Palit's GeForce RTX 3090 Ti features 24 Gigabytes of GDDR6X memory and runs at 21 Gbps (effective datarate), which is a lot of volume and bandwidth. On the next pages, we'll go through the specifications in further depth. Three DisplayPort 1.4 and one HDMI 2.1 ports are seen on the IO panel, bringing 8K 60 Hz HDR to a single HDMI cable. The card contains three fans and uses the new 16-pin power connector design. The other side displays a backplate that is actively employed for cooling, aesthetics and protection. It's probably the shiniest and bling graphics card you've seen in ages. But it certainly holds ground and is an interesting performer.
The standard RTX 3060 Ti, 3070, 3080, 3080 Ti, and 3090 GPUs all get HDMI 2.1 ports as well as the most recent DisplayPort generation. The new 16-pin power connecter header is also integrated (converter cable included that feeds from three 8-pin connectors).
The IO panel is used as an air vent and shows four display connectors, three DisplayPort 1.4, and one HDMI 2.1 connector that will bring 8K 60 Hz HDR to a single HDMI cable. No more USB type-C VirtualLink connector, as that one is going the way of the dodo. The backplate is made out of aluminum and helps a notch with cooling, aesthetics, and protection.
Underneath the card is a stylish-looking shroud with a beefy cooler. Don't be alarmed by all the bling; on the following page, we'll show you some photographs of what it's all about.
As indicated on the front IO panel, you'll find 3x DP and 1x HDMI, as well as an RGB connection on the top side.
The backplate for the RTX 3090 Ti GameRock GPU has a lot going on. The well-ventilated space towards the back of the card is what makes me the most delighted. This unusual design will allow more heat to escape through the card and not become trapped on the backplate. While some may say that it doesn't look as great as if the backplate was completely removed, it does help to cool the GPU. Apart from that, we have a fantastic graphical picture with the GameRock logo spanning the majority of the backplate. I'm not sure how I feel about the pair of stickers and FCC information put on the backplate. While I understand that most of this is required by law, most other GPU manufacturers find a method to achieve it without placing it on the backplate itself.
