Will the Nvidia RTX 3090 Ti include the Micron GDDR6X
All this talk of the 40 series is heresay, we want the now! Word on the street recently has been an even more powerful RTX 3090 Ti with more CUDA cores with associated juice requirements. In addition it is said that the new card could also feature Micron’s latest and fastest GDDR6X memory, ever more future proofing the 4K/ ray tracing stresses the latest AAA games require.
The RTX 3090 Ti will come with Micron’s MT61K512M32KPA-21U memory on board, a configuration that features 21 Gbps bandwidth. It will also be the firs to use 2GB GDDR6X, reducing the original RTX 3090’s number of chips by half!
Reducing the memory real-estate comes with benefits makes redundant the actively cooled backplate. However this is quite possibly neutralised by rumors of the 450W TDP which will require additional cooling..
The RTX 3090 with no doubt be one of the best graphic cards on the market but with the latest news of Omicron (stay at home higher demand), coupled with supply chain issues and chip shortages, it’d be naive to think you’d pick one up on its supposed launch of January 2022.
