NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti uses Micron’s new GDDR6X module
There have been reports recently that NVIDIA will launch the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti in January next year, together with the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 16GB version and the GeForce RTX 3080 12GB version. These are models with large-capacity video memory. The approximate release time will be in January next year, but the specific time to market is uncertain.
GeForce RTX 3090 Ti will use GA102-350 cores, with complete specifications, that is, 10752 stream processors, equipped with 24GB of GDDR6X video memory, with a speed of 21 Gbps and a 384-bit video memory bandwidth, the theoretical video memory bandwidth exceeds 1 TB/s. This will be the first time that GeForce graphics cards have crossed the 1 TB/s bandwidth in history. However, it is worth noting that the TDP of the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti is as high as 450W, which is 100W higher than the current GeForce RTX 3090.
According to Twitter user @unikoshardware, GeForce RTX 3090 Ti will use Micron’s GDDR6X module, and the new 2GB module will replace the existing 1GB module. Its product code is “MT61K512M32KPA-21U”. There does not seem to be much doubt about the previous 21 Gbps rate controversy, which means that GeForce RTX 3090 Ti will have a new PCB design.
The new 2GB module allows the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti to be equipped with a limit of 12 video memory particles, which can simplify the design of the graphics card and reduce the heat dissipation requirements on the back of the graphics card. The GeForce RTX 3090 has a relatively large heat output on the back of the graphics card, which puts forward higher requirements on the overall heat dissipation design of the graphics card. Many users are also troubled by this. The 2GB module can reduce the heat generation on the back of the graphics card.
In addition, it is rumored that the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 16GB version will also use this new version of GDDR6X memory to increase the memory capacity. There is also news that the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti will be released after the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 16GB version and the GeForce RTX 3080 12GB version, and not necessarily in January next year.
