MSI GTX 1080 Aero Models Available For Sale Now
While originally announced during the GTX 1080’s launch, no one actually got to see the budget friendly variants of Nvidia’s latest flagship GPUs from MSI. Well we won’t have to wait any longer since MSI GTX 1080 Aero models have now suddenly been released.
The Aero family of MSI’s graphics cards will now be welcoming two new editions of GTX 1080 with black and silver sleek design. Both of these Aero GPUs will obviously be more simplistic in design compared to the Armor version while also being affordable.
The MSI GTX 1080 Aero will feature 8GB of VRAM, 1607 MHz of base clock speed and 1733MHz of boost clock. The other version, Aero 8G OC will feature 1632 MHz of base clock and 1771 MHz of boost clock.
Both these graphics cards feature a new thermal design, called Aero exhaust, built around a radial fan which pushes heated air out of the user’s PC through a rear exhaust. Unlike the older designs which released hot air inside the chassis this new design will keep other components cool.
Connectivity options remain the same for all versions although the Aero models are slightly smaller than Armor version. The Aero OC is being sold for around $790.
The GPUs also come with the MSI Gaming App which now features a function to optimize PCs for smooth VR performance. MSI also introduced the VR Boost Kit, which makes VR more user-friendly by making all the required connections for VR accessible in a single 5.25-inch front panel.
