Know These Before You Buy the RTX 4090 or 3090 Graphics Card | iVANKY Blog

Recently, NVIDIA's new cards are on sale one after another. With the same power consumption, the GeForce RTX 4090 has a much higher performance boost than the 30 series. The significant technological advancement has aroused the enthusiasm of many people to buy them. 

You may know that with these graphics cards, you can basically take full advantage of the most cutting-edge 8K and high frame rate 4K technology available today to achieve an upgrade to your gaming or audio/video experience. But do you know how to bring out its full potential? Before you get these new cutting-edge graphics cards, you should get to know these.  

iVANKY has matching HDMI and DisplayLink video cables for you to explore their capabilities.  

 

How to choose the right card for you?  

The new generation RTX 40 series graphics cards feature the new Ada Lovelace architecture. The new architecture is based on TSMC's custom 4nm process with higher transistor integration density and greater scale, meaning significantly higher performance, and efficiency. In addition to substantial performance improvements, the RTX40 series also brings new third-generation RT Core and fourth-generation Tensor Core cores and new DLSS3 technology, etc., and of course, the price is not cheap.

Based on the data of the two graphics cards themselves and a large number of real-world gaming tests, our team agreed that:  

a) If you are an Esports pro, a high-end gamer or gaming YouTuber with a very extreme pursuit of game effects and frame rates, or need to do professional creations such as 3D rendering frequently: buy the RTX 4090.

In these cases, you’d want to enjoy the most cutting-edge technology. When gaming, you can run 4K@144Hz effortlessly, and if you need to do rendering or have frequent access to high-end audio and video, its support for 8K will let you enjoy top efficiency both for work and entertainment.

b) If you are more in pursuit of cost-effectiveness and want to drive some popular PC games, or enjoy some 4K movies and videos as a visual treat: just buy the RTX 3090.

It supports you to edit some everyday videos, drives most of the popular games and 4K video resources, if you are just casual entertaining or vlogging as a hobby rather than a professional creative worker.  

At present, 8K resources are still far from being called universal, and it can be easily surmised that 8K TVs and displays are not the kind of consumer electronics that everyone can afford. (In a nutshell: they're expensive and just not necessary for most people.)

How to give your graphics card a matching pc build to get the most out of it?  

As you know, the RTX 3090 and 4090 are both very powerful graphics cards. If you buy them as an upgrade to your recent graphics card and want to run them with your current PC, chances are you'll need to upgrade your case configuration along with them, and maybe even replace it with a larger case - because the RTX 4090 is so big that a small case may not have enough room reserved for it to be mounted.  

So which accessories are most urgently in need of upgrading? We think they are the CPU, power supply, and video cables.  

 

a) CPU and Motherboard: get the most suitable ones to boost the performance of your new graphics card

If you expect to get your hands on RTX 3090 or 4090 series graphics card, we presume you won't skimp on your budget when choosing a CPU.

You can use the upcoming 13th generation Intel Core with it, and the recommended one will be Intel Core i7-13700K/KF.  

This generation of i7-13700KF already runs at a frequency beyond the i9-12900K/KF, with the same number of cores and extra cache, and can even be seen as an i9-12900KS PLUS. But of course, i9-12900K is a middle-high range choice that can’t go wrong.  

Gaming won't rely on a particularly large number of threads, so even the lower-priced i5-12600KF with six high-performance cores (+4 E cores), runs the RTX 4090 without significant bottlenecks.  But if you have both professional graphics rendering and online gaming needs, you still need to spend a bit more money to upgrade a higher-end CPU.  

 

b) Power Supply: the essential for large energy consumption high-end graphics cards and accessories

The most popular RTX 4090 has a peak power consumption of 600W. The i9-12900K has a full load power consumption of nearly 260W. The maximum power consumption of the graphics card and CPU is 860W. Considering the redundancy and instant power consumption, we recommend using a power supply with a rated power of 1250W to ensure a stable power supply for the platform in one step.

If you use RTX 3090 and a CPU with slightly lower power consumption than 12900K, we still recommend using a power supply with 1000W or more, regardless of the impact of changes in other accessories.  

In addition, with such a bunch of large power consumption stuffed into your computer case, heat is a factor that should not be ignored. The easiest solution is to pair a top-notch water cooling.  

 

c) A Legit Video Cable: ditch your old DisplayPort 1.2 cable

The cable is the most overlooked issue and most likely to affect your gaming audio and video experience.   

You may find that you already have good graphics card and CPU, other configurations are fine, but the refresh rate just won't go up.  

Where might the problem lie? The problem may be the cables that you don't pay much attention to. Maybe you want to output 4K@144Hz, but with a DP 1.2 cable that only supports up to 4K@60Hz. If you want to get enough video signals out in time, then the bridge for them to walk must be wide enough.

A beautiful white look is good, but you still have to live within your means. Every hardware has white hardware at every price point, and if you give up performance for looks, it's not necessary. It's better to stay within your budget and protect the performance of the host before considering the appearance.
