Nvidia announces new RTX 3090, 3080, and 3070 graphics cards
Nvidia today announced its next generation RTX 30 series of graphics cards. Based on the new Ampere architecture, the three new cards being announced today — the RTX 3090, RTX 3080, and the RTX 3070 — claim big improvements in rasterized and ray traced 3D rendering.
The RTX 3090 is the new flagship graphics card in this lineup, which will be taking over the mantle from the Titan RTX. The RTX 3090 boasts 50% improved performance over the Titan RTX and even claims to do 8K at 60fps "across many top games".
The RTX 3090 has 24GB of GDDR6X memory, same capacity as the Titan RTX but faster. It also has a new triple slot design with dual axial fans that claims to be 10x quieter and runs 30 degrees cooler than the Titan RTX.
The RTX 3090 is priced at an eye-watering $1499, which is more expensive than the launch price of the $1299 RTX 2080 Ti. However, it is cheaper than the $2499 launch price of the Titan RTX. It will be available starting September 24.
Next is the RTX 3080 a.k.a the practical flagship for most people. With this card, Nvidia is promising up to 2x performance improvement over the RTX 2080 (the regular one, not the Super). It features 10GB of the new and improved GDDR6X memory running at 19Gbps and Nvidia claims this card can do 4K 60fps consistently.
