MSI RTX 3080

MSI has finally launched the factory overclocked RTX 3080 Sea Hawk X which features a liquid AIO Cooler. The card was first showcased 3 months ago when MSI unveiled the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 Sea Hawk graphics cards including the Sea Hawk X and the Sea Hawk EK X models. And now, the RTX 3080 Sea Hawk X has launched for gamers to unleash their full gaming potential.

The RTX 3080 Sea Hawk X is MSI’s first liquid-cooled RTX 3000 series card and the most important part of the card is its AIO cooling solution. The AIO is powered by an ASETEK pump that is outfitted with a micro-fin copper base that cools the GPU and VRAM modules.

The liquid is cooled using a 240mm AIO equipped with two MSI Torx Fan 4.0 which offer 70% increased air pressure over standard PWM fans while spinning at 35db. The singular Frozr fan on the shroud is used to cool the VRM and the memory modules are equipped with large thermal pads for better heat dissipation.

Coming to the specifications, the RTX 3080 Sea Hawk X obviously features the GA102-200 GPU that has 8074 CUDA cores, 272 TMUs, and 96 ROPs. It comes with a base clock of 1440 MHz and a boost clock of 1785 MHz. It features 10GB of GDDR6X memory with a memory clock speed of 19 Gbps. The Sea Hawk takes advantage of a custom PCB powered through dual 8-pin power connectors.

Currently, it is the only liquid RTX 3000 series card that MSI has launched. We are yet to see the Sea Hawk EK X on the RTX 3080 and both the Sea Hawk X and EK X on the RTX 3090. This will certainly be one of the more expensive cards as it is factory overclocked as well as liquid-cooled. Currently, pricing and availability are not known for this card.
