TUF Gaming GeForce RTX™ 3090 buffed-up design with chart-topping thermal performance. NVIDIA Ampere Streaming Multiprocessors: The building blocks for the world's fastest, most efficient GPU, the all-new Ampere SM brings 2X the FP32 throughput and improved power efficiency. 2nd Generation RT Cores: Experience 2X the throughput of 1st gen RT Cores, plus concurrent RT and shading for a whole new level of ray tracing performance. 3rd Generation Tensor Cores: Get up to 2X the throughput with structural sparsity and advanced AI algorithms such as DLSS. Now with support for up to 8K resolution, these cores deliver a massive boost in game performance and all-new AI capabilities. Axial-tech Fan Design has been newly tuned with a reversed central fan direction for less turbulence. Dual Ball Fan Bearings can last up to twice as long as sleeve bearing designs. Military-grade Capacitors and other TUF components enhance durability and performance. GPU Tweak II provides intuitive performance tweaking, thermal controls, and system monitoring. TUF Gaming GeForce RTX™ 3090 BUILT TUF The TUF Gaming GeForce RTX™ 3090 has been stripped down and built back up to provide more robust power and cooling. A new all-metal shroud houses three powerful axial-tech fans that utilize durable dual ball fan bearings. Fan rotation has been optimized for reduced turbulence, and a stop mode brings all three fans to a halt at low temps. Beneath, independent heatsinks for the GPU and memory keep thermals under tight control. Additional features, including TUF components, Auto-Extreme Technology, a new GPU bracket, and a backplate vent make the TUF a proper powerhouse. For builders looking for a new "old faithful", this card has your back. FANSAXIAL-TECH UPGRADES TUF Gaming cards leverage our tried-and-true Axial-tech fan design, with three fans working in tandem to satisfy the thermal demands of NVIDIA's new high-octane design. The fans rely on dual ball fan bearings to ensure consistent performance and increased longevity compared to sleeve bearings and other bearing types.
