ASUS GEFORCE RTX 3090 TUF GAMING
Based on the Ampere architecture and designed to handle the graphical demands of 8K gaming and high frame rates, the ASUS TUF GAMING GeForce RTX 3090 OC Graphics Card brings the power of real-time ray tracing and AI to your PC games. The GPU features 24GB of GDDR6X VRAM and a 384-bit memory interface, offering improved performance and power efficiency over the previous Turing-based generation.
The front panel of the card features a variety of outputs, such as DisplayPort 1.4a and HDMI 2.1. HDMI 2.1 supports up to 48 Gb/s bandwidth and a range of higher resolutions and refresh rates, including 8K @ 60fps, 4K @ 120fps, and even up to 10K. The RTX 3090 is not just about high-resolution gaming. Computationally intensive programs can utilize the GPU’s 10496 cores to accelerate tasks using CUDA and other APIs.
For cooling, ASUS implemented triple Axial-tech fans. The Axial fans have been smartly tuned with a reversed rotation for the center fan, which reduces turbulence. The fans can also be set up to stop when the GPU temperature fall below 55 degrees. The heatsink array features extra flatness for better contact with the die for improved thermal transfer. There is also RGB lighting on the shroud. Using Armoury Crate software, you can sync the RGB lights with other ASUS products for a customized gaming setup.
A MaxContact heat spreader efficiently transfers heat into a new 2.7-slot heatsink. On top, three Axial-tech fans work in tandem to drive air through the entire array, helping to keep temperature under tight control.
A new all-aluminum shroud adds a robust flair to TUF builds and is accompanied by a metal backplate, helping reduce PCB flex and keep sensitive components safe. .
Dual-ball fan bearings that stand up to tough conditions more readily than other bearing types and top-shelf capacitors that pass military-grade certification team up to boost product longevity. These components are soldered to the PCB using an Auto-Extreme automated manufacturing process, ensuring accurate placement and a perfect joint every time.
Hardware and software come together to let gamers fully customize and control their gaming experience. GPU Tweak II enables tweaks and monitoring, XSplit offers a robust streaming solution, and wtfast can improve routing to game servers for a more stable gaming connection.
Memory manufacturer Micron is debuting its new GDDR6X memory on the ASUS GEFORCE RTX 3090 TUF GAMING and GeForce RTX 3080. GDDR6X uses innovative PAM4 signal transmission technology to once again double the data rate per clock, delivering unprecedented graphics memory performance to feed the most data-hungry workloads, such as gaming, professional visualisation, and AI inference.
