Got enough money for the best Nvidia chipset, but not a lot more? Want to save a few bills to keep your better half happy? MSI has the solution for y’all, and even upon close inspection, it’s not really much of a compromise.
We preview the MSI Armor GeForce GTX 1080 videocard, a step down from the all-conquering, multi-awarded Gaming X series also by MSI. The main difference between the two models is the cooling system and the out-of-the-box overclock, with the Armor having a tamer (but still better than stock) overclock of 1657MHz Core (1607 stock).
The Armor version still has some cutting edge tech going its way (other than the already cutting edge Nvidia chip I mean), with MSI’s “Zero Frozr” fans that only spins when needed, multiple heatpipes and an innovative heatsink design.
Underneath all of MSI’s high tech touches, the Nvidia 1080 chip is all there, in all of its glory, with 8GBs of advanced GDDR5x RAM, VR and 4K gaming capability, a lower TDP and thriftier power consumption, and the title “Most Powerful Graphics Card on the Planet”. So buyers plunking down P37,399 locally at MSI’s partner stores can do so with zero worries of not getting the best version – even this version is all the power you’ll need, and more. Stay tuned for the full comparison or review!
