MSI’s new GTX 1080 Ti Lightning Z has now been pictured by attendees of Computex 2017, revealing not only several aspects of the GPU’s design but also the GPU’s specifications.  

This new GPU will operate with three different clock speed modes, a silent mode which runs at Nvidia reference GTX 1080 Ti clock speeds, Gaming mode which runs at 1582MHz/1695MHz base/boost clock speeds and Lightning mode which runs at 1607MHz and 1721MHz.  All modes except for silent runs the GPU’s GDDR5X memory at 11120MHz

Below is a table that compared the specification of the GTX 1080 Ti Lightning Z and MSI’s existing GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X.

This new overclocking GTX 1080 Ti variant will come with 3 -8-pin power connections, which will be sure to allow this card to be supplied more than enough power under LN2 overclocking loads.

The MSI GTX 1080 Ti Lightning Z is expected to support RGB LED lighting, though at this time this has not been confirmed.
