Design

The design of the series is based around the ATX form factor. Moreover, a fan is placed to create wind-flow through the grilled panel up above.

The connector variety of the power supply units is rather broad as well. A dedicated 8-pin slot for PCIe graphics is in place. Around two 8-pin slots have been made for the CPU. However, the ATX connector comes in the standard format. Furthermore, SATA and peripherals get up to four 6-pin plug-ins.

MSI’s Bundle Package

MSI has also decided to create a bundle package. The MPG GF Series will be accompanied with a 12-pin Micro-Fit 3.0 power adapter. This would allow a seamless user experience with the GeForce RTX 30 Founder Edition cards.

The prices are expected to be released soon.

In Conclusion

In our opinion, MSI has set itself up rather well. The launch has been timed exquisitely to coincide with NVIDIA’s upcoming GeForce RTX 3000 graphics cards series.

Moreover, they designed their power supply units specifically catering to the NVIDIA RTX 3000 graphics cards. This allows them to market their product even more as a necessity to be bought alongside the next-gen GeForce cards.

Furthermore, they have made quite the effort to ensure that whatever requirements have to be met are seen to efficiently. For instance, we know that the upcoming flagship NVIDIA RTX 3090 is going to be an absolute beast and will eat power supplies for breakfast. MSI’s product design makes sure that it can keep up with the new card’s power requirements.

However, there are some uncertainties regarding the product. This is the very first time MSI has developed a power supply unit. When companies promise so much on a new product launch, rarely does the product live up to the hype. However, MSI already has a great reputation within the gaming world and this could be yet another addition to their solid lineup of gaming products.

As for their durability, it is simply too soon to make a call at the moment. The specs surely seem great but whether they live up to the promise or not is yet to be seen.
