Why it matters: High-end graphics cards have been consuming more and more power in recent years. That’s why manufacturers have to adjust their coolers to keep temperature and noise under control. Zotac has done just that with their latest release.
Zotac’s new RTX 3090 Ti PGF OC is the most robust RTX 3090 Ti model on the market today, featuring a 3.6-slot cooler to keep Nvidia’s latest and greatest GPU in check.
While they measure a massive 73mm thick, the rest of the dimensions are relatively tame. It’s only 309mm tall, making it 4mm shorter than Nvidia’s Founders Edition, while its width is 139mm, 1mm more than the FE.
The PGF OC features a triple-fan cooler with RGB lighting on the shroud and backplate. There is also a cutout in the circuit board for airflow to pass through. To keep this heavy card from sagging, Zotac includes a VGA support bracket in the box, along with a 16-pin to 3 x 8-pin power adapter.
The card has a factory overclocked boost clock of 1890 Mhz, although the default power limit is ‘only’ 450 W, the same as reference designs. There is no mention of the maximum power limit, although it should land around 495W, as is its cousin, the AMP Extreme Holo.
Unfortunately, the Zotac RTX 3090 Ti PGF OC is currently exclusive to China, whose price is still unknown. If you’re looking for an equally sized graphics card to fill your suitcase, check out the Asus RTX 3070 Noctua Edition.
Be sure to check out our review of the RTX 3090 Ti, a card we called fast and stupid because it offered only ~10% more performance than the RTX 3090, while costing 33% more and using ~30% more power.
