GeForce RTX 3090 SUPER coming? 10752 CUDA core and over 400W of TDP

After introducing as many as three Ti models to the GeForce RTX 3000 range, NVIDIA could brush up on the brand as well SUPER coined for the refresh of the previous 2000 series in 2019. According to leaker Greymon55in fact, NVIDIA would be working on one GeForce RTX 3090 SUPER.

At the moment it is not clear whether we will also see other SUPER models in the 3000 range, but this cannot be excluded because in the recent past rumors reported a possible use of the brand from the beginning of 2022 also in the notebook field.

According to what was released by the leaker, the GeForce RTX 3090 SUPER could be based on a GA102 GPU with 10752 CUDA cores active, which is 256 more than the 10496 CUDA cores of the current model. In practice, NVIDIA would unlock the two Streaming Multiprocessor (SM) disabled on the current card, offering the GA102 in all its glory. Accordingly, the card should also offer 336 Tensor cores and 84 RT cores.

The GA102 in this form already used by NVIDIA on the RTX A6000 for the professional sector and the NVIDIA A40 in the server sector. It is not clear if the US company will propose this hypothetical RTX 3090 SUPER with the same amount of memory as the RTX 3090 and at what speed, although there are rumors about the use of GDDR6X at 21 Gbps. In any case, Greymon55 speaks of a TDP higher than 400W, which is over 50W more than the current model (350W).

Regarding the performance there is no information, but the addition of256 CUDA cores shouldn’t make much of a difference. We have also seen, in the past months, how the gaming gap between the RTX 3080 / Ti and the RTX 3090 is really small, so we will see how NVIDIA will advertise the alleged SUPER solution; the RTX 3090 aimed mainly at content creators.

The arrival of a family of SUPER solutions between the end of 2021 and the beginning of 2022 it could represent, rather than a move against AMD, a disruptive maneuver in view of the launch of the Intel Arc proposals planned at that time.

Of course, we still don’t know how Intel’s GPUs will perform, but if NVIDIA can do that, it will certainly overshadow any announcements of its new competitor. Plus, it would be a good way to keep sales and attention high on a series that is literally selling like hot cakes despite skyrocketing prices and low availability relative to market demand.
