MSI SuprimX RTX 3080 12GB LHR Graphics Card Review

MSI is one of the biggest names in the PC gaming market, and they have many of the best gaming products on the market today! From award-winning motherboards to extremely fast graphics cards. However, today, it’s all about the latest graphics cards, and it looks like there’s still plenty of life in the Nvidia RTX 3080 chipset yet, as this latest revision aims to push the card to new heights. The changes are not particularly significant though, with a few tweaks to the overall speeds of the card. The main upgrade here is that the card now has a couple of extra gigabytes of VRAM, which should improve high-resolution gaming performance. Of course, there’s also the fact that this chipset has been with us a while now, and as platforms mature, manufacturing improvements in the chipset, cooling design, and driver improvements can have a big impact in taking things to the next level.

It’s certainly a well-equipped card though. The stock Nivida RTX 3080 that originally launched is still a very potent graphics card and well suited to high resolution and high framerate gameplay with little compromise. So pushing the performance up a little bit should help keep this card fresh for 2022 and beyond. Of course, as with a lot of gaming hardware, graphics cards are really dominated by their price and their stock availability these days, with many gamers simply having to buy what they can find and afford. With that in mind, this card is likely to be very popular, and it’s unlikely to be particularly cheap. However, with that in mind, I am hoping to see some rather tasty performance figures today. Rather than benching all our GPUs together though, this one is going to be a little more laser-focused; we’re pitting it against the card it is destined to replace!
