MSI GeForce RTX 3090 Suprim X and RTX 3080 Suprim X will offer big, but not maximum factory overclocking


At the disposal of the resource VideoCardz there was information about the technical characteristics of the GeForce RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 graphics accelerators from MSI in the new flagship version of the Suprim. As regards the operating frequencies of the GPUs, the new items correspond to those of the Aorus Xtreme series models from Gigabyte.

Both MSI graphics cards are equipped with dual BIOS with quiet and high performance modes. For both modes, the same rates of GPU operation in Boost mode are declared. For example, for the MSI GeForce RTX 3090 Surpim X model, this figure is 1860 MHz, and for the younger version of the GeForce RTX 3080 Suprim X – 1905 MHz.

Thus, MSI’s Suprim series graphics cards cannot be called the fastest solutions among all the GeForce RTX 30 series models presented at the moment. This title is still retained by the ASUS ROG Strix OC models, which offer even higher operating frequencies.

The new flagship series of MSI Suprim graphics cards will receive a new TRI FROZR 2S cooling system, which uses two massive aluminum radiators, seven heat pipes and three TORX 4.0 fans. In addition, the new items are equipped with metal reinforcing back plates.

Compared to the same series of Gaming X graphics cards, the manufacturer also claims a higher level of power consumption for the Surpim series. For the flagship GeForce RTX 3090 Suprim X it is 420 W (70 W more than the reference), and for the GeForce RTX 3080 Suprim X model it is 370 W (50 W more than the reference). For comparison, for the older and younger models of the Gaming X series, the declared power consumption figures are 370 and 340 watts, respectively.

It should be added that the manufacturer is also going to announce Suprim models without the “X” suffix in the name. It is highly likely that they will offer less significant factory overclocking and, most likely, less high declared power consumption.

MSI will unveil Suprim series graphics cards on November 20th. The cost of new products is still unknown. VideoCardz indicates that some technical reviewers have already received samples for review. The latter will probably be published on the day the graphics cards are released.
