The MSI RTX 3090 Ti Suprim X's spec sheet was leaked alongside a few pictures, showing what is most likely the thickest graphics card you've ever seen. Powered by a 16-pin PCIe 5.0 power connector, MSI's upcoming flagship card is probably also the most power-demanding consumer GPU, as it has a rated power consumption of 480W.
The spec sheet and the pictures of the MSI RTX 3090 Ti Suprim X shared by VideoCardz confirm some earlier rumours. Reading the specifications, you can see the card will indeed feature 10,752 CUDA cores and 24GB of GDDR6X memory clocked at 21Gbps across a 384-bit memory bus. In addition, clock speeds will go up to 1,965MHz, but overclockers will undoubtedly go much higher.

The pictures showing the side of the card allow us to see the 16-pin PCIe 5.0 power connector, capable of delivering up to 450W of power. This much power will come in handy, as MSI lists the card's power consumption as 480W. Adding 75W from the PCIe interface from the motherboard to the 450W from the 16-pin connector, you get 525W (45W of margin).
The card features a massive 3.5-slot design to house the enormous heatsink to cool the GPU, resulting in a total weight of 2.1kg. Moreover, the pictures also show the card will have 3x DisplayPorts (1.4a) and an HDMI (2.1) port.

KitGuru says: If you're thinking about buying this card, there are some things you must consider. First, check if your case has enough space. Second, double-check if your PSU can handle the card. Third, you may also want a GPU support bracket, as this is looking to be a heavy card.
