ROG Strix LC GeForce RTX 3090 Ti and TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3090 Ti GPUs are available in Standard and OC versions, and feature some of the fastest graphics chips produced by Nvidia. Both cards pack 10,752 CUDA cores, 78 RT-TFLOPs, 40 Shader-TFLOPs, 320 Tensor-TFLOPs, and 24GB of GDDR6X memory that can deliver a staggering 1TB/s of memory bandwidth.
The biggest difference between the ROG Strix LC and TUF Gaming 3090 Ti cards is the cooling solution. ROG Strix LC comes with a closed-loop liquid cooling system, with a custom-designed cold plate that spans the GPU chip and onboard memory to keep things nice and cool. It also includes a 240mm radiator cooled by a pair of 120mm ARGB fans, and is equipped with a blower-type fan and a low-profile heatsink under the shroud to expel the heat produced by the components inside. ‘food.

ROG Strix LC cards are also equipped with nifty features that should make installing them relatively simple. If you’re someone who regularly forgets to connect your graphics card after inserting it and then you have a panic attack as to why your thousand dollar hardware isn’t working, Asus has fortunately installed an LED light static which gives you a warning if you failed to connect it properly (or at all) or you supply the board with insufficient wattage.
Then there are the two FanConnect II headers that allow you to connect case fans to the GPU for additional cooling under load, a dual-mode BIOS that offers the choice between the fastest cooling performance and clock speed. high, or quieter operation with a small drop in performance. . Of course, both editions of the ROG Strix LC are adorned with customizable RGB LEDs with Aura Sync.
TUF Gaming RTX 3090Ti
The TUF Gaming RTX 3090 Ti, meanwhile, is air-cooled but no slouch, according to Asus. An angular matte black metal shroud covers a massive 3.2-slot heatsink designed to keep the GPU, VRAM, and power circuitry from getting too hot.
This, along with a dedicated memory heatsink for the onboard GDDR6X VRAM and a large cutout in front of the PCB that provides another path for hot air to be expelled, should keep the graphics card from sweating too much in the heat.
The TUF cards are also cooled by a trio of Axial-tech fans that have seen a width increase to 1.5cm to increase static pressure, and all three fans have been given a half-width barrier ring to help it blow. air where it is indeed. Of course, since this is a TUF product, Asus guarantees military-grade capacitors and a 144-hour test regimen for out-of-the-box reliability and long life.
The Asus ROG LC GeForce RTX 3090 Ti OC and Standard editions are almost identical, but for a few differences in their clock speeds. The OC Edition will come with the OC Mode Boost clock speed set to 1980 Mhz and the Gaming Mode Boost clock set to 1950 Mhz, compared to the Standard Edition’s 1890 Mhz and 1860 Mhz, respectively.
The case is similar for the TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3090 Ti OC and Standard editions. The OC Edition includes the OC Mode Boost clock speed at 1950 Mhz and the Gaming Mode Boost clock at 1920 Mhz, while the Standard Edition is set to 1890 Mhz and 1860 Mhz, respectively. All four maps are now available in the region.
