Nvidia has announced the launch of the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, the world’s most powerful new consumer graphics card.
With a price of 1,999 dollars (which rises to 2,249 € in Europe), the RTX 3090 Ti is a variant of the GA102 GPU from the American firm, with a frequency increase at the processor level (1560MHz base and 1860MHz boost) and memory. which allows it to reach 40 TeraFlops of power and a bandwidth of 21Gbps. There is also a slight increase in the number of CUDA nodes, which should be 10,496 on the RTX 3090 to 10,752 on the RTX 3090 Ti.
All this translates into an increase in returns of around 7%, according to the first benchmarks. The price to pay, without embargo, is high: not only in terms of cost (€600 more than the RTX 3090, with a recommended price of €1,649), but also in terms of energy consumption, which goes from 350W to 450W with the new graphics card.
Nvidia’s regular partners, such as Asus, Colorful, EVGA, Gainward, Galax, Gigabyte, INNO3D, MSI, Palit, PNY or Zotac, have already confirmed that they will launch customized versions of this new GPU on the market. Without knowing more details, without any restrictions, it is very likely that their models are better than those of Nvidia.
