NVidia unveiled its new RTX 30 series of graphics cards overnight: the RTX 3070, the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090.
Available across September and October, here’s what to expect and when:
The new 30 series GPUs will be releasing in September and October and will cost as follows:
- GeForce RTX 3070: $499 USD, $809 AUD, £469, €499 (October)
- GeForce RTX 3080: $699 USD, $1,139 AUD, £649, €699 (September 17)
- GeForce RTX 3090: Starting at $1499 USD, $2,429 AUD, £1399, €1499 (September 24)
The new RTX 3070 offers better performance than NVidia’s current powerhouse, the RTX 2080 Ti, with the 30 series offering up an improved, dedicated ray-tracing core in each. The RTX 3080 is positioned as the high-end flagship offering, outputting twice the performance than NVidia’s current RTX 2080. Finally, the RTX 3090 is this generation’s Titan (but not in name), a three-slot behemoth that’s meant for more than gaming, also requiring a minimum 750W power supply.
