The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 has actually just been announced, ushering a new generation of Ampere graphics cards.
While reports that Nvidia was dealing with an ultra-powerful RTX 3090 have actually been swirling for a while now, many individuals ( including us) had a hard time to think them. After all, the last time Nvidia launched an ‘x90’ GPU was back in 2012 with the Nvidia GeForce GTX 690, which like the GTX 590 it replaced, was a dual-GPU card.
So, we’re happy to be proved wrong, as the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 is main – and it’s a beast It’s quickly the most powerful gaming graphics card Nvidia has actually ever made, and it will easily blow the PS5 and Xbox Series X out of the water when they are launched later this year.
If you’re as delighted about the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 as we are, then continue reading, as we’ve got whatever we understand so far about the new GPU below, in addition to all the most recent reports and speculation as well.
Cut to the chase
- What is it? Nvidia’s most effective gaming graphics card ever
- When is it out? September 24
- How much is it? $ 1,499(₤ 1,399, around AU$ 2,030)
RTX 3090 release date
Wccftech has released rumors that Nvidia will release three brand-new graphics cards in September, followed by another GPU in October and two more at a later date that has actually not yet been decided, with the RTX 3090 potentially being launched in the second half of September, after the RTX 3080 launch in mid-September.
In truth, those rumors were bang on the money, with the RTX 3090 launch date officially revealed as September 24.
RTX 3090 cost
We had been bracing ourselves for a high RTX 3090 rate, considering the specifications, and while we still don’t understand the price of the RTX 3090, reports have recommended that it could be as high as $2,000/ ₤ 1,500/ AU$ 2,800
It wasn’t quite as expensive in the end, at $1,499(₤ 1,399, around AU$ 2,030), however that implies it would be among the most costly gaming graphics cards worldwide. If you were thinking about getting the RTX 3090, then, it looks like you’re going to need to conserve up. A lot.
RTX 3090 specifications
For a super-high rate, you ‘d hope the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 would be a super-powerful GPU, and while we won’t know just how effective it is till our full RTX 3090 evaluation, which should come quickly, on paper, at least, it appears that’s indeed what we’re getting, in addition to reports that the RTX 3090 will be 50% faster than the RTX 2080 Ti

The main specs of the RTX 3090 are:
- Nvidia GeForce RTX CUDA cores: 5248
- Memory: 24 GB GDDR6X
- PCIe interface: 4.0
This is a huge leap over the RTX 2080 Ti, and that 24 GB of memory could put it in RTX Titan terrority. Nvidia’s Titan GPUs, which although based upon the exact same tech as Nvidia’s video gaming GPUs, are in truth focused on content creators and include high cost which are reasonably budget-friendly compared to expert GPUs.
That quantity of power requires … a lot of power, and reports recommend that the GPU will be huge, and will require an adaptor to plug into the PSU.
We likewise understand producers like Asus and Zotac will make their own versions of the RTX 3090, which could include somewhat various (though still very powerful) specifications.
