Average Bench: 232% (1st of 666)

Based on 79,301 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 marketing strategy, Nvidia will probably lose considerable market share, for all the wrong reasons. [Sep '20 GPUPro]

Upgrading from a 2080 Ti I went from good to insane 4K gaming performance. The 2080 Ti's framerates in 1440p are the same if not worse than those of the 3090 in 4K. The card is very stiff core overclocker, as I can barely squeeze out a 10% OC while the 2080 Ti easily did 15%; the memory OC's like crazy on this card though. —Feb '21

Really good card. Would have bought the 3080ti but it was postponed indefinitely so i went for the 3090 when i saw some in stock. Really good GPU, the 24gb of VRAM is definitely excessive for gaming, this is only a price issue though. And most likely the 3080ti won't be cheap. Superior performance in every way, the only negatives are price and heat production, my pc now works as a radiator when gaming. Upgraded from a 2080 super and the difference is night and day even with that card being very good. This card isn't for value-oriented buyers unless you do some super GPU intensive work, it's for getting maximum performance regardless of price.—Feb '21

This is the kind of gpu that NVIDIA always uses to test the pricing waters... 2080ti... look it sold even at 1200$... ok lets now try... 1500$ and all cards +100$ over average... it sold too ok... RTX 4095 1600$ lets try that price now...

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?

NEW 5-star review... This is the only 3080+ GPU I could find at release last year. I have long since forgotten how much it cost and enjoy its performance and capability. Also, "because I bought one" ;-) OLD 2-star review... Why is this necessary? Oh wait... I forgot all the 8k monitors out there looking for a GPU to drive them.

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.
