Gaming Series

MSI is equipping the brand new RTX 3050 with the iconic TWIN FROZR 8 thermal design on the GAMING series. Compared to the previous generation, the dual fan design has been improved with TORX FAN 4.0, which features pairs of fan blades bound together with an outer link to focus airflow into the TWIN FROZR 8 cooling system. The heatsink features advanced aero- and thermodynamic technologies for efficient heat dissipation, lowering temperatures and maintaining high performance. The widely recognized aggressive look emphasizes a dazzling show of Mystic Light RGB infused into the card. Easily control and synchronize LED-lit components with the upgraded MSI Center software.

Ventus 2X Series

The VENTUS 2X series will also be available on GeForce RTX 3050, now enhanced with MSI’s acclaimed TORX FAN 3.0 in a dual fan configuration. The performance-focused design of VENTUS maintains the essentials to accomplish any task at hand whether it’s for play or for work. A powerful cooling system, reinforcing brushed-finish backplate, and the solid industrial aesthetic make the VENTUS card suitable for any PC build.


The power of a full-size graphics card in an incredibly small package. The MSI GeForce RTX 3050 AERO ITX series utilizes a single high-performance fan on a compact heatsink with efficient heatpipes for optimized thermal dissipation. AERO ITX graphics cards are excellent for small form factor systems, fitting into virtually any system while guaranteeing immersive gaming experiences

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.
