MSI GTX 1080 Armor overview

  • 1Description

With a slightly overclocked core, dual TORX fans, and based on NVIDIA's Pascal architecture, the MSI GeForce GTX 1080 ARMOR 8G OC Graphics Card provides major improvements in performance, memory bandwidth, and power efficiency over its predecessor, the high-performance Maxwell architecture. It also introduces innovative graphics features and technologies that redefine the computer as the platform for playing AAA games and taking full advantage of virtual reality via NVIDIA VRWorks.

The front panel of the card features a variety of outputs. There are three DisplayPort 1.4 outputs in addition to an HDMI 2.0b output and a DVI-D Dual-Link output. The GTX 1080 is not just about high-resolution gaming. Computationally intensive programs can utilize the GPU's 1920 cores to accelerate tasks using CUDA or other APIs.

For cooling, MSI implemented dual TORX fans, which maximizes downwards airflow and air dispersion to the heat sink below them. This GPU also utilizes MSI ZeroFrozr technology to eliminate fan noise by stopping the fans in low-load situations.

VRWorks
VRWorks Graphics includes a simultaneous multi-projection capability that renders natively to the unique dimensions of VR displays instead of traditional 2D monitors. It also renders geometry for the left and right eyes simultaneously in a single pass.

VRWorks Audio uses the NVIDIA OptiX ray-tracing engine to trace the path of sounds across an environment in real-time, fully reflecting the size, shape, and material of the virtual world.

NVIDIA PhysX for VR detects when a hand controller interacts with a virtual object, and enables the game engine to provide a physically accurate visual and haptic response. It also models the physical behavior of the virtual world around the user so that all interactions -- whether an explosion or a hand splashing through water -- behave as if in the real world.
NVIDIA Ansel
With Ansel, gamers can compose the gameplay shots they want, pointing the camera in any direction and from any vantage point within a gaming world. They can capture screenshots at up to 32 times the screen resolution, and then zoom in where they choose without losing fidelity. With photo-filters, they can add effects in real-time before taking the shot. And they can capture 360-degree stereo photospheres for viewing in a VR headset or Google Cardboard.
SLI Ready
With a compatible motherboard and a connecting bracket, two or more NVIDIA GPUs of the same model can combine processing power using NVIDIA's Scalable Link Interface (SLI). How the cards work together can be customized to suit your preferences. Alternate frame rendering has each alternating card prepare the next frame, essentially multiplying the capabilities of a single card's maximum capable frame rate output. Each card in the configuration can also be used to improve anti-aliasing by being able to process an image in parallel with the other cards before filtering out jagged edges.

NVIDIA's SLI HB bridge doubles the available transfer bandwidth compared to the NVIDIA Maxwell architecture. Delivering smooth gameplay, it's an effective way to enjoy surround gaming and it's only compatible with the GeForce GTX 1080 and 1070 graphics cards.

Note: The benefits of SLI will vary based on component configuration.
CUDA
With CUDA, NVIDIA allows applications to hand off CPU-intensive tasks to the GPU. Your GPU is no longer just used for rendering graphics, but it can provide teraflops of floating point performance and accelerate application tasks, from real-time video rendering to fluid dynamics simulation. CUDA is used in many applications and games.
G-SYNC Ready
When used with a monitor that has G-SYNC hardware installed, the monitor's refresh rate will sync and lock with the graphics card's output frame rate. Establishing this sync removes tearing and stuttering which can result from conventional fixed screen refresh rates, especially important for gaming in stereoscopic 3D. An additional benefit of G-SYNC is reduced lag so gamers will benefit from the improved command response time as well.
NVIDIA GPU Boost 3.0
Boosts the card's clock speed in real-time based on the target temperature. If the card is running below the set target temperature, GPU Boost 3.0 will increase the clock speed to improve performance. The target temperature can be reset depending on your preference so you can have the card run more quietly for everyday tasks and older games, and run at full tilt during intense high-resolution gaming sequences.

    MSI GTX 1080 Armor reviews

    GeForce GTX 1080 ARMOR 8G OC Graphics Card is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! How nice!!I have nothing to say anymore! It is very higher when we buy in Japan shops.About 1000 over!!! But,I wanted to get like a GTX1080,so I bought this card by BH! So I thanks to BH,sent for Japan.It is very polite and safe packing. For Japanese,we should use this shop!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great I bought this because of the price/feature ratio. I run it in OC mode at 2.0 GHz core and 11.5 MHz on the memory and it stays at or below 70 C. She'll go slightly higher and stays stable but temperature goes above 70 C, which is my personal comfort level No backplate but it seems to be very ridged when installed in the case.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent 1080 especially for the price! Would buy again! This is a great card. Bf1 multiplayer with 90fov all settings maxed besides a few I keep lower for enemy visibility I have to cap @138fps to prevent tearing and it almost never goes under. Witcher 3 and rise of the tomb raider I get 85-120 in game (not benchmark) with everything maxed. I've seen the temp hit 72 for a split second but it usually hovers between 65-69 with the stock fan profile. The fans are audible during max load but even then it has to be a dead silent part of a game to notice. No backplate but the front has a plate that makes the card very sturdy. With the price I paid after rebate its a bargain at this time. I would buy it again if given the choice. Using with a 6700k @4.5 w/ 16GB ddr4 3200c14.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet cooler The cooler is very quiet, and I can't tell when the fans start to spin under load. I haven't tried overclocking beyond the factory settings, but I'm very impressed with the coolers ability to keep temps low enough to allow no or very light fan spin. This doesn't have a visible metal back plate, but it does have a reinforcement plate on the top site (heat-sink side) that keeps the board rigid.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Upgrade! The GTX 1080 Armor has been great. I don't game, but I do use GPU rendering out of Cinema 4d. With this card I replaced my GTX 660, so I have noticed a huge jump in rendering performance. Now that I have this card, I would love to see Adobe step up their game on utilizing the GPU for more rendering.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful GPU! Performs Great! Looks good, especially for a black and white themed build. Does not have a backplate though, that's the reason for 4 stars.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from very bad Encounter a problem with the graphics card flickering lines with a poor customer services from both MSI and B&H.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT 1080 AND at a great price! I recently upgraded to a 6700k and wanted a new card to go with it. Coming from a gtx780 is night and day. I now have to set a framecap @138 in bf1 with almost every setting on ultra or I get screen tearing on my 144hz monitor My fps is almost rock steady at the cap in multiplayer. The extra vram obviously helps a lot with being able to set texture quality to its highest but that isn't a problem with most current gen $250+ cards now. In game with Rise of the Tomb Raider or Witcher 3 on ultra I get 85-120fps which smokes my 780 which couldn't even run the games on ultra. All while never going over 71C which keeps my room quite a bit cooler than my 83C 780. The cooler seems great. Ive not noticed any coil whine at all but do have it in a fractal define c with no window. Lack of backplate doesn't bother me as most of them aren't even a positive addition beside aesthetically. This card is sturdy though as the cooler side is plated. If I had to buy a 1080 again right now I wouldn't hesitate to get this one again.
