All signs in heaven and earth indicate the upcoming release of the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti. If you are interested in the top “green” offer, you better get ready for a huge expense – the first pre-sale offers for the new card have appeared on the web.

The GeForce RTX 3090 Ti card was announced at CES 2022, but recent leaks indicate that the premiere has been postponed (according to unofficial information, there should be problems with the proprietary versions of the accelerator).

The new card is to take the position of the top graphics card for desktop computers, but we do not expect a large increase in performance compared to the GeForce RTX 3090 model (i.e. the current leader).

Changes? The manufacturer will use a more powerful graphics system and faster video memory. An additional advantage is to be a higher power limit, which should allow the wings of the new design to spread (and at the same time will increase the demand for electricity).

MSI is preparing a packaged version of GeForce RTX 3090 Ti

During the Nvidia conference, the reference version of the accelerator (Founders Edition) was presented. We know, however, that producers are also preparing their own proprietary designs.

One of them is to be the MSI GeForce RTX 3090 Ti Suprim X, which is to be one of the top versions of this model. The card has already been overclocked to 1880 MHz at the factory, but in the MSI Center application, you can activate the Extreme mode increasing the clock speed to 1900 MHz.

The manufacturer used the powerful Tri Frozr 2S cooling (it is probably the same cooler as in the regular MSI GeForce RTX 3090 Suprim X model). An additional advantage is the power limit increased to 480 W (the card requires connecting three 8-pin power plugs, and the manufacturer recommends using a power supply of at least 1000 W).

You want to buy GeForce RTX 3090 Ti? Get ready for a huge expense

Details on the availability of the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti have yet to be disclosed. It is no secret, however, that the new model will be expensive – now the prices of GeForce RTX 3090 cards oscillate around 3500 to 4000 dollars.

Several European stores have already published pre-sale offers for the MSI GeForce RTX 3090 Ti Gaming X Trio models at around $ 3,500 and the MSI GeForce RTX 3090 Ti Suprim X at around $ 3,600.

How will it be in practice? We will probably find out after the premiere, when the cards reach the stores unless they are bought by miners mining cryptocurrencies.
