MSI RTX 3090 SUPRIM X, thicker and faster
The flagship MSI model based on GA102 GPU is the SUPRIM X, the thickest graphics card in this generation.
The SUPRIM X is a full custom graphics card with triple-fan and 3.5-slot design. The card offers full implementation of the GA102 with 10752 CUDA cores. By far the most significant upgrade comes to the memory subsystem, now featuring 21 Gbps and 2 GB GDDR6X modules (Micron IZU47 D8BZC).
This model has increased GPU clock to 1950 MHz and 1965 MHz for Gaming and Extreme modes respectively, while NVIDIA reference clock is 1860 MHz. This comes at a cost of higher TDP of 480W (+30W) but this is still within the range available through the new PCIe Gen5 16-pin power connector and PCIe slot of 525W (450W + 75W).
The RTX 3090 Ti SUPRIM X is a very thick 3.5 slot design that weights 2.1 kg, 200g more than the RTX 3090 SUPRIM.
There are no changes to the display output configuration, however the card now has a three-slot I/O bracket, and that’s still not enough to cover the card’s height.
The MSI RTX 3090 Ti will launch on March 29th. The official pricing has not yet been confirmed.
