Recently, NVIDIA has announced the arrival of the GeForce RTX 30 Series. At a virtual event, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang unveiled the latest GeForce RTX 30 series of graphics cards including the RTX 3090 and RTX 3080. We have come to know that the new RTX 30series is going to provide twice the performance and power efficiency of its predecessors (GeForce RTX 20 series).
GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3090 will introduce Nvidia’s second-gen RTX ray-tracing cores, GDDR6X memory, and faster AI processing. They are based on the NVIDIA Ampere microarchitecture. It’s the moment for which all the gamers were waiting for. To know more about the new features, price range and availability of the RTX 30 series, stay with us till the end of this article.
Features of GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3090:
GeForce RTX 30 series has brought advanced technologies for esports competitors, live streamers, creators, and gamers alike. It will be huge with packs of 30 shader-teraflops (TFLOPS), 58 ray-tracing TFLops and 239 Tensor-TFLOPS. According to NVIDIA, GeForce RTX 3080 can be called as the “World’s fastest graphics memory.” It has 10 GDDR6X VRAM that can perform at a whopping speed of 760GB per second. It features faster 2nd gen Ray Tracing hardware which will enhance your gaming experience with immersive lighting and shadows in your favorite games.
GeForce RTX 3080 can be three times quieter during heating gaming sessions because of the thermal-optimized design that promises 55% more airflow and 30% more efficiency. It will have 8,780 Nvidia CUDA cores (parallel processors) and a boost clock speed of 1.71GHz. Nvidia has claimed that the graphic card can handle 4K gaming at 60 fps, which is a good boast but less than what GeForce RTX 3090 offers.
GeForce RTX 3090 is a powerful beast of a GPU. It has 24GB of GDDR6X, a 384-bit memory interface, and a memory speed of 19.5Gbps. It also supports 10,496 CUDA cores and a boost clock speed of 1,700MHz. If you have access to an 8k display, then GeForce RTX 3090 is going to be a boon for you. It can efficiently run games at 8K and, 60 frames per second with second-generation ray-tracing cores and third-gen Tensor cores.
The GeForce RTX 3090 provides a smooth ray-tracing technology with the help of deep learning supersampling (DLSS). With so many high-end technologies, GeForce RTX 3090 is huge in size. It has a three-slot dual-axial, flow-through design and its own silencer. It performs up to 30 degrees Celsius cooler and 10 times quieter than RTX Titian. So, don’t expect the RTX 30 series to be easy on your pocket.
