MSI reveal GTX 1080 Gaming Z RGB Specifications

 

MSI has revealed the specifications of their GTX 1080 Gaming Z RGB GPU, offering base clock speeds that are much higher than their existing aftermarket GTX 1080 Gaming X GPU.  

Aesthetically this GPU looks very similar to the Gaming X, with the largest difference being that this GPU uses a different backplate design that offers RGB illumination. 

It is expected that this GPU uses the same PCB as the GTX 1080 Gaming X and is simply a higher binned GPU that can run at much higher clock speeds at stock.

Below are the specifications of a selection of MSI's GTX 1080 GPUs, with their current pricing at Overclockers UK. Each GPU will have a 3-year warranty. 

Sadly the memory clock speeds of the GTX 1080 Gaming Z have not been released, though it is expected that it will be higher than the GTX 1080 Gaming X. 

Right now the pricing for these GPUs is inflated across a lot of UK retailers due to supply issues. We recommend that buyers check out several retailers before purchasing a GTX 1000 series GPU in order to get a good price.

I wants it cos its got AAAR GEEE BEEEEZ... I can't wait for this tacky fad to end.

I long for the day where the GPU is engineered in such that the cooler appears on the top of the card when inside the case so we can see the nice fan designs. I know it does not bode well in terms of heat rising but I can dream!Quote

They're expensive, but these are nice cases for display builds:

I agree i'm really over this RGB s**t it needs to die, i have said plenty of times how hard is it to put a LED strip into the computer all it is that some people are getting lazy and they don't even want to put an LED strip into there computer.

People just need to give up on the "big 3" cause you all know there going to do stupid s**t like just need to look at other companies to don't put RGB's on everything.Quote
