MSI has a tweaked and suped-up GeForce RTX 3060 Ti GAMING X TRIO on the review chopping block today, our first custom RTX 3060 Ti. I’ve got some stock and overclocked results, where I’ve pushed the card to its limits — 2145-2160MHz or so which provides some truly kick ass OC headroom on an already kick ass card.

I didn’t know if I would get the GAMING X TRIO right away considering MSI just released its new SUPRIM X family of cards — my review on the MSI RTX 3090 SUPRIM X and review on the MSI RTX 3080 SUPRIM X. But nope, we have the MSI RTX 3060 Ti GAMING X TRIO — which is actually a very impressive sub $500 graphics card.

MSI opted to color the MAG B550 Tomahawk in a mixture of black and gray. Black is the more prominent color, but there’s a good amount of gray that adds contrast and keeps the board from looking too dull. MSI also put some RGB LEDs around the chipset heatsink that add some much-needed color to the board when it’s powered up.

In case the name wasn’t a clue-and-a-half: This is no modest motherboard. MSI’s MEG Z490 Godlike is the company’s Intel Z490 flagship, competing directly with the likes of Asrock’s Z490 Taichi and Asus’ Z490 ROG Maximus XII Extreme in terms of both price and features. (The Z490 chipset is the top-end chipset for Intel’s latest desktop CPUs, allowing for extensive CPU and memory tweaking.) With an MSRP of $749.99, this deluxe motherboard certainly isn’t for the casual user or PC builder.

With the B550 chipset, AMD has added a cheap alternative to the X570. With the appearance of the more modern chipset, the board partners have of course also presented new mainboards, which have become more attractive overall. Because in addition to more up-to-date standards with regard to expansion slots and network features, the power supply was also often drilled out – as is the case with the MSI MPG B550 Gaming Carbon WiFi here.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Review Roundup

Today marks the launch of NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3060 Ti, running up an MSRP of $399. This new card is the successor to the more budget minded (well, somewhat budget minded) RTX 2060 SUPER of last year. With a TDP boost of 25W over the 2060 SUPER, the new 3060 Ti boasts performance on par with the 2080 SUPER. Read more at the reviews listed below:

More to come as they roll in…


The MSI X570-A PRO is a very inexpensive motherboard from MSI. At the time of this writing, it can be had for around $139.99 and is one of the cheapest motherboards utilizing AMD’s venerable premium X570 chipset. This cheaper price does need to be taken into consideration moving forward, a price point such as this comes with its own expectations. We have to put ourselves into the mindset of this price range, and what components the end-user is installing around it.

You can’t really ask for more than that, but MSI does that and more — it’ll just cost you $1750 for the pleasure. At this price point, spending that much money on a single component is not right — when the RTX 3080 offers nearly the same performance for half the cost — or the RX 6800 XT that costs even less.

But, MSI knows this — you know this, I know this. MSI’s over-the-top GeForce RTX 3090 SUPRIM X is just that — OTT. It costs close to $2K but it will give you performance that is virtually unbeatable on the market right now, and all in style.

MSI’s new custom GeForce RTX 3080 SUPRIM X graphics card is one of the biggest, most bad-ass RTX 3080s on the market. It sports a tweaked look that looks just… I don’t even have words, it’s just so nice in person and in your hand (and more importantly, in your gaming PC).

The company has used some gorgeous brushed aluminum on the shroud and backplate, which looks absolutely stunning in person with RGB lighting flashing off of it — in my case, 32GB of G.SKILL Trident Z RGB memory. It seriously looks so nice installed into the PC.

MSI released a beast of a graphics card with their GeForce RTX 3080 Suprim X. The GPU is the largest GPU that I’ve ever put my hands on. MSI was very quiet on the specifications and even the looks of the graphics card before it showed up at my house. When the shipping box arrived, it was large enough that I was wondering if MSI had shipped two GPUs. The GPU even comes with its own GPU Support bracket.
