    The pricing of Gaming is unjust.

    I take it only the one with the garish red and black cooler has the 12-phase PCB then? A bit confusing because the PCB photo seems to show 8+2.

    YES Finally a hybrid cooled one!

    Any news on MSI GeForce® GTX 1080 SEA HAWK release date?

    The TWIN FROZR VI looks so good!

    Normal "founders edition" PCB looks so cheap compared to this.. 1070 even more..


    This custom Msi PCB & 10 vrm appears 2x better, also extra 1x 6pin will help for sure to stabilize gpu frequency.
    I think up to 2.1 - 2.2Ghz could be doable anything more is probably chip limit, unless with special cooling and volt mod.

    I played with more than one MSI 980 Ti Twin and compared to other custom boards every MSI was top notch and had ZERO coil whine. I expect that to continue here. MSI doesn't cheap out on board design and components.

    And I never needed to run fan above 65% to keep temps within 70c range.

    No Lightning series model this time?

    Maybe 1080Ti will get it...

    Wish I wouldn't look at these, it's really making me want to buy a 1080 even though I don't plan to. So the cheapest MSI is £550:puke2:

    True!

    I'm getting old and didn't remembered my Lightnings came relatively late to the party. :)

    According to TPU the Twin Frozr isn't quiet at all (37 dB) compared to the 29 dB Lightning Cooler with 3 Fans.

    Quote "A completely new custom 12-phase PCB design using Military Class 4 components with an 8+ 6-pin power connectors enables higher overclocking performance to push your graphics card to the max." Frozer version for overclockers.

    That Aero version for £534 is enticing though.

    MSI Gaming with the Twin Frozr just got listed here in Norway, roughly $60 more expensive than the Founders edition.
    For that price you can buy 2x used 980Ti cards. Insane.

    I wonder where do you draw the line before people stop buying new cards with prices increasing all the time.

    It's a mistake in the press-release, MSI just confirmed that. It is 10 phases in total.

    I don't suppose the hybrid cooler also cools the VRMs? I never understood why they leave the cooling for those on air for most hybrid solutions.
