MSI's Radeon RX 7900 XTX & RX 7900 XT Gaming Trio Classic graphics cards are now available on retail shelves starting at $949.99 US.
MSI's Custom RDNA 3 GPUs Hit Retail: Radeon RX 7900 XTX & RX 7900 XT Gaming Trio Classic Graphics Cards
At this year's CES, MSI unveiled its first RDNA 3 custom designs, the Radeon RX 7900 Gaming Trio Classic series graphics cards. These graphics cards are designed with the iconic Gaming Trio GPU cooler which is a high-end design tailor-made for the new Navi 31 GPUs. Now a month after their unveiling, the cards are finally available for sale at Newegg.
The MSI Radeon RX 7900 XTX Gaming Trio Classic is currently listed for $1099.99 US by the retailer while the Radeon RX 7900 XT Gaming Trio Classic is listed for $949.99 US. These are a $100 US and $50 US premium over the reference MSRP which is decent considering these cards also come with a custom PCB design. Following are the retail links at Newegg:
- MSI Radeon RX 7900 XTX Gaming Trio Classic - $1099.99 US
- MSI Radeon RX 7900 XT Gaming Trio Classic - $949.99 US
The main difference between the Gaming X Trio and the Gaming Trio Classic is that the shroud, fan, and heatsink design. While the new cards look familiar to the Radeon RX 6000 Gaming X Trio cards and also feature the same TORX Fan 4.0 cooling solution, the internal heatsink assembly has been modified slightly for the newer RDNA 3 GPU cores. The best part is that these cards retain the small 2.5-slot design rather than going with the 3+ slot design that is the new Gaming X Trio cooler. Both the Radeon RX 7900 XTX & RX 7900 XT Gaming Trio Classic graphics cards come with a custom PCB & make use of a triple 8-pin connector design.
MSI highlights the following main features for its Radeon RX 7900 XTX & RX 7900 XT Gaming Trio Classic graphics cards:
- Tri-Frozr 2: Tri-Frozr 2 offers the perfect balance between cool temperatures and quiet fans during endless gaming sessions.
- Torx Fan 4.0: A masterpiece of teamwork, fan blades work in pairs to create unprecedented levels of focused air pressure.
- Core Pipe: Precision-machined heat pipes ensure max contact to the GPU and spread heat along the full length of the heatsink
- Metal Backplate: Thermal pads under the sturdy metal backplate provide additional cooling while the flow-through ventilation reduces trapped heat.
- Airflow Control: Don't sweat it, Airflow Control guides the air to exactly where it needs to be for maximum cooling.
Considering that there are issues with AMD's own reference Radeon RX 7900 XTX graphics cards, it is a wise decision right now to go for an AIB custom design such as these upcoming ones from MSI.
