MSI has presented a stack of products they will be showing at Computex. Since we develop MSI AfterBurner, we already know about the Lightning. The new model will be called the Lightning Z and will see a few new voltage options as well.
In the press release MSI states the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Lightning Z graphics card combines groundbreaking new technology with proven features such as TriFrozr, TORX 2.0 Fan, Military Class 4 components and Mystic Light. Btw the photo that is brought into circulation at the usual leaking clickbait sites, is not accurate.
Next to that, MSI will also be releasing a GTX 1080 Ti GAMING X 11G Graphics Card with USB Type C connector. MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti GAMING X 11G features Pascal-powered graphics and MSI’s exclusive TWIN FROZR VI Thermal Design to deliver cool and quiet gaming graphics with unprecedented performance and power efficiency. With a USB Type C, the interface support is even more flexible. Some some monitors already offer the interface adn paired with a graphics card it can function and use a broad display protocols like passing DisplayPort, Thunderbolt and HDMI. So basically thunderbolt or any other USB-C configuration (DP, HDMI) for the display signal.
More next week.
