The new GPU is up to 10% faster than its predecessor, the RTX 3090.
CriptoNoticias chatted with a miner about what to expect from this video card.
The new video card from the American technology company Nvidia, the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, was finally launched on the market. After several months of delay, the hardware began to be marketed this Tuesday, March 29, as announced a few days ago.
As it turned out, the new video card is very similar to its predecessor, the GeForce RTX 3090, in terms of design. In terms of performance, the 3090 Ti is up to 10% faster, making it the most powerful on the market, so far.
In details, the GPU has a consumption of 450 W, based on the Ampere architecture. It has 3 slots and is the same size as the RTX 3090. In addition, it has 24 GB GDDR6 memory, for a speed of 21 Gbps, and a GA102-350 chip, as reported in CriptoNoticias a few days ago.
According to Technical specifications Of the hardware, published on the Nvidia website, this GPU will be the first to have a 16-pin PCIe Gen5 power connector, which will replace the one already seen in other versions.
About the prices, the sales section Nvidia lets it be known that the new hardware retails for around 2,249 euros, or about $2,500.
A card suitable for cryptocurrency mining
This video card will have defined audiences, such as the gamer and audiovisual producers, for example, who are part of the common users of this hardware. However, cryptocurrency miners will also appear, that GPUs use to mine money from Ethereum, ZCash, Ravencoin and Monero chainsto mention a few.
The latter will take 100% advantage of this product because, like its previous version, it does not include the mining limitation that Nvidia imposed on several of its GPUs in the past.
In fact, and according to NiceHash, the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti could have a hashrate of up to 135 MH/s without the LHR limiter. The predecessor, which was outlined as one of the most powerful at the timehas a hash rate of 120 MH/sas detailed in CriptoNoticias.
Nvidia’s decision not to limit the hashing power of the 3090 and now 3090 Ti GPUs stemmed from the drivers and bypass that bypassed the restriction on the boards where the Lite Hash Rate (LHR) was imposed. This, in addition to the price of the product, which could hinder the massive acquisition by average users.
The profitability of the 3090 Ti will depend on its price
To find out more about what this video card can offer miners, CriptoNoticias spoke with Abiezer Ventura. He mines altcoins and makes use of GPUs to process transactions on the various networks he works with.
What are the most profitable cryptocurrencies to mine with GPU?
Ventura explains that the profitability of this new GPU will depend, to a certain extent, on the final price it has at the time it is sold on the market, although it does predict interesting gains.
According to the miner, about USD 120 per month could be generated with a single RTX 3090 Ti GPU mining Ethereum, an activity that could last, since using graphics cards is not complicated, especially if they are operating in decent environments, as he called them.
“I do think it will be a good GPU, especially for those who can afford one. And it will also be because it is understood that the 3090 Ti, like its younger sister, the 3090, does not have a limitation for cryptocurrency mining.

About the competition of this Nvidia GPU and other similar ones, from other brands, such as AMD; He was blunt in stating that the other companies still “have work to do” to catch up with the American manufacturer.
At CriptoNoticias we will be aware and provide details when Nvidia’s RTX 3090 Ti GPU begins to be used to mine cryptocurrencies.
