The RTX 3090 is designed for what NVIDIA calls “top gamers”, with 10496 CUDA cores and 24GB of excellent GDDR6X memory. It is also suitable for “creators who create and render movies” or 8K games-as long as you are one of the few who own an 8K TV. It also said that compared to the RTX 3080, you will only see a 10% to 15% performance improvement, but the price has to double, that is, $1,500, and the price is $700.
However, this is unlikely to deter buyers who want to buy and flip cards for profit-in fact, high prices and apologies may bring more demand. After all, when the RTX 3080 Founders Edition went on sale, it sold out immediately and started appearing on eBay at crazy prices.
