Items tagged with geforce rtx 3070

Yesterday, we brought you news that a 20GB version of the GeForce RTX 3080 is likely on the way, doubling the amount of onboard GDDR6X that is in currently-shipping cards. The news came straight from the horse's mouth, NVIDIA, via an Ampere GA102 GPU architecture whitepaper. Now we're getting further confirmation via one of NVIDIA's trusted OEM partners: Gigabyte. The company is currently running a promotion, which was first spotted by Videocardz, where those that purchase a GeForce RTX 3080 card can get a free copy of Watch Dogs Legion by entering in their purchase details and device serial number on its website. This is pretty standard fare for graphics card manufacturers, but... Read more...
The recently announced GeForce RTX 3070 will launch to retail on October 15, 2020, at precisely 6:00 am PT (9:00 am ET), NVIDIA has announced. Previously, NVIDIA only said the card would be out in October, but had not mentioned an exact date (or time). Now it has, and it is not a coincidence that availability comes almost two weeks before AMD plans to announce its Radeon RX 6000 series. A lot of PC gamers will be upgrading their GPUs this year. Anticipation is high for NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 30 lineup, particularly the GeForce RTX 3080 (which it is pitching as its flagship consumer card, whereas the GeForce RTX 3090 is primarily intended for creators) and GeForce RTX 3070. Both seemingly offer... Read more...
Earlier this week, we learned about the inevitable expansion of NVIDIA’s new Ampere gaming card lineup at the lower-end. At the time, it was rumored that NVIDIA was cooking up either a GeForce RTX 3060 Ti or a GeForce RTX 3060 Super; we’re now learning that the product will launch with the former name. As we previously reported, the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti is said to be based on the GA104-200 GPU, and will have a total of 4,864 CUDA cores with 8GB of GDDR6 memory. New details coming in, however, claim that the GPU will feature 152 Tensor cores and 38 RT cores. For comparison, the GeForce RTX 3070 has 5,888 CUDA cores, 184 Tensor cores, and 46 RT cores. We already knew that the... Read more...
Even though none of NVIDIA's newly launched GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards are actually available to buy right now, retailers have begun preparing for when they will be, by going live with product listings. Over on Newegg, for example, there are more than a dozen GeForce RTX 3090 and GeForce RTX 3070 listings. If you are planning to upgrade, you can make things easier by tracking availability with a handy monitoring tool You can do that easy enough through NowInStock.net, a free web service that monitors online retailer sites to see when products come in stock or go up for pre-order. Not just graphics cards or electronics, either, but an assortment of goods—even hand soap. Here are... Read more...
NVIDIA laid down the hammer last week when it announced its Ampere family of gaming cards. Although details of the cards had been rumored for months, the actual generational performance uplift of the three-card family is nothing less than impressive.  During its virtual event, NVIDIA announced the GeForce RTX 3070, GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3090 priced at $499, $699, and $1,499 respectively. While the price of the GeForce RTX 3090 is beyond the means of most mainstream gamers, the GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3070 are definitely more approachable. The GeForce 3070 in particular has the potential to be an incredibly popular choice with gamers when it launches next month. Looking... Read more...

There overview provided will lay the foundation from some of the deeper details presented here – and the pictures of the cards and Jensen’s... Read more...
It is fair to say that as far as launch events go, NVIDIA's high-anticipated GeForce RTX 30 series reveal was a hit. NVIDIA announced a trio of Ampere cards for the consumer sector—GeForce RTX 3090, GeForce RTX 3080, and GeForce RTX 3070—with specs and somewhat pleasantly surprising prices. It also left the door open for some questions, several of which it addressed in a follow-up question and answer session on Reddit. Several members of NVIDIA's community team coordinated with Reddit to make this happen. Questions were posed to the forum on September 1, and then answers were posted the next day, after NVIDIA had a chance to review them and extract information from the appropriate... Read more...
The prevailing fear leading up to the launch of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 30 series was that pricing would get jacked way up, so it was a pleasant surprise to see the GeForce RTX 3070 debut at $499, with NVIDIA claiming it bests a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. On top of that, NVIDIA has announced a GeForce RTX 30 series bundle with some nice extras. Yes, "extras," as in plural. There are precisely two—for a limited time, NVIDIA is gifting a digital download code for Watch Dogs: Legion and including a full year of a GeForce NOW Founders membership to people who purchase a qualifying GeForce RTX 30 series. Watch Dogs: Legion is not out yet, but is slated to release on October 29, 2020. Pricing starts at... Read more...

It's been a long time coming, but we're less than 24 hours away from the big launch of NVIDIA's next-generation GeForce RTX 30 Series family of graphics cards, aka Ampere. It's been roughly two years since NVIDIA launched Turing, which at the time were GPU monsters delivering massive gains in performance over their Pascal-based predecessors. Can NVIDIA do it again with Ampere? If you want to find out, NVIDIA will be hosting its virtual launch event today at 12pm EST. At this time, NVIDIA has only provided a link to its Twitch channel as the official way of viewing the stream. It's likely that NVIDIA will also provide a YouTube livestream as well, and we'll update this article with that link if... Read more...
We’re still more than a few days away from NVIDIA’s planned unveil for its GeForce RTX 30 Series of Ampere graphics cards, but it appears that one of the company’s OEM partners just couldn’t wait to spill the beans. That fortunate [or unfortunate depending on how you want to look at it] company is Zotac, which leaked its entire lineup consisting of GeForce RTX 3070, RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 graphics cards. The first hints of the leak came from momomo_us, who posted a Zotac page with the product names listed, but without any images filled in. Since that time, the floodgates have opened and numerous images of the graphics cards have been discovered. The... Read more...
The big day is just around the corner—on Tuesday, September 1, NVIDIA will hold a GeForce Special Event in which it is expected to reveal all the juicy details about its upcoming GeForce RTX graphics cards, based on Ampere. We have questions, and NVIDIA presumably has answer. Perhaps spoiling some of the surprises, however, supposed specifications of the next-gen stack have leaked out. Of course, there have been a million and one leaks and rumors up to this point already, and not all of them align. In theory, though, the closer we get to launch, the more accurate the information should be. But there's also been chatter that NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang makes decisions at the final hour, so take...

It will probably be another month (hopefully) or two (hopefully sooner) before NVIDIA officially lifts the curtain on its next round of GeForce RTX graphics cards, based on its newest Ampere GPU architecture. In the meantime, the leak and rumor scene continues to buzz. The latest supposed leak claims to detail the specifications for two upcoming models, the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti and GeForce RTX 3070. Ampere itself is already official. NVIDIA formally introduced the part in May for the high-performance computing (HPC) market, in the form of the A100. That part boasts 54 billion transistors, 6,912 FP32 CUDA cores, 432 Tensor cores, and 108 streaming multiprocessors, along with 40GB of HMBe2 memory.... Read more...
