Does anybody else wonder why Armor?

I'd have tossed out that brand name years ago as soon as anyone realised that there is the whole Armour/Armor thing going on. They could have called it Shield or something.

Whenever I type anything to do with these cards I always need to double check to make sure it is spelt incorrectly (The UK spelling is Armour).

Because MSI always have to give their cards stupid names is why. I mean Duke?

Thanks for the review, guys. TBH AMD need to get their prices down.

Asian companies, and Asian market in general don't have the same concept of what "cool" is, compared to western world. Nor does everything translates especially well to english. It is much more obvious with companies that are predominantly focusing Asian market. It is literally a different world. I can give you an example of e-sports team names like Royal Never Give Up, or Detonation Focus Me. Those names have no logic for western world, but it is quite popular to combine words like that in China or Japan. So stupid for us doesn't mean they see it that way.

Well I for one am glad that MSI have listened to feedback from their customers and improved the cooling capabilities of their Armour cards as the Pascal coolers were pretty bad, whereas now those on a more limited budget can buy a card that will perform pretty well without getting too hot.
Thanks for the review!

I have a GTX1070OC version that came with a CyberPower PC, and its one of the best GPU's I have ever owned. It might not be the fastest of the lot, but it's dead silent and does a good job of holding its boost clock in a well ventilated case.

Rumours to be believed they are coming in at £499... which if true is just jokes!

EDIT: OK the MSI is £459 but here's jokes!! Just checked, £659 for the Strix!?! You'd have to be out your mind to think about buying one of these..
