SUPRIM – MSI presents a new graphics card series, two new cards already in a first exclusive Hands-On

MSI presents SUPRIM, a completely new model series above the Gaming-X and Gaming-Z series. Whereas up to now, individual Lightning models have been the top dog and icing on the cake of the fastest graphics cards, MSI wants to introduce SUPREME, a complete new product line for all faster graphics chips, which is aimed more at prestige and technical implementation, as well as high-quality components. This applies not only to the look and feel with lots of aluminum and LED effects, but also and above all to the cooling and the circuit board of the graphics card itself.

In addition to high-quality materials, it is the technical details that also catch the eye of a tester: a dedicated heat sink for the memory modules, higher-quality individual components and a long-sought dual BIOS that is set to silent mode from the outset. SUPREME currently includes the models for NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3090, RTX 3080 and RTX 3070, whereby the TRI FROZR 2S cooling system including TORX FAN 4.0, special airflow control fins and the heatpipes are designed for particularly efficient and, above all, quiet cooling.

The Dragon Center software suite provides utilities such as Frozr AI Cooling, which allows all system fans connected to a compatible MSI motherboard to respond to changes in GPU heat dissipation. Everybody knows the afterburner by now anyway, so you certainly don’t have to spread it out again.

Included in the scope of delivery is a mousepad and a very useful bottom stand for additional relief of the motherboard.

As an example, I once unpacked the MSI GeForce RTX 3090 Suprim X and already collected first impressions, left my finger prints and of course took pictures before. I’m planning the slaughterhouse festival for the weekend. Then of course there are also detailed reviews. But up to then I have at least already once the description of the cards for you, whereby at least the RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 are not to be distinguished outwardly. There is one thing I can spoil in advance. It remains extremely quiet, despite well over 400 watts.

The large card weighs a total of 1891 grams, which explains the bottom stand and the sense behind it. A full 33.3 cm installation length from the outer edge of the slot bracket to the end of the card (cover) is already a big number. The 13.5 cm installation height from the upper edge of the motherboard slot (built-in card) to the top of the cooler cover is hardly less than that in terms of weight. With an installation depth of 5.3 cm from the top edge of the board to the front of the cover, the picture is rounded off: a monster of a cooler.

What the graphics card ultimately offers, how silent the silent mode really is and what the temperatures want to suck us into, all of this is then covered in the review. Including a power supply recommendation, because at least the two large cards probably won’t be economical.
