MSI Launches their new GTX 1080 Non Reference lineup

Great looking cards, to bad price is way to high.

How does armor sit in the lineup vs gaming x?

Looks good. It's so funny that most manufacturers are releasing reference style blowers, since nvidia decided to gouge for there aluminium ones.

I expect the Armour to be their moderately factory OC'ed model meant for consumers who either do not like blower style coolers or are interested in over clocking…. but dont want to pay  a premium for a 'guaranteed' over-clock.

IE I expect it to be a Aero with better binned chips and better power sub-system but in return for being cheaper than the Gamin-X will not be able to hit monster OC's.

This in only a guess though and I may be incorrect.

That is pretty much what I was thinking as well.

As an aside thanks for spelling armour the correct way as well…I forced myself to type it the way the picture had it spelled. Canadian (or I guess more appropriately non-USA) spelling seems to be dying with everyone in Canada using USA based products and spellcheck.
