Multiple AiB partners are starting to discontinue their RTX 3090 graphics card featuring blower-style custom cooling solutions, including MSI, Gigabyte, ASUS, Galax and Emtek.
Since the launch of the Nvidia RTX 3090, AiB partners such as MSI, Asus, Emtek, Gigabyte, and Galax have launched their own graphics cards featuring blower-type cooling solutions. Now after a very short window of availability, attempts at taming the RTX 3090 with a blower cooler are seemingly being scrapped.
As reported by VideoCardz, there are five models that have been discontinued: Emtek RTX 3090 24GB Blower Edition, Asus RTX 3090 24GB Turbo, Galax RTX 3090 24GB Classic, Gigabyte RTX 3090 24GB Turbo, and MSI RTX 3090 24GB Aero.
Some of these AiB partners also have RTX 3080 and RTX 3070 GPUs cooled by blower-style coolers. For example, Asus has the RTX 3080 and RTX 3070 Turbo cards which are still available, but the Galax RTX 3080 Classic has been discontinued alongside the RTX 3090 model.
Most AiB partners have not issued a statement regarding the discontinuance of these cards, except for MSI. As per Techradar, MSI stated that the RTX 3090 24GB Aero graphics card has been “removed for the moment”, meaning we might see it return at a later date.
