Nvidia is asserting a brand new flagship GPU at the moment, the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti. Whereas the wait continues for Nvidia’s Ampere successor, the RTX 3090 Ti is right here to show Nvidia can nonetheless squeeze extra efficiency out of its current 8nm GA102 chip.
Nvidia is simply teasing the RTX 3090 Ti at the moment, and it’s the familiar-looking triple-slot design we’ve seen on the RTX 3090. Each playing cards might look similar, 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 a virtually 7.7 % quicker reminiscence clock, offering further efficiency for 4K gaming and AI duties.
Nvidia says the RTX 3090 Ti can even embody 40 teraflops of GPU efficiency, round 11 % quicker 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, nevertheless it definitely appears just like the RTX 3090 Ti might be round 10 % quicker than the RTX 3090 on paper.
Simply how a lot this further efficiency will impression energy necessities isn’t clear but, both. Rumors suggest the RTX 3090 Ti might 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 advisable PSU.
All of those numbers imply little or no with out sport benchmarks or pricing, although. Nvidia isn’t sharing these particulars at the moment, so we’ll have to attend on detailed opinions to see how effectively 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 shocked if the RTX 3090 Ti launches across the $2,000 mark.
Nvidia is promising extra particulars on the RTX 3090 Ti later this month.
