It's been a while since the GTX 1080 Ti cards were released, but the MSI GTX 1080 TI GAMING X is still very hard to get your hands on. You will probably need to pay an extra $200-$300 and buy it from a reseller - which makes the card not worth buying at the moment. See More
The MSI GTX 1080 TI GAMING X can play Gears of War 4 in 1080p with 178 FPS. It handles Battlefield 1 in 1440p with 136 FPS. Rise of the Tomb Raider runs in 2160p with an amazing 65 FPS. The card can run even the newest games in 2160p with an average FPS that's above 60. The card scored 10,062 in the 3D Mark Score(Time Spy) test. This is the highest score out of all the 1080 Ti cards. See More
Gigabyte Aorus GTX 1080 Ti Xtreme 11G has the best out of the box performance of all the GTX 1080 Ti cards. In addition to the FPS specs mentioned on the specification sheet, GTA V for example, runs at 83 FPS when played with Ultra settings and in 3840x2160 resolution. This card will not struggle with any game in the near future. See More
Compared to the Founders Edition of the Gigabyte Aorus GTX 1080 Ti Xtreme 11G, the cooling system has been improved a lot. The card doesn't go over 37 degrees Celsius when idling. When you play games, the card reaches 71 degrees Celsius. These temperatures are completely fine and won't cause any heat-related issues. In fact for a card this powerful the temperatures are amazingly low. See More
ASUS ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 Ti OC uses a cooling system with three fans, making it a bit louder than the usual GTX 1080 Ti with single or dual fans. The noise levels can reach 39 dBA under load and in a warm environment. If you overclock the card it will use higher voltage and you might want to use higher fan speeds. This would make the card even a bit noisier. Though the noise of the card will probably still not be anything disturbing, if you can hear it at all. See More
The card has amazing performance even amongst GTX 1080 Ti cards. If you wish to play aesthetically pleasing games like Gears of War 4, you can play it in 3840 x 2160 resolution with ultra high settings and still get around 60 FPS. From older games, GTA V will run at around 68 FPS depending on the rest of your setup. You will not have to upgrade your graphics card for years to come. See More
MSI GTX 1080 TI AERO 11G OC lacks in design compared to other GTX 1080 Ti cards. Even the other reference-type GPUs are aesthetically more pleasing. It also doesn't look anything like other MSI cards, which are usually packed with a bunch of awesome design features. See More
