NVIDIA’s CES 2022 event is rumoured – and pretty much confirmed – to include announcements regarding the RTX 3090 Ti and the rest of the 30-series of cards.
NVIDIA’s conference showstopper has been leaked though, as is usually the case with any high-profile release from the green powerhouse. AMD has also seen its new announcements spread across the internet. With so much information out there, it’s time to get down and pick through the pieces of what’s been leaking out the pipes.
NVIDIA 3090 Ti Specs
The powerhouse card is seeing an upgrade, that we know for certain. NVIDIA’s 3090 is a beast, designed to be the nuke you drop on your workflow for creative content or to crush gaming performance with zero worries about overhead for the next few years. The Ti variation will bring a bit more power, both in terms of performance and in the rumoured need for a grotesque 1275 watt minimum power supply for certain brands.
If you’ve upgraded to 3090 recently, I wouldn’t worry too much, as the 3090 Ti appears to be only 7.7% faster, so an increment, rather than a full overhaul. Blood from a stone and all that. However, this near 8% improvement is thanks to the apparent 24GB GDDR6X memory, clocked in at around 21Gbps. While it’s the same amount of memory in the original 3090, this is a faster variation.
Also leaked is the Founders Editon of the 3090 Ti, continuing NVIDIA’s trend of going to market first before everyone else. These cards are usually that bit more powerful than the base model, with an apparent max clock speed of 1860 MHz and a base clock speed of 1560. An image of this card leaked, from what looks like a prepackaged video for the CES presentation.
|Base Clock (MHz)||1560||1395|
|Boost Clock (MHz)||1860||1695|
|Memory||24GB G6X||24GB G6X|
|Bandwidth||1008 GB/s||936 GB/s|
Where to buy the NVIDIA 3090 Ti
With the ongoing chip shortage, don’t expect to be able to grab one of these easily. Bots, scalpers and more have made their intentions clear that these are for them. So unless you manage to get lucky through NVIDIA’s presumed repeat of their queuing system or grab one when the other manufacturers get their versions out, it could be another long wait until they become actively available again.
However, we’ll keep tabs on when these retailers start launching them.
NVIDIA 3090 Ti release date
The NVIDIA 3090 Ti is set to be released later in January, with a leaked date being the 27th, though we’ll know more when NVIDIA have their press conference.
