The GeForce RTX 20 Series GAMING TRIO is the return of MSI’s beastly three-fan graphics card. Only reserved for the most powerful of GPU’s, the TRIO Series features a mix of black and gunmetal grey with elegant shapes and a classy brushed metal backplate that matches the front. This looks great with the gorgeous RGB effects found on the front and the side of the card, which can be controlled using MSI’s Mystic Light software and made to synchronize with other RGB components.
Put on a colorful display using the MSI Mystic Light utility. Choose your unique look from millions of available colors and provide a finishing touch with any of the predefined animated effects. A fresh new look & feel is just a few clicks away. Not feeling the hype or just prefer to go dark for a bit? Turning the LEDs off is just as easy.
Rocking a classy brushed look, the backplate on the GAMING TRIO series provides a nice visual finish to the card. It also strengthens the card and thanks to some cleverly placed thermal pads even helps to keep temperatures low.
Using three of the award-winning TORX 2.0 Fans with Double Ball Bearings, Tri-Frozr is the pinnacle of air cooling.
A brand new version of the iconic MSI TORX fan pushes the limits of thermal performance yet further than before. The new trims clearly visible on the traditional fan blade create a focused airflow which in turn is pushed down by the dispersion fan blades for increased static pressure.
has a special curved blade which accelerates the airflow, increasing its effectiveness.
pushes down a steady airflow to the massive heatsink below.
Double Ball Bearings give the unique MSI TORX 3.0 Fans a strong and lasting core for years of smooth gaming. They also remain virtually silent while spinning under load, keeping your graphics card cool during intense and lengthy gaming sessions.
First introduced in 2008 by MSI, ZERO FROZR technology stops the fans completely when temperatures are relatively low, eliminating all fan noise when no cooling is needed. When the heat is on during gaming, the fans will automatically start spinning again to keep your powerhouse cool.
In our quest to provide the best cooling, we have mastered the art of Aerodynamics.
Wave-curved fins allow the airflow to pass more smoothly, resulting in less noise.
Air hits the surface of the fins from the top. If the fins are flat, the air hitting the surface will create some turbulence, which can be perceived as noise. By curving the surface the air hits, turbulence and noise are reduced.
Airflow Control Technology guides the airflow directly onto the heatpipes, while simultaneously creating more surface area for the air to absorb more heat before leaving the heatsink.
Air hits the protruding parts and is steered in the direction of the heatpipes (where most of the heat is concentrated), thus providing more direct airflow to the heatpipes, cooling them.
The copper heatpipes running through the massive array of aluminum fins are the key to spreading the heat along the full length of the heatsink. At the point where they touch base and collect the heat, they are consolidated as close as possible for maximum effect.
To temper the heat generated by a powerful GPU, MSI GAMING series graphics cards use a solid nickel-plated copper base plate. The base plate catches the heat from the GPU and transfers it to the heat pipes for dissipation so you can keep cool.
Every detail counts when it comes to creating the ultimate thermal design, which is why MSI Graphics Cards use a premium thermal compound to make sure it outlives the competition.
Underneath all the metal are the multilayered electric highways that make up the Printed Circuit Board. They connect all the vital components and allow them to communicate at lightning speed.
A die-cast metal sheet acts as a Close Quarters Heatsink for the memory modules and doubles as an Anti-Bending safeguard by connecting to the IO Bracket. The power phases towards the right side are covered by a plate that is fused directly to the heatsink for excellent cooling.
Not all circuit boards are created equal. MSI custom PCB Design provides a beefed up power delivery for pushing the card to its limits and uses more layers and a larger surface area to provide ultimate stability.
One of the deciding factors in performance is the quality of the components used. These components have proven durable enough to withstand the torturous circumstances of extreme gaming and overclocking for extended usage.
Comparing to the 20000 hours lifetime of solid state capacitors, Hi-c CAP has not only 8 times longer lifespan (160000 hours in total) but also ultra-low impedance and ESR (Electron Spin Resonance) to provide better power supply stability and lower operating temperature.
Get the most out of your MSI graphics card in terms of performance and experience almost unlimited customization options with the included software.
With the convenience of Mystic Light Sync, you can control RGB LED solutions from other brands, such as CPU coolers, keyboards and mice or RGB system fans.
To improve the experience with MSI software, we have embarked on a quest to consolidate as much of our software as possible into one unified suite. We are excited to share the first version of this gargantuan project which will be known as Dragon Center.
Eventually Dragon Center will be the only MSI software you need to install for full functionality of your MSI Desktop, Graphics Card, Motherboard or even Gaming Gear. Thanks to a modular concept, the application will automatically detect new MSI hardware once added. Based on the hardware in your system it will offer the relevant software drivers for your specific setup.
For our latest RTX 20 Series graphics cards, Dragon Center already supports features such as predefined performance profiles. However it also allows you to create a custom performance profile that fits your needs.
The Gaming Mode button on the left side will automatically set your system to its highest performance settings to ensure the best gaming experience.
The Hardware Monitor function lets you keep an eye on vital system metrics in real-time. You can customize what you want to monitor.
This is the very first step in a new direction and Dragon Center will evolve to grow and improve in the months ahead.
Please try the current BETA build of Dragon Center and let us know what you think!
