MSI Reveals Custom NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPU Series

Category: Video Cards
Posted: 10:36AM

The release of NVIDIA's newly announced GeForce RTX 20 series powered by the company's Turing architecture has been hotly anticipated by many. Of course it is not just the release of the reference version of the graphics card, but those from AIB partners. Now we have information from MSI on what its versions of the GeForce RTX 20 series of graphics cards.

Delivering the top thermal performance for their class are the GAMING TRIO and DUKE series, featuring new premium designs and triple fans. The VENTUS features a minimalist dual-fan design and the AERO has a blower-type design that will exhaust the hot air out the back of your case. For those of you looking for some more advanced cooling than the GAMING TRIO or DUKE though, there will be a SEA HAWK version as well, with hybrid air and liquid cooling. This will make liquid cooling accessible for many with ease of installation and its maintenance-free design.

By the way, the NVIDA Store page for the series is up currently, so you can visit there if you want to check out reference specifications or pre-order a Founders Edition version of the RTX 2080 or RTX 2080 Ti. The RTX 2080 will cost $799 and the RTX 2080 Ti comes in at $1199. Both will ship on or around September 20, so in one month. The RTX 2070 is also listed at $599, but is only marked to notify you when it becomes available.

Just edited in the link to the MSI release and here is a link to its RTX 20 series page.

And when I clicked the link in the Newegg FB post yesterday afternoon and saw that they wanted as much money as they did an or where sold out I said these things had better comletly destroy the current gen HW, for that kind of money. Looking forward to reading rewiews of course.

It will definitely be interesting to see how they compare to the Pascal equivalents. With the larger chip size, they will certainly be more power hungry, and looking at the specs given in the NVIDIA Store pages, the reference boost clocks are slower for the 2080 and 2070 than the 1080 and 1070 respectively. However, the faster GDDR6 may appreciably increase the effectiveness of those GPU clock speeds. (Might be an interesting test to see the GDDR6 downclocked to GDDR5/GDDR5X speeds and then compare.)

Personally, I don't really have the money to spend on one of these, but also I like my Vega 64. If I had a Vega 56 or an RX 5/480 I'd likely be happy too because some of it is that I like the drivers and features they offer. Crimson is not perfect but the experience is better than NVIDIA drivers and offers several more features that I do I like and use.
