We knew this moment was coming and finally they are here. Nvidia has unveiled its two new graphics cards, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, which will hit the market on June 3 and June 10, respectively.
The guts of the RTX 3080 Ti feature the GA102-225 graphics chip containing 10240 CUDA Cores, 320 TMUs and Tensor Cores, 112 ROPs and 80 RTs with 12GB for its GDDR6X memory and boasting a bandwidth of 912 GB/s. We’re talking about all of this being a 50% improvement over the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and it’s worth noting that it will need a 750 watt power supply and the card can draw up to 350 watts of power. It will cost $1,199.
On the other hand we have the RTX 3070 Ti, which features the GA104.400 graphics chip with 6144 CUDA Cores, 192 TMUs and Tensor Cores, 96 OPs, 48 RT Cores and 8GB of GDDR6X memory and targets a bandwidth of 608 GB/s. Here we also see extended performance over the RTX 2070 Super by 50%. All starting at $599 later this month.
One of the great assets that Nvidia has is the use of its proprietary technologies. DLSS, enabling performance improvement through artificial intelligence in more than 50 games, or Reflex, which reduces latency, are important features that will be available in these two new GPUs.
For those who are thinking about the possible problems related to cryptocurrency, you can breathe easy. The company announced a few days ago that all cards belonging to the RTX 30 Series would see their mining power limited and the RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti will be no exception.
That said, all this does not seem to offer a favorable scenario for their purchase. The opportunities to get a graphics card for our systems have been a real odyssey in recent months, so we will see how the stock develops in the short term.
