A Closer Look
MSI’s included all-metal GPU brace makes sure the massive card doesn’t sag and continues in MSI’s aesthetics.
Speaking of massive graphics cards, the RTX 2080 Gaming X Trio is a huge card. Besides the Duke series, the Gaming X Trio is the only other line of cards from MSI to feature a triple fan cooler featuring ZERO FROZR driven TORX 3.0 Fans.
The Gaming X Trio has 4 areas of lighting on the front of the card centered top and bottom between the fans.
The side of the card has MSI’s logo and dragon plus the GeForce RTX insignia.
And yes, it lights up as well.
The back plate is a beautiful gun-metal colored brushed aluminum plate.
The opposing patterns add a little something as do the cutouts.
The front end of the back plate has MSI’s logo painted over the brushed finish in a soft black.
MSI’s TORX 3.0 fans over the new wave-curved fins on the heat sink makes quite the striking combination.
Power is provided by twin PCIe 8-pin connectors.
The Gaming X Trio just looks spectacular in the dark.
