MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Lightning smiles for the camera

Carbon fiber everywhere

MSI brought a lot of new toys to the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) this year, like several graphics cards based on latest NVIDIA chips. The company has finally unveiled also the flagship model which will be available in limited edition.


The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Lightning Z sports a rather big cooler with carbon fiber design with gold accents. At the moment isn't clear if the carbon fiber is just a sticker or if the entire GPU shroud is made out carbon fiber. On the cooler there are three Torx 3.0 fans with double ball bearings to provide the graphics card with active cooling. The middle fan lacks RGB lighting while the other two fans come with tiny RGB LEDs. Furthermore there is a carbon fiber backplate which gives the graphics card a premium feel.

According to the pictures, the card looks rather big and requires up to three PCI slots. The graphics card comes with a customized PCB with 19-phase power design and 60A power stages. On the GPU shroud there is even a small customizable OLED panel where users can monitor its vitals, such as the operating clocks, voltages, and temperatures. Regarding the I/O ports, we found three DisplayPort, one HDMI and one USB Type-C.

The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Lightning Z will be available during the next months but MSI hasn't revealed its pricing yet.
