RTX 3080

The 21 day count down is finally over and Nvidia has released there new line up of RTX GPU’s. The hype was worth it after months and months of speculation. Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang announce the new Flag ship RTX 3080 GPU. With a huge performance jump from the RTX 2080 and at a price point that will put a smile on faces. So Lets go over what we have in store.

The new RTX 3080 will have double the performance of the previous 2080 series. while starting at $699 with the first set of graphics cards going on sale September 17th. This is on par with the pricing for the original RTX 2080. Giving us a increase in performance this is no price increase. The RTX 3080 will have 8704 Cuda Cores and 10 GB VRAM.

The RTX 3070 will have more power then the current RTX 2080 Ti while starting at only $499. Which is a huge leap forward for there lower end of the release. The performance at this price point for anyone without a RTX 2080 Ti is going to make this card there biggest seller. Leading Haung to quote.

“Pascal friends: It is safe to update”

The RTX 3070 will have 5888 Cuda cores and 8 GB of VRAM with memory clock speed of 16 GBPS GDDR 6 all at half the price of a 2080 Ti :P.

nVidea also announced the release of the RTX. 3090 the high end GPU that comes in at a whopping $1,499. and is due for release on September 24. Suppose to be able to run 8K gaming at 60 FPS. with over 10K Cuda cores and 24 GB memory.

Obviously nVidea is claiming alot about the new power these amphere cards have and we won’t know anything until there is come proper bench marking is done.

Here is a quick over of the specs for each card:

For as long as I can remember, I had always had an interest in computers and games. It all started with the SNES and moving on to the Playstation 1. Eventually this passion evolved into PC gaming. With playing my first competitive game being Battlefield 2142 and then moving into COD4 Promod. I have always been a keen PC builder and enthusiast but couldn’t afford to go after this passion until later in life.
