MSI has launched its high GeForce RTX 4090 & RTX 4080 Gaming SLIM collection which cut back the general thickness from 4-slots to 3-slots.
MSI’s GeForce RTX 4090 & RTX 4080 GAMING SLIM Lineup Are Slimmer, That includes Black & White Variants
MSI had beforehand unveiled its “GAMING SLIM” GeForce RTX 40 GPUs, which featured a complete of 20 completely different fashions. The corporate showcased the mid-range graphics playing cards throughout the lineup, and now MSI has revealed its flagship GeForce RTX 4090 & RTX 4080 Gaming SLIM collection.
The MSI GeForce RTX 4090 & RTX 4080 GAMING SLIM GPU lineup is usually focused towards offering shoppers the choice of using the ability of Ada Lovelace GPUs with out worrying about their “big” measurement, contemplating many individuals could not harness the NVIDIA GPUs in compact builds.
Nonetheless, with MSI’s new Gaming SLIM lineup, these high-end GPUs have seen an excellent lower in thickness & dimensions, with probably the most notable one being NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 4090. The GAMING SLIM variant of the GPU is now confined to only three slots, which is spectacular given the truth that the business development is all about making GPUs “beefier” (Take Maxsun’s current RTX 4090 for instance).
Diving into the technical specs, the MSI GeForce RTX 4090 GAMING SLIM will now include a 62mm thickness, which is a discount of just about 20 p.c from the unique GAMING X TRIO variant. Furthermore, the GPU will even function a lower in weight, coming at 1.78 kg which can contribute in the direction of ease of constructing and eliminating the extent of “GPU sag” current within the atypical GeForce RTX 4090 variants.
MSI hasn’t gone into depth on the subject of revealing the ways adopted behind the burden discount however based mostly on the press launch photographs of the GPU, the corporate has made modifications within the backplate of the GAMING SLIM GPUs, and the lower in weight might as a result of extra cutouts all alongside the GPU chassis and the I/O port. Nonetheless, it is going to be fascinating to see how these GPUs carry out in real-time, particularly within the thermal division provided that MSI claims that modifications made would don’t have any affect on GPU temperatures.
The MSI GeForce RTX 4090 & RTX 4080 GAMING SLIM GPUs are by no means an “underclocked” or a less-performing lineup, nevertheless, there are minor clock changes current within the GeForce RTX 4070 variants. We do not have a determine on the place the GeForce RTX 4090 GAMING SLIM will probably be priced however anticipate the m near their Non-SLIM variants. The RTX 4080 Gamning SLIM will even be made in a white-colored taste although the RTX 4090 Gaming SLIM White might launch later.
