Nvidia unveils new high-end graphics cards

Nvidia presented two new graphics cards at its Computex conference. The RTX 3070 Ti and 3080 Ti complete the 30 series.

Nvidia is not stubborn despite the shortage problems that affect the entire tech sector. Since September 2020, Nvidia has launched the GeForce RTX 3090, 3080, 3070, 3060 Ti and 3060, in addition to laptop chips accompanied by a new generation of Max-Q chassis.

After several months of leaks, the American brand is bringing two new stones to its edifice with the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti.

An intermediary between 3080 and 3090

If we go back a bit, let’s remember that Nvidia surprised with the launch of the RTX 3090. This € 1,400 graphics card wanted to have it both ways: to replace the Titan RTX and to be a very powerful GeForce (but very expensive).

With the RTX 3080 Ti, Nvidia is coming back to something more reasonable. The card is placed between the RTX 3080 and the RTX 3090 by focusing more on its performance in video games than the latter.

1.5x the RTX 2080 Ti and 2x the GTX 1080 Ti

More concretely, Nvidia promises that its “new Ti” will offer 1.5x the performance of the RTX 2080 Ti in its time, and 2x the performance of the GTX 1080 Ti in rasterisation, without ray tracing.

To reach this level, Nvidia announces the following characteristics for its new card, still based on the GA102 chip.

As we can see, despite the proximity in the name, we have a clear difference between the RTX 3080 and its Ti model. The latter should be significantly more efficient in the game.

The GeForce RTX 3070 Ti

If the RTX 3080 Ti is the star of the event, Nvidia also presented the RTX 3070 Ti.

This card has the following characteristics.

  • GPU : GA104
  • Cuda Heart: 6144
  • Tensor Heart: 192
  • RT Heart: 48
  • Boost frequency:
  • Memory: 8 GB GDDR6X
  • Memory speed: 19 Gbit / s
  • Memory bus: 256 bits
  • Bandwidth: 608 GB / s
  • TDP:

Pricing and availability

Both graphics cards will be available from June 10, 2021 for $ 1,199 for the RTX 3080 Ti and $ 599 for the RTX 3070 Ti.
