NVIDIA launches the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti

Comes with quite a price tag

Published

on

The controversy surrounding the GeForce RTX 30 series is one for the ages. Despite the hype, NVIDIA fell through a host of problems. The ongoing chip shortage caused a lot fewer GPUs to fly from the shelves. Additionally, scalpers scooped up the scant stock. Now, as an encore to the wild series, NVIDIA has launched a follow-up model, the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti.

As expected, the new model boasts improvements over the former leader, the RTX 3090. Instead of the original’s 82 streaming multiprocessors, the RTX 3090 Ti has 84 of the same through an Ampere architecture. It also has faster clock speeds, running at 1.56GHz base and 1.86GHz boosted.

Further, the GPU carries 24GB of GDDR6X memory with 21Gbps of memory speed. Of course, the improved power will consume more energy. It consumes 450W of thermal design power, instead of the original’s 350W of power.

The GeForce RTX 3090 Ti does cost quite a pretty penny. The GPU will set customers back by a staggering US$ 1,999, around US$ 500 more than the original RTX 3090.

Besides the price tag, trying to grab the GPU might come with an additional layer of difficulty. As above, the ongoing chip shortage and scalper problem are taking the GPU away from consumers.

Plus, NVIDIA is likely launched a new generation — presumably the RTX 40 series — later this year.
