Overview of MSI GeForce RTX 30 Series GPUs
MSI introduces two graphic card series based on the new NVIDIA Ampere architecture:
GAMING 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. Leading this updated product series is the new 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 Dragon Center software utility.
The popular VENTUS is back and bigger than ever, now enhanced with TORX Fan 3.0 and available in triple and dual fan variants. Whether it’s for work or for play, VENTUS’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.
GAMING and VENTUS together will form the spearhead of MSI’s GeForce RTX™ 30 series line-up, however, more series are planned to arrive in the near future.
MSI will provide a detailed look at both GAMING and VENTUS during the upcoming Insider livestream on Wednesday the 2nd of September @ 16:00 CEST / 07:00 PDT / 22:00 Taiwan.
