The MSI GeForce GTX 960 LE will get a core clock frequency of 1152 MHz with a 1216 MHz Boost and 7 Gbps memory. This product has 1024 Shader processors. This product will be available in 2GB and 4GB models.

MSI to offer GeForce GTX 980 Ti Gaming LE (Light) edition
Quote:
MSI is releasing a GeForce GTX Ti Gaming LE LIGHT edition. It comes factory overclocked albeit slightly slower opposed to the regular model, and combined with the default variables like the 6 GB graphics memory.

The all custom MSI GeForce GTX 980 Ti Gaming (LE LIGHT edition) for example comes with a default base clock set at 1026 MHz where the regular gaming model does 1178 MHz. The boost clock is 1026 MHz. The memory is standard at 7 Gbps.

To keep things cool the MSI GeForce GTX 980 Ti Gaming (LE edition) comes equipped with the newly revised V TwinFrozr cooler that had minor aesthetic changes and hey, even remains passive when the product is in idle. Fans remain disabled when the GPU is under a set temperature at light GPU load. On top of it you will spot a Illuminated LED LOGO design, you can pick the animation of that logo like on/of/dim/phase. Then the product is armed with a nice, read very nice back-plate.

No prices are mentioned just yet, but you can expect the LE models to be a notch cheaper.

Side note, there will also be a 4GB GeForce 980 Gaming LE (non Ti) available at 1142 MHz base/1253 MHz boost and a 7 Gbps clock frequency.

Some people are apparently mad that only the Lightning had a user controled LED logo on the gpu.

So it's the newer cooler with the fancy light, lower clocks and a lower price? Seems like a good lineup for anyone wanting to pick up a new card in the retiring generation.

Retiring generation? I doubt we'll see a Pascal Ti or "Lightning" version for at least another 8-10 months.

Why should "LE" models be cheaper than the reference models?
They run slower clocks but the graphic chip and VRAM is still the same as you find on reference cards.

If I was in the market for one, this would be a good buy for me.
Flash the bios and enjoy the savings, right?

Either way, I was hoping for a tiny HTPC variant of a 980 or a 980 ti. =(
I thought that was what "lite" meant.

That is exactly what I am in the market for. A cheap 960 that I can flash the bios on to 1.313v and overclock the snot out of. 2GB 960 is gonna have to beat $160-170 used like the other 2GB 960's are going for.
