Nvidia: RTX 3080 Ti & RTX 3070 Ti officially presented


After there have been rumors about the new graphics cards from Nvidia in recent weeks, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and the RTX 3070 Ti were now officially presented at the Computex event. Nvidia has also revealed the release dates. While the RTX 3080 Ti will go on sale on June 3, those interested in the RTX 3070 Ti will have to wait for the graphics card until June 10, 2021.

As with the already released GPUs of the RTX series the new models will probably be extremely difficult to come by again. The Founders Edition of the RTX 3080 Ti will be priced at $ 1,199. The graphics card has many similarities to the current flagship - the RTX 3090 - but with 12GB it offers a little less GDDR6X memory. Compared to the standard model, the RTX 3070 Ti has now also been equipped with the faster GDDR6X memory (8GB) and is thus between the RTX 3080 and RTX 3070 in terms of performance. The Founders Edition of the Ti variant will cost 599 US dollars. In Germany, the recommended retail price of the two GPUs will probably be 1,249 euros (RTX 3080 Ti) and 619 euros (RTX 3070 Ti).

Custom models of the graphics cards will also be available on the two release dates . Here, too, you have to be very fast if you want to grab one of the GPUs. Due to the current shortage of chips, manufacturers such as Nvidia, AMD, Sony or Microsoft can only produce extremely limited quantities of their graphics cards or next-gen consoles at the moment.

Nvidia's Latest Flagship Graphics Card Is The $1,200 RXT 3080 Ti

On sale June 3 for a suggested retail price of $1,199, the RTX 3080 Ti is here to make older Nvidia cards look like hot garbage in comparison. Too pricey? The RTX 3070 Ti goes on sale next week for only $599.

You know the cycle by now. Nvidia released the vanilla 3080 and 3070 cards last September and October respectively. Now it’s time for the Ti versions, a step up from the non-Ti cards, for folks who like a little extra oomph, or people who need to be on the cutting edge even though the slightly older stuff is cheaper and nearly as effective.

If you’ve got an older card, say a 1080 Ti or a 2080 Ti, Nvidia has provided the following graph to demonstrate how much your card sucks now.

The RTX 3080 Ti is powered by 34 Shader-TeraFLOPS, 67 RT-TeraFLOPS, 273 Tensor-TeraFLOPS, a 384-bit memory interface, and 12GB of GDDR6X. The RTX 3070 Ti has less, which is why it costs half as much.

Both cards support all the latest graphical bells and whistles, from the all-important ray tracing to Nvidia’s own graphics-enhancing tech, like the impressive DLSS performance-boosting AI.

Of course, these prices depend on availability, so expect to pay a lot more if you have to get one on the secondary market. I’d like to imagine these will be widely available, much more so than the original RTC 3080 and 3070 cards, but I like to imagine lots of pleasant things that don’t happen.
