The latest version of Zotac overclocking software, FireStorm, seems to have entries for the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, a GPU that so far has not appeared in any leaks or rumors. The image files in question can be found next to the names of two GPUs that we expect to be released in early June, namely the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and the RTX 3070 Ti.
Given the lack of talk about the RTX 3090 Ti, this is not a card we hope to see soon. And, in fact, it may just be a mistake by Zotac, and no such GPU is planned, but that hasn't stopped us from wondering what this GPU could offer gamers.
Could it be a fully unlocked GA102 chip? This means that it has 84 SMX clusters, which is equivalent to 10,752 CUDA cores and 336 tensor and texture cores. For reference, the current GeForce RTX 3090 has 82 SMX clusters and 10,496 CUDA cores.
Even with the core completely unlocked, this GPU probably wouldn't offer much real improvement over the existing RTX 3090. And is that it is a GPU that does not make much sense for games as it is, even in the maximum-final. So, of course, the RTX 3090 Ti doesn't make much sense, although in these days of GPU shortage, the sense is rarely noticed.
You can find the references yourself by downloading Zotac FireStorm and then taking a look at the Resources folder for overclocking software. There is Led_E_3090Ti along with Led_E_Fan90Ti and Led_E_Fan90TI_H, each of which are image tags from the unreleased card. There are no details to add what the GPU can be.
Nvidia just did it announced that it will release LHR (Light Hash Rate) versions of its GPUs, so it could be a new version of the existing card, mostly because the high-end card is not mentioned in this announcement.
