After the official launch of the Nvidia RTX 30 graphics card at the beginning of this week, there were (in total) three major omissions at the event. So, if you have been looking to upgrade, now seems like a fairly good time to do so.
There's still a lot we don't know about all the hardware coming out this year, but Nvidia's confirmed specs give us a lot more to go on. In titles like Quake 2 and Control, getting 60FPS at 4K high preset with RTX on was very very hard and you'd need a costly RTX 2080 Ti to achieve that, however, RTX 3080 with new DLSS 2.0 can deliver up to +92.3% better performance.More news: Covid-19: Five new cases, total in NZ now 116
In addition to being able to run games at higher framerates, Nvidia's latest RTX 3080 should also be better able to handle monitors with faster refresh rates. GeForce RTX 3080 will become available first on September 17 for $700.
The uncertainty surrounding the yield of Samsung's 8nm process is the reason why the stocks for Nvidia RTX 3080 and 3090 will be very less this year. With more than double the price than Nvidia RTX 3080, Nvidia RTX 3090 provides double the features too. For those unfamiliar with these increasingly popular buzzwords, ray tracing refers to the technology to render light, shadows, and reflections in more vibrant and realistic ways - much like you would see in movie CGI - that's fast becoming available for more and more games as next gen approaches.More news: Several boats sink during Trump boat parade in Texas
The following footage was captured live, according to Nvidia, with all graphical settings maxed out at 4K resolution.
Nvidia RTX 3080 and 3090, both provide an incredible gaming experience. This beast of a card comes with the top-tier compute performance you'd expect, boasting 24GB of GDDR6X memory, an enormous cooler, and a $1,499 price tag to match - but hey, if you've got the money to afford the giant 8K TV Nvidia wants you to play on, what's another $1,500 for a graphics card? That's a bit like comparing apples and oranges, and with so many details still under wraps, it's like the oranges are wearing invisibility cloaks.More news: Ex-Italy PM Berlusconi admitted to hospital; Tested positive for coronavirus
