The colorful $4,999 RTX 3090 card is an overclocker’s dream
Qicai recently launched iGame GeForce RTX 3090 9-segment, It not only retails for US$4,999, but is also limited to 1,000 units. Please note that this is the actual suggested retail price of the graphics card, not the scalper price.Bilibili content creator Two cake automatic control I have obtained a sample evaluation to see if Colorful’s exclusive graphics card is worth the king’s ransom.in Her video, This is Mandarin Chinese, she can make the card reach an impressive 2,010 MHz, 310 MHz faster than the genuine RTX 3090.
iGame GeForce RTX 3090 Kudan competes in a small niche market where you can also find Galax GeForce RTX 3090 HOF or EVGA GeForce RTX 3090 K | NGP | N versionThese over-designed graphics cards are aimed at serious overclockers or just hardcore enthusiasts with very strong financial resources who want a faster graphics card than the graphics card. Best graphics card Or the top entry GPU benchmarking hierarchy..
In terms of stock performance, iGame GeForce RTX 3090 Kudan is only slightly faster than Colorful’s own iGame GeForce RTX 3090 Vulcan OC. The small increment is not surprising, because the iGame GeForce RTX 3090 Kudan only has the advantage of a 75 MHz boost clock. However, overclocking is the strength of iGame GeForce RTX 3090 Kudan.
The iGame GeForce RTX 3090 Kudan is equipped with a powerful 14+8+4 phase power supply subsystem. However, it seems that Colorful just recycled Vulcan’s PCB for Kudan. Three 8-pin PCIe power connectors ensure that Kuda gets all the power it needs.
In contrast, Galax GeForce RTX 3090 HOF also uses a 14+8+4 design, so it is in the same position as iGame GeForce RTX 3090 Kudan. The EVGA GeForce RTX 3090 K|NGP|N version has a slight disadvantage when it only has a 23-phase power subsystem. Of course, the quality of the power stage is equally important. Neither Galax nor Color lists the power levels used by their respective graphics cards. In the case of EVGA, the GeForce RTX 3090 K|NGP|N version uses the MPS MP86956 power stage with a rated current of 60A.
Colorful has set the thermal limit of iGame GeForce RTX 3090 Kudan to 500W. This is 43% higher than NVIDIA’s reference specification (150W) GeForce RTX 3090. With these graphics cards for overclocking, the thermal limit is meaningless because there are always Floating firmware after modification Increase the threshold to 1000W.
Given its cooling margin and powerful power supply subsystem, iGame GeForce RTX 3090 Kudan should please any overclocker if you have five big spares.
