NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti rumours emerge with a monster 450 W TDP and 21 Gbps VRAM
VideoCardz claims to have received the RTX 3090 Ti specifications, previously thought to be the RTX 3090 SUPER. Supposedly, current roadmaps do not include an RTX 3090 SUPER at all, with the RTX 3090 Ti taking its place. VideoCardz states that NVIDIA recently shared the specifications with its board partners.
According to the website, the RTX 3090 Ti has a GA102-250 GPU with 10,752 CUDA cores, 84 clusters, 84 RT cores, 336 Tensor cores and 128 ROPs. Clock speeds remain unknown, but VideoCardz asserts that the RTX 3090 Ti has 21 Gbps VRAM, 2.5 Gbps faster than the RTX 3090's. The RTX 3090 Ti also has 2 GB VRAM modules, rather than the 1 GB modules that the RTX 3090 uses. The Ti card still only has 24 GB of GDDR6X VRAM.
Consequently, the RTX 3090 Ti will feature a new PCB and a huge 450 W TDP. Allegedly, the RTX 3090 Ti will include a new power connector for PCIe Gen 5 compatibility. VideoCardz speculates that this will be a 16-pin Micro-Fit connector, shown below.
Reputedly, NVIDIA will unveil the RTX 3090 Ti in January 2022, presumably at CES 2022 in Las Vegas. VideoCardz believes that RTX 3070 Ti 16 GB and RTX 2060 12 GB cards will arrive simultaneously too, with the latter serving as low-end competition to AMD's Radeon RX 6600.
