A ‘Lightning version’ of GTX 1080Ti rolling out this year by MSI – The company’s best ever motherboard also lined up to be released

GTX 1080Ti Lightning Edition

As the Computex 2017 has passed, we’ve been amazed by the tech world’s fast-paced progress. MSI, however, is all set to provide this world with unmatched technologies either they are motherboards or graphics cards. After the huge success of Nvidia’s GTX 1080Ti, we are going to witness a more improvised version of it by the name of GTX 1080Ti Lightning edition. Also, a new GTX 1080Ti Gaming X with USB Type-C is going to accompany the Lightning edition’s release.

Upcoming GPUs

Among so many other upcoming offerings by MSI, we have noticed a GTX 1080Ti Lightning Z graphics card which will definitely be a ripper- thanks to its tried and true features. As mentioned on different forums, it will come along with the TriFrozr cooler with TORX 2.0 fans and Military Class 4 components. Also, the company plans to roll out a Gaming X 11G with USB Type-C support variant of the same graphics card.

Upcoming Motherboards

Aside from the GPUs, the company is taking up the motherboard challenge too! Updates suggest that MSI has plans to roll out a new X370 Gaming M7 motherboard. So this basically means a synergy between AMD and MSI to deliver a rocking platform for gamers. Other key features of the motherboard include:

  • 13-phase power design
  • Military Class 6 components and strong heatsinks
  • DDR4 Boost
  • Dual M.2 SSD support USB 3.1 and USB Type C

To keep the mainstream Intel alive and working with MSI, the company will be rolling out an Intel based motherboard named Z270. The board will surely be a performer because of the following specifications:

  • LAN E2500 ports for low latency gaming and unique bandwidth management
  • Onboard audio solution with an ESS DAC and two dedicated audio processors
  • 3 Turbo M.2 slots for extra storage and M.2 shield for extra cooling
  • USB 3.1 Gen2 and USB Type-C support
