CES 2022 | Nvidia's TFLOPs numbers for the RTX 3090 Ti are about 11-13% higher than the RTX 3090; no specs detailed but most of them are already known ↺
Nvidia launched several new GPUs during its CES 2022 keynote event including the RTX 3050 for desktops and RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti for laptops with Max-Q Gen 4. Alongside these, Nvidia also offered a sneak peek at its upcoming BF-GPU refresh, the RTX 3090 Ti.
Nvidia didn't delve much into the various aspects of the card and just gave a cursory overview of the kind of performance that can be expected. According to Nvidia, the RTX 3090 Ti is capable of 40 shader TFLOPs, 78 RT TFLOPs, and 320 Tensor TFLOPs. For perspective, the RTX 3090 offers 36 shader TFLOPs, 69 RT TFLOPs, and 285 Tensor TFLOPs.
Nvidia will detail the specs and gaming performance later this month, but we have known some of the key ones for quite some time now via various leaks. For those not aware, the RTX 3090 Ti will be based on the 8 nm GA102-350 GPU and feature 10,752 CUDA cores, 24 GB GDDR6 VRAM with Micron 2 GB modules that offer 21 Gbps memory speed.
The RTX 3090 Ti is also poised to be the first GeForce card in history to offer 1 TB/s memory bandwidth. The card is also expected to feature 84 RT cores, 336 Tensor cores, and 128 ROPs. Only the base and boost clocks are missing at this point.
The upgrade from the RTX 3080 to the RTX 3080 Ti looked good on paper, but we observed only about a 15% performance gain in most games at 4K Ultra. It's still early to guess but with only about 10-12% difference in specs from the RTX 3090, it remains to be seen how much of a performance incentive the RTX 3090 Ti can offer. This is important as the RTX 3090 Ti is expected to be rated a 450 W TDP, which is100 W above that of the RTX 3090 Founders Edition.
Ultimately, it all depends on how game engines can make the most of these upgraded specs. In any case, we should be knowing more in a few weeks' time, so stay tuned.
