General info

1.Thermal Design Power (TDP)


The thermal design power (TDP) is the maximum amount of power the cooling system needs to dissipate. A lower TDP typically means that it consumes less power.
2.number of transistors

28300 million

A higher transistor count generally indicates a newer, more powerful processor.
3.semiconductor size


Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.
4.PCI Express (PCIe) version


Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe) is a high-speed interface standard for connecting components, such as graphics cards and SSDs, to a motherboard. Newer versions can support more bandwidth and deliver better performance.
5.Is dual-GPU
Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090
The graphics card contains two graphics processing units (GPUs). This generally results in better performance than a similar, single-GPU graphics card.
6.Has air-water cooling
Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090
The graphics card uses a combination of water and air to reduce the temperature of the card. This allows it to be overclocked more, increasing performance.


1.GPU clock speed


The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.
2.pixel rate

189.8 GPixel/s

The number of pixels that can be rendered to the screen every second.
3.floating-point performance

35.58 TFLOPS

Floating-point performance is a measurement of the raw processing power of the GPU.
4.texture rate

556 GTexels/s

The number of textured pixels that can be rendered to the screen every second.
5.GPU memory speed


The memory clock speed is one aspect that determines the memory bandwidth.
6.shading units


Shading units (or stream processors) are small processors within the graphics card that are responsible for processing different aspects of the image.


1.effective memory speed


The effective memory clock speed is calculated from the size and data rate of the memory. Higher clock speeds can give increased performance in games and other apps.
2.maximum memory bandwidth


This is the maximum rate that data can be read from or stored into memory.


Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
4.memory bus width


A wider bus width means that it can carry more data per cycle. It is an important factor of memory performance, and therefore the general performance of the graphics card.
5.version of GDDR memory


Newer versions of GDDR memory offer improvements such as higher transfer rates that give increased performance.


1.has an HDMI output
Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090
Devices with a HDMI or mini HDMI port can transfer high definition video and audio to a display.
2.HDMI version


Newer versions of HDMI support higher bandwidth, which allows for higher resolutions and frame rates.
3.DisplayPort outputs


Allows you to connect to a display using DisplayPort.
4.HDMI ports


More HDMI ports mean that you can simultaneously connect numerous devices, such as video game consoles and set-top boxes.
5.DVI outputs


Allows you to connect to a display using DVI.
6.mini DisplayPort outputs


Allows you to connect to a display using mini-DisplayPort.


1.DirectX version


DirectX is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
2.OpenGL version


OpenGL is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
3.OpenCL version


Some apps use OpenCL to apply the power of the graphics processing unit (GPU) for non-graphical computing. Newer versions introduce more functionality and better performance.
4.Supports multi-display technology
Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090
The graphics card supports multi-display technology. This allows you to configure multiple monitors in order to create a more immersive gaming experience, such as having a wider field of view.
5.Supports 3D
Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090
Allows you to view in 3D (if you have a 3D display and glasses).
