There's no doubt about it; we like the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti in general, and the MSI SUPRIM X even better. Really, MSI has a fabulous card here at hand with the SUPRIM X. Despite the prophetic naming; it's a product that oozes quality at that hardware level; the hardware really is that good. The looks are great; that aluminum backplate, newly designed cooler, and dual BIOS, is it worth a price premium? We doubt that a little, to be honest, especially over the reference FE design (which is really good). But this is over-engineering at its best. Remember that all cards are more or less in that same performance bracket, resulting in a meager 4~5% additional performance seen over the FE edition, for this, all amped and beefed up product. Make no mistake, it's love and fantastic, but is it worth the highest price premium? We doubt that. In general, I think anyone would agree with me; we all would love to own a 3080 Ti. This is a very well-balanced enthusiast-class graphics card. Basically, it's almost a 3090 with half the memory and a few configuration tweaks. I am totally fine with the 12GB memory btw; the 24 GB on the 3090 is impressive but far-fetched and made the product extra expensive. 12GB is a notably well-balanced value in the year 2021. Performance-wise NVIDIA carved out something beautiful. You will be way up there in the highest performance regions, and even at Ultra HD, you can enable Raytracing with the combination of DLSS where applicable. Competition-wise, overall, AMD will still win in the lower resolutions thanks to their massive L3 buffer. However, in more demanding scenarios, NVIDIA takes the lead in rasterized shading performance when the resolution goes up when it comes to brute force muscle power in more demanding scenarios. NVIDIA also has faster Raytracing performance and, of course, the implementation of DLSS that will support that raytracing even further in performance. For raytracing, it's still hard to find Games with raytraced properly reflections, but that's what you should be after, and the numbers will grow in the future. The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti performs well on all fronts, performance, cooling, and acoustics as an overall package of hard- and software. MSI did a spectacular job here, but in the end, that choice rests at the end-user level availability and ... pricing. If pricing remains under control at etailers, this card will be a hit—what a card. If you can find it at the right price, highly recommended.
