MSI showed the Radeon RX 7900 series products: Adopt Tri Frozr 2.0 cooling solution
AMD’s new generation of Radeon RX 7900 XTX and Radeon RX 7900 XT graphics cards based on the RDNA 3 architecture GPU have gone on sale since December 13, 2022. Many manufacturers have launched their RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT graphics cards, including ASUS, Sapphire, PowerColor, and Biostar, etc. As a major hardware manufacturer, MSI’s Radeon RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT graphics cards have not appeared for a long time, which also surprised many players at the time.
However, in the follow-up, MSI confirmed to its staff that the Radeon RX 7900 series graphics cards will be launched, but they will not be released until the first quarter of 2023. They are all customized non-public designs and will not be OEM public graphics cards. According to Techpowerup, at CES 2023, MSI finally showed off its Radeon RX 7900 lineup, dubbed the Radeon RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT Gaming Trio Classic.
Interestingly, the heat dissipation scheme of these two graphics cards still adopts the Tri Frozr 2.0 heat dissipation scheme of the previous generation of graphics cards, namely the RX 6000 series and RTX 30 series. The Tri Frozr 3.0 cooling solution that matches the RTX 40 series is not used. MSI probably believes that Tri Frozr 2.0 is sufficient to meet the heat dissipation requirements of Radeon RX 7900 series graphics cards.
While it’s not surprising that MSI released the Radeon RX 7900 series of graphics cards, it’s a little surprising that it’s been so long behind other manufacturers, and it hasn’t been the case in the past. In addition, MSI’s Radeon RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT new cards will have a brand-new PCB design, as well as three 8-pin power connectors. Currently, MSI has not disclosed the prices and release dates of the two graphics cards.
