At NVIDIA's GeForce event on 1st September, they announced three cards to introduce the 30 Series; the 3070, the 3080, and the 3090.

But the biggest shock of the event was the announcement of the 3090. Touted as the first '8K GPU', it looks like a monster, both in size and in price, but if you want the best of the best, this GPU looks to be the one to buy.

NVIDIA have had their 'Titan' cards for a few years now, showcasing their flagship features at a high price, and it doesn't look to stop here.

With that, here's the official details on the NVIDIA 3090's specs and features...
