Best Monitors for Nvidia RTX 3090 Graphics Card

The flagship of the GeForce RTX Ampere 30 Series GPUs launched in mid-September, though still plagued by the same stock shortages that troubled the launch of the RTX 3080. Its popularity is not unwarranted, however, since this GPU is capable of the highest graphical processing power available in the consumer market.  

In fact, with the RTX 3090’s GDDR6X VRAM, 2nd generation Ray Tracing cores, and 3rd generation Tensor cores, this GPU outmatches the previous generation flagship RTX Titan heavily. It has 127% more CUDA cores and 120%  more FP32 compute power – all while built on an improved 8 nanometer Samsung processing node.

When it comes to gaming, the RTX Ampere 3090 is capable of processing games at higher resolutions (like 1440p and 4K) and framerates, well above the 120 FPS mark – which at a 4K resolution was previously simply not possible. Now, Nvidia also advertised that the RTX 3090 would be able to process gaming applications at an 8K resolution, but benchmarks carried out by GamersNexus show us that this was simply a marketing ploy, for the RTX 3090 could barely reach framerates around the 30 FPS mark… and quite unstable at that. Of course, this is not an argument for any lack of power from the RTX 3090, as much as it is to say that Nvidia’s marketing department made a preposterous claim.

Still, an 8K monitor would be great for the RTX 3090, as this GPU excels in processing workstation applications. From, photo and video editing, to 3D modeling, this graphics card is an absolute powerhouse. 

To help you display the full power the RTX 3090 is capable of, we’ve compiled a list of the best monitors for the RTX 3090; both for high-end gaming – competitive and AAA single players – as well as professional content creation.

Just from the title alone, you may be thinking: A 1080p monitor for the RTX 3090? Isn’t that resolution way too low for the power of this graphics card? Indeed, it is, but the ASUS ROG Swift PG259QN excels not in resolution, but in framerate.

This 24.5-inch monitor is capable of a refresh rate of 360 Hz, allowing not only for an extremely smooth gaming experience, but also for a significant decrease in end-to-end input lag with the use of Nvidia’s Reflex feature. To display input lag metrics to you in real-time, the PG259QN has an onboard Nvidia Latency Analyzer, so you can see the results that this superior hardware has in your gameplay with your own eyes.

Additionally, the ROG Swift has a fast-IPS panel capable of displaying 1.68 million colors, a W-LED backlight capable of a 400-nit brightness level, and a static contrast ratio of 1,000 to 1. Other features include a full array of ergonomic versatility, a custom heatsink, Nvidia G-Sync & ULMB (Ultra Low Motion Blur), GamePlus, and Aura Sync (for the RGB-lit logo in the back).

For competitive online enthusiasts and professional e-Sports players, this monitor is a must and certainly justifies its $699 price tag.

Screen Size27 Inches

Knowing the capabilities of the RTX 3090, and knowing how it can process games at 4K and 144 Hz consistently, it is naturally enticing to desire a monitor that can maximize the capabilities of this GPU. It must be said that as time goes by and games become more and more demanding, overclocking (or reducing graphical quality settings) may become necessary in order to maintain framerates at such a high resolution.

The best monitor, by far, at the 4K 144 Hz range is the Acer Predator X27. Not only does this 27-inch monitor have Full-Array Local Dimming and Quantum Dot technology, allowing it to reach brightness levels of 1,000 nits, but it also has a low 4ms G2G response time, an input lag of 13ms, and the capability of displaying over one billion colors.

Including two 7-Watt speakers, four USB 3.0 ports (3x downstream 1x upstream), and plenty of Nvidia and Acer features, this monitor validates its $1,299-$1,799 price point. Variations can also be found for as low as $1,192.
