After numerous leaks and rumours, NVIDIA officially revealed the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti during Computex 2021, available from June 10th.
RTX 3080 Ti Specs and Price
The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti will officially start retailing for $1199 from June 3, although, with the current situations with scalpers, PCMR enthusiasts will most likely have to pony up more from their pocket for it.
NVIDIA claims that the 3080 Ti offers 2X the performance of the GTX 1080 Ti in games using traditional rendering techniques. The new flagship will ship with 12 GB of GDDR6X memory, proving the previous rumours to be true. This is slightly more than the 11 GB found in the RTX 2080 Ti. Compared to every graphics card in AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 lineup, the NVIDIA cards have significantly less memory, but they make up for it with extra features such as NVIDIA Broadcast, CUDA support in apps and of course, everyone’s favourite DLSS.
Here’s some sweet 4K Doom Eternal action, with ray-tracing enabled after the newest update, running on an RTX 3080 Ti.
RTX 3070 Ti Specs and Price
The GeForce RTX 3070 Ti will supposedly provide a 1.5X performance improvement over the RTX 2070 Super, which was already a bumped-up version of the base RTX 2070. The card will ship with 8 GB GDDR6X memory, which is the same as its smaller brothers – the RTX 3060 Ti and 3070, although the 3060 Ti doesn’t have GDDR6X memory. The RTX 3070 Ti will retail for $599, with availability starting June 10.
During NVIDIA’s Computex showcase, a host of announcements regarding support for DLSS and RTX in new games were announced, chief of them being Red Dead Redemption 2 getting DLSS support.
