Rumored specs for the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 SUPER, which sources now claim is a Ti model, have surfaced. It was previously speculated that NVIDIA was waiting on Micron for 2 GB GDDR6X modules, and that appears to be the case. The 2 GB modules are reported to operate at 21 Gbps with a theoretical bandwidth of 1 TB/s. The upgrade will require a redesigned reference board to replace the existing 1 GB modules. Another recent rumor is that it will feature a full GA-102 GPU with 10,752 CUDA cores and increased TDP.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti could feature a new 16-pin PCIe 5.0 type connector as well. The increased TDP is expected to be around 450 watts.

Whether the card will be branded SUPER or Ti remains in doubt. NVIDIA did offer both a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and 2080 SUPER last time around, so anything is still possible. The card will supposed launch in January 2022.

Obviously, the fact that the card supposedly features a new power connector, made us curious if this card is using a PCIe Gen5 interface. Unfortunately, this has not yet been confirmed, but we don’t see the point of a new power connector unless the whole card is Gen5 compatible.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
