GeForce RTX 3090 Ti Is Here – the Fastest GeForce GPU

The RTX 3090 Ti launched today at $1999 as NVIDIA’s fastest GeForce GPU yet. BTR did not get one for review like we did when the RTX 3090 released, so if you want to check out the reviews all linked from one Reddit mega thread, head over to r/nvidia. It appears the new Ti which is powered by Ampere – NVIDIA’s second geneneration RTX architecture – features the full chip with 10,752 CUDA cores and boasts 78 RT-TFLOPs, 40 Shader-TFLOPs and 320 Tensor-TFLOPs of power using 24GB of fast 21Gbps GDDR6X memory. It appears to be around 5-10% faster than the vanilla RTX 3090.

Here is NVIDIA’s pre-release information:

Today NVIDIA officially launched the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti GPU. It’s powered by Ampere—NVIDIA’s 2nd gen RTX architecture—features a record-breaking 10,752 CUDA cores, and boasts 78 RT-TFLOPs, 40 Shader-TFLOPs and 320 Tensor-TFLOPs of power. And It’s packed with 24GB of the fastest 21Gbps GDDR6X memory.

The GeForce RTX 3090 Ti is primarily designed for our most ambitious users – those building research systems for data science and AI, or processing large data sets, and those making massive projects in creative applications. As well as developers or CG animators working with detailed models, super high resolution textures and massive sets. It’s also for anyone who simply desires the very fastest GPU on the planet.

Content Creators Dream GPU

The GeForce RTX 3090 Ti is an artists’ dream and tailored for advanced creators, allowing them to edit insanely large models, work on production-quality video, or edit in multiple apps at the same time. Rendering in applications such as Blender, Maya or Cinema4D not only requires a more powerful GPU, they require more GPU memory. The RTX 3090 Ti delivers between 42%-102% more performance than the RTX 2080 Ti and TITAN RTX in these rendering apps. And because the RTX 3090 Ti features a massive 24 GB of memory, it can handle datasets that are twice as large as those that fit into the memory footprint of the original RTX 3080 Ti.

Video editors will see huge advantages as well. For example, working with 8K RAW projects in DaVinci Resolve featuring REDCODE, Raw (R3D) files uses most of the 10GB of memory available on the original GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. Adding a GPU memory-intensive effect such as Temporal Noise reduction, or SpeedWarp retiming can easily exceed the memory available on the RTX 3080 Ti, resulting in out of memory errors within the application. Performing the same memory intensive operations with the RTX 3090 Ti allows editing to continue normally without having to reduce the project complexity.

Gaming at 8K

Of course, there are folks who hanker to game at the highest resolution with everything enabled. They crave the most immersive experience no matter the price, have the bragging rights to prove it, and they are the early adopters of next-generation 8K displays. The GeForce RTX 3090 Ti lets you to play, capture, and watch your games in brilliant 8K HDR with DLSS Ultra Performance mode for 8K gaming, HDMI 2.1 for single cable connectivity to 8K TVs, GeForce Experience support for 8K HDR game capture, and AV1 decode for efficient playback of 8K HDR streamed video.

Today’s most graphically intense games don’t take full advantage of the horsepower the RTX 3090 Ti offers. And that’s fine. The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti was built for those who want top-of-the-line gaming performance without the added benefits (and cost) of the RTX 3090 Ti. With respect to gaming performance only, the RTX 3090 Ti is on average 64% faster than the RTX 2080 Ti, 52% faster than the TITAN RTX and 9% faster than the previous RTX 3090, respectively.

Pricing for the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti starts at $1,999 USD. In the US, the Founders Edition version of the RTX 3090 Ti will available from Best Buy online. Please contact our AIC partners for specific product and pricing information. Please note that general global availability today has been impacted by the latest Covid surge and shutdowns in China, but we expect this to improve throughout April.
