A few days after the official debut of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 and the related custom variants of the partners, the wait for the first independent reviews (and tests) of the GeForce RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 is very high, certainly thanks to the performance declared by NVIDIA that , unless denied, are nothing short of impressive.
Analyzing the characteristics of the new GeForce RTX 30, many have also wondered if the GPU frequencies of the custom versions will be as conservative as the Founders Edition; a consideration that may seem trivial but that we also made on the RTX 3090 for example, if only for the high number of Cuda Cores with which this chip is equipped (in this case the Ampere GA102-300 GPU from 10496 Cuda Core) .
To dispel any (or almost) doubt on the issue comes EVGA which, in a video presentation of the GeForce RTX 3090 FTW3 model, reveals how this version of the RTX 3090 can operate at 2.1 GHz without particular problems. In the video, published on the official channel of the manufacturer, a screenshot of the new card appears, which is overclocked at 2.1 GHz via the EVGA Precision X1 utility, all without affecting the voltage.
Considering that the GeForce RTX 3090 Founders Edition offers a computing power of about 36 TFLOPS in FP32 at 1695 MHz, such a marked overclock will certainly allow you to break through the 40TFLOPS threshold; a value until a few years ago unthinkable for a consumer graphics card.
EVGA, as well as other NVIDIA partners, has not communicated the price of the GeForce RTX 3090 FTW3, a product that in Europe will most likely touch 1800 euros (if not higher). Recall that this particular model is equipped with the innovative EVGA iCX3 dissipation system, with triple cooling fan, ARGB lighting system and unified copper block to extract heat from GPU and memory chip.
