NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 SUPER Graphics Card: The Cancelled Original RTX 3090 Ti

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 SUPER graphics card, which was never officially launched and eventually replaced by the Ti variant, has recently been revealed in new pictures. Rumors of a SUPER variant of the RTX 3090 had been circulating since the initial launch, with gamers and enthusiasts eagerly anticipating either a SUPER or Ti version. However, NVIDIA took a year and a half to release its flagship graphics card under the RTX 3090 Ti branding.

The latest images of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 SUPER graphics card showcase a matte and metallic black aesthetic. It features the same triple-fan cooler as the final “Ti” variant in the Founders Edition design. It seems that the decision to change the naming scheme from “SUPER” to “Ti” occurred very close to the launch, leading to a few weeks of delay.

Images from last year also confirmed the existence of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 SUPER graphics card from different angles. The card boasted similar specifications to the RTX 3090 Ti, including 10752 CUDA cores, 1860 MHz boost speeds, and 24 GB GDDR6X VRAM running across a 384-bit bus at 21 Gbps, offering a total bandwidth of 1008.4 GB/s. The card also shared the same BIOS version as the RTX 3090 Ti Founders Edition, with the only differences being subtle changes to the cooler and the “SUPER” naming.

Although the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti has now been replaced by the GeForce RTX 4090, it is likely that NVIDIA has prototypes and configurations ready for a higher-end “SUPER” or “Ti” variant should there be market demand in the future.
