MSI adopts graphene in new GeForce RTX 30 Series Gaming Trio GPUs

Graphene is one of the most fascinating natural materials in the 21st century. What makes graphene incredibly special is its tensile strength, conductivity, weight and thinness. With a height of just a single atom arranged in a hexagonal lattice, graphene enables limitless possibilities in applications. It’s the same material that’s found in aerospace aircrafts of NASA.

Graphene is created from a single element, carbon, formed by just one type of bond. It’s amazing that carbon, the sole constituent of graphene, is actually all around us, in fact, the fourth most common in the entire universe.

This single sheet of atoms brings incredible properties—200x stronger than steel, harder than diamond, and incredibly flexible. American Scientist states that “graphene is a perfect anomaly in the world of chemistry.”

Graphene’s potential is undeniable and it has the potential to change the course of innumerable industries.

Which brings us to the world of computing, specifically graphics cards. MSI has adopted graphene in its latest GeForce RTX 3080/3070 Gaming Trio graphics cards.

Harnessing the futuristic material in the backplate of its graphics card, the benefits are clear cut—4x stronger than a plastic backplate and also delivers 20x more efficient heat dissipation.

MSI also introduces distinct improvements over other competing GeForce RTX graphics cards in the market by using a 3×8 pin power connector instead of a 2×8 pin. This helps provide a more stable and consistent power output. This also reduces the risk of card and motherboard malfunction and instability.

The Taiwanese gaming component maker currently offers two main product lines—Gaming Trio and Ventus, ranging from the GeForce RTX 3070 Gaming Trio to the top-of-the-line GeForce RTX 3090 Gaming X Trio 24G; GeForce RTX 3070 Ventus 2X to GeForce RTX 3090 Ventus 3X OC 24G.
