Gigabyte RTX 3090 Ti OC Review

Introduction

It can't have escaped your notice that there is a new GPU on the block in the form of the RTX 3090 Ti.

What it brings to the party at the top end of the Nvidia range is a combination of an improved clock speed, more CUDA cores, but probably the thing we love the most is that it's slightly more sanely priced - all things being relative - and actually available to buy. If you've spent any of the past couple of years desperately trying to get your mitts on a graphics card then you'll understand that performance is almost secondary to the ability to be able to purchase one at a shelf price, rather than buy a second hand one at the kind of money usually reserved for forgotten Picassos or a surprise Henry Moore sculpture in your back garden.

We've already seen that the RTX 3090 Ti is everything one would expect from a new flagship Nvidia graphics card, and so today it's time to discover whether the Gigabyte model still brings all that glory to our eyeballs and what the price point is. Let's find out the first, and we will get to the second in a dozen or so pages time. Read on.

Technical Specifications

256 extra CUDA Cores and a significant boost to the clock speeds all around ensure that the Ti is worthy of the name, famous as it is. Vanilla Nvidia cards are exciting, but the Ti models have a lengthy history of being the desirable one.

£2000 for a card that will be (almost) matched by a card costing (4070) a third as much in 6-8mths, with ~3090 levels of performance



..even the resale value of these cards will collapse, if the intention is to move it on as soon as the new cards from Nvidia are announced.Quote

I have yet to see a collapse on any Nvidia card since the 1080ti days. They hold very well. Mostly because its just incremental fps increases. 2080ti saw almost no increase but RT introduced, 3080ti bumped that up, and GPU shortages kept the 20x series riding high on the resale market.

Even if GPU supply is bountiful, I think the trend will hold simply due to the costs of the current gen (40xx once its released)Quote
