ASUS has officially launched its own GeForce RTX 3090 under the TUF Gaming sub brand. Unlike the Founders Edition of the card, ASUS’ card sports some obvious differences in design and features.
For starters, it doesn’t use NVIDIA’s ultra-compact PCB design, but it does still use a custom PCB. Instead of a Dual Axis Flow Through cooler design, this TUF Gaming variant uses a triple-fan cooling solution that is more in line up with the brand’s design aesthetics. It even has a massive heatsink that extends beyond the card’s length.
Beneath the cooler shroud and heatsink, the card uses top-shelf chokes and MOSFETs, as well as military-grade capacitors. Specs-wise, the card is obviously based off NVIDIA’s new 8nm Ampere GPU technology, comes with 24GB GDDR6X graphics memory running at 19.5Gbps, PCIe 4.0 interface support. And a whopping 10495 CUDA cores, which is more than double the amount of the TITAN RTX.
For ports, the TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3090 carries two HDMI 2.1 ports and three DisplayPort 1.4a ports. As for pricing, the card retails for RM7208 and comes with a three plus one warranty from ASUS.
