MSI RTX 2080 Ti Duke Graphics Card Review

A Closer Look
The Duke is one stunning looking graphics card. It features a huge triple fan cooler design, with three of their custom Torx fans cooling that massive heat sink.
The card features a lovely two-tone monochrome design too, with matte black and silver giving it a stylish design.
It should appeal to any gamer, and no doubt look great in virtually any system build.
That care uses a dual heat sink design, with heat pipes bridging the two. It exhausts out of all sides, rather than just the rear. Of course, so long as the heat gets away nice and quick, I’m happy.
The stock Ti uses a 6+8 pin configuraiton, however, this overclocked model uses 8+8 for improved stability.
You’ll find a huge backplate on the back of the GPU with some custom graphics. It’s big enough to cover the whole PCB. However, there’s another section at the back which is just plastic, covering the extended cooler design.
Finally, connectivity is looking good too, with triple DP, a single HDMI, and a USB Type-C. For hooking up multiple 4K/HFR/HDR/VR displays, you’re well taken care of.
