MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti GAMING X TRIO

MSI’s packaging probably looks pretty familiar by now, the sleek black box is broken with a large colorful rendered image of part of the card inside. MSI’s logo is in the top left corner, the model under it on the bottom left, Nvidia’s normal model label on the lower right, and the GeForce and VR Ready logs on the top right.

The rear of the box is very busy with the cooling system taking up most of the space and some features and system requirements listed on the rightmost ¼ of the box.
