In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti ASUS ROG STRIX 11GB are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti MSI Sea Hawk X 11GB.

The GTX 1080 Ti has a 13 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GTX 1080 Ti. This results in the GTX 1080 Ti providing 2.9 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 1080 Ti has a 13 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 1080 Ti and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 1080 Ti providing 1.1 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

Both the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti MSI Sea Hawk X 11GB and the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti ASUS ROG STRIX 11GB were released at the same time, so are likely to be quite similar.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti MSI Sea Hawk X 11GB and the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti ASUS ROG STRIX 11GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 1080 Ti has 0.7 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1080 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1080 Ti is marginally better than the GTX 1080 Ti.

Both the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti MSI Sea Hawk X 11GB and the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti ASUS ROG STRIX 11GB have 3584 Shader Processing Units. Having the same number of SPUs and using the same architecture means that the performance they offer can be compared by looking at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, the GTX 1080 Ti has 2.9 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate and 1.1 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate, but the GTX 1080 Ti has 0.7 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth. Although the GPUs are very similar in performance, the GTX 1080 Ti takes the edge.

The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti MSI Sea Hawk X 11GB requires 220 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti ASUS ROG STRIX 11GB requires 220 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 1080 Ti and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 1080 Ti. The two GPUs require the same amount of wattage to run. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview The MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Sea Hawk X comes with preset software that enables overclock mode at the touch of a button. This boosts the clock speeds across the GPU even further than the already high-end performance on offer with this latest Pascal architecture GPU. Architecture It equips a GPU Codenamed P102, which is a first gen Pascal GPU and has 28 SM units activated, offering 3584 shader processing units, 224 TMUs and 88 ROPs. GPU The central unit runs at 1569MHz and goes up to 1683MHz in Turbo Mode. Memory The GPU accesses an 11GB frame buffer of Fast GDDR5X memory, through 352-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1390MHz. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 220W, it requires at least a 550W PSU with available 8-pin and 6-pin power connectors. Performance The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti MSI Sea Hawk X 11GB performance is capable of 2017 AAA gaming at the top graphical settings across all games. This GPU will deliver strong frame rates at 4K on any game at high graphics levels. System Suggestions GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160 (4K). We recommend a high-end processor and 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.Overview The Asus ROG STRIX GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Pascal Architecture.
