NVIDIA have finally took the wraps off the RTX 30 series, which will handle next-gen games.
The line up consists of the NVIDIA RTX 3090, 3080, and 3070, with no Ti version revealed at launch. They are all based on the new Ampere architecture and will have big upgrades in rasterize and ray-tracing.
We don’t have a Ti version, but NVIDIA is giving us the RTX 3090 as its new flagship GPU. NVIDIA claims that it boasts 50% better performance than the Titan RTX, 2x better than the RTX 2080 Ti.
NVIDIA also claims it can do 8K resolution gaming at 60fps on “many top games”. We won’t be surprised if it indeed can, considering the hardware inside it.
The NVIDIA RTX 3090 is rigged with a faster 24GB of GDDR6X memory. There’s a triple slot design that has dual axial fans, which NVIDIA claims is 10x quieter and 30-degrees cooler than the Titan.
With all that power, don’t be surprised that the RTX 3090 has a whopping price of USD1,499 (around Php72,800). Selling starts at September 24, 2020.
Next stop, we have the NVIDIA RTX 3080, which is 2x more powerful than the regular RTX 2080. It has 10GB of GDDR6X RAM at 19Gbps speeds and can consistently deliver 4K at 60fps gaming.
It has a more reasonable price of USD699 (around Php33,900) and will be available on September 17.
Lastly, we have the NVIDIA RTX 3070. It may be the most basic model, but the company boldly claims it’s faster than the RTX 2080 Ti.
It comes with 8GB GDDR6 memory for 4K and 1440p gaming. It has an official price of USD499 (around Php24,200) and will be available in October.
Meanwhile, the NVIDIA RTX 3090, 3080, and 3070 release in the Philippines is yet to be announced. So be on the lookout for that.
