NVIDIA’s flagship GeForce® GTX 1080 is the most advanced gaming GPU ever created, powered by the high-performance, energy-efficient new NVIDIA Pascal™ architecture. Pascal enables truly game-changing performance with captivating sights and sounds, as well as next-generation VR performance that offers the lowest latency and plug-and-play compatibility with leading headsets.
NVIDIA Ansel Technology exclusive to 10 series allows you to grab a screenshot in supporting games such as The Divsion and upcoming Unreal Tournament from any 360 degree position, ability to increase resolution, use cool filters so that you can screenshot those perfect headshots and view them in a full 360 degrees.
NVIDIA VR AUDIO Works Technology exclusive to 10 series is interative audio so realistic path traced audio meaning sound bounces off objects just like it would in the real world further improving the gaming experience on the audio side.
NVIDIA GeForce 10 series is based on 16nm finfet architecture resulting in just 180W TDP power consumption for a graphics card that can outperform Titan X in many situations whilst being upto three times more efficient. Overclocking headroom is also exceptional with around 2GHz core overclocks being possible (not guaranteed) resulting in 20% and higher overclock potential.
NVIDIA Simultaneous Multi-Projection Technology renders multi screens in one path mean performance in Virtual Reality titles on VR headsets such as HTC Vive and Oculos results in double the performance of Titan X making 10 series the King of Virtual Reality and whilst being upto three times more efficient at the same time.

Awards & Media Coverage
"Somewhat unsurprisingly, the GTX 1080 Gaming X 8G is a highly desirable card. It's built with the world's fastest gaming GPU at its heart, and you get both a core and memory overclock to boot as well as a fantastic cooler with very low noise operation, cool temperatures and the ability to switch off when idle. The RGB LEDs add a bit of extra pizazz, and the backplate is another welcome addition. There's even a bit of extra headroom for further overclocking"Award
"The MSI GTX 1080 Gaming X 8G RGB is the Cameron Diaz of graphics cards – its a beauty. MSI continue to make the best looking graphics cards on the market. The Gaming X combines top drawer performance with effective cooling proficiency and the ability to hit 2ghz+ in MSI Afterburner without much effort."Award
