Let's start with our photo-shoot. A few pages that show the ins and outs with photos, all taken with an in-house photo-shoot of course. The unboxing experience is really nice, a drawer style box with all the gadgets and gear including voltage measurement cables (DMM) and should you need to move around the PC for say a LAN party, you could use the included metal strut to really secure the card painted in black and the lightning style.



The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti powered by the Turing TU102 graphics processor and GDDR6 memory managing an effective data-rate of 14 Gbps. The product will start selling for roughly 1450 euros, in the USA you are looking at or just over 1399 USD. The card has incredible looks with that new all dark and gold design complemented with a massively impressive RGB solution. You can configure everything and anything with MSI software (MSI Dragon Center) of course. The card is based upon a nice matte black PCB and uses three (!) power headers (8-pin), for a little more overclocking headroom.





The model has a triple-fan design based on a new revision of their TORX fan. New trims clearly visible on the traditional fan blade create a focused airflow which in turn is pushed down by the dispersion fan blades for increased static air pressure. The card has one HDMI port and three DisplayPort connectors as well as a new virtual link connector for VR purposes. The GeForce RTX series has DisplayPort 1.4 connectors 1.4a Ready, enabling support for 8K displays at 60Hz. This card includes three DisplayPort connectors, one HDMI 2.0b connector, lacking and sorely missed is the dual-link DVI connector.  

  • Boost: 1,770 MHz / Base: 1,350 MHz
  • Memory 1350 MHz GDDR6 (=14 Gbps effective data-rate)
