MSI has added the X tag to its SUPRIM range and introduces us to this variant that can achieve higher clock speeds, making it an ideal card for enthusiasts.
MSI SUPRIM X graphics cards have a unique aesthetic thanks to constructed of aluminum, which in combination with the Mystic Light RGB lighting in the MSI dragon logo, which is controllable through Dragon Center software, gives you a premium look without giving up your player identity at any time
The MSI SUPRIM X also have a Dual BIOS with two operating modes: GAME when we want to get the most out of the map and QUIET for quieter times when we don’t need the full power of the GPU and want it to make as little noise as possible.

MSI is launching three different versions of its new line of GeForce RTX 3000 SUPRIM X custom graphics cards, which are as follows: GeForce RTX 3090 SUPRIM X 24G, GeForce RTX 3080 SUPRIM X 10G, GeForce RTX 3070 SUPRIM X 8G.
Thanks to the TRI FROZR 2S cooling system and Dragon Center software, these cards can achieve clock speeds higher than the Boost speed specified by NVIDIA in the RTX 3000. Thus, while NVIDIA’s standard design reaches 1695 MHz in Boost mode, the MSI GeForce RTX 3090 SUPRIM X 24G reaches 1860 MHz
The speed increase is not also a matter of the RTX 3090-based model, since models based on RTX 3080 and RTX 3070 see the increase in clock speed of Boost mode at 195 MHz and 180 MHz respectively, and may increase the difference to 210 MHz and 195 MHz using the Dragon Center.
TRI FROZR 2S cooling system
The cooling system of the MSI SUPRIM X is the TRI FROZR 2S, who uses 4th generation TORX fans, which use a ring design which connects two fan blades to each other to increase airflow to the internal heat sink.
In addition, the fans use the Zero Frozr technology, thanks to which the fans will always be stationary, 0 rpm, in the event that the temperature of the card does not exceed 60 ° C. When it exceeds 60 ° C, all the fans start to operate. And in case we are not convinced that the fans are started under these conditions, we can change the values through the Dragon Center software.
Also, how much with high precision heat pipes this, thanks to its direct contact with the GPU, which in combination with the airflow control ensures correct air intake and exhaust for all components, allowing the MSI SUPRIM X to reach speeds of clock higher than NVIDIA Standard design.
In reference to VRAM, that too has its own heat pipes and heat sink for dedicated coolingSince, as we all know, VRAM has its own thermal and power specifications, which is one of the keys to getting better cooling from a graphics card, which allows for the highest clock speeds and prevents thermal throttling between GPUs. and VRAM.
All this combined with a copper nickel alloy base plate, which effectively absorbs the heat generated by the components of the graphics card.
