The TUF Gaming GeForce RTX™ 3090 Ti takes an expertly sculpted design and refines it even further. Its trio of Axial-tech fans are 20% taller and feature a half-width barrier ring designed for increased airflow. Additional fan turbulence optimizations keep noise levels down as the GPU dishes out frames, and a stop mode brings fans to a standstill during light usage. Passive cooling also gets a boost by expanding heatsink size, bringing the card’s total width to 3.2-slots. And alongside, a slew of enhancements championed by its award-winning predecessors ensure the TUF is an absolute powerhouse for builders on the hunt for gaming bliss.
TUF Gaming cards leverage our tried-and-true Axial-tech fan design, with three fans working in tandem to satisfy the thermal demands of NVIDIA’s new high-octane design. The fan rotors spin on dual ball fan bearings to ensure consistent performance and increased longevity compared to sleeve bearings and other bearing types.
The two side fans spin counterclockwise to reduce turbulence. And to eliminate unnecessary noise, a stop mode halts all fans when the GPU temp falls below 50 degrees and power consumption is low.
To transfer heat into the fin array efficiently, we use a manufacturing process that improves the surface smoothness of the heatspreader at the microscopic level. The extra flatness allows for better contact with the die, helping to enhance thermal transfer.
The heat spreader wicks heat up into heatpipes that distribute it throughout the fin stack. The increased heatsink size provides more thermal headroom for the new high-performance chipset. This generation of TUF Gaming graphics cards also feature a dedicated heatsink for VRAM to keep temperatures well under maximum operating specs.
Components are selected for TUF Gaming graphics cards based on their durability and performance. In addition to robust chokes and MOSFETs, capacitors that meet military-grade certification make the TUF stand tall amongst the competition. The components are soldered to the PCB using our advanced Auto-Extreme automated manufacturing process. Smooth joints on the rear of the PCB and the elimination of human errors ensure each graphics card meets our rigorous specifications. Finally, to ensure flawless performance when it counts, the cards are subjected to a grueling 144-hour validation trial.

IT’S COOLER OUT BACK
The underside is swathed in a protective metal backplate featuring a wide vent that directs heat towards the airflow of chassis fans. Beneath the GPU, a bracket provides consistent mounting pressure between the die and heat spreader. Stainless steel is used for the I/O bracket to protect ports and provide a more secure mount. And a conveniently placed Dual Bios switch makes it easy to flip between quiet mode or the default performance profile, without requiring software.
The top-side RGB element can be customized to display a range of aesthetic and functional effects that can also be synced with other ASUS components. To fulfill the power demands of the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, one 16-pin connector is present, along with onboard LEDs that light up if PSU PCIe power connectors are not plugged in correctly.
GPU TWEAK II
The ASUS GPU Tweak II utility takes graphics card tuning to the next level. It allows you to tweak critical parameters including GPU core clocks, memory frequency, and voltage settings, with the option to monitor everything in real-time through a customizable on-screen display. Advanced fan control is also included along with many more features to help you get the most out of your graphics card.
