MSI today launched the two other custom-design GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards apart from its Gaming X series, the GTX 1080 Ti Armor series, and the GTX 1080 Ti Aero series. Both lines further have variants that are factory-overclocked, and ones which stick to NVIDIA reference clock speeds.

The GTX 1080 Ti Aero will be MSI’s cheapest GTX 1080 Ti offering, it may even┬ásell on-par with NVIDIA’s $699 Founders Edition SKU. It features a blower style cooling solution that pushes hot air out of the case, much like the reference-design cooler. Unlike previous Aero GPUs from MSI the new 1080 Ti has been given some NVIDIA green to brighten it up though. ┬áThe base GTX 1080 Ti stays with NVIDIA-reference clocks of 1480/1582/11000 MHz (core/GPU Boost/memory), while the OC variant ticks at 1506/1620 MHz, leaving memory speeds at stock.

The GTX 1080 Ti Armor is a rather more fancy card. Part of MSI’s Gaming family, the Armor series cards sit in the middle of the Aero series and the Gaming X series. With an aluminium fin-stack heatsink that’s ventilated by a pair of fans that will even shut down when the GPU is idling. The GTX 1080 Ti Armor sticks to NVIDIA-reference clock speeds, while the Armor OC variant does 1531/1645 MHz out of the box. This is only a little behind the 1569/1683/11200 MHz the top end Gaming X ships with.
