Now that we have the right to show you the RTX 4090s, we’ll give you a little treat. Here in this article, very nice graphics card MSI RTX 4090 SUPRIM X ! top model from MSI seen yesterday 2399.99 Euros at Cybertek.
Packaging: MSI RTX 4090 SUPRIM X
The cardboard, which is quite imposing in terms of packaging, presents a photo of the card with a reference on the front, with green touches on a white background. We’ll have more details about this little gem of tech and the specs of raw power.
Coming to the package, we find a few nice elements such as a graphics card support with SUPRIM inscription on its base. We also have a SUPRIM mouse pad (it’s too bad it’s not bigger). Finally, the brand adds an introductory page to the SUPRIM X series, and of course we have a quick user guide and a warning about European rules.
Let’s not forget to mention the famous 4*8 pin PCIe Gen5 12VHPWR adapter.
Visually, the card looks very similar to the one we have on the RTX 3000s running Ampere. We see very little aesthetic change on the faces of the fans. Here we have a TRI FROZR 3S cooling system. This system is MSI’s most advanced and uses TORX FAN 5.0 fans and up to 10 heatpipes, especially for the most powerful models. Inside, this RTX 4090 uses a vapor chamber to improve component cooling. The brushed aluminum of the cladding and backplate provides a very high-end visual while reinforcing the length of the board to prevent bending of the PCB. Frankly, we still find the Mystic Light RGB lighting. By the way, speaking of the backplate, pay attention to how it works visually. Personally, I really like the design. Note that the SUPRIM series will be compared to ASUS’ ROG Strix series: the best in the brand’s know-how and the most luxurious positioning.
If we talk about its size, it is 336mm long, 142mm wide and 78mm high. It weighs at least 2413 grams. Pay attention to the space in its case, it does not fit everywhere.
Requires high-end range, has a Dual BIOS function, users can quickly select for low noise or added performance just by playing with the physical switch.
So for power we have the new PCIe Gen5 12VHPWR that can deliver up to 600W over a single cable. Here the dragon brand recommends an 850W power supply.
In terms of connectivity, we have one HDMI 2.1 port and three DisplayPort 1.4a ports. Note that they are on the same line and you can clearly see the skin and form factor exceeding 3 slots.
Also, if we talk about the thickness of the hood, we can clearly see the imposing size of the radiator used by looking at the sides.
Technical specifications of NVIDIA RTX 4090
Here we will be quick as we have talked about this many times and we will cover everything in detail in the private test.
That’s why we’re on the AD102 GPU, which offers: 128 SM for 16,384 CUDA cores. Boost frequency 2520MHz. As for the memory configuration, 24GB in GDDR6X run at speed 21Gbps. Bandwidth is therefore 1008GB/s thanks to the bus 384 bits. TDP 450W. Advertised according to price $1599 for availability 12 October 2022. Official price in France 1949 Euro for the Founders version. But as explained in the introduction to this article, this card was pegged at 2399.99 euros. Still 450 euros more than the Founders version, it can’t be ignored and we’ll see if it’s worth it in our private testing, but on our part the price is clearly struggling to beat.
