Many of us are looking forward to Computex for one reason, next-generation graphics hardware, with most looking towards AMD for new information on Vega and perhaps an early look at aftermarket RX Vega designs. 
 
Today MSI has showcased two new GTX 1080 Ti GPU models, both of which will be making an appearance at Computex 2017, which included their new GTX 1080 Ti Lightning Z and GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X USB Type-C GPUs. 
 
Computex 2017 will mark the official return of the MSI Lightning brand, coming with a whole new design aesthetic and a lot of interesting new MSI technologies. Sadly MSI has not specified this GPU's "new technology", but we do know that this GPU will use a TriFrozr cooler design (pictured below) and include MSI's TORX 2.0 fans and support Mystic Light RGB lighting technology. 
 
The MSI Lightning is expected to come with higher clocks than any other reference GTX 1080 Ti GPU, though these clocks will likely not be revealed until Computex officially begins.

The second GPU that has been announced is the GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X USB Type-C, which comes with a USB Type-C display output to allow this new GPU to support additional high-resolution display types.

For the first time, I actually like an MSI graphics card design. Which is something new than their old and boring black and red theme.Quote

I think its too much like a Asus Strix. Its more or less just the fans there is different.Quote

Yes loved the Duke. Hopefully this one has the performance to match the branding. I loved the old lightning's - even if they were wasp coloured.Quote
