Zotac RTX 3090 Ti AMP Extreme Holo GPU Review

Zotac RTX 3090 Ti AMP Extreme Holo GPU Review

By now you have all heard of the recent launch of Nvidia's RTX 3090 Ti or is it Tie? Whatever. Zotac was kind enough to send over their flagship model, the RTX 3090 Ti AMP Extreme Holo, so many thanks to them. This time around Nvidia has enabled all 84 SMs on the Ampere GA102 process, which translates to 10,752 CUDA cores, 336 Tensor cores, 336 TMUs, and 112 ROPs. The now little brother, the RTX 3090, has 82 of those SMs enabled, translating to 10,496 CUDA cores, however both models have the same amount of VRAM, 24GB of GDDR6X, BUT the RTX 3090 Ti ups the boost clock to 1.86GHz and memory clocks to 21Gbps over the 1.7GHz boost and 19.5 Gbps found on the RTX 3090. So just by looking at the numbers, the RTX 3090 Ti should only be around 2.4% faster on the core and 7.7% faster on the memory clocks than the RTX 3090, however the RTX 3090 Ti has a whopping 450w power consumption rating! So why was this card made? Well I think it's a case of, because Nvidia can and will continue to innovate. Looking at the raw specs alone, it doesn't really look like much of improvement, but to some the upgrade to an RTX 3090 Ti might be worth it. Read on to find out more.
