The TechPowerUp portal found a Radeon RX 7900 XTX graphics card in its performance at the MSI booth at CES 2023. Earlier, the manufacturer confirmed that it would delay the release of next-gen Radeon accelerators.
The company only brought a custom Radeon RX 7900 XTX to the show – played by the gaming trio Classic. The company representative explained that the model is called Classic because the company did not apply “Redesigned for 2022”, which is used on GeForce RTX 40-series graphics cards. Instead, the new product uses a cooling system that is used in the graphics cards of the Radeon RX 6000 and GeForce RTX 30 series. The latter is also one of the most efficient on the market, but this solution shows how little MSI has invested in promoting the new model.
Unfortunately, the company has not yet announced the technical specifications of the Radeon RX 7900 XTX Gaming Trio Classic. This may indicate that the novelty is still at the prototype stage and the manufacturer does not plan to launch it in the near future.
Like all premium versions of the flagship Radeon RX 7900 XTX in non-reference versions, the MSI Radeon RX 7900 XTX Gaming Trio Classic model is equipped with three 8-pin connectors for additional power at once. The card itself is big, but not as big as the GeForce RTX 40 series models. In thickness, the novelty occupies three expansion slots.
According to TechPowerUp, MSI plans to release this accelerator in the first half of 2023. What caused such a long delay in the release, the manufacturer did not specify.
