Nvidia Ampere graphics cards are the real deal, with GeForce RTX 3090, RTX 3080 and RTX 3070 taking the performance ceiling to new heights for PC gamers. Nvidia claims this is the biggest generational leap it has ever made for its GeForce graphics cards. That is no surprise considering RTX 3070 offers more power than the RTX 2080 Ti, and the RTX 3090 is said to be the world's first 8K - capable gaming graphics card. Weve also reviewed NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080, which blew away RTX 2080 Ti. This is the very first graphics card capable of respectable 4K performance, especially with ray tracing activate. New RT and Tensor Cores will also provide performance boost for features such as ray tracing and DLSS, making sure these new GPUs feel like proper next - gen hardware. Were hoping to have our review live for RTX 3090 very soon, but in the meantime, read on for everything you need to know about the new NVIDIA Ampere graphics cards.

Nvidia is allegedly preparing to introduce its next generation family of 7nm graphics cards based on Ampere architecture next year at GTC in late March and is reportedly planning to release RTX 3080 around Computex 2020 in June. There has been a lot of talk in the techsphere lately about NVIDIA's next generation Ampere graphics cards, which was initially sparked by the company allegedly communicating some initial marketing and go - to - market strategy for Ampere. Amd Navi 23 NVIDIA Killer GPU With Hardware Ray Tracing rumor to Launch Next Year According to several rumors floating around, NVIDIA CEO & co - founder Jensen Huang is said to be not in too much of a hurry to bring Ampere to market just yet, largely due to how well position Turing already is in market against competition from AMD. Especially in the high - end segment where the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti sit uncontested. However, with AMD preparing its own alleged NVIDIA Killer high - end Ray Tracing graphics card for next year, team Green is getting ready to preempt red team with Ampere in the first half of 2020. According to Raymond James analyst Chris Caso via HKEPC, NVIDIA has allegedly pushed Ampere back a few months, which is currently in beginning of its ramp. Ampere is now set mainly for announcement at GTC next year in late March. According to Caso, NVIDIA plans to kick off Ampere's introduction with a new datacenter focus AI product first, ie Ampere base TESLA accelerator at GTC. Nvidia Ampere Specs, Performance, Pricing leak - Massively Faster Ray Tracing, Higher Clocks, More vRAM & Lower TDP vs. Turing gaming GeForce RTX 3000 Series graphics cards based on Ampere architecture are said to follow in a couple of months later with Computex 2020 being the target. Roll - out will reportedly begin with the introduction of high - end Ampere graphics cards first and will be gradual with Ampere graphics cards replacing their Turing predecessors over several months. Nvidia is reportedly planning to announce the RTX 3080 in June with a showcase of new graphics cards in or just around Computex in early June of next year. Even though the source doesn't go into details about which specific graphics cards will launch first other than the fact that they will be high - end, from a practical point of view, it's more likely that NVIDIA will introduce RTX 3070 alongside RTX 3080 and ahead of RTX 3080 Ti. This is simply because it's unlikely that the 7nm process will be mature enough to support the introduction of big Ampere at consumer level price point so early in Ampere's life cycle. An Ampere Titan release followed by RTX 3080 Ti later is more likely. Other GeForce 3000 Series graphics cards targeting mid - range such as 3060 and 3050 are expected to follow RTX 3080 and RTX 3070 in a couple of months later in summer. Rtx 3000 Series Ampere graphics cards are rumor to bring substantially better Ray Tracing and rasterization performance.

Nvidia Ampere price

The first three GPUs in the RTX 3000 series have just been announce, alongside their respective price tags, and were happy to report that two - thirds of them are priced competitively. This is great news for consumers. These cards will be hot commodity when they are release, so there's definitely reason for Nvidia to price them even higher than Turing cards. Luckily, and perhaps thanks to AMD, that isnt case here. The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080, which is apparently twice as fast as the RTX 2080, starts at $699 That's $100 less than the price of the RTX 2080 when it was first release. The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070, which apparently is going to be faster than the 2080 Ti, comes in at just $499. So, compared to previous generation,sss it looks like Nvidia is really coming after AMD in terms of rolling out powerful GPUs that are more accessible in pricing. As for the RTX 3090, it is unfortunately poised in the premium range with a hefty price tag of $1 499. Still, considering that Nvidia is calling this the greatest generational jump, and that it's triple slot card that's capable of playing games at 8K, 60fps and is 30 - degrees cooler than Titan RTX, it's not a bad price. Remember, Titan RTX rolled out for $2 499, making the RTX 3090 a whopping $1 000 cheaper and only $300 more than the RTX 2080 Ti.

Nvidia make some ambitious claims about its new RTX 3000 - series cards. First off, it is said that both the RTX 3080 and RTX 3070 are more powerful than the current RTX 2080 Ti. As you can see from the chart below, it is not hard to see how that might be true. The RTX 3080 features 8 704 CUDA Cores, making a 65% leap over the RTX 2080 Super and a 50% increase over the RTX 2080 Ti. It also has more power - hungry card rat at 320 watts versus the standard 250 watts of RTX 2080 Ti and RTX 2080 Super. The Rtx 3080 also features 10GB of GDDR6X memory at 19Gbps, which is as fast as it get. Nvidia said it had collaborated with Micron for G6X video RAM on card, which, according to memory partner, delivers bandwidth of up to 1TB per second. The new Ampere RTX 3080 GPU comes with 30 Shader TFLOPS, up from 11; 58 ray tracing TFLOPS, up from 34; and 238 Tensor TFLOPS, compared to 89. Nvidia is also bundling in its new RTX I / O to help improve game loading times on its GPUs. There are three components in play here for new RTX I / O, including new APIs for fast loading and streaming directly from SSD to GPU memory, GPU lossless decompression, and collaboration with Microsoft for direct storage for Windows. The result of all this, Nvidia claims, is twice the performance of the original RTX 2080. In real - life performance, Nvidia says the RTX 3080 can consistently run games at 60 fps in 4K with RTX turn on, and though performance varies widely across different titles, we find in our review that 4K at 60 fps stays. Even ray tracing in 4K at decent frame rates is possible if you turn on DLSS. Even bigger claims were made about the RTX 3090, which can reportedly play games at 8K at 60 fps. This is done using DLSS 2. 0, of course, rather than native rendering. Rtx 3070, meanwhile, is supposedly 1. 6 times faster than RTX 2070.

Nvidia Ampere performance

Along with GA100 for data center use, NVIDIA has at least three other Ampere GPUs slat to be launched in 2020. There will potentially be as many as three additional Ampere solutions during the coming year, though those are as yet unconfirmed. Here's high - level overview. The biggest and worst GPU is the A100. It has up to 128 SMs and six HBM2 stacks of 8GB each, of which only 108 SMs and five HBM2 stacks are currently enabled in NVIDIA A100. Future variations could have full GPU and RAM configuration. However, GA100 isn't going to be consumer part, just like GP100 and GV100 before it were only for data center and workstation use. Without Ray Tracing hardware, GA100 isn't remotely viable as GeForce Card, never mind the cost of massive die, HBM2, and silicon interposer. Stepping down to consumer models, NVIDIA made some big changes. Nvidia apparently double number of FP32 CUDA Cores per SM, which results in huge gains in Shader Performance. With GA102, NVIDIA has a total of seven GPC clusters, each with 12 SMs, giving a maximum configuration of 84 SMs. Of these, 82 are enabled in RTX 3090 while RTX 3080 only has 68 enable. Hbm2 and silicon interposer are also go, replaced by 24 GDDR6X chips, each running on a 16 - bit half - width interface for 3090, or 10 GDDR6X chips running on a 32 - bit interface for 3080. With doubled CUDA Cores per SM, that equates to 10496 CUDA Cores, with two FP64 capable CUDA Cores per SM. In other words, FP64 Performance is 1 / 64 FP32 Performance. Nvidia stripped out remaining FP64 functionality, and in its place added 2 Generation RT Cores. There are also four 3 Gen Tensor Cores, each of which is four times the throughput per clock of previous Gen Turing Tensor Cores. Boost clock of 1700 MHz gives potential of 35. 7 TFLOPS of FP32 compute Performance, and 19. The 5 GBps GDDR6X delivers 936 GBps of bandwidth. In case that's not clear, potentially the RTX 3090 will have more than double the performance of the RTX 2080 Ti. Considering the RTX 3090 is very nearly full GA102 chip, there's not much room for anything faster right now. Could there be a future Titan Card with fully enabled GA102? Absolutely, but it would only be 2. 4% faster at same clocks as 3090. Maybe 21 GBps Memory would help, but realistically we don't see NVIDIA doing Titan Card For Ampere. Instead, RTX 3090 is an extreme - performance consumer - focused Card, and it's now open for third parties to create custom designs. There's more to it than simple doubling of CUDA Cores, however. Specifically, NVIDIA's Ampere architecture for consumer GPUs now has one set of CUDA Cores that can handle FP32 and INT instructions, and a second set of CUDA Cores that can only do FP32 instructions.

Vital stats

Well, it looks like NVIDIA's next - gen Ampere - base GeForce RTX 3090 is going to be true new performance beast - with leaked images teasing gigantic triple - slot reference GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card. I mean, just look at it. It - It's absolutely huge. We don't know much else from this new leak apart from physical size comparison between Ampere - base GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card against Turing - base GeForce RTX 2080. The second image shows off the back of the card with that fan on the rear of the card, just like the previous leaks tease. Inside, GeForce RTX 3090 should pack an Ampere - base GA102 GPU with at least 5248 CUDA cores and 24GB of next - gen GDDR6X memory. Nvidia is expected to unveil new Ampere - base GeForce RTX 3000 Series graphics cards at its new Special Event on September 1 2020.

Nvidia RTX 3080 release date

The first wave of highly - anticipated 3000 - Series graphics cards has just been launched at Nvidia's September 1 event, somewhat confirming recent rumor alleging that Nvidia will launch three new graphics cards in September. The RTX 3000 flagship, Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080, is going to be available on September 17 to be followed by Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 on September 24. Rtx 3070, which is supposed to replace RTX 2080 Ti, is meant to be released sometime in October, though no official date has been announce. With next - generation consoles like PS5 and Xbox Series X likely launching around November, we certainly expect Nvidia to launch its next - generation GeForce cards around the same time to capitalize on next - gen gaming hype. Once cards are actually out, water cooling should be available immediately for early adopters.

Nvidia RTX 3080 performance

Nvidia is promising big things with its New Generation of Graphics cards. The Geforce RTX 3080 is supposed to deliver twice the performance of the RTX 2080 at the same price. It is even supposed to surpass the RTX 2080 TI, providing solid 4K gaming performance for much less than NVIDIA last - Generation cards cost. This is all while taking advantage of Ray Tracing and NVIDIAs special AI - Power DLSS technology that boost frame rates while maintaining image quality. Nvidia had similar promises before for 4K gaming with RTX 2080. But with RTX 3080, it delivers on them. Rtx 3080 is part of NVIDIA's 3000 Series of Graphics cards, all powered by the company's New Ampere architecture. There's RTX 3070, RTX 3080, and RTX 3090. You can't preorder any of these latest cards, and RTX 3080 will arrive in stores on September 17, with RTX 3090 following on September 24. While RTX 3070 doesn't arrive until October 15, it also promises performance that exceeds both RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 TI. I 've spent the past week putting RTX 3080 through its paces at both 4K and 1440p, and I was impressed with what Ive see. 4k gaming arrives with RTX 2080 TI, but $1 199 was far beyond most people's budgets. Rtx 3080 does the same and more at a much more affordable price point.

Release date and price

Following Nvidias price bump trend from GTX 1000 Series to RTX 2000 Series, it was widely assumed that the RTX 3000 Series would be even more expensive. Expect enthusiast - class was thought to be above $2000 price point and likely closer to $3000. Presume flagship RTX 3090 was thought to take RTX 2080 Ti's position at consumer GPU throne with a likely price point in the range of {matheq}1000-{endmatheq} 1500. Although this guess was correct, it is important to say that RTX 3090 will in fact be enthusiast card, while 3080 will be the flagship. With news of the RTX 3000 Series easily outperforming even Best of Best from 2000 Series, and seeing how there was no mention of this generation Titan card, many are assigning the RTX 3090 as its replacement. Give price of previous generations of Titan cards, if the RTX 3090 is indeed taking its place in market position, this is a tremendous price cut. However, because of that particular reason, there is a strong belief that the Titan card is still coming, but at a later date. On September 1st event, Nvidia's CEO Jensen Huang confirmed that Nvidia's Ampere top model name RTX 3090 will cost $1499. This is some $300 more than last Generation's Best representative RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition, but it's also important to say that these cards are not equally positioned on market, with RTX 3090 being more comparable to Titan RTX. There have also been rumors about the Ampere GPU coming in at a whopping $2000, but that is widely speculated to be a special Edition type card or Ampere Titan variable. There is no confirmation from Nvidia that this card even exists or that it was plan, but some reliable leakers have stuck to their guns regarding this one. The apparent flagship of the Ampere Series will be the RTX 3080 and will cost $699, which is the same level as Turing's RTX 2080 on its launch. Another thing that is extremely interesting is the flagship label. From announcement of previous Generation, RTX 2080 Ti had that position, but at that ludicrous $1200 price point. It appears that AMD's last - Generation undercutting of prices in mid - range didnt really affect Nvidia as they announced that the RTX 3070 will cost $499, same as their last - Generation best mid - range option, RTX 2070. At the bottom of the price range, there is just not a lot of wiggle room. Both companies will release their budget cards one way or other, and the only question that remains is which will be best. So far, theyve been relatively level in that area, but many are hoping that the next generation of GPUs brings another level in the budget category and that we will get even more affordable graphics cards. Important caveat - most of these predictions are largely dependent on AMD's Big Navi.

Rtx 3080 Founders Edition features a new unibody design that is a bit more modest compared to the reflective aluminum of RTX 2000 - series cards. We found the card to be quite classy in our review, with an angular design that features matte, dark grey finish with white backlighting instead of traditional green hue used on prior GeForce cards. Early leak images reveal a very industrial - looking card with a dual - fan design, and they turn out to be accurate. Marking stark departure from older Graphics cards where all fans are align on same side, RTX 3080 will have a fan on each side of the card in an effort to better control the flow of hot and cold air throughout the desktop. Nvidia calls its thermal solution dual axial flow, and says it results in twice the cooling performance of its predecessor. Rtx 3090 uses this same design, only its much larger, As Card utilizes a triple - slot format. Rtx 3070, meanwhile, uses a more traditional dual - fan system. For size comparison, check out the photo below. Rumor mill has been spinning over the new 12 - pin PCIe Power interface system for some of these new cards, and it appears that RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 will make use of low - profile connectors. Companies state that the new connector combines the power of dual 8 - pin connectors in a space - saving design. Rtx 3070, meanwhile, uses just a single eight - pin connector. Port selection includes three HDMI 2. 1 port and DisplayPort 1. 3a. Importantly, HDMI 2. 1 supports variable fresh rate of up to 120Hz at 4K. New OLED TVs have begun to support this new standard, which could open up more options for PC gaming in the living room.
