Nvidia has revealed its latest GeForce RTX 3000 series cards and they are going to start shipping from September 17. The RTX 3080 will hit store shelves on September 17, the RTX 3090 on September 24 and the RTX 3070 will be available in October. All these cards pack some serious performance gains which means that there is a whole bunch of people waiting to get their hands on them. And as usual, they might be faced with the question: Should they spring for the Nvidia-made Founder’s Edition or wait for the numerous third-party options by vendors like Asus, MSI, Zotac, Gigabyte and many others.
And why would you go for boards by a third-party vendor? Well, maybe you don’t like the design of the Nvidia cards, maybe you want some RGB on your GPU, maybe you want better cooling or maybe you want a more compact design. Every third-party vendor puts their own twist and you are sure to find one matching your requirements.
And the Zotac Gaming GeForce RTX 3090 Trinity has been spotted on Amazon. Some of its key features are: –
– 2nd Gen Ray Tracing Cores
– 3rd Gen Tensor Cores
– SPECTRA 2.0 RGB Lighting
– IceStorm 2.0 Advanced Cooling
– Active Fan Control with FREEZE Fan Stop
– Metal Frontplate and RGB LED Backplate
– FireStorm Utility
– NVIDIA NVLink (SLI-ready), VR Ready
The 3090 Trinity has a metal die-cast backplate outfitted with ARGB LED lighting. It has an improved cooling system with 11-blade fans which increase airflow by up to 10%. While all these features are exciting, you should hold on until you hear how much it costs. It was recently spotted on Amazon with an eye-watering price tag of USD 2,415. In comparison, the Founder’s Edition of RTX 3090 will retail for USD 1,499.
The Amazon listing has since been taken down but some people did manage to get screenshots.
