Gigabyte releases a blower and dual-slot NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 with a 350 W TDP
The GeForce RTX 3080 may have a 320 W TDP, but Gigabyte has decided to release a blower version of the RTX 3090, which has an even higher power limit. Specifically, the GeForce RTX 3090 TURBO 24G has a 350 W TDP. According to Gigabyte, the fan design is optimised ' greater airflow and efficient heat dissipation' thanks to its closely stacked intake fan.
The GeForce RTX 3090 TURBO 24G measures 266.7 x 111.16 x 39.8 mm, making it a dual-slot card. Naturally, Gigabyte markets its size as a being 'ideal for multi-graphic cards with a space-restricted chassis', which is true for most dual-slot cards. However, the TURBO 24G will probably be one of the few dual-slot examples of the RTX 3090, given the scale of the Founders Edition. The TURBO 24G also supports NVIDIA NVLink, which is exclusive to the RTX 3090.
The TURBO 24G has dual 8-pin power connectors, along with two DisplayPort 1.4a and HDMI 2.1 ports. It is worth noting that Gigabyte has mounted the power connectors on the edge of the card, rather than on the top. The company also recommends a 750 W PSU for the TURBO 24G, but it is yet to confirm the card's core clock or pricing.
