EVGA offers impressive NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 KINGPIN 8K benchmark results; 360 mm radiator and three 8-pin power connectors confirmed for Ampere behemoth
It has been a few days since EVGA unveiled its KINGPIN edition of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090, a card that will undoubtedly be one of the most powerful on the market when it hits the shelves later this year. EVGA develops its KINGPIN series with Vince Lucido, an extreme overclocker who goes by KINGPIN. Lucido has now teased the board design of the RTX 3090 KINGPIN, which confirms a few aspects of the card.
Firstly, EVGA has assigned the card the model number EVGA223. EVGA's EVBot port returns, which sits next to three 8-pin power connectors. The board will also have a black and gold finish, not that one will see that beneath the card's huge cooler. Videocardz alleges that the RTX 3090 KINGPIN will have 23 power stages too, along with an Asetek Gen6 pump. EVGA has confirmed that the card will have a 360 mm radiator too. The inclusion of RGB lighting should come as no surprise, nor should an OLED screen for viewing real-time stats.
Finally, EVGA has offered some initial benchmarks of the RTX 3090 at a resolution of 7,680 x 4,320 (8K). The graphic below represents games benchmarked at high graphics settings, although we do not know the other components with which this RTX 3090 was paired. Currently we do not benchmark graphics cards at 8K, but triple-A titles like Control push cards like the RTX 2080 Ti EX to their limits even at 4K. We should point out that DLSS upscales games to 8K, which explains the framerate boost in Control, Death Stranding and Wolfenstein: Youngblood.
EVGA is yet to announce how much it will charge for the RTX 3090 KINGPIN. However, the Founders Edition will cost US$1,499, so we would expect the KINGPIN edition to go a fair bit beyond that.
