For PC gamers looking for the absolute highest level of performance, Nvidia has today announced an even more powerful iteration of its new generation of GPUs: the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3070 Ti. Slated to launch later this week, June 3, prices start at $1,199 for the former, with the RTX 3070 Ti available next week starting at $599.
Both cards are essentially boosted versions of the company’s premier line of GPUs, which were announced last year.
Powered by the NVIDIA Ampere architecture, Nvidia claims the RTX 3080 Ti delivers a leap in performance and fidelity with features such as ray tracing, NVIDIA DLSS performance-boosting AI, NVIDIA Reflex latency-reduction, NVIDIA Broadcast streaming features, and additional memory.
“With RTX such a huge success, gamers, and creators will be thrilled with the performance and features the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti offers,” said Jeff Fisher, senior vice president of the GeForce business unit at Nvidia. “As the new flagship to the RTX family, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is the ultimate upgrade for GPU enthusiasts of any generation.”
For comparison’s sake, the RTX 3080 Ti is 2x faster in traditional rasterization than Nvidia’s still popular GTX 1080ti, and much faster with ray tracing and other cutting-edge gaming features enabled.
The GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, meanwhile, delivers 1.5x more performance over the GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER and 2x the frames per second over the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti, which launched in 2017.
