Nvidia has unveiled its new graphics cards- the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti. The 3080 Ti, which is the one that’s the main new flagship card, boasts 12GB of GDDR6X memory and 10240 CUDA cores. It’s twice as fast as the 1080 Ti, and 1.5X faster than the 2080 Ti at 4K. Launching on June 3, it’s going to be priced at $1,199.
Meanwhile, the 3070 Ti improves upon the original 3070 with a boost in CUDA cores (number at 6144), while the memory also sees improvements with GDDR6X as opposed to the GDDR6 memory of the original (though there’s still 8 GB of it). It is 1.5X faster than the RTX 2070 Super, and twice as fast as the 1070 Ti. The 3070 Ti is launching on June 10 for $599.
You can check out a detailed breakdown of their specs below.
|Specs||GeForce RTX 3070 Ti||GeForce RTX 3080 Ti|
|Boost Clock||1.58GHz / 1.77GHz||1.37GHz / 1.67GHz|
|Memory||8GB GDDR6X||12GB GDDR6X|
Last year’s 30 Series cards suffered from crippling stock shortages at launch (they still are, in fact), so it’s very likely that the new cards are also going to be hard to get upon release and for a few months afterwards.
To go along with these announcements, Nvidia has also announced upcoming visual and performance updates for various games, including Red Dead Redemption 2, Rainbow Six Siege, The Ascent, DOOM Eternal, and more.
