NVIDIA seems to be having some trouble with their GeForce RTX 3090 Ti flagship graphics card which has reportedly been hit with a wide range of issues ranging from design to supply. But it looks like the card could be entering its final phase of production once again.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti Founders Edition Graphics Card Could Utilize The PG136C PCB

As spotted by Harukaze5719, NVIDIA has recently submitted a new graphics card PCB known as PG136C to the EEC. We know that the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Founders Edition is based on the PG136 PCB but the new one seems to be a different variant. We don't know what the 'C' stands for but it is very likely that the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti Founders Edition could be utilizing this PCB and based on its publication date over at EEC, which is 7th February, it looks like this could be the final version that will be heading out to retail.

Now the standard GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card came in two PCB flavors. The Founders Edition uses the PG136 PCB which is mentioned above and the reference variant that is shipped to AIBs is based on the PG133 variant. The GeForce RTX 3090 Ti would also get different variants for the FE & AIB specific models so we can expect PG136C for FE and PG133C for reference models though that isn't confirmed yet.

The reason that a new PCB is required for the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti is very simple. The GeForce RTX 3090 Ti is going to be a powerhouse of a graphics card, featuring a 450W TDP & dual-capacity video memory (2 GB per module vs 1 GB per module). The graphics card will also be amongst the first to utilize the 16-Pin PCIe Gen 5 power connector and as such, you can tell why the changes had to be made.

Although we have been hearing about several problems with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti card, it was never made clear if the issues were with the Founders Edition, the AIB models, or both. AIBs were asked to halt the production of their graphics cards so it is likely that both PCB variants were affected but I guess that's something we won't know for sure until more info is dug out. With that said, GAINWARD has also submitted its GeForce RTX 3090 Ti graphics card to the EEC making it the latest AIB to have their custom lineup submitted.
