Smashing onto the scene with Nvidia’s new Ampere GPU architecture, leaving the competition standing around exposed with an awkward look.
Having the most powerful GPU in the Ampere range brings its monstrous size to match. Big Ferocious GPU (BFGPU) as Nvdia would like to coin the term… Come on Nvida, have some balls. Big fucking balls… and call it what you indended. I promise the woke brigade won’t be offended.
It’s difficult to not discuss the size more. This card makes most GPU’s look like mini ITX’s! It’s as if you need a car shaped/ sized case!….
Using the Octanebench 2020 and Luxmark 3.1 GPU rendering tests the 3090 scores 673 and 18,913 respectively. Comparing this to the 3080 at 565 and 16093. Thats some jaw dropping performance! The biggest difference between the 3090 and the 3080 in the bench tests was in the 3dsmax-07 test- where it gained 25%.
Unfortunately all this insanity comes at a price and thanks to our crypto friends, if you can eventually find one.. it’ll set you back at well over $2000. With that price tag and the law of diminishing returns at play, some may argue that you’re better served looking at the 3080. If however money is no object and the marginal increases in performance is what you’re looking for, we fully support the 3090.
As we said above. If you want the very best for in our opinion, marginal gain (at present) and have the cash to splash with its high cost, then the RTX 3090 card is for you. If you’re looking to slog through media, modelling and rendering then the 3080 is almost as powerful but costs half the price
