With NVIDIA announcing the new GeForce RTX 40 Series (with the RTX 4090 and RTX 4080) in stylish Founders Edition form overnight, we've now got a look at some of the partner cards coming from the likes of MSI, ASUS, Gigabyte, Zotac, and more. As per the reveal the RTX 4090 drops in October, with the RTX 4080 following in November - so no doubt these will be making their way to retail stores.

MSI GeForce RTX 4090 and RTX 4080 SUPRIM, SUPRIM Liquid, Gaming and Ventus GPUs




SUPRIM cards are designed for performance, efficiency, and prestige. Cooled with TRI FROZR 3S, MSI’s most advanced air cooling system, heat is effectively dissipated from critical board components with TORX FAN 5.0, up to 10 Core Pipes, Airflow Control fins featuring new Wave-curved 3.0 edges and air antegrade fins. At its heart, the RTX 4090 and RTX 4080 16G based models have a vapor chamber, while the RTX 4080 12G based model will boast a massive nickel-plated copper baseplate. Brushed aluminum on the exterior of the cooler and the backplate impart an armored aesthetic while reinforcing the length of the card. RGB Mystic Light flows with millions of colors and an array of customizable dynamic lighting options will dazzle onlookers. With Dual BIOS, users can quickly opt for low noise or for additional performance with the flick of a switch. All SUPRIM models are just as impressive in size as they are in performance, with the RTX 4090 based model taking up 3.75 slots, while the RTX 4080 models are a whopping 3.75 and 3.5 slots respectively.


SUPRIM LIQUID. Besides the air cooled versions of the SUPRIM series, this generation will also introduce a version with the name SUPRIM LIQUID. Only available on the GeForce RTX 4090, this series applies a closed-loop liquid cooling system that keeps temperatures even lower to allow new levels of performance. The 240 mm radiator is cooled by a pair of MSI Silent Gale P12 120 mm fans, designed to provide massive air pressure at extremely low noise. A single TORX 5.0 fan on top of a dedicated heatsink ensures more than adequate cooling for the power delivery components.


GAMING TRIO has been refreshed with a new, yet familiar look while maintaining the same great balance between performance, cooling, and low-noise that gamers have come to trust. Leading this updated product series is the new TORX Fan 5.0 design with pairs of three fan blades bound together with an outer link, forming a rim that focuses airflow into the updated Tri Frozr 3 cooling system. At the core of the heatsink, the RTX 4090 and 4080 based models featured the proven nickel-plated copper baseplate. The new GAMING TRIO series is fitted with a Dual BIOS to allow easy switching between Silent mode or Gaming mode for more performance. A brushed-metal backplate with flow-through design reinforces the graphics card, while also providing passive cooling action through the implementation of thermal pads. Mystic Light adorns the exterior of the graphics card, illuminating color in synchrony with the rest of the PC through Mystic Light Sync and Ambient Link. These new GAMING TRIO cards feature an impressive size with the RTX® 4090 based model taking up 3.75 slots and the RTX® 4080 based model coming it at 3.25 and 3 slots each.


The popular VENTUS series is back, now fitted with three of the award winning TORX 4.0 fans. The embodiment of a no-frills Spartan design philosophy, VENTUS cards maintain the essentials to accomplish any task at hand. A robust cooling system, reinforcing brushed aluminum backplate, and well-rounded aesthetic make this graphics card suitable for any build. Being the more understated series, the two remaining RTX 4080 based VENTUS 3X models are even slimmer at 3 and 2.5 slots each.

ASUS GeForce RTX 4090 and RTX 4080 ROG STRIX and TUF GPUs




If you want to make a statement with the best gaming card money can buy, look no further than the new ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4090. In order to extract the ultimate performance from the Strix GeForce RTX 4090, we built it with cooling as our top priority. The card’s 3.5-slot design consists of a die-cast metal frame, shroud, and backplate. The ultra-rigid structure uses frames with extremely tight tolerances to prevent the PCB from sagging or warping, while still allowing for unparalleled airflow through an enlarged pass-through vent along the back of the 357mm long card. But with an ultra-powerful GPU like the GeForce RTX 4090, we wanted to go further than a large heatsink and vented backplate. So we rebuilt the heatsink design from the ground up, with a new vapor chamber and 30% more surface area for heat dissipation than the previous generation ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3090.

For a high-performance card that merges style and substance, the new ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4080 16GB is an excellent choice for your next-gen powerhouse of a PC. Whether you’re playing gorgeous games with high-resolution graphics or frantic esports where every single frame is crucial, the overclocked ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4080 16GB pushes this new GPU to the height of its potential. In order to do that, this 3.5-slot cooler design uses the same die-cast metal frame, shroud, and backplate as the ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4090, providing next-level rigidity for the PCB. At 357mm long, it offers a massive heatsink for plenty of heat dissipation, as well as a backplate with an enlarged vent for airflow to pass through.


For outstanding performance with a sturdy design, the TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4090 has you covered. Slightly thicker than its ROG sibling at 3.65 slots, the TUF model measures a bit shorter at 348mm for wider case compatibility, with excellent performance, cooling, and power management. The TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4090 uses a die-cast unibody shroud that mates directly to an aluminum backplate to strengthen the overall structure and protect the PCB from sagging, while still offering lots of airflow. An updated 3D acrylic TUF logo along the shroud provides ARGB lighting compatible with Aura Sync, while a detachable velcro loop offers extra cable management options. A massive vent at the edge of the backplate allows even more air to flow through the fins from the larger Axial-tech fans, providing 20% more airflow than last generation’s TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3090 Ti.

Built with high performance and long-lasting durability at its core, the TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4080 16GB brings next-gen performance in a sturdy design. Compared to the TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3080, this new card boasts a die-cast unibody shroud and aluminum backplate to protect the PCB underneath, with a 3.65-slot thick heatsink for next-level cooling. That’s slightly thicker than the Strix variants of this card, but also measures more than 9mm shorter for wider case compatibility. A trio of our Axial-tech Fans create ample airflow for this powerhouse, with the rightmost fan blowing air through a new vent along the edge of the backplate. Significantly larger than the previous generation, this vent allows for cool operation while sporting a TUF logo that spans both the backplate and the vent frame for a unique look. Underneath, an updated 3D acrylic TUF logo shines on the edge of the shroud with ARGB lighting, which can be coordinated with the rest of your PC using Aura Sync. A Dual BIOS switch lets you choose between performance and quiet modes, or get to manual tweaking with our GPU Tweak III software.
