MSI RADEON™ RX 6800 GAMING TRIO SERIES

GAMING TRIO has been refreshed with a new look while maintaining the same great balance between performance, cooling and low-noise that gamers have come to trust. Mystic Light adorns the exterior of the graphics card, illuminating color in sync with the rest of the PC through Mystic Light Sync and Ambient Link, all controlled with the Dragon Center software utility.

l   Torx Fan 4.0 - A new fan design features pairs of fan blades bound together with an outer link, forming a rim that focuses airflow into the updated TRI FROZR 2 cooling system.

l   Core Pipes - Precision-machined for maximum contact over the GPU and to spread the heat along the full length of the heatsink for optimal cooling.

l   Graphene Composite Backplate - A matte-finish backplate not only reinforces the graphics card, but also provides passive cooling with the implementation of thermal pads.

MSI AFTERBURNER

MSI Afterburner is the world's most recognized and widely used graphics card overclocking software. It gives gamers full control of their graphics card and enables them to monitor key system metrics in real-time. Afterburner provides a free performance boost for a smooth in-game experience thanks to higher FPS. The latest version of Afterburner will support the new Radeon™ RX 6800 Series graphics cards.

MSI DRAGON CENTER

Dragon Center unifies all MSI software for components, desktops, laptops and peripherals within a brand-new software platform. Gamers can customize graphics card performance in the software, such as with Gaming Mode that instantly optimizes the hardware for the best gaming experience, including SSD, monitor and network settings. This budding new software platform will continue to improve and evolve with more exclusive functions and benefits for MSI users.
