MSI has announced yet another Geforce GTX 980 Ti graphics card, the hybrid-cooled MSI GTX 980 Ti Sea Hawk developed in cooperation with Corsair.

The new hybrid-cooled GTX 980 Ti Sea Hawk is a result of cooperation between MSI and Corsair and features a standard GTX 980 Ti paired up with Corsair's H55 AiO liquid cooling solution. Based on micro-fin copper base connected to a 120mm radiator, the Corsair H55 should have no trouble coping with GM204 GPU temperatures.

While the Corsair H55 takes care of the GPU, the VRM part and the memory are cooled by a standard blower-style radial fan. According to MSI, the GTX 980 Ti Sea Hawk is 30 percent cooler, 30 percent quieter and 20 percent faster than your standard reference GTX 980 Ti.

Based on a well known Nvidia GM204 GPU with 2816 CUDA cores, the GTX 980 Ti Sea Hawk is also factory-overclock and works at 1190MHz for the GPU base and 1291MHz for the GPU Boost clock while 6GB of GDDR5 memory, paired up with a 384-bit memory interface, ended up overclocked to 7096MHz. According to MSI, the GTX 980 Ti Sea Hawk has plenty of additional overclocking headroom via MSI Afterburner utility and ensures further tweaking possibilities with Triple Overvoltage, custom profiles and more.

According to MSI, the GTX 980 Ti Sea Hawk should be available immediately with a suggested retail price of US $739.99.
