EK Expands its Classic Line With a Strix RTX 3080, 3090 GPU Water Block

EK, the leading computer cooling solutions provider, is ready to offer its Classic design GPU water block for ASUS ROG Strix edition of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards. Minimalistic design with fewer details makes this EK-Classic Line water block more affordable while still offering all the qualities of an EK product, such as high performance, excellent customer support, and a comprehensive installation manual.

The EK-Classic GPU Water Block Strix RTX 3080/3090 D-RGB has a big purpose-designed 126 mm wide and 237 mm long copper base to cover and cool all key components on the GPU printed circuit board. This gives it an advantage on the market of having a clean design, showing off all the cooling liquid, and cooling all the necessary components.

NVIDIA Announces New CMP Series Specifically Designed for Cryptocurrency Mining; Caps Mining Performance on RTX 3060

This is a big one: NVIDIA has officially announced a new family of products specifically designed to satiate the demand coming from cryptocurrency mining workloads and farms. At the same time, the company has announced that the RTX 3060 launch driver will include software limitations for cryptocurrency mining workloads specifically correlated with Ethereum mining, essentially halving the maximum theoretical hashrate that could be achieved from a purely hardware perspective. The new family of products, termed CMP (Crypto Mining Processor) series, will see its products under the HX branding, and will be available in four different tiers: 30HX, 40HX, 50HX and 90HX. These products will not have any display outputs, and therefore are not applicable for gaming scenarios.

NVIDIA's stance here is that their new product will bring some justice in the overall distribution of its GeForce graphics cards, which are marketed and meant for gaming workloads. The new cryptocurrency-geared series will be distributed by NVIDIA authorized partners in the form of ASUS, Colorful, EVGA, Gigabyte, MSI, Palit, and PC Partner (more may be added down the line). There is currently no information on what silicon actually powers these graphics cards; and of course, the success of this enterprise depends on A) the driver restrictions not being limited to the RTX 3060 graphics card - it isn't clear from NVIDIA's press release if other RTX 30-series graphics cards will see the same performance cap. Even if NVIDIA did release those drivers, however, cryptocurrency miners would just opt to, well, not update them. So it is possible that NVIDIA will release a revision of the RTX 3090, RTX 3080, RTX 3070 and RTX 3060 Ti with silicon enhancements that will only work with the latest GeForce drivers - after allowing the channels to move all of their existing, cryptocurrency-enabled stock.

NVIDIA GPUs Have Hotspot Temperature Sensors Like AMD

NVIDIA GeForce GPUs feature hotspot temperature measurement akin to AMD Radeon ones, according to an investigative report by Igor's Lab. A beta version of HWInfo already supports hotspot measurement. As its name suggests, the hotspot is the hottest spot on the GPU, measured from a network of thermal sensors across the GPU die, unlike conventional "GPU Temperature" sensors, which reads off a single physical location of the GPU die. AMD refers to this static sensor as "Edge temperature." In some cases, the reported temperature of this sensor could differ from the hotspot by as much as 20°C, which underscores the importance of hotspot. The sensor with the highest temperature measurement becomes the hotspot.

GPU manufacturers rarely disclose the physical locations of on-die thermal sensors, but during the AMD Radeon VII, we got a rare glimpse at this, in a company slide, with the sensors being located near components that can get the hottest, such as the compute units (pictured below). Igor's Lab put out measurements of the deviation between the hotspot and "GPU temperature" sensors on a GeForce RTX 3090 Founders Edition card. There's a much narrower deviation between the two (between 11-14°C), and than the one between hotspot and Edge temperature on an MSI Radeon RX 6800 XT Gaming X Trio (which posts a 12-20°C difference).

UK Parliament Members Aim to Introduce Bill to Fight Scalping... But the Problem is a Complex One

Members form the UK Parliament are apparently preparing to introduce a bill that would regulate the scalping phenomenon that's being witnessed worldwide. According to Scottish politician Douglas Chapman, in an interview to IGN, "The issue of scalping first came up with constituents contacting me to explain their frustration about being unable to get hold of certain games consoles or computer components pre-Christmas." He then expanded on that by adding that "On investigation, we uncovered more details of the unscrupulous practice of 'scalping' by automated bots to bulk buy these goods and sell them on at inflated prices." Oh, and this bill is unlikely to pass, by the way.

Scalping, however, isn't done only in the UK; it's a pervasive international issue that crosses borders. And scalping, as it is known, is nothing but a form of speculation, which some might say is part of the backbone that keeps the world's capitalist blood pumping through the economy - some might even argue that scalping occurs directly due to mechanisms of supply and demand, and thus, isn't an unlawful activity in and of itself. Companies, corporations, and all other legal entities, however, have to adhere to strict anti-monopoly/anti-cartelization laws, which deal with the same base issue, although in another facet of it. The problem is that it appears that in some countries, speculation is regulated at the enterprise level, but not at the citizen level. And herein lies the crux of it.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30-Series GPU Availability to Reportedly Worsen in Q1

The availability of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3000 series "Ampere" graphics cards has been a problem ever since it launched. High demand paired with insufficient supply has caused quite some disturbance in the supply chain and has caused the MSRP of the GPUs to increase. Firstly, we were promised that the situation would resolve around May when NVIDIA is expecting to match the supply with the demand. However, according to the recent report, that might not be the case. Alternate, a European retailer operating in Belgium, the Netherlands, and Germany, has spoken to NVIDIA about the supply of the GeForce RTX 3000 series Ampere graphics cards.

According to the retailer, the situation with the card is such that the availability is scarce. When it comes to the GeForce RTX 3090, there are very few deliveries, but only a few open orders. The RTX 3080 sees very few cards coming with many open orders. The RTX 3070 has few cards incoming, but few open orders. And last but not least, the RTX 3060 Ti has very few cards coming, and a moderately high amount of open orders. If you are aiming to buy a card, your best chances would be with RTX 3090 and RTX 3070, as they do not have such high demand. On the other hand, RTX 3080 and RTX 3060 Ti cards are almost impossible to source as they all have a big waiting list. Alternate says that they work on a "first in first out" principle of delivering cards to consumers, so if you are not on the list you are likely going to wait for even longer.

EMTEK Launches Blower-Style GeForce RTX 3090 Graphics Card

EMTEK has only graced our news feed once before, mostly due to it being a behind-the-scenes board partner for NVIDIA. More than release their in-house designs, the South Korean company usually provides them for other AIBs, such as Palit. However, the company has recently been moving their graphics cards towards the consumer market as well, and the latest in the batch is a custom-designed GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card, marketed under the "Blower Edition" product SKU.

The "Blower Edition" RTX 3090 from EMTEK features a more mainstream dual-8-pin power delivery connector with a twist: the company adapted NVIDIA's PCB design and added a daughter card, which extends the original PCB so as to allow the connectors to be placed in the more practical manner of generations past. The RTX 3090 "Blower Edition" otherwise offers the usual 3x DisplayPort, 1x HDMI connectors, and features a bronze design with a bronze backplate as well; a somewhat subdued design language is used, though the color choice would be a hard one to integrate into most hobbyists' systems.

GALAX GeForce RTX 3090 Hall Of Fame (HOF) Edition GPU Breaks 3 GHz Barrier and 16 World Records

GALAX has just yesterday launched its top-end GeForce RTX 3090 Hall Of Fame (HOF) edition graphics card. Designed with overclocking in mind, the card was spotting many interesting design solutions like 12 layer PCB, 26 phase VRM power delivery configuration, and three 8-pin power connectors. If you were wondering if any application is going to use that much power and if all of that is really needed, don't search for an answer any longer, because GALAX has managed to break some world records with its HOF design. According to the company, the cards sent to overclockers have managed to break 16 world records, which you can find listed below.

Overclockers like OGS from HwBox Hellas OC Team and Rauf from Alza OC have managed to push their HOF cards over the 3.0 GHz barrier, which represents the first GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card to achieve such frequencies. Having the right design. OGS has managed to OC the HOF design to 3015 MHz, while the overclocker Rauf has managed to pull off exactly 3000 MHz. You can find their HWBOT entries in the source.

GALAX Shows Off GeForce RTX 3090 Hall Of Fame (HOF) Edition Graphics Card

GALAX has today decided to take the lid off its upcoming premium GeForce RTX 3090 Hall Of Fame (HOF) edition graphics card and showcase to the world what the company has been working on. The HOF edition is usually GALAX's highest-end custom graphics card design with one simple goal - ultimate performance. Featuring all-white aesthetics, the card has a 12-layer white PCB with a white three fan air cooler. The air cooler features three fans with one in the middle being 92 mm and the other two being 102 mm. The card comes paired with HOF Panel III, representing a small 4.3 inch LCD screen that can stand on its own or stick to the GPU using magnets. It is used for some software diagnostics like temperature monitoring.

The GPU comes with a diamond-shaped aluminium backplate used for additional heat dissipation. When it comes to power delivery, there are three 8-pin connectors (also colored in white to match the aesthetics), that supply 26 VRM phases for the power delivery system. Such configuration is envisioned for extreme overclocking purposes like LN2. There are two BIOS versions, P and S variants, where they are used for maximum performance or quieter operation respectively. The boost frequency of this GPU is 1875 MHz (using one-click OCing), however, any buyer of such a card is not going to just use it like that and will probably prefer to push higher frequencies.

Kosin Demonstrates RTX 3090 Running Via Ryzen Laptop's M.2 Slot

Kosin a Chinese subsidiary of Lenovo has recently published a video showing how they modded their Ryzen notebook to run an RTX 3090 from the NVMe M.2 slot. Kosin used their Xiaoxin Air 14 laptop with a Ryzen 5 4600U processor for the demonstration. The systems internal M.2 NVMe SSD was removed and an M.2 to PCIe expansion cable was attached allowing them to connect the RTX 3090. Finally, the laptop housing was modified to allow the PCIe cable to exit the chassis and a desktop power supply was attached to the RTX 3090 for power.

The system booted and correctly detected and utilized the attached RTX 3090. The system performed admirably scoring 14,008 points in 3DMark TimeSpy, for comparison the RTX 3090 paired with a desktop Ryzen 5 3600 scores 15,552, and when paired with a Ryzen 7 5800X scores 17,935. While this is an extreme example pairing an RTX 3090 with a mid-range mobile processor it goes to show the amount of performance achievable over the NVMe M.2 connector. The x4 PCIe 3.0 link of the laptop's M.2 slot could handle a maximum of 4 GB/s, while the x16 PCIe 3.0 slot on previous generation processors offered 16 GB/s, and the new x16 PCIe 4.0 connector doubles that providing 32 GB/s of available bandwidth.

GALAX GeForce RTX 3090 Hall Of Fame (HOF) PCB Pictured, Features Massive VRM Configuration

GALAX is preparing to launch its flagship graphics card based on NVIDIA's Ampere lineup of GPU, specifically the GeForce RTX 3090 variant. The company is currently developing the GeForce RTX 3090 Hall Of Fame (HOF) edition GPU that is supposed to have a regular HOF treatment. That means a white aesthetics (white PCB plus white cooling solution), a massive three fan air-cooler, and of course, a PCB that is designed for extreme overclocking. Today, thanks to the sources over at VideoCardz, we have the first look at the PCB of GALAX's upcoming GeForce RTX 3090 HOF edition graphics card.

Featuring a massive VRM configuration consisting out of 26 phases, the GPU is swimming in VRM phases and it is the highest number of VRM phases we have seen on any GeForce RTX 3090 GPU. It is not exactly clear from the pictures how much of the total 26 VRMs is going to Vcore (GPU), and how much to Vmem (memory). To power the card, there are three 8-pin power connectors. It is important to note that these specifications are not finalized, as this is only a prototype. Nonetheless, the card is made with LN2 extreme overclocking in mind and is going to probably be more expensive. There are event probes for voltage measuring directly from the card, to avoid having to do it in software. NVLINK fingers are present as well, meaning that dual-card setups are still an option with this GPU. The real product is expected to arrive sometime in February according to the source, however, we don't know the exact date or pricing.

EK Water Blocks Releases Founders Edition RTX 3090 Special Edition Block

EK, the leading computer cooling solutions provider, is proud to finally unveil its Special Edition high-performance GPU water blocks for NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Founders Edition graphics card. The EK-Quantum Vector FE RTX 3090 D-RGB, just like the 3080 model, comes in two versions - Silver and Black, both featuring stark contrasts between the aluminium outer shell and backplate, as well as the Plexi window and terminal illuminated with addressable D-RGB LEDs.

These water blocks come with two types of connection terminals, offering unrivaled versatility. The performance is one of the key elements of the design, which is why this block features a 30% larger fin area compared to other water blocks from the Vector family.

MSI Unveils GeForce RTX 30-series SeaHawk X Graphics Card

MSI today unveiled the GeForce RTX 30-series SeaHawk X graphics cards, flagship custom-design cards. At this point, the company is still deliberating on which GPU to base the card on (whether it's RTX 3080 or RTX 3090, although we predict the company could go with the latter). Like every SeaHawk-branded card before it, the RTX 30-series SeaHawk X is characterized by a factory-fitted AIO closed-loop liquid cooling solution. The latest-generation SeaHawk X cooler, co-designed by Asetek, features a large copper cold-plate that cools not just the GPU via a micro-fin lattice, but also memory chips surrounding the GPU. The AIO pump-block located at the card's end of the cooler features Asetek's latest low-noise pump.

The MSI RTX 30 SeaHawk X is connected to a 240 mm x 120 mm aluminium radiator, which is ventilated by a pair of 120 mm TorX 4.0 fans that feature webbed impellers. On the card itself, a single fan is installed on the cooler, which ventilates a series of heatsinks that cool the VRM. An aluminium back-plate cools the memory chips on the reverse side of the PCB. MSI optimized the fans to completely turn off (including the radiator fans), below a temperature threshold. The pump runs at all times. MSI hasn't finalized the clock speeds of the card, or its price.

Following ASUS' Lead, EVGA and ZOTAC Increase NVIDIA RTX 30-series Pricing

ASUS was the first AIC partner to announce that due to increased costs in procuring supplies and components for PC component manufacture, it would be increasing prices on its motherboards and graphics cards. That announcement from ASUS seems to have opened the floodgates on other manufacturers, as now both EVGA and ZOTAC have increased pricing for their graphics cards - specifically for NVIDIA's RTX 30-series.

EVGA took a similar approach to ASUS, and announced via its website the changes in pricing and their effective date - January 11th. The company's announcement (which you can read in full after the break) sees pricing increase at around $70 across the board of already-launched NVIDIA RTX 30-series graphics cards. The company will still honor users in the queue system for a new graphics card with the previous pricing structure, should their orders complete through April 16th.

COLORFUL Releases NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Neptune and RTX 3060 Series

Colorful Technology Company Limited, a professional manufacturer of graphics cards, motherboards, all-in-one gaming and multimedia solutions, and high-performance storage, releases the iGame GeForce RTX 3090 Neptune OC-V graphics card featuring a high-performance all-in-one liquid cooling solution. The COLORFUL iGame GeForce RTX 3090 Neptune comes in a slimmer 2-slot form-factor with a 240 mm AIO liquid cooler. It features RGB lighting on its central core fan that delivers eye-catching RGB illumination that's fully customizable via the iGame Center App.

COLORFUL also introduces its line-up of GeForce RTX 3060 Series graphics cards which consist of the Advanced, Ultra White, and NB Series models. Each model comes with a different set of premium features, designed to deliver performance for gamers today.

EVGA Teases GeForce RTX 3090 KINGPIN Hydro Copper Graphics Card

Jacob Freeman, Global Product Management Director at EVGA, has posted a teaser on his Twitter account for EVGA's upcoming GeForce RTX 3090 KINGPIN Hydro Copper graphics card. The KINGPIN lineup of graphics cards represent the highest-end design from EVGA, and it is built for extreme overclocking with the use of LN2 and with extreme voltages applied. The newly teased GeForce RTX 3090 KINGPIN Hydro Copper card is built for overclocking, however, this model is designed to be cooled by water as there is a water block mounted on the card itself. Called "hydro copper" the name is pretty self-explanatory as it implies that the water block is made out of copper for the best possible heat transfer.

The water block top is build using clear acrylic so the liquid inside the block can be seen. There are integrated RGB lights to customize your build and make the GPU fit in with your flashing lights using EVGA's software. The GPU is most likely going to feature a boost frequency of 1920 MHz, just like its brother GeForce RTX 3090 KINGPIN Hybrid card. Also, an XOC (Extreme Overclocking) BIOS is expected to be applied from the factory, which would bring the maximum power to 450 Watts. Pricing and availability are unknown at the moment.

Colorful Announces Six-Card Limited Edition Graphics Card: RTX 3090 iGame Vulcan RNG Edition

Colorful has announced a limited-edition, six-part reinvention of its RTX 3090 iGame Vulcan graphics card. The new card simply adds RNG to the name, a homage to Chinese e-Sports team RNG (Royal Never Give Up), who have climbed to fame through their League of Legends antics - the perfect use-case for an RTX 3090 GPU, obviously.

Colorful has changed the color profile of the card, trading in the gray color found in the vanilla RTX 3090 iGame Vulcan for a satin gold finish. The backplate has also received a special treatment, with a golden graphic depicting all six team members of the e-Sports team. Five of these cards will be given to clan members - a great partnership payment if I've ever seen one), while the last one will be offered via social media. We're looking at another collector's graphics card, although its development nature and graphics might affect its final selling price. All in all, this 6-card edition likely represents at least half of the available stock for the RTX 3090 GPU.

MSI GeForce RTX 3090 AERO is a Throwback to the GTX 480 "Fermi"

MSI today unveiled the GeForce RTX 3090 AERO, the latest in the crop of RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 graphics cards with rear-venting lateral airflow coolers, such as the ASUS RTX 3090 Turbo OC and the GIGABYTE RTX 3090 Turbo, targeting environments with restricted airflow (such as rendering farms). The MSI RTX 3090 AERO strongly resembles the reference-design of NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 480 "Fermi."

The card's blower guides air-flow laterally through an aluminium fin-channel heatsink that isn't hidden underneath a cooler shroud, but rather extends all the way out to the thickness of the card, with its top-plate having some finnage of its own. Much like the ASUS card, the MSI AERO uses two 8-pin PCIe power connectors that are located its tail-end, rather than at the top. Only half of the card's reverse side is covered by a back-plate, meant to cool the memory chips located there. The other half is bare PCB. This has been done to make it easier for an adjacent card to breathe. The card otherwise sticks to NVIDIA-reference clock-speeds for the RTX 3090. The company didn't reveal pricing.

ZOTAC Releases GeForce RTX 30-series PGF Graphics Cards in China

ZOTAC has had a rather spartan custom RTX 30-series lineup in the West, with only its Trinity, Twin-Edge, and Holo board designs covering the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 series. The company plans to change this, with the introduction of a better endowed custom board series, under the PGF series. ZOTAC debuted the PGF brand with the GeForce GTX 10-series "Pascal" family, mostly in the Greater China region, and targeted at enthusiasts. The RTX 20-series "Turing" didn't see PGF branded cards. It now makes a comeback with the RTX 30-series "Ampere." As with the older cards, these are being launched as China-exclusive. It remains to be seen if they reach Western markets.

Both cards feature a common board design with a large triple-slot, triple-fan cooling solution that's dunked in RGB LED embellishments. Both cards feature exotic VRM components such as multi-phase capacitors for better electrical noise suppression. The RTX 3080 PGF comes with GPU Boost frequencies of 1770 MHz (vs. 1710 MHz reference), while the RTX 3090 PGF does 1755 MHz GPU Boost (vs. 1695 MHz reference). The RTX 3070 PGF runs up to 1785 MHz GPU Boost (vs. 1725 MHz reference), and there's even an RTX 3060 Ti PGF, doing 1725 MHz GPU Boost (vs. 1665 MHz reference).

EK Water Blocks Launches EK Classic for Reference RTX 3080 and RTX 3090

EK, the premium computer liquid cooling gear manufacturer, is introducing a new EK-Classic water block, created specifically for reference-design-based NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 graphics cards. The new EK-Classic GPU water block is a part of the EK-Classic Lineup, which is directly addressing price-conscious users while reusing some of the key technology solutions and a timeless design that established EK as the market leader in the PC liquid cooling industry.

This water block is purpose-designed with a much thicker 11.2 mm copper base to clear the tall capacitors on most reference design graphics cards. This gives the water block advantage on the market of having a clean design and a wider compatibility list, without sacrificing any coolant flow restriction. The block features additional cutouts on the base to accommodate non-standard fan-headers and additional PCB components that certain reference designs have.

NVIDIA Extends Availability of Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War Bundle for RTX 3080, RTX 3090 to January 2021

NVIDIA has decided to extend the availability of their bundle offer for the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 graphics cards. The company announced last October that gamers who purchase those particular graphics cards would receive a code for the latest entry in the blockbuster Call of Duty franchise. In hindsight, this wasn't much of a big deal for the company; considering general availability for the RTX 30-series, it stands to reason that not many codes were activated, anyway. However, and probably in relation to the continuing shortages on NVIDIA's latest GPUs, the company has extended the bundle's offer through January 11th 2021 - the same day CES is happening. Codes must be redeemed via the GeForce Experience application on a system with a qualifying graphics card installed.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Graphics Card Launch Postponed to February

In the past, we heard rumors about NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card. Being scheduled for January release, we were just a few weeks away from it. The new graphics card is designed to fill the gap between the RTX 3080 and higher-end RTX 3090, by offering the same GA102 die with the only difference being that the 3080 Ti is GA102-250 instead of GA102-300 die found RTX 3090. It allegedly has the same CUDA core count of 10496 cores, same 82 RT cores, 328 Tensor Cores, 328 Texture Units, and 112 ROPs. However, the RTX 3080 Ti is supposed to bring the GDDR6X memory capacity down to 20 GBs, instead of the 24 GB found on RTX 3090.

However, all of that is going to wait a little bit longer. Thanks to the information obtained by Igor Wallosek from Igor's Lab, we have data that NVIDIA's upcoming high-end GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card is going to be postponed to February for release. Previous rumors suggested that we are going to get the card in January with the price tag of $999. That, however, has changed and NVIDIA allegedly postponed the launch to February. It is not yet clear what the cause behind it is, however, we speculate that the company can not meet the high demand that the new wave of GPUs is producing.

ASUS Intros ROG Strix White Variants of its GeForce RTX 30-series Graphics Cards

ASUS today introduced White variants of its Republic of Gamers (ROG) Strix custom-design GeForce RTX 30-series graphics cards. These card have essentially the same board design as the original ROG Strix RTX 30-series, but with streaks of matte-white and brushed-metal making up the cooler shrouds, back-plates, and impellers of the three Axial-Tech fans. The PCB underneath is still black. The RGB LED embellishments are identical to those on the original ROG Strix cards. The cards also feature the same factory-overclocked speeds as their original-design siblings.

Among the variants ASUS is launching are the ROG-STRIX-RTX3090-O24G-WHITE and ROG-STRIX-RTX3090-24G-WHITE, based on the RTX 3090; ROG-STRIX-RTX3080-O10G-WHITE and ROG-STRIX-RTX3080-10G-WHITE based on the RTX 3080; and ROG-STRIX-RTX3070-O8G-WHITE and ROG-STRIX-RTX3070-8G-WHITE, based on the RTX 3070. The company didn't reveal pricing, although we expect these cards to be priced at a slight premium over the original ROG Strix RTX 30-series.

MSI Cargo Containers Chock-Full of RTX 3090 Graphics Cards Allegedly Stolen, $336,500 Value at MSRP

Now this is the first one such article I've ever written, which goes to show just how strange and crazy this pandemic time is. MSI has allegedly been the victim of a well-coordinated theft that managed to divert no less than 40 cargo units holding NVIDIA's flagship GeForce RTX 3090 graphics cards from one of MSI's manufacturing sites in China. These cargo units aren't freight containers, to be clear; they're the sealed cardboard boxes with a manufacturers' seal that are shipped to retailers, with each cargo unit containing (usually) between five and six cards.

The cards are being valued at 2.2 Million Yuan, which is roughly $336,500 in US dollars, when priced at MSRP. That amounts to roughly 224 RTX 3090 GPUs. Of course, these cards will be much more valuable in the black market, since actual availability of the cards in the retail space is so constrained. MSI is offering a reward of 100 thousand Yuan for any information that leads to the recovery of the stolen cargo.

EK Water Blocks Launches MSI RTX 30-series SUPRIM and Gaming Trio Water Blocks

EK, the leading computer cooling solutions provider, is ready to offer its premium high-performance GPU water block for the MSI Trio and Suprim editions of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards. This new water block is named EK-Quantum Vector Trio RTX 3080/3090 D-RGB and is exclusively engineered for MSI Trio and Suprim RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 GPUs.

The new water block is one of the larger ones in the 3000 series, so make sure your PC case can accommodate it. It's 157 mm wide and 320 mm long and cools all key components on the GPU's printed circuit board. This gives the water block advantage on the market of having a clean design, showing off all of the cooling liquid, and cooling each and every necessary component.

Retailer ProShop Gives a Peek into the Stark Reality of RTX 30-series Supply Situation

Danish online retailer ProShop, via its German outlet Proshop.de, responding to criticism on lack of inventory of GeForce RTX 30-series graphics cards, came clear with the numbers. The retailer tabulated its entire RTX 3060 Ti, RTX 3070, RTX 3080, and RTX 3090 inventory, along with numbers of cards shipped by manufacturers in response to orders placed by the retailer to them, providing a valuable insight into the stark reality of the GeForce RTX 30-series availability situation. We see zero fulfillment of orders by manufacturers for several graphics card models; and very limited fulfillment in cases where the manufacturer decided to fulfill some of the orders, with the manufacturers barely shipping 20% of the cards ordered by the retailer.

These numbers fly in the face of the theory that demand for the RTX 30-series is "unprecedented." If you go by what NVIDIA or AMD say, graphics cards are reaching retailers, and flying off the shelves sooner than stocks could be replenished. This would hold ground if there was a near parity between cards ordered by this retailer, and order fulfillment by manufacturers; which clearly isn't the case. With mounting "outstanding customer (end-user) orders," ProShop.de is having to put pre-orders on hold for several cards indefinitely. The lists can be accessed from the source link below.
