A modded BIOS for the RTX 3090 Allows you to bring the power limit to 890W

While already one of the most powerful consumer graphics cards on the consumer market, the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti can further increase its performance by unlocking its full potential thanks to a modified BIOS. In fact, generally the flagship of the NVIDIA Ampere family can consume up to 450W, but, thanks to a modified BIOS coming from an ASUS GeForce RTX 3090 Ti ROG Strix LC it is possible to bring the power limit up to 890 Watts, as evidenced by the message posted by @Zed_Wang on Twitter.

The file in question is freely downloadable from the TechPowerUp library and, although it has been designed only for the ASUS video cards of the TUF, Strix LC and RTX 3090 Ti Founders Edition lines, it can also be installed on other products, of course taking all the risks involved. In any case, given the power limit more than doubled compared to the "standard" one, this BIOS must be used with great caution, as by exaggerating it is possible to overload the power subsystem and cause damage to the GPU if the dissipation system is not up to it. of the situation.

Furthermore, we remind you that the 16-pin connector has been certified for 600W; therefore, it is not possible to get 890W to the card in this way (although there are some models, designed for overclocking such as the Kingpin or Hall Of Fame, equipped with 2 connectors). For these reasons, this BIOS will be useful mainly to the most advanced overclockers who cool their GPUs with liquid nitrogen and therefore can benefit from higher power limits to reach new frequency and performance records.| ); }
A few days ago, we reported that the TweakTown guys tested both an MSI RTX 3090 Ti Suprim X and an ASUS ROG Strix LC 3090 Ti OC Edition in order to see how far it was possible to push the GDDR6X memory speed in order to maximize mining performance. For more details about it, we suggest you to read our previous dedicated article.
