Summary

Nvidia's new flagship goes by the name of GeForce RTX 3090 and offers a whopping 24 GB of graphics memory for the consumer sector for the first time. Nvidia clearly deviates from the reference design of the RTX 2000 cards in terms of cooling. Unlike with the MSI GeForce RT 3090 Suprim X, Nvidia does not include a graphics card support stand with its model.

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 Founders Edition offers 1x HDMI 2.1 and 3x DisplayPort 1.4a connections. The graphics card also has a very high-quality feel, and the card also offers a fan-stop mode. In high resolutions with many details, the graphics card can fully show its strengths as the Unigine Superposition test very well shows.

Reviewers from Pcworld have found the following[***]:
The $1,500 GeForce RTX 3090 delivers “Titan-class performance,” and that's no exaggeration. You can even game at 8K -- not 4K, 8K—with some titles on this so-called “BFGPU.” The GeForce RT 3090 will absolutely melt your face (and your render times) in many content creation tasks. The upgraded RT and tensor cores help with playing ray traced games at 1440p and 4K resolution.

Pros[**]
  • Titan-class performance
  • 24GB of GDDR6X memory
  • Impressive 4K gaming performance
Cons[**]
  • Not as powerful as the RTX 20-series

techradar[3]

Sentiment Score[*] 67%
Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 is built on the Nvidia Ampere architecture. This means that CUDA core counts per SM is effectively doubled, which is why the card is such a rendering behemoth. Compared to the Titan RTX, it's a massive price cut, where that card cost $2,499 (£2,399, AU$3,999)

Sentiment Score[*] 82%
Reviewers from Tomshardware have found the following[***]:
The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 Founders Edition now claims the top spot on our GPU benchmarks hierarchy. At 350W TGP, this is by far the most power hungry consumer GPU Nvidia has ever released. This is very much a GPU designed for 4K ultra gaming, and at those settings, it's 12% faster than the 3080.

Pros[**]
  • More power than the RTX 3080
  • Much faster than the 3080 in our test suite
  • Great performance for the price
Cons[**]
  • Not as powerful as 3080
