MSI has unveiled three new RTX 3080 12GB graphics cards

MSI has just revealed three new RTX 30 series graphics card designs with Nvidia's RTX 3080 12GB silicon, offering users a 20% increase in VRAM capacity and bandwidth as well as a modest increase in CUDA core count. 

MSI's three new RTX 3080 designs will be launched with overclocked and non-overclocked variants, which means that MSI has launched six new GPU SKUs today. Sadly, MSI has not revealed the clock speeds of these new GPU models, though they have confirmed that their RTX 3080 Gaming Z Trio, SUPRIM and SUPRIM X graphics cards will feature a 390W power limit.

All of MSI's new RTX 3080 models feature triple-fan heatsinks and 12GB of GDDR6X memory running at 19 Gbps. None of these graphics cards feature memory overclocks, a fact that makes a lot of sense after you consider that the RTX 3080 12GB already offers gamers a 20% bandwidth upgrade over the RTX 3080 10GB. 

Both of MSI's SUPRIM series graphics cards will feature a BIOS switch that will allow users to select  a "low noise" or "additional power" BIOS for their graphics card. This will allow RTX 300 SUPRIM users to choose between higher framerates and lower system noise levels. 

Sadly, MSI has not revealed their pricing for their RTX 3080 12GB models. MSI's press release for their new SUPRIM, Gaming X and Ventus 3X graphics cards is available to read below.

Press Release - MSI unveils custom NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 12GB

As a leading brand in True Gaming hardware, MSI is announcing graphics cards powered by NVIDIA 's GeForce RTX 3080 GPU, equipped with 12 GB of memory. Three designs are available for this GPU - SUPRIM, GAMING TRIO, and VENTUS 3X. Built with the MSI essentials, designed with excellent cooling, optimized circuit board designs, and the latest in graphics card componentry.

Powered by the NVIDIA Ampere architecture, the GeForce RTX 3080 deliver an incredible leap in performance and fidelity with acclaimed features such as ray tracing, NVIDIA DLSS performance-boosting AI, NVIDIA Reflex latency-reduction, NVIDIA Broadcast streaming features and additional memory that allows it to speed through the most popular creator applications as well.


SUPRIM cards with the new GeForce RTX 30 GPUs have been designed for performance, efficiency, and prestige. Cooled with TRI FROZR 2S, our most advanced air cooling system yet, heat is effectively dissipated from critical board components with TORX FAN 4.0, Airflow Control fins, Core Pipes, a base plate, and even a dedicated heatsink for the memory modules. Polished aluminium on the exterior of the cooler and the backplate impart an armored aesthetic while reinforcing the length of the card. RGB lighting flows with millions of colors and an array of customizable of dynamic lighting options will dazzle onlookers. With Dual BIOS, users can quickly opt for low noise or for additional performance with the flip of a switch.

The latest iteration of our GAMING TRIO Series design has been refreshed with a new look while maintaining the same great balance between performance, cooling, and low-noise that gamers have come to trust. At the forefront is the TORX Fan 4.0 design with pairs of fan blades bound together with an outer link, forming a rim that focuses airflow into the updated TRI FROZR 2 cooling system. A matte-finish backplate not only reinforces the graphics card, but provides passive cooling action through the implementation of thermal pads. Mystic Light adorns the exterior of the graphics card, illuminating color in synchrony with the rest of the PC through Mystic Light Sync and Ambient Link, all controlled with the MSI Center software utility.
