Nvidia's RTX 3090 Ti graphics card is a gaming monster
It's official, Nvidia now has a new flagship-level graphics card, a gaming GPU that appears to max out the potential of the company's Ampere architecture, the RTX 3090 Ti.
With 24 GB of 21 Gbps GDDR6X memory, 40 TFLOPS of compute performance and 78 TFLOPS of ray tracing performance, Nvidia's RTX 3090 Ti is a monster. While Nvidia has not revealed the exact specifications of their it's compute performance is around 12% faster than an RTX 3090, and its memory is around 7.7% faster. That's a hefty upgrade, though it remains to be seen how much these upgrades will benefit gamers.
Sadly, Nvidia has been tight-lipped about its newest graphics card, revealing few of the GPU's core specifications and nothing about the graphics card's price. With the RTX 3090 Ti having RTX 30 series branding, it is clear that this GPU is still Ampere, with rumours stating that its using a fully tapped version of the company's 8nm GA102 silicon.
Nvidia has not detailed the RTX 3090 Ti's power requirements, clock speeds, or core specifications. That said, recent leaks have already filled in those gaps, suggesting that the RTX 3090 Ti only features 256 more CUDA cores, significantly higher clock speeds (than and RTX 3090), and a power target of 450W, an 100W increase. That said, we will need to wait for Nvidia to officially reveal the RTX 3090 Ti's specifications before we considered these leaks confirmed.
With Nvidia's RTX 3090 having an MSRP of $1499, we expect Nvidia's RTX 3090 Ti graphics card to have a price tag that is at at least $1799. We expect Nvidia to release more details about its RTX 3090 Ti over the coming weeks months.
