RTX 3090 Ti Delivers Surprising Results When Limited to 300W

NVIDIA’s new RTX 3090 Ti graphics cards are astonishing with their price. On the other hand, when the power of the card is limited to 300W, it apparently turns into one of the most efficient GPUs in the Ampere architecture. recent Igor’sLab In the review, an MSI Suprim X RTX 3090 Ti, whose power is limited to only 300W, was tested. The results are surprising.

The GeForce RTX 3090 Ti reference model comes with a 450W limit, taking consumer-grade power consumption to another dimension. In certain special cooled graphics cards, it can reach up to 550W. In other words, even if the RTX 3090 Ti is the fastest gaming card on the planet, it still falls short when it comes to efficiency.

So what happens if we limit the power of the RTX 3090 Ti? Igor rolled up his sleeves to see this and the results are truly impressive. In this process, the power limit is set to 300W when using MSI Afterburner. While adjusting the frequency speeds, the VF setting was used.

In comparison, similar Suprim X versions of the RTX 3080 10GB/12GB, RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3090 were tested to get everything balanced, as all of MSI’s Suprim X models are factory overclocked. On the AMD side, the overclocked RX 6800 XT and RX 6900 XT Gaming X versions were used.

Restricted RTX 3090 Ti Performance

The performance of the power-limited RTX 3090 Ti is nearly identical to the Suprim X RTX 3080 Ti in all games. The RTX 3090 Ti averaged 96.3 FPS, and when it came to the RTX 3080 Ti, it averaged 97.7 FPS. But the power consumption between the two cards is very different.

The RTX 3090 Ti drew a maximum of 314 watts at its peak, while the RTX 3080 Ti reached as much as 409W. This represents an almost 30% improvement in power efficiency for the RTX 3090 Ti. On the other hand, the restricted RTX 3090 Ti (300W) achieved better gaming performance than the Radeon RX 6800 XT (319W) and managed to outdo the 16% difference. Similarly, the RTX 3080 10GB drew 351 watts but was 11% weaker than the 3090 Ti, which was capped at 300W.
