MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Gaming X 8G

The folks over at Real Hardware Reviews have just published their review of the MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Gaming X 8G. Judging by the awards and the overall 4.5 out of 5 rating, I'd say they really liked this card. For comparison purposes, you can see our evaluation here.

As the name suggests the MSI 1080 Gaming X 8G is a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 card and is part of MSI’s ‘Gaming’ series. This generation however, MSI has released not one, not two, but three MSI 1080 Gaming models. The base model Gaming, the middle of the pack Gaming X 8G, and the top of the line Gaming Z. As such the Gaming X 8G is best described as having nearly all the advantages of the Gaming Z but at a price that is more in-line with the Gaming 8G base model.
