NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3090 is one of the first consumer graphics card based on the Ampere architecture, which in turn is the second generation of NVIDIA GPUs to offer hardware raytracing and other advanced features under their RTX branding. The performance increase this video card brings varies greatly depending on workflow, with the biggest improvements coming in areas like 3D rendering, video editing, and game engines. Compared to the previous 20 Series models, the RTX 3090 can be more than twice as fast in some applications - but not every program or game will see that much gain. In contrast, compared to the less expensive RTX 3080, most users would gain a 10-20% boost - along with 140% more VRAM, which can make a much bigger difference in many real-world situations.

This variant from MSI uses a multi-fan cooling layout. It great for keeping a single card running cool and quiet, but results in most of the heat the card generates being pumped back into the computer. That makes these a poor choice for use in multi-GPU systems. In those cases, a video card with a blower-style fan and rear heat exhaust would be much better.

Finally, in regards to connectivity, there are one HDMI 2.1 and three DisplayPort 1.4a plugs supporting a total of up to four displays at a maximum resolution of 7680x4320 (8K).
