NVidia GeForce RTX 3090
NVidia today launched its $1,999 GeForce RTX 3090 Ti. Following a mysterious delay, the “fastest GPU on the planet” is now in stock at various retailers, including ASUS, Colorful, EVGA, Gainward, Galax, Gigabyte, INNO3D, MSI, Palit, PNY and Zotac. Also available will be a Founders Edition board available at Best Buy online.
The GeForce RTX 3090 Ti and 3090 are big, beastly GPUs with TITAN-class performance. They double down on ray tracing and AI performance with enhanced Ray Tracing Cores, Tensor Cores, and new streaming multiprocessors, powered by NVIDIA’s second-generation RTX architecture. In addition, they have 24 GB of G6X memory to deliver the ultimate gaming and creation experience.
GeForce Game Ready Drivers provide the best gaming experience. They’re fine-tuned in collaboration with developers and extensively tested across thousands of hardware configurations in order to achieve maximum performance and reliability. NVIDIA Game Ready Drivers also allow you to optimize game settings with a single click and provide you with the latest NVIDIA technologies. That’s what we call Game Ready.
As with the RTX 3090, the RTX 3090 Ti has the same triple-slot design, and both cards, at first glance, seem identical. The RTX 3090 Ti is powered by an 8nm GA102 chip and 24GB of GDDR6X running at 21GB/s, maximising Nvidia’s existing 8nm GA102 chip’s potential. Total memory bandwidth of 1008GB/s is achieved using the same amount of VRAM as the RTX 3090, but with a 7.7% faster memory clock.
In addition to 40 teraflops of performance, Nvidia’s RTX 3090 Ti features a base clock of 1560MHz and a boost clock of 1860MHz. With the base clock speed of 1395MHz and the boost clock speed of 1695MHz, that’s a significant improvement over the 36 teraflops on the RTX 3090. There are also 10,752 CUDA cores, 78 RT-TFLOPs, and 320 Tensor-TFLOPs in the RTX 3090 TI.
Nvidia claims that the RTX 3090 Ti will be 64 per cent faster than the RTX 2080 Ti and nine per cent faster than the RTX 3090. Although Nvidia marketed the RTX 3090 primarily towards 8K gaming during its launch, the company is now positioning the RTX 3090 Ti towards creators, professionals, and anyone who wants the fastest GPU for gaming or creative tasks.
In applications such as Blender, Maya, and Cinema4D, or on research systems for data scientists who work with large sets of data, the RTX 3090 Ti is designed to handle big projects. Developers and CG animators who work with large sets, high-resolution textures, and detailed models might also find the RTX 3090 Ti useful.

BAR THAT IS RESIZABLE
The resizable BAR is an advanced PCI Express feature that allows the CPU to access the entire GPU frame buffer at once, improving performance in many games.
Price and power will be the actual trading off factors here. Starting at $1,999, the RTX 3090 Ti is likely to be on many partner boards going beyond the $2,000 mark. The GeForce “gaming” card, which retails for nearly $2,000, is a first, despite the fact that cards like the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 have traded at similar prices through 2021.
The RTX 3090 Ti will also require a lot of power. As the card consumes up to 450 watts (with some boards exceeding that), you’ll need a power supply cable to deliver 850 watts at least. The power draw of the RTX 3090 was 350 watts, but the power supply required was 750 watts. Nvidia has also introduced a 16-pin PCIe Gen5 power cable in place of its 12-pin connector. As most power supplies don’t come with these cables, Nvidia provides a dongle with three 8-pin connectors.
Prices for the RTX 3090 Ti are likely to put many off, particularly gamers, since it’s a 30 per cent markup over the RTX 3090 with only a 9 per cent performance bump. Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3090 Ti is currently available starting at $1,999 if you want to boast ownership of the “world’s fastest graphics card.”
