 Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 Ti vs. AMD Radeon 6950 XT: Which GPU should you buy?

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 Ti vs. AMD Radeon 6950 XT: Which GPU should you buy?

GeForce RTX 3090 Ti. Nearly two years ago, we termed the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 a Titan in all but name, a prosumer graphics card that makes sense as a cheaper alternative to professional Quadros while simultaneously giving better gaming performance than any consumer equivalent.

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 Ti officially launched, starts at $1,999

Now the RTX 3090 Ti has arrived, moving it above the Titans and firmly into the land of the Olympians – 

 

In terms of performance, power consumption and price tag.The RTX 3090 Ti retails for £1879 in the UK and $1999 in the US, making it a hefty £480/$500 more expensive than its predecessor – that’s a 33 percent markup on what is already an expensive product. In exchange, you receive a fully-unlocked GA102 die with 2.4 percent more CUDA cores, a 9.4 percent faster boost clock, a 7.7 percent higher memory clock and a 29 percent higher rated power drain. That means we’ll see a faster card than the vanilla 3090, but gaining anywhere close to 33 percent extra performance to make the premium justifiable seems improbable at this juncture.

 

At 450W, you’ll need an 850W power supply or better to tame the beast – 

Nvidia mention that a 450W PCIe 5.0 power cable or more will offer enough juice, or three of the more conventional 8-pin PCIe inputs. That’s the Nvidia Founders Edition card, but bespoke boards are available with higher power targets – some rated near the 525W limit (!) of what’s deliverable via the PCIe connector (75W) and three auxiliary inputs (3x150W), with a 1000W PSU suggested

The subject of our review is an Asus Tuf Gaming RTX 3090 Ti OC Edition offered by British tech shop Box. This device boosts 90MHz higher than the reference norm, 1950MHz, and comes with two HDMI 2.1 connectors and three DisplayPort 1.4 ports. It has a 16-pin PCIe 5.0 power input, but a 16-pin to triple 8-pin converter is provided in the package to hook it up to regular power supply. Elsewhere, it’s a normal Asus Tuf Gaming design, with a thick 3.2-slot architecture, three axial fans, aluminium fins that span the length of the board (with a dedicated heatsink for the VRAM) and a robust aluminium shroud with RGB lights. The complete box measures 326x140x63mm (12.8 inches long, 5.5 inches broad and 2.5 inches thick), so you’ll need a capacious container or an open-air test bench to fit this card.

 

Our test bed hosts its largest ever graphics card – complete with two hydra head’s worth of power pins.

 

Our test set-up stays identical from our past GPU reviews, but here’s a quick summary if you’re just tuning in now. When current-generation graphics cards were first released in 2020, we decided to go with a Core i9 10900K system because it provided the best out-and-out gaming performance, backed by an Asus Maximus 12 Extreme Z490 motherboard, dual-channel DDR4-3600 CL16 memory, and a 2TB Samsung 970 Evo Plus NVMe drive from Box. A 240mm Eisbaer Aurora liquid cooler is keeping our CPU at 5GHz on all cores and keeping it cool.

FAQs:

Q1: Is there any RTX 3090 TI?

In fact, Nvidia didn’t release the RTX 3090 Ti for sale until months later. Following its release on March 29, 2022, it is now available for purchase.

Q2: How much is the RTX 3090 TI going to set you back?

Even though it took longer than expected, the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti was finally unveiled today with all of its details, including price and specifications.

Q3: Is the RTX 3090 TI worth the price tag?

Because the RTX 3080 cost just $699, the $1499 RTX 3090 was never a terrific deal. Because of its exorbitant price of $1999 (even though it is priced at or below the prices of several custom RTX 3090 cards currently on the market), most consumers will pass on getting an RTX 3090 Ti.

Q4: When it comes to gaming, how amazing is the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090?

RTX 3090 is the most powerful graphics card in the world. In comparison to the previous generation-champ, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, it delivers a significant performance boost, allowing you to play high-fidelity games at 8K.

Q5: How did the 3090 ti fare?

TweakTown and VideoCardz revealed that Nvidia had ceased manufacture of the flagship GPU just days after the original unveiling of the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti. The RTX 3090 Ti was supposed to be released on January 27th, however BIOS and hardware difficulties are said to have caused delays..

Q6: Differentiate between the 2080 TI is superior than the 3090?

If the RTX 3090 has the same number of CUDA cores as the 2080 Ti, it might outperform the 2080 Ti by 70% to 80% based on its clock speed.
