Nvidia’s flagship Geforce graphics card is something of a monster, but the rumour mill tells tales of an even more powerful RTX 3090 Ti with more CUDA cores and glutenous power requirements. Yet, it looks like this GPU could boast more than just performance brawn, as the new card could also feature Micron’s fastest GDDR6X memory.
According to Uniko’s Hardware, the RTX 3090 Ti will come with Micron’s MT61K512M32KPA-21U memory on board, a configuration that features 21Gbps bandwidth. The GPU will also be the first to use 2GB GDDR6X modules, reducing the original RTX 3090’s number of chips by half.
Simplifying the original Nvidia card’s memory configuration naturally comes with benefits, as it negates the need for an actively cooled backplate. That said, the RTX 3090 Ti’s new power connector and rumoured 450W TDP could make additional cooling solutions a must, especially since it’s consuming even more power than the green team’s current frontrunner.
