NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti Could Arrive With 21Gbps GDDR6X Memory And This Key Upgrade

Everybody’s ready with bated breath for the GPU scarcity to abate, with present fashions perpetually out of inventory and avid gamers paying out the nostril for ultra-scarce {hardware} simply to play a little bit of Halo. We’d see some aid early subsequent yr although, within the type of new GPU releases — particularly if TSMC is true about that chip hoarding report.

Although not precisely “new,” per se—at the least, not in NVIDIA’s case. What we’re speaking about is the long-rumored RTX 3000 sequence refresh. Simply as NVIDIA did with Turing, of us expect Jensen and Co. to launch refreshed fashions of the RTX 3000-series “Ampere” GPUs early subsequent yr. If you happen to’re shocked by that information, needless to say it is already been greater than a yr because the RTX 3080 hit the market.

The most recent information on this matter issues the top-end card, presumably to be referred to as the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, or presumably RTX 3090 SUPER.

In accordance with a tweet by Taiwanese tech website Uniko’s {Hardware} (reproduced above), that card can be utilizing a selected Micron GDDR6X package deal with mannequin quantity MT61K512M32KPA-21U. That particular mannequin does not seem in Micron’s half catalog but, however we are able to deduce from the mannequin quantity that it’s not solely double the density of the extant GDDR6X modules, however that it additionally runs at a better 21 Gbps switch fee.

Slapped into the configuration of the present RTX 3090, that may give the GPU some 1,008 GB/sec of reminiscence bandwidth—about an 8% enchancment over the 936 GB/sec of the present card. Together with rumors that the refreshed mega-GPU can have the GA102 chip’s full complement of 84 streaming multiprocessors enabled (for 10,720 CUDA cores), which means we’re taking a look at an actual monster of a graphics card, with improve compute efficiency, reminiscence capability, and bandwidth.

In fact, if different rumors maintain true, it is perhaps much more monstrous than we expect. Supposedly, this super-GeForce can be each scorching and power-thirsty as effectively; Twitter leaker Greymon55 beforehand claimed that the revised 3090 would get spec’d for a “400W+” whole board energy. That is nowhere close to as excessive because the rumored energy funds for NVIDIA’s next-generation elements, but it surely’s nonetheless thirsty sufficient to make us involved for our energy provides.
