The trio does not mean there are three cards, quite the contrary, there are four cards being announced by MSI today, all part of the GAMING TRIO family:

The GAMING X TRIO received a new color of the shroud. Instead of dark gray, which is now exclusive to GeForce RTX 30 series, the metallic parts of the Radeon RX 6800 GAMING TRIO series are silver. MSI has not released any other photos than those included in this article. In fact, the manufacturer’s website features photos with GeForce RTX designs, which we found quite strange.

All four cards feature dual 8-pin power connectors, meaning, there are no visible changes to the design of any of these four cards. The graphics cards are 2.5 slot design with triple-fan TRI FROZR 2 cooler with Torx 4.0 fans. MSI GAMING TRIO series measure 32.4 cm x 14.1 cm x 5.5cm but the weight is not yet listed.

Unlike the reference Radeon RX 6800 cards, MSI custom models will not feature a USB Type-C connector. The cards feature three DisplayPort 1.4 and one HDMI 2.0b (probably a mistake by MSI on the product page, should be HDMI 2.1):

The backplate has a similar design with the air holes kept in the same place, but with the GPU and the logo moved. There is also no Radeon RX logo on the backplate.
