MSI GTX 1080 Ti Lightning Review



The MSI Lightning range of cards has always been excellent, does the GTX 1080 Ti version maintain this trend?

Yeah I can only guess at the hours you lot are putting in.

I was wondering how you never seem to get sagging cards no matter the weight? Or am I that blind? Because the Ti, and especially the lightning, is heavy! The triple bracket may help with this particular model I suppose.

Hurrah. Finally a Lightning card to make me drool as much as I did when the 480 Lightning came out.

Welcome back to ass kicking land MSI.

Will have to watch the video later today! You srsly know how to make people drool, Tom!

If I didn't have a 1070 already, this is what I'd be saving for right now!

I'd even keep the triple slot on if I had reinforced PCI-Slots already, lol

//EDIT: Just out of curiosity and because I'm not into power delivery and PSUs at all: could you also run this GPU with only 2 8-Pins connected? Maybe only in Game mode and not all the way up to Lightning mode? Also, did I miss the price tag on this monster?
