The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 Ti is finally here and it’s a powerhouse

Back at CES 2022, Nvidia teased its latest flagship graphics card, the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti and now that GPU is finally here.

As you’d expect, the RTX 3090 Ti is one superpower of a graphics card: visually the Founders Edition looks roughly the same as the existing RTX 3090, but inside will cram in 24GB GDDR6X RAM, running at 21Gbps.

That’s a huge amount of dedicated memory and with that power and more packed inside, the RTX 3090 Ti is a real powerhouse. Nvidia claims it is 60 per cent faster than the previous generation 2080 Ti and 55 per cent faster than the Nvidia Titan RTX.

The company also says that the RTX 3090 Ti boasts the most CUDA cores yet – a record-breaking 10,752. It also has 78 RT-TFLOPs, 40 Shader-TFLOPs and 320 Tensor-TFLOPs of power.

This graphics card is aimed at “…the most demanding gamers, content creators and data scientists” delivering serious power for the most demanding users. But if you’re a gamer that demands the best then it shouldn’t disappoint there either. Maximum settings on 4K games with ray tracing turned on or 8K visuals with the help of Nvidia’s DLSS tech.

If you are planning on purchasing, you may need a bigger power supply unit though, as the 3090 Ti needs 100 watts more than the 3090 and recommends at least 850 watts with 3x PCIe 8-pin cables or a PCIe Gen 5 cable.

It’s not just the performance and power that’s huge though: the asking price is too. This Founder’s Edition version of this card is set to retail at $1,999, £1,879 and €2,249. Other models will also be available from Nvidia’s partners including ASUS, Colorful, EVGA, Gainward, Galax, Gigabyte, INNO3D, MSI, Palit, PNY and Zotac.
