MSI teamed up with Corsair to launch the GeForce GTX 980 Ti SEA HAWK, this model features a hybrid watercooling solution that uses the Corsair H55 closed loop liquid-cooling solution. The card has a 1190MHz base clock, 1291MHz Boost and 6GB GDDR5 memory clocked at 7096MHz. This compares to 1000MHz base, 1076MHz Boost and 7010MHz memory on the reference card from NVIDIA.
We hear the pricing will be around the $739.99 mark.
MSI, world leading manufacturer of gaming and overclocking hardware, is proud to announce the outcome of a unique partnership with Corsair at the Tokyo Game Show 2015. Combining MSI's expertise in graphics cards and Corsair's closed loop liquid-cooling solution, the GeForce GTX 980Ti SEA HAWK was born. This latest addition to the legendary MSI Hawk graphics cards family provides outstanding gaming performance at low temperatures and low noise levels.
The Best Cooling Performance For All Components
The MSI GTX 980Ti SEA HAWK utilizes the popular Corsair H55 closed loop liquid-cooling solution. The micro-fin copper base takes care of an efficient heat transfer to the high-speed circulation pump. The low-profile aluminum radiator is easy to install and equipped with a super silent 120 mm fan with variable speeds based on the GPU temperature. However, to get the best performance, the memory and VRM need top-notch cooling as well. Therefore, the GTX 980Ti SEA HAWK is featured with a ball-bearing radial fan and a custom shroud design to ensure the best cooling performance for all components.
Aluminum Heat Radiator
The advanced thermal solution, combined with high-quality components, enables the card to run at much higher frequencies compared to standard GeForce GTX 980Ti variants. The graphics core can reach up to 1291 MHz with GPU Boost 2.0 technology. The graphics card is also provided with 6GB GDDR5 memory at 7096 MHz. These specifications and the presence of NVIDIA G-Sync technology ensure a smooth gaming experience, even when using a surround setup with multiple high-resolution monitors.
