Average Bench: 232% (1st of 652)

Based on 24,875 user benchmarks.  Device: 10DE 2204 Model: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090

The RTX 3090 is Nvidia’s 3000 series flagship. It takes the crown as the fastest consumer graphics card money can buy. Nvidia’s new Ampere architecture, which supersedes Turing, offers both improved power efficiency and performance. The 3090 features 10,496 CUDA cores and 328 Tensor cores, it has a base clock of 1.4 GHz boosting to 1.7 GHz, 24 GB of memory and a power draw of 350 W. The 3090 offers more than double the memory and beats the previous generation’s flagship RTX 2080 Ti significantly in terms of effective speed. That said, the 3090 also comes with a hefty $1,500 price tag. Professional users, such as game developers, that can make use of 24 GB of memory, may find value in the 3090. Regular users should be wary of the hype around 8k gaming. High end gamers ought to consider the 3080 which offers comparable gaming performance for less than half the money. In terms of real world performance, Nvidia’s 3000 series has more or less put AMD’s Radeon group in checkmate. Nonetheless, AMD’s marketers are capable of delivering elaborate BS albeit whilst struggling to keep a straight face. Their marketing infrastructure outsold Intel in the CPU market despite a 15% performance deficit. Without an appropriate social media strategy, Nvidia may still lose considerable market share, for all the wrong reasons. [Sep '20 GPUPro]

Definitely powerful (that 1,000+ FPS Parallax tho) but not sure if i'd personally justify getting over the 3080 because it's 80-90% more expensive for 30% more performance.

"Make it, and there will be people who buy it." This seems like Nvidia's ideology when it comes to the RTX 3090. The RTX 3090 offers 24GB of VRAM and over 10,000 CUDA cores, albeit at more than double the price of the RTX 3080. The RTX 3090 tends to be a workstation-gaming GPU, like the RTX Titan and the Radeon VII. Some users will be able to take advantage of the 24GB GDDR6X VRAM, especially for VRAM-heavy rendering and editing tasks. However, gamers will find only slight improvement in terms of gaming FPS between the RTX 3080 and 3090. If you are looking to primarily game with the RTX 3090, then maybe you should consider buying an RTX 3080 or an upcoming RNDA2 Big Navi GPU.

Unreasonably expensive, but I can comfortably run anything on maximum settings on a 1440p Ultrawide with over 100 FPS

Just wait for the Radeon Rx 6900 XT, supposed to offer similar performance but for over $500 cheaper

If money is a consideration then why comment? I bought the card not for the value purley because I wanted it not to influence others opinions. Why buy a Aston Martin when its a car like a Skoda? Great card glad I managed to get one does all I wanted it for NVIDIA FE version.At no point did I considered AMD no DLSS is the issue for me as my old card played every old gen game but will struggle with future games at high FPS. 3080 TI will suit probably everyone at a big discount on this but I for one still would always have bought this. For people who will laugh and say teaches them for buying a way overpriced 3090 its not overpriced if I consider buying it :) Even if it dropped $200 still meaningless at point of sale I was happy end of. IMO if you have the money buy it assuming you can in this pathetic climate.

Incredible card. To the person with an i7-10700K and a 3090 who keeps running UB over and over again with XMP not enabled and Windows installed on their HDD instead of their SSD though, just, how? How do you have a 3090 while simultaneously being the kind of person to make both of those ultra-amateur mistakes at the same time?

This is a really powerful GPU. Nvidia meant it when they named it the BFGPU. Just like the BFG in Doom Eternal, this card obliterates any game you put in front of it. The Raytracing is absolutely stunning and I can play any game on ultra settings without worry.

This generations 2080ti is a 3090. It also happens to be this generations titan card. Its 100% a premium card just how like last gens 2080ti was a premium card. The price to performance ratio of both of them compared to there own respect 2080/3080 cards is terrible, but it is BiS this generation.
