After numerous leaks and to the surprise of no one, the SUPRIM series is finally here. These are the new graphics cards from MSI featuring a brand new TRI FROZR 2S cooler design with three fans, some ARGB lighting, and a stylish metallic shroud and a backplate.

There are three models announced today, the RTX 3090 SUPRIM X and RTX 3080 SUPRIM X. MSI is also planning non-X models with slightly lower clock speeds, although today’s launch is all about the fastest RTX 30 cards from MSI.

The RTX 3090 SUPRIM X has a boost clock of 1860 MHz by default, one of the highest frequencies on the market. However, the graphics card is also equipped with a special software boost mode “Extrem Performance” applied through the MSI Dragon Center. In this mode, the boost clock will increase to 1875 MHz, the fastest boost clock on the market. In terms of power, we have 420W TGP (+70W) and three  8-pin power connectors.

The RTX 3080 SUPRIM X comes with a 1905 MHz boost frequency out of the box. With the Extreme Performance, profile applied the boost clock increases to 1920 MHz. This SKU has a TGP of 370W (+50W).

The GA104-based RTX 3070 SUPRIM X features a boost clock of 1905 MHz, which can be increased to 1920 MHz through the software. The TGP has been increased to 280W (+60W) and the card requires dual 8-pin power connectors.

When it comes to pricing the 3090 SUPRIM will retail at 1656 GBP, while 3080 SPRIM X is set to cost 900 USD / 799 EUR / 810 GBP. The RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 should become available now, with the RTX 3070 coming in early December.
