We knew that the MSI is going to release the GTX 980 Ti Lightning in coming months as the company teased this beast before, back in June 2015. But the new report by HardwareLuxx confirms that the MSI is working for the GTX 980 Ti Lightning. The 980 Ti is under development and will be launched to counter the EVGA GTX 980 Ti K|NGP|N.

MSI GeForce GTX 980 Ti Lightning is specially designed for extreme Overclocking, where Overclockers use unconventional methods of cooling. The detailed specifications of the card are not yet known, but traditionally we expect core Maxwell GM200 and 6 GB of GDDR5 memory 384-bit, factory-raised clock and by the way pretty good potential for additional OC.
Card reportedly will be equipped with a new Duo Frozr cooling – as the name suggests, it will use two fans (not like previous version which was equipped with Tri Frozr cooling).
Premier of MSI GeFoce GTX 980 Ti Lightning can be expected in the next few days. Similar structures should also appear in the tender competition – in the case of a company ASUS will release a new version talking about Asus GeForce GTX 980 Ti DirectCU III STRIX and EVGA has also announced EVGA GTX 980 Ti Classified KINGPIN Edition.
The 980 Ti Lightning will feature better voltage supply and power heatsink, along with a high quality of VRM which will definitely allow Overclockers to utilize its full potential. According to the German MSI representative, the GTX 980 Ti Lightning will cost around € 900 and may hit the market by November. The starting models of GTX 980 Ti costs around € 650 (around 25% lower) than the 980 Ti lightning.
Lets wait for the MSI to share the word. Stay tuned for more!
