Features and Specifications
On the Pascal side of things, we have all the features we’d expect from a new architecture with performance being the main point of everything. We’re still seeing VR Ready on a lot of advertisements so we’ll try to look into that a bit as well. MSI also mentions having the Torx 2.0 Fan design. While it may not add up to a huge difference, I thought it was worth pointing out from many of the other features listed.
