NVIDIA unveils GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, new flagship gaming GPU

NVIDIA unveiled two additions to the GeForce RTX family – the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3070 Ti – at Computex in Taiwan.

The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is the company’s new flagship card for gaming, running games 2X faster than the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti and 1.5X faster than the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti at 4K. And the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti supercharges NVIDIA’s most popular RTX 30 Series GPU with more CUDA Cores and G6X memory, making it 1.5X faster than the previous-gen GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER.

The new Ti models offer a substantial improvement in terms of power and performance. Powered by the NVIDIA Ampere architecture, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti sports 12 GB of superfast GDDR6X memory and is running 10,240 CUDA (processor) cores, up from 8,704. It features 3rd gen Tensor Cores for amazing DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) performance boosts, 2nd gen RT Cores to accelerate ray tracing, and the latest streaming multiprocessors to turbocharge traditional games. Meanwhile, the RTX 3070 Ti has 8 GB of memory (the same as its predecessor) and 6,144 cores, up from 5,888.

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.”

The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is a gaming powerhouse that also brings lower latency for better responsiveness and a competitive edge to the games millions of people are playing today.

The RTX 3080 Ti will be available worldwide on June 3, starting at $1,199, with the RTX 3070 Ti available next week starting at $599.
