AXGaming, a sub-brand of Innovision Multimedia (Inno3D), has introduced the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti X3W graphics accelerator. The novelty is equipped with a huge cooling system with three fans of 100 mm each. The map is decorated with camouflage colors and RGB lighting.
Usually Accelerator of this class are available with 80 or 90 mm fans or a combination of two 100 mm “turntables” and one 80 mm fan. However, three 100mm propellers appear to be the new norm for the foreseeable future, especially for non-reference variants of the next-gen GeForce RTX 4000 graphics cards.
The AXGaming GeForce RTX 3090 Ti X3W is based on the NVIDIA GA102-350 graphics chip with a base frequency of 1560 MHz. The GPU boost frequency is 1890MHz, which is 30MHz higher than the benchmark announced by NVIDIA. The card has 24GB of GDDR6X memory on board with a speed of 21Gb/s per pin. The energy consumption indicator of the novelty has not changed. It is 450 watts by default. The card is powered via a 12-pin connector.
The AXGaming GeForce RTX 3090 Ti X3W accelerator uses a three-slot design. The graphics card cooling system is so great that the length the reference NVIDIA V board used here with the model number PG136, barely reaches the center of the accelerator. The overall dimensions of the novelty are 330 × 137 × 60 mm.
It is curious that the cooling system of the AXGaming GeForce RTX 3090 Ti X3W is in some aspects similar to the cooler of the reference version of the future GeForce RTX 4090 Ti, photos of which leaked to the Internet yesterday. The base with a vapor chamber for cooling the CPU and memory chips of the GeForce RTX 4090 Ti almost completely repeats the design of the AXGaming model. The cooler seriously differentiates both cooling systems. At AXGaming, it’s also very large, but typically, with a plastic body. And on the GeForce RTX 4090 Ti reference version, the cooler itself plays the role of the case, just like the older Ampere reference models. Another highlight of the new generation reference cooling system is the unusual configuration of two fans located on both sides of the graphics card.
Coming back to the AXGaming GeForce RTX 3090 Ti X3W, we note that the accelerator is not yet commercially available. Information about its cost and availability is not yet known.
