Interesting, there are already some confirmed VBIOS out there, and the max power limit seems to be 516W from the Strix LC.

I guess you could just flash that VBIOS in the other cards, right? I think all 3090Ti use the PCI-E 5.0 connector

Good point, all of the cards use the same MP86957 controller for the VRM, and all of them use the same power connector as well. So I would assume you could flash any BIOS you wanted, including any XOC ones.

The FTW one in Steve's video had an extra connector on the side, just in case you want another 600 watts pumped into your GPU

So.... who's getting the 3090 Ti? This will be a cool thread to follow :cool:

Interesting, noticed it now on the PCB shots by TPU, the EVGA and Zotac card has an option for a second connector (not installed).
The Kingpin card is confirmed to feature two connectors (installed). Might cause issues with the XOC BIOS then, time will tell.

I grabbed a FTW3 Ultra Gaming while I could, when I really wanted the Suprim X. The Suprim X was listed on Newegg Canada about 10 minutes after my FTW3 shipped out. Sucks.

Whatever, this will be a fun experiment. :)

That's a good point. Very likely will screw that up. EVGA didn't want that bios shared on the 3090, so they may have a fix for that. Galax has 2 also. That only leaves Asus as a possible xoc bios to flash.

Watching this thread with curiosity. From the OC results in reviews, it seems these cards are all hitting 2150-2200MHz which I didn't expect considering slightly more cores and also higher heat levels to manage. TechPowerUp was able to hit 24Gbps on memory OC as well if I remember correctly. In memory bandwidth heavy games like Horizon Zero Dawn, this could result in a 10% performance increase even over an overclocked 3090. For most games I'm expecting 5%. If 4090 weren't right around the corner I'd be tempted. Put in a notify for the Kingpin model just in case.

Pretty sure it only has one 16 pin, but EVGA elected to put it in the front.

Why do these cards have that 16 pin thing? Why didn’t manufacturers put the standard 3x8 pin layout? The 16 pin and the adapter looks super ugly and I can’t understand the point behind it.

One theory is that with one power connector you have more room on the board for other components. This will likely be implemented with 40 series as well.

It's really hard to assess the true increase in performance since the manufacturers play games with the power limit. Looks like 5-10% though depending on the game. Reviews showing 10%+ are mostly comparing to a base 350w card. You would think at least one reviewer might equalize power as part of the review, but I guess it's expecting too much for them to write a review for the enthusiast community.

No power balancing issues other than with the PCIE slot. Also once PSUs have this plug, it will reduce cable clutter. And yes it's really for 40 series.

If anyone has or is getting one of these cards, please post a screenshot of the voltage/frequency curve from Afterburner if you can. I'm curious what the base curve looks like. Take the screenshot with the card cooled down at idle as it shifts with temperatures.

I have lost interest with RTX-30 series after having 3080, 3080 Ti and now 3070 Ti Mobile. Part of reason was lack of games apart from just doing 4K to really enjoy these cards.

An overclocked 3090 FE limited to 520-580W from internal rail limits (shunt mod) already exceeds a stock 3090 Ti :) And my 3090 FE didn't win the VRAM lottery at all (+600 max) but the core can do +150 it seems. There. 3090 Ti with fewer cores!

Anyway these cards are an epic cash grab. Once you pass 450W, the performance/watt skyrockets massively in the watts favor just for increasing nothing but power limit, and heat is hard to control. You only get a real increase if you have a card that can clock the core sky high, e.g. Asus with Elmor device or Kingpin with voltage dip switches enabled/tool.

I wonder what the custom loop people will get on these cards though.

So who here is actually buying a Ti? They went for sale today and were in stock for over 2 hours....yet some people on the ATC discord seem to be picking some up anyway....

I went ahead and purchased one. I initially purchased one online, and went to grab another one at MicroCenter, but the card is way too big for my bottom PCI slot, which only has room for 3 slots, and this exceeded that. So I have to return the online one.

Yeah, I have the slowest score right now, but I haven't applied overclocking yet, and I need the RAM, so I ended up with 4 slots, thus limiting that speed. I.e. I spent way too much on stuff when I could have gotten it for significantly cheaper.

This might depress you then but hopefully its inspiration instead, time to start overclocking... I have 4 sticks too, SR DDR4. Really cheap RAM sticks, they were originally 3000-16 before OC. And a 3080Ti on air.
