Up until now MSI’s flagship for the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 have been the Gaming X Trio models, but as of today they are stepping up and looking to take on the top end of the market with their brand new brand SUPRIM. SUPRIM, which is said like “Supreme” and I think the name makes it extremely clear what MSI is aiming for. The word is defined as “highest in degree or quality”, MSI is replacing the Lighting models that used to sit at the top of their product stack with a cleaner, more elegant card while still keeping that performance focus. Today I have the RTX 3080 SUPRIM X in the office and I’m excited to see what MSI is doing differently. Especially with Nvidia themselves upping the ante when it comes to build quality and styling over the last few years with the Founders Editions. When the demand/card availability issues start to level out, is the SUPRIM going to be the go-to option? Let’s find out!

As always before diving into everything I also run GPUz just to double check that the clock speeds in the specifications also match up with our card. I will be testing our card with the BIOS set to gaming mode. This doesn’t change the clock speed but does make a difference in other areas. Our boost speed does match the 1905 MHz of the specifications. This is also significantly faster than the Founders Edition which had a boost clock of 1710 MHz. I am testing using the latest Nvidia published BIOS (457.30) and having this GPUz also documents the BIOS revision that we are running as well.
