NVIDIA Turing™ Architecture
This revolutionary architecture, combined with our all-new GeForce RTX™ platform, fuses together real-time ray tracing, artificial intelligence, and programmable shading. You’ve never created and enjoyed games like this before.
Real-Time Ray Tracing in Games
Ray tracing is the definitive solution for lifelike lighting, reflections, and shadows, offering a level of realism far beyond what’s possible using traditional rendering techniques. NVIDIA Turing™ is the first GPU capable of real-time ray tracing.
GeForce RTX™ gaming GPUs come loaded with next-generation GDDR6 memory, support for DirectX 12 features, and more. This is graphics reinvented.
Built To Be Perfect
MSI’s reputation for excellent cooling is well known and continued by the new TRI-FROZR cooler. Using three TORX fans 3.0 on a huge heatsink ensures a cool & quiet experience for you. Besides, full carbon backplate with a heatpipe and thermal pads improves strength, prevents bending, and enhances thermal conductivity.
Phantom of Lightning
Using an innovative and unique design, the RTX 2080 Ti LIGHTNING provides a whole new level of visual customization. With the MSI Dragon Centre software, you can control the colours and also how many fan blades will be perceived. The fans not only dazzle you with vibrant colours and effects but also cool this beastly card in silence.
Keep an eye on clocks and temps in real-time or show off your own personal animations with this customizable OLED panel through Dragon Centre software.
Brilliant Display of Colours
Choose from millions of colours and predefined animated effects to customize your LIGHTNING or synchronize it with other RGB components in your system.
Reinforced Carbon Backplate
The full carbon backplate improves strength and prevents bending. It also enhances thermal conductivity for better cooling thanks to a thick heat pipe and thermal pads connecting the backplate to the PCB.
TORX Fan 3.0 with Double Ball Bearings
A brand new version of the iconic MSI TORX fan pushes the limits of thermal performance yet further than before. The new trims clearly visible on the traditional fan blade create a focused airflow which in turn is pushed down by the dispersion fan blades for increased static pressure. Double Ball Bearings remain virtually silent while spinning under load, keeping your graphics card cool during intense and lengthy gaming sessions.
Dispersion Fan Blades: Has a special curved blade which accelerates the airflow, increasing its effectiveness.
Mastery of Aerodynamics
Rugged-edge fins allow the airflow to pass through heatsink more smoothly, resulting in less noise. The airflow will hit on the long fins first, and bounce down to inner heatsink with lower air resistance and higher air pressure.
LN2 Mode Switch
The core ideology of Lightning is the ability to break world records, easily. With a single BIOS switch, your LIGHTNING card is ready for extreme performance, enabling you to unlock the limits of power, current and thermal.
Designed for Overclocking
Built from scratch and designed to deliver the highest stability when overclocking, the MSI LIGHTNING PCBs are the envy of the industry. This generation uses 19 of the industries’ highest rated DrMOS power phases as part of new groundbreaking Enhanced Power Design, delivering plenty of punch for stable extreme overclocking. Incredibly well designed, it doesn't require any external modifications to reach world-record breaking performance.
Pure Digital PWM Control
Pure Digital PWM Control enables accurate control and monitoring of power delivery to specific key components. Fine-tune each area to find for maximum performance and stability during overclocking sessions.
Multiple Temp Monitor
Monitor temperature of GPU/Memory/VRM through Afterburner, separate thermometer or probes are unnecessary.
MSI Afterburner is the world's most recognized and widely used graphics card Overclocking software. It gives you full control of your graphics card and enables you to monitor your system’s key metrics in real-time.
The latest version of MSI Afterburner features OC Scanner for RTX 20 series graphics cards. OC Scanner is an automated function that will find the highest stable overclock settings for your card. Giving you a free performance boost for a smooth in-game experience thanks to higher FPS.
A brand new software integrates MSI Components, Desktop Systems and Peripherals into one platform. Customizing your card's performance and controlling network settings are just a click away. Mystic Light which controls RGB LED effects can also be adjust in Dragon Centre.
