NVIDIA today unveiled its consumer Ampere graphics cards in the form of the GeForce RTX 3070, 3080, and 3090 with rather palatable price tags.
Traditionally, NVIDIA tweaks the SM every generation, changing the core count, SFUs and/or the arrangement of the shaders.
NVIDIA RTX IO: Enables rapid GPU-based loading and game asset decompression, accelerating input/output performance by up to 100x compared with hard drives and traditional storage APIs.
NVIDIA calls this a “custom” 8nm process but I don’t think the density and efficiency will be any different.
GeForce RTX 3080: Starting at $699, the RTX 3080 will be the next go-to graphics card for 4K enthusiasts and gamers.
Featuring 10GB of GDDR6X memory running at 19Gbps, the RTX 3080 is supposed to be 80-90% faster than the RTX 2080 and around 30-40% faster than the RTX 2080 Ti.
GeForce RTX 3090: At the very top, we have the RTX 3090, priced at $1,499. »
