01 Apr NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti Launches for $1,999, Around 10% Faster Performance
NVIDIA has finally launched the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, its new flagship, Ampere-class gaming graphics card with 10,752 CUDA cores and 24 GB of 21 Gbps GDDR6X memory. The “Big Ferocious GPU,” as the company likes to call it, is 60% faster than the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and 55% faster than the TITAN RTX, according to NVIDIA.
NVIDIA hasn’t provided any details on what that delay was all about, but the company did confirm the MSRP of the new BFGPU. The GeForce RTX 3090 Ti officially costs $1,999, a price tag that makes it $500 more than the standard GeForce RTX 3090 model.
You’ll probably need a new power supply
After Igor Wallossek at Igor’s Lab tested the card, he determined you should set aside 550W to 600W of power consumption just for the graphics card (accounting for the occasional spike in power draw). Demands like that are going to require a power supply offering around 1,000W, which is likely going to be a step up for most people.
so if you’re thinking of taking the plunge and buying an RTX 3090 Ti, make sure you check that your existing power supply can handle it. And if you’re building a new PC from scratch, don’t make the mistake of getting a power supply that isn’t up to the task.
The absolute best performance
it is an absolute beast when it comes to performance. According to Anthony Garreffa at TweakTown, Nvidia’s latest “tops the benchmark charts without a problem, besting the previous RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3090 graphics cards we’ve looked to for the best performance from a GeForce GPU.”
In almost every game TweakTown tested, the RTX 3090 Ti offered the best performance around. Indeed, in some cases, it makes 4K ultra gaming at 120 frames per second (fps) easily within reach. Even 8K gaming at 60 fps, as silly as it might sound, is doable with this monster of a card.
So, if you’re after the absolute best gaming graphics card on the planet, then the RTX 3090 Ti is undoubtedly the top option.
