Based on the Ampere architecture and designed to handle the graphical demands of 8K gaming and high frame rates, the ASUS GeForce RTX 3090 Republic of Gamers Strix Gaming OC Graphics Card brings the power of real-time ray tracing and AI to your PC games. The GPU features 24GB of GDDR6X VRAM and a 384-bit memory interface, offering improved performance and power efficiency over the previous Turing-based generation. The front panel of the card features a variety of outputs, such as DisplayPort 1.4a and HDMI 2.1. HDMI 2.1 supports up to 48 Gb/s bandwidth and a range of higher resolutions and refresh rates, including 8K 60fps, 4K 120fps, and even up to 10K. The RTX 3090 is not just about high-resolution gaming. Computationally intensive programs can utilize the GPU's 10496 cores to accelerate tasks using CUDA and other APIs. For cooling, ASUS implemented triple Axial-tech fans, providing improved airflow and dispersion. There is also Aura Sync RGB lighting on the shroud and backplate. Using Aura Sync software, you can sync the RGB lights with other ASUS products for a customized gaming setup. With Aura Sync, you can sync to music, temperature-based color changing, or select from a variety of patterns and static options. NVIDIA Ampere Architecture NVIDIA Ampere is the 2nd generation RTX architecture. It features up to twice the FP32 throughput, 2nd Gen RT Core throughput, and 3rd Gen Tensor Core throughput of the previous generation. It also features a Samsung 8N custom process and utilizes GDDR6X VRAM. Real-Time Ray Tracing The NVIDIA GeForce RTX platform enables real-time ray tracing of objects and environments with physically accurate shadows, reflections, refractions, and global illumination. DLSS NVIDIA DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) is AI rendering that boosts frame rates while still providing optimal image quality using the dedicated AI processing Tensor Cores on the GeForce RTX platform. This gives you the performance you need to maximize ray tracing settings and resolutions for an immersive visual experience. HDMI 2.1 The HDMI 2.1 interface provides increased bandwidth, allowing a single cable to output to 8K HDR TVs for ultra-high-resolution gaming.
