MSI is going for a little overkill with its latest version of the GeForce GTX 980 Ti, the Gaming 6G Golden Edition. The card gets its name from its all-copper heatsink. MSI says this card is a limited edition, to boot.
The golden boy's GPU is clocked at healthy 1190MHz base and 1291MHz boost speeds, and it's fed by 6GB of GDDR5 running at 7.1 GT/s. Given the copper heatsink's weight, it's only fitting that MSI fitted the card with a metal back plate, emblazoned with a golden dragon logo.
The 980 Ti Golden Edition comes with MSI's well-regarded Twin Frozr cooler. Twin 100-mm "Torx" fans move air over all that copper, and they can stop spinning at idle to reduce noise. According to MSI, the card is "smaller than [a] two-slot design." Given that it's a GTX 980 Ti, this card will require two 8-pin PCIe power connectors. Gamers can use the included software to switch between the card's OC, Gaming, and Silent modes and control the card's LED lighting.
