MSI Gives First Look at Its Limited Edition GeForce RTX 30 SUPRIM 35th Anniversary Graphics Card
MSI teased its upcoming limited edition graphics card, the GeForce RTX 30 SUPRIM 35th Anniversary Edition, which commemorates MSI’s 35 years in the tech industry.
MSI Launches GeForce RTX 30 SUPRIM 35th Anniversary Graphics Card, Extremely Limited Edition Variant
The MSI GeForce RTX 30 SUPRIM 35th Anniversary Edition graphics card will be a limited edition product. The graphics card has the same design as the existing SUPRIM series cards, but includes etched sketches of the previous generation Twin Frozr graphics cards in the backplate and fairing, giving it a more premium look.
MSI doesn’t say what specific variant of the GeForce RTX 30 line this card would be based on, but to celebrate a big launch like this, the card would have to be either an RTX 3080 Ti or an RTX 3090. The card is powered by 8 pin triple connectors, dual bios design and excellent RGB lighting. Here are some details about the MSI SUPRIM X series with Tri Frozr 2S cooling:
MSI GeForce RTX 30 SUPRIM 35th Anniversary Edition graphics card cooling and design
MSI has incorporated and refined a few elements in the new Tri Frozr design for SUPRIM X, now called Tri Frozr 2S, while the Gaming X Trio variants feature Tri Frozr 2 cooling. The first is the TORX 4.0 fan which uses a ring design. which connects two fan blades to each other to increase airflow to the internal heat sink. These fans feature a double ball bearing design that ensures quiet functionality under heavy loads.
In addition to the cooling fans, the new VIP heatsink has been engineered to be more dense using the all new 2.0 curved fin design. The new heat sink uses baffles to allow more air to pass through the fins smoothly, without causing turbulence that would result in unwanted noise. MSI estimates a 2 degree (C) drop in temperatures with the updated design compared to the previous generation cooling system.
As for the heat sink, the massive block is made of seven square-shaped copper heat pipes with a more concentrated design to transfer heat from the copper base to the heat sink more efficiently. The base itself is a solid nickel-plated base plate, transferring heat to the heat pipes very efficiently. To top it off, MSI uses its proprietary Thermal Compound X which is said to offer a higher thermal interface and heat transfer than traditional TIM applications. The 35th Anniversary Edition variant is expected to launch in the coming months.
