CES Brings Big Ferocious News with Announcement of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti

The rumor has been confirmed. NVIDIA® announced at its CES 2022 press conference that the new flagship GeForce RTX™ 3090 Ti GPU is on the horizon. 

Exactly when it will be released and how much it will cost, however, are still unknown. What we do know is that it’ll be the most powerful consumer graphics card when it does launch.

With nearly 3 billion gamers worldwide, and 150 million more people expected to game this year, the market for games and gaming hardware is almost $300 billion, which is up $70 billion from just 3 years ago. So, the question is not whether gaming will grow, it’s how big will it get?

NVIDIA has dedicated itself to build the best platform for gamers and creators. Its graphics technologies enable game developers and creative independent software vendors (ISVs) to do amazing work. At the heart of the platform is NVIDIA’s GPU and a history of revolutionary architectures, like RTX. On top of the hardware comes a massive investment in its software stack that harnesses the GPU to deliver graphics innovations, like game ready drivers, DLSS, G-SYNC, Reflex, NVIDIA Broadcast, Max-Q, Omniverse, and GeForce NOW.

With announcement of the Ampere-based GeForce RTX 3090 Ti graphics card, NVIDIA Senior Vice President for GeForce, Jeff Fisher, touted the new flagship as a “monster GPU.” With 40 shader teraflops, 78 RT teraflops, 320 tensor teraflops, and 24 GB of the fastest ever 21 Gb/s GDDR6X memory, Fisher called the RTX 3090 Ti the next BF-GPU (Big Ferocious GPU). By comparison, GeForce RTX 3090 packs 35.6 shader teraflops, 69.5 RT teraflops, and 285 tensor teraflops. They both have 24 GB GDDR6X memory, but RTX 3090 runs slower, at 19.5 Gb/s.  

Additionally, GeForce RTX 3090 Ti and RTX 3090 are both based on the same GA102 chip, but RTX 3090 only has 82 out of its 84 streaming multiprocessors (SM) activated, whereas RTX 3090 Ti will likely have all 84 SMs running. CUDA core count is also expected to increase from RTX 3090’s 10,496. Another prediction is the main GPU clock speed will be increased from RTX 3090’s 1,695 MHz, possibly to 1,850 MHz. Of course, we must hang tight and "tune in later this month for more details" to know for sure.
