MSI Announces Massive GeForce GTX 1080 Ti GAMING X TRIO

At the Tokyo Game Show 2017 MSI is showing off a rather massive GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card, they are calling it the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X Trio. If you are familiar with MSI’s Gaming X series cards you know they’ve featured a dual-fan design for a very long time. Well as you might have guessed the Gaming X Trio will have three fans.

The fans will be three of MSI’s Torx 2.0 fans, with the two outer fans being larger and the inner fan being a little smaller. This design makes the card massive, even in comparison to MSI’s own GTX 1080 Ti Lightning card. It might actually be the largest GTX 1080 Ti out there!

The card is a 2.5 slot card and has a full backplate with the MSI dragon logo and an RGB LED bar (bottom), which of course can be controlled with Mystic Light. You’ll probably want to get a support bracket for this card!
