Mounted on the radiator is a 120mm hydraulic bearing fan with a nine-blade impeller. The rotation speed is regulated by PWM in the range of 800-1800 rpm. The maximum speed corresponds to a noise level of 25.3 dBA, an air flow of 140 m3/ h and a static pressure of 2.55 mm H2O.

The fan is decorated with multicolor backlighting. Its service life is declared equal to 50,000 hours. The dimensions of the cooling system are 160 x 128 x 76 mm.

The new cooling systems are suitable for processors with a TDP of up to 160W. In addition to the already mentioned Intel Core 12th Generation (Alder Lake) LGA 1700 processors, the compatibility list includes other modern Intel and AMD processors. No pricing information yet.

As the first offers show, approximately from 3600 to 4500 dollars. Video cards have already appeared in a number of European stores, where you can see just such a price range. Moreover, almost all prices relate to the MSI Suprim X model, it’s just that prices vary greatly in different countries and different stores.

In case anyone forgot, we are talking about a Navi 24-based card with 1024 shader units, equipped with 4 GB of GDDR6 memory connected to a 64-bit memory bus. The card is equipped with a PCIe Gen4 x4 interface and does not have AV1 decoding and H264/265 encoding. According to AMD’s calculations, the RX 6500XT will have to compete with Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 16 series models, which currently sell for between 260 and 300 euros.

10,752 CUDA cores, 1900 MHz frequency and 1 kW consumption for two hours of play. MSI Reveals Specs of GeForce RTX 3090 Ti Graphics Card

Published

The start of sales of the new flagship Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 Ti graphics card, which debuted at CES 2022, was expected next week, however, according to the latest rumors, the novelty has been postponed due to hardware and BIOS problems. However, manufacturers are starting to add these video cards to their product catalogs on their official websites. This is what MSI did, which gives us the opportunity to evaluate the characteristics of the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti.

We already knew that the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti will have 10,752 CUDA cores, but now the GPU frequency is known. In gaming and quiet modes, it is 1880 MHz, in extreme mode (it requires installed MSI Center software) – 1900 MHz. For comparison, the frequencies of the MSI GeForce RTX 3090 Suprim X are 1860-1875 MHz, respectively.

21 GHz memory has already been mentioned, but another interesting point concerns the power subsystem. The GeForce RTX 3090 Ti was credited with a new 16-pin connector, transmitting power up to 600 watts. But MSI decided to use three standard eight-pin connectors in the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti Suprim X. Apparently, this was done for better compatibility with current power supplies in PC gamers.

Finally, another important point: the power consumption of the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti is 480W! That’s 30W more than the current flagship. For a couple of hours of playing, such a video card will wind up 1 kW on the energy meter. Accordingly, the power of the recommended power supply is also 1 kW. The last thing to note: the weight of the video card is 1905 grams – 10 grams more than the GeForce RTX 3090 Suprim X.
