As a new series of MSI graphics cards, the 1905MHz Boost is higher than the previous generation 1815MHz,. The high frequency will certainly bring power consumption increase, three 8pin power supply interface with the previous generation of products the same. The graphics card still provides two BIOS, but the standard frequency and TDP settings of the two BIOS are identical, only in the cooling strategy is different.
GPU-Z infographic (the left is the game mode, the right is the silent mode):
BIOS details, the default Power Consumption Wall is 370W, the maximum can be unlocked to 430W, the upper limit is very high.
Temperature wall 83℃,upper limit 91℃.
The actual maximum GPU Boost frequency detected during the test was up to 1995MHz.
The new MSI SUPRIM series also has a new design language, the graphics card is mainly black, the box is white
The video interface is equipped with a standard HDMI 2.1 and 3 DisplayPort 1.4a.
Length (without baffle) about 33.5cm
Height (including the end of the baffle) about 15.5cm
Thickness of about 6mm, proper three-slot card

Room temperature and humidity at the time of testing:
The chart below shows the 3DMark performance benchmarks and Furmark stress test results for the MSI GeForce RTX 3080 SUPRIM X 10G in two different BIOS (GAMING mode/SILENT mode) with default settings of power consumption, frequency and fan settings.
As the difference between the two BIOS of the graphics card is only in the fan strategy, the two score performance is basically the same; although there is a temperature wall, but because both default to 370W TDP, so the frequency gap in the Furmark stress test is also relatively small.
However, such a strong BIOS must have a price, the machine in the Furmark stress test power consumption reached 480W, very impressive!
The noise performance in silent mode is much improved, and the consequent increase in core temperature does not bring much performance penalty. The fan strategy under the silent BIOS is surprising, not only setting the fan curve, but also having a fan acceleration/deceleration time, allowing the temperature/noise to float within a certain range. The maximum and minimum fan speeds, as well as the Furmark temperature curve, can be seen in the graph below, which shows that the silent BIOS has been tuned to a certain level.
In the actual use of silent BIOS for a long time when the game, the graphics card will slowly increase the speed due to the temperature rise, lowering the temperature; in reaching the threshold when the fan has not been reduced to the minimum speed, so the temperature will be further reduced until the temperature slowly back to the threshold, and so on. The addition of fan acceleration and deceleration time will make it difficult for users to detect this behavior of the graphics card, but for users who stink of games, wear headphones, as long as the noise is not fighter level can be ignored.
With a default 370W, maximum 430W BIOS, and three 8-pin power connectors, the MSI GeForce RTX 3080 SUPRIM X 10G is enough for gamers to discover the full overclocking performance of their graphics cards. Power consumption is performance, but the increase in performance comes at a price, the rise in power consumption will bring an increase in temperature, SUPRIM X provides dual BIOS is to allow users to choose between temperature and noise. The highlights of this card are the great looks, the high TDP BIOS and the silent BIOS. Maybe not, all you need is its BIOS.
