The NVIDIA RTX 3090 is currently the flagship consumer-grade graphics card from NVIDIA. It is based on NVIDIA’s latest Ampere architecture which has significant improvements from the last generation’s Turing architecture. Enhanced and upgraded second-generation RT cores, third-generation Tensor cores, etc. are a few of the improvements. Anyway, RTX 3090 is the perfect choice for those who want the absolute best performance, especially in gaming.
RTX 3090 price in India starts from around 1,40,000 INR. There is a wide variety of RTX 3090 in India. So, which one should you go for? You do not want to spend this much money, and later regret it. So, today, we are going to help you make that decision. We would go over some of the best RTX 3090 cards and talk about all the features that they have. So, let’s begin with the list:
1. Gigabyte Aorus GeForce RTX 3090 XTREME
The Gigabyte Aorus GeForce RTX 3090 XTREME is currently one of the best RTX 3090 that Gigabyte has to offer. The styling of the Gigabyte Aorus GeForce RTX 3090 XTREME is awesome, to begin with. The looks of it are further enhanced by the LCD Edge View. You can set custom, gif, images, icons, etc. and it will appear on it. The RGB lighting on the card can be customized using Fusion 2.0 as well.
The RTX 3090 XTREME uses a metal backplate for the protection of the PCB. The Gigabyte Aorus GeForce RTX 3090 XTREME uses Max-Covered cooling technology. It uses three fans for this, 2x 115mm fans, and 1x 100 fan. These fans spin alternatively and ensure that there is ample airflow towards the heatsink. Furthermore, it even uses angular fins for better heat dissipation. As for clock speeds, the Gigabyte Aorus GeForce RTX 3090 XTREME has a memory clock of 19500 MHz, and a core clock of 1860 MHz, along with the 10496 CUDA cores, and 24GB of GDDR6X memory which is standard on every RTX 3090.
2. Asus EKWB RTX 3090
The Asus EKWB RTX 3090 is the only RTX 3090 that comes with an installed custom EK water block, right out of the box. The custom water block, is without a doubt, the USP of the Asus EKWB RTX 3090. This is a perfect choice if you are planning on installing some custom water cooling for your card. Despite having a custom EKWB, it still has a compact shape, as it fits in a single slot and can fit easily in small form factor builds.
The Asus EKWB RTX 3090 uses Asus Auto-Extreme technology, and also includes a protective metal backplate, custom stainless steel mounting bracket. Durability is not a concern at all. Having a custom EKWB, the cooling performance is just exceptional with this graphics card. The Asus EKWB RTX 3090 is a gorgeous-looking card, the water block has an addressable RGB strip that runs the entire length of the card. This allows you to have customizable ARGB lighting. As for the performance, it is top-notch too. It is an NVIDIA RTX 3090 at the end of the day, performance is not something you need to worry about. You get the 102496 CUDA cores, and 24GB of GDDR6X memory like every 3090, but other than that you get a core clock of 1725 MHz in OC mode, and a memory speed of 19.5 Gbps.
3. MSI RTX 3090 Gaming X Trio
The MSI RTX 3090 Gaming X Trio is a part of MSI’s highly reputed Gaming series of graphics cards. The MSI GeForce RTX 3090 GAMING X TRIO uses the TRI FORZR 2 cooling design. It uses 3x TORX Fan 4.0 which are excellent for creating an excellent level focused air pressure. That coupled with the precision-crafted heat pipes which make maximum contact with the GPU, and runs the entire length of the heatsink, results in an awesome cooling performance. What makes the heat management even better is the Wave-curved 2.0 fins. Furthermore, the GPU comes with an abundance of thermal pads, and the backplate also has additional heat pipes underneath which allows for an even better transfer of heat. All of this ensures that heat is not something that you need to worry about with the card.
There are various RGB elements on the card. All of this can be customized using the MSI Dragon Center. The durability is well taken care of too. The graphics card comes with additional fuses in the PCB which decreases the chances of electrical damage, while also having an anti-bending strap. You also get an additional support bracket which you can use for even better reinforcement. The MSI RTX 3090 Gaming X Trio has a core frequency of 1785 MHz (under Boost), and a memory speed of 19.5 Gbps. The number of CUDA Cores, and memory are the same as other RTX 3090s.
4. Zotac RTX 3090 Trinity
The last card on our list is the Zotac RTX 3090 Trinity. Zotac is a brand that is popular for its 5 years extended warranty. So, if you are someone who wants a long warranty, this is a card that should check out. The Zotac RTX 3090 Trinity uses Zotac IceStorm 2.0 cooling technology for heat management. You get three fans with the 3090 Trinity, and each of these fans comes with 11 blades which help in providing excellent airflow. The card also uses three stacks of aluminum fin-stack array heatskins with seven copper pipes. On top of that, the Zotac RTX 3090 Trinity also has a new, improved heat pipe layout. This helps in providing superb heat dissipation. There is also an option for Active fan control, which lets you decide the speed of each individual fan using the Zotac Gaming FireStorm software.
The card is made to stand the test of time. It uses a metal die-cast backplate and a front plate and thus is plenty durable. The Trinity comes with Spectra 2.0 RGB elements that are present on both the side and the backplate. The RGB effects of these can be customized using the Zotac Gaming FireStorm software. As for the core clock, it is set at 1695 MHz under boost, and the memory speed is 19.5 Gbps. The CUDA core count is the usual 10496, and for the memory, you have 24GB of GDDR6X memory.
