The GeForce RTX 3090 Ti rumor mill has been spinning for months, with everything from specs to price to availability. But now we could get a clearer view of graphics cards, thanks to a new leaked image from ITHome.
A first look at the packaging for the RTX 3090 Ti has been revealed, showing that this particular card was supposedly made by ASUS and represents the TUF Gaming series. Judging from the image of the graphics card on the cover, we can deduce several things.
First, the cooler is thicker on the 3090 Ti compared to the 350W RTX 3090 TUF, possibly confirming the rumor that this version will have 450W TDP, almost 100W more than the current model. There is also a number “4” near the PCIe Gen 4.0 information on the box, which can confirm the 24GB setting. Finally, it appears that the 3090 Ti will not be the first PCIe Gen 5.0 card, which goes against current rumors.
Analysis: what we know so far
Until now, there has been a constant stream of rumors about the RTX 3090 Ti. One of the most widespread is Nvidia, possibly unveiling the GPU during CES 2022, along with the cheaper RTX 3050 and a revamped RTX 3070 Ti with more VRAM (16GB). It also appears that based on the vine, the 3090 Ti will be the only one that will not lag.
It is also rumored to have a GA102 GPU with 10,752 CUDA cores (compared to 10,496 cores in the 3090), and it will feature a new board design with a different memory layout, and those 2GB modules, also with a new connector. that is most likely the PCIe Gen 5.0 card.
Of course, Nvidia has not confirmed any of these rumors (including the leaked packaging). So be sure to take it lightly until it is revealed by any official.
