NVIDIA RTX 3090 Specifications
The specifications for the NVIDIA RTX 3090 uses 24GB GDDR6X memory and 350W of power. Here is the high-level spec of the card compared to two GPUs from the previous generation, the Titan RTX and the Quadro RTX 8000.
The reason we are showing this higher-level spec comparison is that in our performance charts, the GeForce RTX 3090 is going to usually perform between the two options. I am currently working on a Quadro RTX 6000 review, so we will have comparisons from that angle soon.
Testing the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090
Here is our test configuration:
- Motherboard: ASUS ROG Zenith II Extreme Motherboard
- CPU: AMD Threadripper 3960X (24 cores / 48 Threads)
- GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090
- Cooling: NZXT Kraken X62
- RAM: 4x Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB 3600 MHz 16GB (64GB Total)
- SSD: Sabrent Rocket 4.0 NVMe PCIe Gen4 x4 M.2 SSD
- PSU: EVGA Supernova 1600 T2
- OS: Windows 10 Pro
For the photos above, we had this GPU inside a Pelican 1485 case with foam we customized for the GeForce RTX 3090. That case, along with the studio blue backlighting is not included with the card (but maybe it should be a premium packaging bundle?)
Here is the obligatory GPU-Z shot of the NVIDIA RTX 3090 FE:
GPU-Z shows the primary stats of our testing the RTX 3090 FE. The GPU clocks in at 1395 MHz and can boost up to 1695 MHz. Pixel Fillrates run at 189.8 GPixels/s, and Texture Fillrate comes in at 556 GTexel/s, while memory runs at 1219 MHz. Again, we see 24GB of GDDR6X memory on the RTX 3090 FE.
Let us move on and start our testing with computing-related benchmarks.
