NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti is official. After a wait of about three months, the Californian manufacturer has definitively removed the veils from its new top of the range RTX 30 which, needless to say, will take the place of the infamous GeForce RTX 3090 announced in September 2020 (review). Briefly unveiled at the latest CES in Las Vegas, the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti is one extreme card which, like its “ancestor”, is not aimed directly at gamers but more at content creators and those who work in areas such as rendering and 3D applications.
In recent weeks the rumors have been many, which is why the technical characteristics were already known and are now definitively confirmed by NVIDIA. GeForce RTX 3090 Ti is based on the more thrilling version of the GPU Ampere GA102, not only for the amount of processing units, but also for the clock rate. We are talking about a slightly more powerful chip than the one we find on the RTX 3090, but alongside one Faster GDDR6X VRAM (21 Gbps) which, while maintaining the same 24GB capacity, now guarantees one 1 TB / s bandwidth.
Before summarizing the technical data sheet, we point out two further innovations, not actually specified by the manufacturer in the official press release: the first concerns the TDP of the card, a whopping 450 wattsthe second instead of the adoption of new PCI-E 5.0 16pin power connector (or 12 + 4 pins). At the moment we have not yet had the opportunity to touch the performance of the RTX 3090 Ti in games, but according to NVIDIA we are facing a solution the 64% faster than an RTX 2080 Ti and which, according to the data, will guarantee a processing capacity of 40 TFLOPS (or 9% more if we look at the previous model RTX 3090).
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti is equipped with 84 Streaming Multiprocessor for a total of 10,752 Cuda Core; the RT Cores and Tensor Cores increase – even if slightly -, while as regards the GPU frequency, we go from the 1,695 MHz of the RTX 3090 to the 1,860 MHz of the newcomer which, needless to say, will arrive on the market with higher frequencies in the custom proposals of partners. We close, at least for the moment, with the list price, $ 1,999.99that is 500 dollars more than its ancestor (or if you want + 33%), a figure that in Italy translates into 2,249 euros (always Founders Edition); stay tuned to HDBlog to see the first tests in the games of the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti that we will propose shortly in a dedicated review.
