Meet the new king of the graphics card hill: the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti

Mar 29, 2022 Written by:ROG Article

The GeForce RTX 3090 enjoyed its day in the sun as the world’s fastest consumer graphics card. Its massive core count, vast array of speedy VRAM, and suite of GeForce RTX features made it the premiere graphics card for gamers seeking the absolute best experience at high resolutions and creators seeking copious quantities of lightning-quick VRAM. Now there’s a new contender on the block. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti stands ready to carve out a new tier of performance for demanding enthusiasts. We’re deploying this record-breaking GPU in two variants: the liquid-cooled ROG Strix LC GeForce RTX 3090 Ti and the TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3090 Ti.

The new GeForce RTX 3090 Ti graphics cards are bigger and better in every way that matters. Their list of performance improvements is crowned by a clock speed increase to their whopping 24GB pool of GDDR6X VRAM—now 21Gbps, a substantial increase from the 19.5Gbps VRAM in the GeForce RTX 3090.  For the fastest frame rates at 4K, the most realistic and immersive visual experiences, and exceptional fluidity in every GPU-accelerated workload, this is the GeForce RTX graphics card to get.

Liquid-cooled excellence with the ROG Strix LC GeForce RTX 3090 Ti

To give you the full performance of this boundary-breaking GPU, we outfit the ROG Strix LC GeForce RTX 3090 Ti with a closed-loop liquid cooling system. It starts with a custom-designed cold plate that extends over the GPU die and the onboard GDDR6X memory. This assures premium cooling for the components most responsible for raw performance. 560mm tubing gives you flexible options for installing the radiator, even in larger cases or builds that also feature an AIO CPU cooler. The 240mm radiator is cooled by a pair of 120mm ARGB fans tuned to move large quantities of cooling air at high static pressure. A blower-style fan and a low-profile heatsink under the shroud expel the heat produced by the power delivery components, all in a slim 2.6-slot design.

A suite of features makes this graphics card easy to install and set up for long-term performance. Power sensing circuitry gives you a heads up through a static LED light if you've neglected to connect the card to your PSU through its 1x16 pin power connector. That same light will pulse if the graphics card is receiving insufficient wattage. Two FanConnect II headers allow you to connect case fans to the graphics card to increase airflow when the GPU is under load. A dual-mode BIOS switch offers a choice between the highest cooling performance and clocks, or quieter operation and a mild step back in performance. Finally, 0dB tech allows the graphics card to automatically drop into silent running mode at idle and light loads.

The ROG Strix LC GeForce RTX 3090 Ti graphics is ready-made for your showcase build. Angular text and parallel lines adorn the card’s shroud. Addressable RGB LEDs on the shroud, bridge, and radiator fans case a vivid glow across your gear, and you can easily coordinate their lighting effects with the rest of your Aura-compatible gear their Aura Sync.

The TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3090 Ti stretches its wings

A new thermal solution sets up the TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3090 Ti for air-cooled supremacy. For DIYers looking for rock-solid reliability and impressive performance in a straightforward, no-nonsense design.

It starts with an angular, matte black metallic shroud with rugged industrial design cues. It covers a massive 3.2-slot heatsink that’s ready to keep GPU, VRAM, and power delivery circuity chilly, even under demanding loads. 

A trio of fans with our Axial-tech design push plenty of air through the high-surface-area heatsink. We’ve increased the width of each fan to 1.5cm to increase static pressure, and all three fans have a half-width barrier ring that focuses air right where it’s needed. The central fan rotates clockwise while the two on the flanks spin counterclockwise to reduce turbulence. This proven design allows higher RPMs and more air movement through the heatsink without a corresponding increase in acoustic footprint. A dedicated memory heatsink keeps the massive complement of GDDR6X memory cool for reliably swift performance, and a 0dB fan-stop mode allows the card to maintain silent running under light loads or at idle. The full-length backplate shows off plenty of TUF Gaming graphics, and a large cut-out ahead of the PCB provides another route for hot air to exit the heatsink.

The TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3090 Ti graphics card also features many enthusiast-friendly touches that level up the capabilities of your build. Auto-Extreme assembly technology, used across our lineup, precisely places and solders components without human intervention to boost reliability and build quality. A 144-hour testing regime and military-grade capacitors ensure out-of-the-box reliability and a long service life. And you’ll be able to personalize your TUF Gaming card to match the rest of your system using the onboard Aura RGB LEDs, too. 

As part of their formula for establishing a new tier of performance, our GeForce RTX 3090 Ti graphics cards draw more power than predecessors. To get the most out of them, we recommend a power supply with 1000W of capacity or more, depending on the specs of the rest of your system. Our ROG Strix and ROG Thor families of PSUs are already prepared to handle the demands of these cards thanks to their massive internal heatsinks and quiet fans with our Axial-tech design.

For those who dare to demand the best

Progress marches onward.  The GeForce RTX 3090 Ti shatters all boundaries as the newly crowned fastest graphics GPU in NVIDIA’s game-changing GeForce RTX 30-series lineup. Secure your own ROG Strix LC GeForce RTX 3090 Ti or TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3090 Ti graphics card to elevate your next PC DIY build to the next level.
