Looks a lot beefier than the 1080 GX.

This is the 2nd or 3rd aftermarket solution I've seen now that's 2.5 slots on the 1080Ti.

I wonder are they that much hotter that they need it - or is SLi becoming so uncommon now at this level that they're usually either run single only or waterblocked as a pair for the extreme enthusiasts?

edit - also most mobo's have extra spacing between x16 slots now too I guess

Most likely your 2nd point.

If they all get a 2.5-slot cooler design, then I'm totally interested in Inno3D's upcoming design

I think it's a mix of both.

The GP102 die is a fair chunk larger than the GP104 die so beefing up the cooling isn't a bad idea.

I had really hoped that the red would be gone by now and they just had a black card with the RGB's as this is gonna cost them sales

well most motherboards are a 3SLOT design so you can still SLI these cards with no problem. Its only the cards that had a quad SLI ability that allowed cards to be slapped next to each other.

Since the days of quad SLI are pretty much gone, they can design more beefy coolers.

Friend of mine was actually waiting for this card thinking MSI may have gotten rid of the red and gone with proper RGB's as putting a colour like red which sticks out like a sore thumb on a card with RGB's makes no sense.

Yep gotta agree with that, it is rather pointless, you'd think they'd have learnt by now huh

So tired of seeing this thing in red. I really am. I wish they could design it so that you can snap out the red parts and swap them for white, yellow, green etc. If XFX can make removable fans then MSI can make removable trims.
