Nvidia RTX 3090 Ti Leak Gives Us an Idea of How Fast the GPU is

According to the most recent leak, Nvidia's upcoming RTX 3090 Ti graphics card would deliver a 10% performance bump over the vanilla RTX 3090. 

According to the inventor of the CapframeX program (which is used to record and analyze frame timings), who published some "first impressions" of the RTX 3090 Ti, they appear to have gotten - act with care and skepticism. 

According to the developer, the Ti version is approximately 10% quicker at 4K resolution than the original 3090; however, there is no performance metric(s) (presumably an average of some comprehensive testing).

According to the tweet, the GPU supports 2GHz boost clock rates and consumes 450W of power, a long-awaited capability. 

The RTX 3090 Ti contains 10,752 CUDA cores (256 more than the RTX 3090), 24GB of GDDR6X memory, and a quicker VRAM than the RTX 3090.

Analysis: Significantly More Powerful than the Standard RTX 3090

The 450W TDP is a 100W boost over the standard RTX 3090. (which sits at 350W). With Nvidia increasing the card's power consumption considerably, a decent performance improvement is expected, and anything in the ballpark of 10% fits the bill (though gaming performance may not reach double figures, depending on the exact title tested, of course).

Although enthusiasts can get the same effect by overclocking their existing Ampere flagship, this is a substantial performance improvement over the standard RTX 3090. The next question is how high overclockers will push the 3090 Ti's performance (and what cooling solution the cards will employ). 

Aside from that, there are severe reservations regarding the value proposition of this upcoming GPU, especially given the rumor mill's predictions of high costs. 

Perhaps the higher power demands are a precursor to the substantially higher probable PSU demands associated with the RTX 4000 or Lovelace series of graphics cards, which are due later in 2022.

Contradictory Pricing Information: 1,499 to 1,999 USD

The RTX 3090 Ti is expected to ship with the same MSRP as the previous model: USD 1,499. This very certainly indicates that the 3090 is receiving a price reduction since we have not heard of this component approaching the end of its life.

According to MyDrivers, the RTX 3090 Ti is 1,999 USD (for the United States) and 14,999 RMB (for China) (for China). Custom RTX 3090 Ti variants may cost up to 20,000 RMB. We can not independently verify either story.

There are contradictory rumors about the existence of a Founders Edition of the new Ti model. NVIDIA demonstrated such a card at CES 2022, but none of the reviewers we spoke with got FE for testing. This is significant for people trying to purchase an RTX 3090 Ti since it will be more difficult to obtain one at MSRP outside the approved retail partners and NVIDIA's official shop.

We've been showing bespoke RTX 3090 Ti designs for a few days now. These hefty 3 to 3.5-slot designs indicate what future 450W+ GPUs may look like. After all, the flagship RTX 40 "Ada" GPU has been tipped to be a 600W powerhouse. The RTX 3090 Ti is often referred to as a "beta" model for the following GPU series.
