The first (and so far the only) GeForce RTX 30 series graphics card with a cooling system, in which the air is blown outward by a centrifugal fan, which is incorrectly called a “turbine”, appeared in the Gigabyte catalog. The card is based on the GeForce RTX 3090 GPU and is catalog number GV-N3090TURBO-24GD. It is characterized by TDP 350W.
The difference from the reference sample is not only the cooling system. Gigabyte experts also changed the set of video outputs: on the mounting plate there are two DisplayPort 1.4a and HDMI 2.1 connectors, whereas most of these cards have only one HDMI port.
The two eight-pin power connectors are arranged vertically, but this can be achieved not by changing the PCB, but by mounting them using extension cables.
Interestingly, the frequency of the GPU with 10496 cores of CUDA is not specified in the specifications. Perhaps the manufacturer is hoping to increase it from the recommended one. The effective GDDR6X memory frequency is 19500 MHz. The memory size is 24 GB and it is connected to the processor by a 384-bit bus. The card supports configurations with two GPUs connected via NVLink. Its dimensions are 266.7 x 111.16 x 39.8 mm.
The manufacturer does not name the price of the novelty.
