Nvidia’s RTX 3090 isn’t just faster than an Xbox Series X; it’s taller too!

Yesterday, Nvidia revealed its RTX 30 series of graphics cards, and they were game-changing. Not only do they deliver consumers a generational leap in performance, but they also deliver an unprecedented increase in value for money. 

With Nvidia’s RTX 3090 graphics card, Nvidia has launched its largest, and strongest, Geforce graphics card to date. How large is Nvidia’s reference/Founders Edition RTX 3090? It’s larger than an Xbox Series X, at least in terms of length. The size comparison above comes from Shen Lee on Twitter. 

Computationally, Nvidia’s RTX 3090 is more powerful than the graphics chip inside the Xbox Series X, has more total memory thanks to its 24GB bank of GDDR6X memory and will be significantly more expensive thanks to its £1,399 price tag. The graphics card is also 313mm (12.3 inches) long, and 138mm (5.4 inches) wide. The Xbox Series X is 301mm long and 151 mm wide. While we do not know Microsoft’s Xbox Series X pricing, we can be certain that it won’t cost more than £1,399.

Nvidia’s RTX 3090 is longer than an Xbox One X, and Xbox Series X and a fat PS4. This will make Nvidia’s RTX 3090 a difficult graphics card to use within Mini ITX PCs, though that is to be expected from a graphics card that can consumer 350 watts of power. Nvidia’s RTX 3090 is Nvidia’s strongest graphics card to date, but that performance comes with an increase in size and power requirements.
