South Korean manufacturer Emtek introduced the flagship graphics accelerator GeForce RTX 3090, the main feature of which is a cooling system using a tangential fan. This is not the first flagship graphics card in this performance. We have previously seen the ASUS Turbo, Gigabyte Turbo, MSI Aero and Galax Classic models.
The graphics accelerator Emtek GeForce RTX 3090 Blower Edition is equipped with a dual-slot cooling system. The dimensions of the video card are 268.6 × 112 × 38.5 mm. The appearance of the novelty is complemented by a “cast” casing of the bronze-colored cooling system and a rear reinforcing plate of the same color, which performs the function of cooling the second stack of memory chips located on the rear side of the board. The CO cooling elements include a large aluminum radiator with a copper evaporation chamber and one small 72 mm centrifugal fan.
The Emtek GeForce RTX 3090 Blower Edition is based on an NVIDIA GA102 chip with 10,496 CUDA cores and 24 GB of GDDR6X video memory with an effective frequency of 19.5 GHz. The GPU and memory power subsystem consists of 18 phases. The specifications of the new items do not indicate the base frequency of the GPU. The manufacturer only reports the Boost frequency, which is 1695 MHz, which is equivalent to the Founders Edition video card.
At first glance, the GeForce RTX 3090 Blower Edition PCB has a reference design. However, its uniqueness gives out an additional “island”, to which two 8-pin connectors for additional power have moved. Recall that the reference version of the graphics accelerator uses one proprietary 12-pin connector located in the central upper part of the board. The manufacturer did not change the maximum power consumption of the video card, so it is rated at 350 watts. For work, it is recommended to use a good power supply with a capacity of 750 watts.
The set of external video interfaces is non-standard – one HDMI 2.1 and three DisplayPort 1.4a. With this configuration, you can connect up to four monitors with 4K resolution or up to two with 8K resolution to the video card.
On the local market, the Emtek GeForce RTX 3090 Blower Edition is priced at KRW 2,797,000, which is approximately $ 2,500. The price is definitely overpriced, but these are the realities of the current market. Most non-reference versions of the GeForce RTX 3090 are offered for about that much.
