Nvidia just announced its next generation of graphics cards, the RTX line from 3070 to 3090 based on the new Ampere architecture.
The announcement was made during a Geforce Special Event presentation hosted on the company’s Twitch channel.
The new cards will be based on the Ampere RTX architecture.
Below you can see a comparison with Turing, claiming performance multiplied by 1.9 in FPS per watt.
The new flagship GPU is the RTX 3080, equipped with the new Flowthrough cooling solution that can cool 90 watts more than the cooling solution used by the previous Turing architecture.
It claims to provide twice the performance of 2080 at the same price, which will be $699, and it will be released on September 17.
The RTX 3070 is faster than the 2080ti and will launch in October. It’ll be priced at $499.
The RTX 3090 is a “giant GPU” priced at $1499 and Nvidia claims it can run games at 60 FPS in 8k.
The company also announced Nvidia Reflex which claims to drop reaction times by roughly half, and Nvidia Broadcast to support streaming. Both will come in September.
Nvidia Omniverse Machinima will enter beta in October allowing players to create their own videos by importing assets from games.
