In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 KFA2 EX Gamer White 24GB are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Super Max-Q.

The RTX 3090 has a 480 MHz higher core clock speed and 160 more Texture Mapping Units than the RTX 2070. This results in the RTX 3090 providing 302.4 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The RTX 3090 has a 480 MHz higher core clock speed and 32 more Render Output Units than the RTX 2070. This results in the RTX 3090 providing 75.9 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The RTX 3090 was released less than a year after the RTX 2070, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The RTX 3090 has 16384 MB more video memory than the RTX 2070, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The RTX 2070 has 448 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RTX 3090, which means that the memory performance of the RTX 2070 is massively better than the RTX 3090.

The GeForce RTX 3090 KFA2 EX Gamer White 24GB has 10496 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce RTX 2070 Super Max-Q has 2560. However, the actual shader performance of the RTX 3090 is 18263 and the actual shader performance of the RTX 2070 is 2957. The RTX 3090 having 15306 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RTX 3090 delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RTX 2070.

The RTX 3090 transistor size technology is 4 nm (nanometers) smaller than the RTX 2070. This means that the RTX 3090 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the RTX 2070.

The GeForce RTX 3090 KFA2 EX Gamer White 24GB requires 350 Watts to run and the GeForce RTX 2070 Super Max-Q requires 80 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 750 Watts for the RTX 3090. The RTX 3090 requires 270 Watts more than the RTX 2070 to run. The difference is significant enough that the RTX 3090 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RTX 2070.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview The GeForce RTX 3090 KFA2 EX Gamer White 24GB is the top RTX 30 Series graphics card and considered an Enthusiast graphics card based on the Ampere architecture. Architecture The Ampere architecture represents a process shrink down to 7nm compared to 12nm Turing. The Ampere architecture provides the world's next consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. GPU It equips a GPU Codenamed Ampere GA102 which has 5120 Shader Processing Units, 320 TMUs, and 96 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1520MHz and goes up to 1740MHz in Boost mode. It also has 610 Tensor Cores for AI purposes and 72 RT Cores for real-time ray-tracing. Memory The GPU accesses a 24GB frame buffer of second-gen GDDR6X memory through a 384-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 350W, it requires at least a 750W PSU with two 8-pin power connectors. System Suggestions The GeForce RTX 3090 KFA2 EX Gamer White 24GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a top-End Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.Overview The GeForce RTX 2070 Super Max-Q card is a high-end RTX 20 Series graphics card for laptops and considered an enthusiast graphics card based on the Turing GPU architecture. Architecture It equips a Turing GPU Codenamed TU104 which is a First Gen Turing GPU and has 40 SM activated, offering 2560 Shader Processing Units, 160 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. It also has 320 Tensor Cores for AI purposes. GPU The TU106 GPU used in the GeForce RTX 2070 Super Max-Q is clocked lower than the regular RTX 2070 Super Mobile version, leading to a slight reduction in game performance. The standard model has a base clock speed of 1215 MHz and a boost clock speed of 1440 MHz whereas this 2070 Super Max-Q has a clock speed of 930 MHz and a boost clock speed of 1155 MHz. Memory The GPU accesses an 8GB frame buffer of first-gen GDDR6 memory through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1750MHz. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 80-90W the RTX 2070 Super Max-Q is not as power hungry as the full fat mobile version but will still reduce battery gameplay hours if pushed to max power capacity. System Suggestions GeForce RTX 2070 Super Max-Q is capable of resolutions all the way up to 4K (3840x2160) but is probably more suited to 1440p displays. We recommend a high-end processor and 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.
