MSI offers a beautifully designed graphics card both from an aesthetic point of view, as well as the component selection and this hardware build. At a going price of 1750 USD, the card obviously will be a hard sell; as for that money, you really should look into a 3080 at half the price. One of the problems the SUPRIM X runs into is the limiters that NVIDIA enforces. Long story short, the premium AIB cards all perform 1%, maybe 2% away from each other in raw performance. This 3090 SUPRIM X, as a result, sits 3 to 4% above reference performance. For the 250 USD price differential seen from reference, you really need to wonder if that's worth it. Though, we do have to say that this card is the best tweaker we've tested to date for any 3090. Overall we boosted performance close to 10% measures from the founder edition. So yeah, all is relative, of course. It's a gorgeous product none the less—gaming performance and, of course, rendering quality. My main concern is not performance, cooling, or even pricing. This card consumes close to 450 Watts of power, and relative to the extra performance you gain, that number is far too high for me to be a comfortable number. Many will disagree with me or do not care about power consumption. You need to game at Ultra HD and beyond for this card to make a bit of sense. We also recognize that the two factors do not need to make sense for many of you as the product sits in a very extreme niche. But I stated enough about that. I like this chunk of hardware sitting inside a PC, though, as no matter how you look at it, it is a majestic product. Please make sure you have plenty of ventilation, though, as the RTX 3090 will dump lots of heat. It is big, but it still looks terrific. Where I could nag a little about the 10GB VRAM on the GeForce RTX 3080, we can not complain even the slightest bit about the whopping big mac feature of the 3090. The card is formidable if you apply and give it the right circumstances. Aside from my remarks on pricing and power consumption, MSI did almost everything right with the SUPRIM X. Design and aesthetics are, of course, a subjective manner. We do like to looks, but that goes just as well for the Gaming X TRIO models. Performance-wise really, the two trade off perhaps 1% with each other here and there. So that is not the decisive factor to beat. Tweaking wise, this card is a gem. We love the dual BIOS feature but feel the GAMING BIOS mode is slightly too noisy for MSI standards and the SILENT BIOS mode a notch too hot for what is deemed commonly acceptable. However, my advice is to leave it at the default configured SILENT mode, under the assumption you have proper airflow inside your chassis, as this card needs to ditch 450 Watts of heat. The card easily is a top pick, but whether or not you can find one in the stores or people willing to check out this kind of cash for a GPU, well .. we're not sure about it. But my man, what beast.
