Nvidia has just unveiled new high-end cards for its RTX 30 series on the occasion of the Computex, the RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti. The first will be available from June 3, while it will be necessary to wait until June 10 for the second.
The two new RTX cards will support all of Nvidia’s ray-tracing, DLSS and Reflex technologies. Over 50 games now support DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling), which helps improve game performance using AI.
The 3080 Ti differs from the 3080 by offering more overall performance. Indeed, we find more memory and more cores everywhere (80 RT cores, 10,240 CUDA cores, 320 Tensor cores). The new RTX 3080 Ti is therefore much closer to the RTX 3090, which we were able to test last year.
Indeed, it offers dFeatures very similar to the most premium graphics card in the series, but is satisfied with 12 GB GDDR6X of VRAM, against 24 GB for the RTX 3090. Like its big sister, it will consume 350 W, and should be available for sale from June 3 at an indicative price of $ 1,199.
A new RTX 3070 Ti to compete with AMD’s RX 6800 XT
After the launch of AMD’s Radeon RX 6800 series that we tested, the GeForce RTX 3070 fell below the RX 6800 XT in terms of performance. Although it kept its head with the RTX and DLSS titles, NVIDIA decided it was time to outperform AMD’s Radeon RX 6800 XT with a new Ti card.
According to Nvidia, the RTX 3070 Ti offers 1.5 times more performance than the previous RTX 2070 Super and includes 8 GB of GDDR6X memory. It will offer 6144 CUDA cores, a base clock of 1575 MHz and a peak clock of 1770 MHz. RTX 3070 Ti launches June 10 for $ 599.
Although these new cards are theoretically available from June, they could well be sold in very limited quantities. Due to the current shortage, we can expect very quick stockouts and much higher prices than what was announced today.
