The oft-rumored however unreleased Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 Tremendous seems to have been revealed in all its black-shrouded glory, due to a vendor on a second-hand market in China.
The Nvidia RTX 3090 Tremendous, which (as VideoCardz factors out) we now have seen beforehand in some on-line leaks, has by no means been formally confirmed by Nvidia, however there was loads of hypothesis and rumors swirling the refreshed releases of Nvidia Ampere-series GPU fashions.

The Nvidia RTX 3090, which continues to be one of many greatest graphics playing cards available on the market greater than two years after its launch, was one of the wanted GPUs of the complete Ampere era, so virtually instantly after it is launch, there was widespread hypothesis about its mid-generation refresh.
Nvidia in the end opted for the Ti variants and the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 Ti was launched in early 2022, although TechRadar computing editor Jackie Thomas was none-too-impressed by the marginally extra highly effective however considerably costlier card in hew evaluation.
The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 Tremendous seemingly would not have fared any higher, provided that the GPU within the Tremendous variant would have been similar to what was in the end launched beneath the RTX 3090 Ti branding. Nevertheless, the all-black shroud with black-painted X-trim across the Founders Version card would a minimum of have made the RTX 3090 Tremendous a extra attention-grabbing card to take a look at.
What may have been…
The distinction between the Nvidia RTX Ti and RTX Tremendous graphics playing cards would have solely actually been a problem of branding and, apparently, materials design, so within the grand scheme of issues nothing would have modified by way of pricing or efficiency.
However I gotta say, I just like the reduce of the RTX 3090 Tremendous’s jib.
To be clear, this solely would have been related for the Founders Editions of the assorted RTX 3000-series releases (and perhaps even the Nvidia RTX 4000-series), nevertheless it undoubtedly would have made the Founders Version GPUs extra in demand and far cooler to personal, assuming you would have discovered one again in the course of the cryptobubble.
As for whether or not we’ll ever see a return of the Tremendous branding to the Nvidia RTX line of GPUs, I do not assume that is seemingly. Seeing as gross sales of current GPUs are down as it’s, releasing one more variant of a GPU that is probably not bought in sufficient amount to justify the hassle would not make a lot sense.
By no means say by no means, although, and it is all the time attention-grabbing to consider what may need been in a distinct timeline.
