Nvidia is saying a brand new flagship GPU at this time, the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti. While the wait continues for Nvidia’s Ampere successor, the RTX 3090 Ti is right here to show Nvidia can nonetheless squeeze extra performance out of its current 8nm GA102 chip.
Nvidia is barely teasing the RTX 3090 Ti at this time, and it’s the familiar-looking triple-slot design we’ve seen on the RTX 3090. Both playing cards might look equivalent, however inside, the brand new RTX 3090 Ti will embody 24GB of GDDR6X working at 21Gbps. That’s the identical quantity of VRAM because the RTX 3090 however with an almost 7.7 % faster memory clock, offering extra performance for 4K gaming and AI duties.
Nvidia says the RTX 3090 Ti may also embody 40 teraflops of GPU performance, round 11 % faster than the RTX 3090 with 36 teraflops. There’s additionally 78 teraflops for ray tracing and 320 teraflops for AI duties. Nvidia hasn’t detailed base and increase clocks, however it definitely appears to be like just like the RTX 3090 Ti shall be round 10 % faster than the RTX 3090 on paper.
Just how a lot this additional performance will affect energy necessities isn’t clear but, both. Rumors counsel the RTX 3090 Ti may require a 1000W PSU, with a TDP of 450 watts. If correct, that’s 100W greater than the RTX 3090 when it comes to energy draw and an enormous bump to the 750W beneficial PSU.
All of those numbers imply little or no with out recreation benchmarks or pricing, although. Nvidia isn’t sharing these particulars at this time, so we’ll have to attend on detailed opinions to see how nicely this card performs in opposition to the RTX 3090 and AMD’s Radeon RX 6900 XT. Given the RTX 3090 debuted for $1,499, we wouldn’t be stunned if the RTX 3090 Ti launches across the $2,000 mark.
Nvidia is promising extra particulars on the RTX 3090 Ti later this month.
