MSI RTX 4090 Suprim X Review

Introduction

Every manufacturer has their own type of flagship model in any product range. Whilst we saw the Nvidia Founders Edition version of the RTX 4090, today the manufacturers are allowed to show off their own versions, and MSI have come out of the gate with all guns blazing, like the last stand of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

Rather than beginning with their most affordable (relatively) model we've got their flagship RTX 4090 on hand, the Suprim X. Whilst we might be constantly frustrated at it not just being called the Supreme X, there is no denying that every version of it we've ever tested has proven to be one of the best two cards in that range.

Having already had our jaws dropped by the performance the Ada Lovelace architecture that underpins the RTX 4090, the opportunity to see a flagship version of it, with a factory overclock and a seriously beefy cooler has us salivating. Before we dribble all down our front, let's crack on and see what the MSI is bringing to the party.

Technical Specifications

MSI are keeping coy about the clock speed of their latest flagship entry into their Nvidia card range. Thankfully whilst they might be singing along to The Go-Go's Our Lips are Sealed, we have GPUz which reveals all. For the lazy or impatient amongst you the Suprim X has a rated speed of 2625 MHz, 105 MHz higher than the Founders Edition.

So this performs on par with the FE, roughly, losing in a lot of instances(unless the labels on some of the graphs are wrong?), draws more power and runs at a higher temperature and costs at least £200 more than the FE. was it at least quieter?

Now you see why EVGA has pulled out of Nvidia cardsQuote

Yeah, it seems that gone are the days where it actually makes sense to buy an AIB partner card. They're more expensive and are not much better in cooling.Quote

The issue for many of us not living in the UK/US is actually managing to get our hands on an FE card. I would have to import it direct from Nvidia and then pay 36% tax on it Quote

Yeah, countries like Norway are very expensive when it comes to tax. Ireland has high tax and import duties as well, but some UK shops (Amazon for example) have deals where I can still buy items from the UK and only pay Irish tax, not UK tax AND Irish tax, which is what has happened with other places post-Brexit. Many of the shops I used to use from the UK I don't shop with any more. It's not right paying both UK and Irish tax.Quote

If you have friends over in those areas, you could give them the money to pay for it, then ship it to you? Will take longer but probably save you money.Quote
