14 Oct 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the GeForce RTX 3090 Galax SG 24GB will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

What FPS performance can the GeForce RTX 3090 Galax SG 24GB get on latest AAA 2020 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 1000 games in todays list.

A GeForce RTX 3090 Galax SG 24GB card at 1080p is predicted to see a strong frame rate when running Grand Theft Auto VI on Ultra - 86 FPS. Lets look at the performance its getting on Phasmophobia which is 136 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Watch Dogs Legion is predicted to perform on this hardware, which gets a strong 121 FPS.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We predict the GeForce RTX 3090 Galax SG 24GB will run the upcoming game Grand Theft Auto VI to a good performance level. Predictions across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 172 FPS, Medium: 136 FPS, High: 91 FPS and Ultra: 65 FPS. Another game tested was Phasmophobia, L: 274FPS, M: 216FPS, H: 145FPS, U: 104FPS. And then we researched potential graphics card performance on Watch Dogs Legion, wih estimates revealing L: 243FPS, M: 191FPS, H: 129FPS, U: 92FPS at 1440p. Running games at 1440p with a GeForce RTX 3090 Galax SG 24GB is more than capable at running this screen resolution. 1440p Ultra across almost all modern games is going to be fairly standard with this GPU. We would consider moving this hardware up to 4K screen resolutions for PC gaming today.

How many years will the GeForce RTX 3090 Galax SG 24GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce RTX 3090 Galax SG 24GB in your PC? This gaming graphics card is not going to need to be replaced for at least 3+ years in any modern gamers PC. Making the GeForce RTX 3090 Galax SG 24GB one of the top choices for gaming PC graphics cards.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce RTX 3090 Galax SG 24GB? There are no graphics cards on the current market that would provide a big enough increase in performance to warrant upgrading the GeForce RTX 3090 Galax SG 24GB.
