasing its effectiveness.
Double Ball Bearings
Double Ball Bearings give the unique MSI TORX 2.0 Fans a strong and lasting core for years of smooth gaming. They also remain virtually silent while spinning under load, keeping your graphics card cool during intense and lengthy gaming sessions.
Zero Frozr-Stay Undetected
First introduced in 2008 by MSI, ZeroFrozr technology has made its mark and is now the industry standard among graphics cards. It eliminates fan noise by stopping the fans in low-load situations. This means you can focus on gaming without the noise of spinning fans.
Catch the Vibe with Cool LED Effects
Each LED can be controlled individually by choosing any of the animation effects availiable in the MSI Mystic Light, ranging from responding to your game sounds or music to steady light, breathing and flashing. Of course, you can also turn them off.
Lurking under the cover of the GAMING graphics card is an engineering masterpiece designed to keep the graphics card cool. Every tiny detail of the intricate heatsink plays an essential part in providing a cool & quiet gaming experience.
Airflow Control Technology
Using advanced aerodynamics, Airflow Control Technology directs more air directly onto the TWIN FROZR VI heat pipes. The special deflectors on the heat sink enlarge the surface area, which means lower temperatures and better gaming.
Smooth Heat Pipes
Up to 8mm thick copper heat pipes with a smooth squared shape at the bottom maximize heat transfer from the surface of the copper base plate.
Enhanced PWM Design
A 10-Phase PWM design with High Quality Military Class components ensures extreme reliability and superb overclockablity and enhanced efficiency.
Perfection in 2 Slots
Where other cards can take up to 3 expansion slots of space, the TWIN FROZR VI only takes up 2 expansion slots. This prevents unnecessary blocking of PCI slots on your motherboard, is better for SLI setups and improves overall airflow through the case.
Fits in Any Build
With a maximum length of 27.9cm, the MSI GAMING graphics cards will fit in almost any regular sized PC case without a problem.
Gaming enthusiasts are always looking for more performance to get the ultimate experience. Using multiple graphics cards in SLI or Crossfire is a great way to find out just how good it gets. MSI GAMING graphics cards fully support multi GPU technologies.
The Future of Gaming
The smoothest, fastest and most exciting gaming experience ever by eliminating screen tearing, display shutter and input lag.
Ultra-high resolution (UHD) delivers 4x the resolution of 1080p content, enabling much sharper and crisper images with delicate details during gaming.
