MSI uploaded a teaser video that showcases its upcoming GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Lightning Z. This new flagship card features a new, custom PCB and is cooled by a next generation Tri-Frozr cooler. It's quite a beast, it draws power from three 8-pin PCIe power connectors, is over 300mm long, takes up almost 4 slots and features some RGB LED lights.

TPU saw the card at Computex and says it will feature a 1582MHz default core, 1695MHz Boost, and GDDR5X memory clocked at 11.12GHz. By activating the "Lightning" mode in the MSI software, users can overclock the card's core to 1607MHz and the Boost to 1721MHz. Expect this flagship to cost around $1,000.
