As a brand in gaming hardware, MSI is announcing a new line of graphics cards powered by NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3080 GPU, equipped with 12GB of memory.

Three designs are available for this GPU – SUPRIM, GAMING TRIO, and VENTUS 3X. Built with the MSI essentials, designed with excellent cooling, optimised circuit board designs and the latest in graphics card componentry.

Powered by the NVIDIA Ampere architecture, the GeForce RTX 3080 delivers 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 render the latest AAA games at max settings and speed through the most popular creator applications as well.


The new SUPRIM cards with the GeForce RTX 30 GPUs have been designed for performance, efficiency and prestige. Cooled with TRI FROZR 2S, their 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 aluminum 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 customisable dynamic lighting options that will dazzle onlookers. With Dual BIOS, users can quickly opt for low noise or additional performance at the flip of a switch.


The latest iteration of the 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 sync with the rest of the PC through Mystic Light Sync and Ambient Link, all controlled with the MSI Center software utility.

VENTUS 3X Series

The popular VENTUS 3X is back and bigger than ever, now enhanced with TORX Fan 3.0. Whether it's for work or for play, VENTUS 3X's performance-focused design maintains the essentials to accomplish any task at hand. A robust cooling system, reinforcing brushed-finish backplate, and rigid industrial aesthetic make this graphics card suitable for any build.

Software Support


The exclusive MSI Center software suite invigorates the user experience with easy to use utilities. For example, Frozr AI Cooling unifies system fans connected to a compatible MSI motherboard in order to react to changes in GPU thermal output.

MSI AFTERBURNER MSI Afterburner is the world's most recognised and widely used graphics card overclocking software. It provides full control of the graphics card and enables users to monitor key system metrics in real-time. Afterburner offers a free performance boost for a smooth in-game experience and higher FPS.


The new MSI NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 12G LHR cards are expected to be available starting January, 11, 2022.
