MSI Prepping GeForce RTX 3090 HydroGen Graphics Card

It seems that MSI is reviving one of its older series, as the GeForce RTX 3090 HydroGen has been spotted at the EEC. The HydroGen models featured a factory-installed, all-copper water block. It predates the newer Sea Hawk EK X models made in collaboration with EK Water Blocks. The last time MSI used this branding was with the GeForce GTX 580 HydroGen. Specifications and pricing are unknown at this time, but it will be interesting to see whether MSI uses the reference design or a custom PCB since Ampere has been shown to have higher overlocks with both better cooling and increased power delivery.

The Hydrogen series was last seen during Fermi architecture days. The GTX 580 Hydrogen features a preinstalled water block and was marketed as a perfect overclocking graphics card.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
