Introduction and Technical Specifications

MSI RTX Gaming X Trio 2080 and 2080Ti Preview


We know that everyone is eager to see what the new nVidia GeForce RTX cards have to offer when it comes to performance, but you'll have to wait another couple of days yet to discover if they are worth your hard-earned cash.

In the meantime we can bring you some pictures to lust over and first up we have the pair of MSI RTX Gaming X Trio cards in both 2080 and 2080Ti flavours for your delectation. No matter how much effort nVidia themselves put into the design of their reference cooler we know that for a lot of you the partner cards are the ones that will find homes in your systems, and indeed are the ones that you covet the most.

Whatever you may feel about other products in the MSI range, there is no doubting at all that their range of graphics cards have always been spectacular in performance terms, and cool and quiet with their Frozr cooler. Indeed it's from their Tri-Frozr cooler than this pair of cards gains their name, with both the 2080 and 2080Ti sporting three fans and a revised heatsink fin design to go along with their monochrome looks and RGB lighting.

But enough blather, you want to see them and we want to show them to you, so let's crack on.

Technical Specifications

We don't want to take the risk of upsetting nVidia pre-launch by going into too much detail here, so just peruse these for the moment and we'll delve into more depth when we can also indicate how these particular bits and bobs affect performance.

That looks one beast of a cooling solution , interesting choice to have one smaller fan on one end , i guess so the NV link fits flush to the card rather than sitting proudQuote

Somehow I like the cooler design, but then again the asymmetric design is making my head spin when I see it, LOL.Quote

As much as I love MSI stuff I still wish they'ed effing stop putting red on their cards it's totally unnecessary sure you could argue it's only small but still it shouldn't be there or the gold dragon for that matterQuote

Been up since 5 with a sore throat, but getting in some headphone/music time before the deliveries start (big day today). Will watch this at 8am when I am back on the speakers

I must say though I like this card the best. Mostly because I have a good idea of how hot RTX will be when RTing so the bigger the better.Quote

beautiful cooler. Slightly spoiled by the red and the gold dragon on the side, which is pretty much what would be visible when in a case Gonna have to mod that part away.Quote
