After months of rumors and hearsays, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti is finally live and accessible to every baller gamer out there.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti 1

If the assumption of the RTX 3090 Ti to be the final product of the Ampere architecture for the consumer market is true, then offering the best silicon in production to harness the power of RTX is going to be now or never. As the strongest GeForce card to date, it hosts a record-breaking 10,752 CUDA cores capable of delivering 78 RT-TFLOPs, 40 Shader-TFLOPs, and 320 Tensor-TFLOPs while packing the super-fast GDDR6X VRAM at 24GB of capacity. Made for the most ambitious users, anything that requires to churn through large data sets, be it for academic, business or simply gaming, can all take advantage of this beastly GPU to get things done either at the fastest rate or the biggest scale. At this level of performance, of course, it is going to consume a ton of power and that’s why you’ll find the new PCIe Gen 5 16-pin connector on the card with various adaptors and wires being included in new PSUs starting this week.

According to NVIDIA’s benchmark for reference, the RTX 3090 Ti is 42% to 102% faster than the RTX 2080 Ti and TITAN RTX within rendering applications like Blender, Maya, or Cinema4D, and on the other hand, working with 8K RAW projects in DaVinci Resolve featuring REDCODE, Raw (R3D) files can quickly deplete as many VRAM as possible and in such cases, only the RTX 3090 Ti’s massive 24GB memory is capable of following up with all the seemingly “unfair” effects being applied to the project.

While the former RTX 3090 makes 8K HDR gaming a reality thanks to NVIDIA DLSS, the extra performance provided by the RTX 3090 Ti has proven and is expected to do that job better via a more stable overall frame rate. All the features and goodies like AV1 decoding, 8K HDR game capturing, single HDMI 2.1 cable connectivity are all here to stay.

A standard USD1,999 starting price is given to the RTX 3090 Ti so we’ll run you down some of the partner boards announced in tandem with NVIDIA. Additional info such as pricing, availability, and the spec sheet is listed as well if available.



MSI GeForce RTX 3090 Ti

MSI’s first round of the RTX 3090 Ti card will be spearheaded by the SUPRIM, GAMING TRIO, and BLACK TRIO series. The SUPRIM lineup is the better and premium series as it rocks the TRI FROZR 2S air cooling system featuring the TORX FAN 4.0, up to 8 core pipes, airflow control fins, and copper base plate for efficient heat dissipation with the exterior of the cooler brushed with aluminum and the backplate imparting an armor-like aesthetic. Rounding it up is the RGB Mystic Light for the color game and physical Dual BIOS switch to swap between different performance profiles in seconds.

On the other hand, the GAMING TRIO models boasts almost similar features such as the TRI FROZR 2 thermal design, a large copper base plate for cooling the VRAM, and a matte-finish backplate for durability and assistance in removing heat. It also has RGB Mystic Light by the way.

RGB lights are crappy? Then opt for the BLACK TRIO version instead that sticks to its iconic aesthetics and impressive thermal design. Function and feature-wise, it is just the GAMING TRIO without the lighting game.

Here are some key figures to take note of that are subject to changes by vendors themselves.

ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 3090 Ti AMP Extreme Holo

ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 3090 Ti AMP Extreme Holo

ZOTAC is once returning the iconic aurora design to the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti AMP Extreme Holo featuring the robust IceStorm 2.0 cooling system via the triple 100mm 11-blade fans for direct airflow while the 20% increased thickness of the aluminum heatsink fully enfolds the 8 copper pipes to remove all the heat created by the 450W chip. With Dual BIOS featuring Quiet and Amplify profiles, the HoloBlack design is still good as ever by letting the SPECTRA 2.0 RGB lighting path shine through from underneath.



Fancy some dedicated liquid cooling for the GPU? Then the AORUS GeForce RTX 3090 Ti EXTREME WATERFORCE will do just the job because the 360mm aluminum radiator naturally has more surface area and volume for better thermal efficiency while the triple 120mm double ball bearing fans keeps the operation stable and cool even under long periods of high load tasks. As the big copper plate makes direct contact with the GPU die, VRAM, and other critical parts, rest assured the beastly card is tamed properly. Meanwhile, the durable FEP tube has high-pressure tolerance which greatly enhances the AIO lifespan too.

This model will be made available in Malaysia starting in April at the price of RM10,299.



Not a fan of liquid cooling? Then opt for the standard GIGABYTE version of the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti GAMING series card. With the WINDFORCE 3X cooling system packing a combination of triple alternate-spinning fans, vapor chamber, octa copper heat pipes, everything is finely tuned to make sure as much airflow and pressure is pushed through the pipes to effectively cool the GPU, VRAM, and MOSFETs. It also has an onboard Dual BIOS switch to turn around things quickly. With a lot of power required to drive the card, GIGABYTE has deployed multi-phase power supply designs to make sure the MOSFETS doesn’t go overboard in terms of temperature and overall durability.

Both models will be made available in Malaysia starting in April at the price of RM9,699 for the non-OC model and RM9,999 for the OC model.

COLORFUL iGame GeForce RTX 3090 Ti Vulcan / Neptune / NB EX

COLORFUL iGame GeForce RTX 3090 Ti

Also, we have fellow COLORFUL from China offering a total of 3 iGame models for the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti – Vulcan, Neptune, and NB EX. The best one, of course, is the Vulcan that hosts the iGame Display, an LCD display on the side with a resolution of 480 x 128 that allows the user to either show system information or simple images / GIFs for that extra bit of fun. It is also built with durability in mind because of how heavy is it thus the support frame enhances the stability and integrity of the entire unit. To finish everything off, RGB is there to light up your rig to the maximum.

COLORFUL iGame GeForce RTX 3090 Ti Neptune

On the other hand, the Neptune is basically the AIO variant of the lineup that comes within a 240mm form factor for the radiator while the infinity mirror is well placed on top of the GPU die for some sophisticated RGB pattern.

COLORFUL iGame GeForce RTX 3090 Ti NB EX

Lastly, the NB EX model is simple and straightforward via the Black and Red design rocking a 100mm-90mm-100mm triple fan setup to generate stable airflow and pressure.

As other brands have their own release schedule, we’ll be back to update this post when new cards from other partners are out.
