MSI has announced the launch of what it calls the “most powerful Turing-based gaming graphics card.” Featuring 11GB of GDDR6 memory at speeds of up to 16Gbps, the new GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Gaming Z Trio is MSI’s premium graphics card.
The company states that the new GPU has an over 5% performance boost right out of the box over the previous top-level card from the company, the Gaming X Trio, which had just 14Gbps of memory speed.
Next-level GPU power
The Gaming Z Trio is advertised by MSI to be the “ultimate form in custom GeForce graphics cards.” With the aforementioned 16Gbps of memory speed, the Gaming Z Trio can push out up to 704Gbps, marking an improvement over the base GeForce GTX 2080 Ti of over 14% in memory bandwidth.
For those of you who want to feel the flow, MSI’s Mystic Light RGB is present. It’s also pre-packaged with the Dragon Center optimization software along with MSI’s Afterburner software that allows quick and simple overclocking capabilities for the GPU. Cooling is handled via MSI’s Tri-Frozr cooling system with three Torx 3.0 fans, which takes advantage of the card’s larger size.
