MSI RX 7900 GAMING series are $50-200 premium

Almost two months after the official launch of AMD’s RX 7900 GPUs, MSI has finally released their cards to the market.

As we mentioned before, MSI was not particularly interested in releasing AMD reference design just like Gigabyte or ASUS did. Instead, the company opted for higher profit margins by releasing their own custom design, enter Gaming Trio Classic.

These new MSI RX 7900 cards had already been shown at CES 2023 early last month. However, it took another month for them to reach the US market. As of now, they are exclusively sold by Newegg, and they are not even listed by MSI’s official US store:

Pricing is on a higher side, with RX 7900 XTX now listed at $1,099.99 and RX 7900 XT model going for $949.99. This is respectively $200 and $50 more than official AMD MSRP, furthermore, for some reason the XTX model comes without free shipping:

The series feature fully custom PCB design with three 8-pin power connectors. For Radeon RX 7000 series, MSI opted to use older GAMING triple-fan cooling design from its RX 6900 series. They look just about identical to RX 6950XT model with some minor changes to the backplate (missing RGB).

Sadly, there are no news about updated Gaming Trio cooler design or even Suprim models planned for RX 7900 series. MSI is simply ticking the box here by launching their first and so far, the only custom design based on RDNA3 architecture. Hopefully, the plans go further.
