Another GeForce RTX 30 Series launch from NVIDIA means another exercise in frustration for gamers. We had a chance to review NVIDIA's latest mid-range GeForce RTX 3070 Ti Founders Edition yesterday and came away generally impressed with its performance. But, unfortunately, things aren't looking good for enthusiasts that want a chance to sample this bit of gaming goodness. We decided to do a quick check at the usual online retail suspects for selling graphics cards, including Best Buy and Newegg. Best Buy only has two GeForce RTX 3070 Ti cards on the books: NVIDIA's Founders Edition and the ASUS TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3070 Ti. Things don't look too out of the ordinary with the Founders Edition,... Read more...
After an official unveiling at Computex 2021 and last week’s launch of the powerful GeForce RT 3080 Ti, NVIDIA is ready to go open kimono and spill all of the new, more-mainstream GeForce RTX 3070 Ti’s juicy details. Cards are due to go on sale tomorrow, but we’ve been able to put a GeForce RTX 3070 Ti Founders Edition through its paces and have everything laid out for you on the pages ahead. As its branding suggests, the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is an update / upgrade over the original RTX 3070 which launched about seven months ago. NVIDIA didn’t just goose the clocks and call it day, however. Though its performance isn’t otherworldly versus the original standard card,... Read more...
The cards have been leaked over and over for the past few months, but now they're official. We're, of course, talking about the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti and GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. These are the latest entries in NVIDIA's growing Ampere gaming family and promise to deliver even greater performance than their GeForce RTX 3070 and RTX 3080 counterparts. NVIDIA describes the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti as "The new flagship gaming GPU of the GeForce RTX family," although we wonder where this leaves the GeForce RTX 3090. As such, the official specs match what's been roaming around in the recent rumor mill. That means 10,240 CUDA cores, 80 RT cores, 320 texture units, and 112 ROPs. NVIDIA is quoting a maximum boost...

Yesterday, we brought you some rather outrageous pricing for GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics cards from Gigabyte and MSI courtesy of LambdaTek. The UK retailer’s pricing started at £1,534 ($2,200) for the Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Eagle and only went up from there. That same retailer has updated its GPU pricing to include several GeForce RTX 3070 Ti graphics cards. Unfortunately, we're still witnessing sticker shock with this latest crop of cards. LambdaTek currently has three GeForce RTX 3070 Ti cards on sale; all of which come from MSI: MSI GeForce RTX 3070 Ti Ventus 3X 8G OC: £1,285 MSI GeForce RTX 3070 Ti Gaming X Trio 8G: £1,380 MSI GeForce RTX 3070 Ti Suprim X 8G:...

When it comes to the new GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, the proverbial cat is out of the bag. For the last week, it's been rumored that NVIDIA would launch its latest and greatest Ampere cards during a keynote event at [virtual] Computex 2021. Today, NVIDIA pretty much confirmed that information. The official NVIDIA GeForce Twitter account this morning tweeted "Get Ready" with a short teaser clip (which doesn't give us any glimpses of the cards, unfortunately). However, the clip confirms that the GeForce keynote will occur at 10 pm EST on May 31st and will be streamed live via YouTube and Twitch. Earlier this month, NVIDIA announced that its second revision of GeForce RTX 30 Series... Read more...
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3070 Ti are perhaps two of the worst kept secrets in the gaming hardware realm. The two Ampere SKUs have been rumored for months, and recently, we've been able to pin down exact announcement and launch windows for both cards. Now, it looks as though Razer's Chinese arm has jumped the gun by making the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti available in its preconfigured desktop systems. Systems are currently available for preorder on Razer's official store on the Tmall e-commerce platform. The listings were first discovered by @harukaze5719 on Twitter. There are multiple configurations available, including an AMD Ryzen 9 5900X system with 16GB of DDR4-3200... Read more...
Earlier this week, we brought you the news that the upcoming GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3070 Ti will likely be announced at Computex 2021 on May 31st. Given the lingering effects of COVID-19, the NVIDIA keynote will take place virtually, rather than being held in person. We now have new information regarding the rollout of the two new Ampere graphics cards. While both cards will be revealed on May 31st, their rollouts will be staggered by one week. The review embargo for the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is alleged to lift on June 2nd, while cards will be available for sale the following day, June 3rd. The GeForce RTX 3070 Ti review embargo is rumored to lift on June 9th, with an on-sale date... Read more...
Rumors have been swirling around the upcoming GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti for weeks. Although we have a good idea of what to expect from these gaming cards, the official handoff from NVIDIA will likely take place later this month at Computex 2021. NVIDIA today announced that it would hold a digital keynote event on May 31st at 10:00 PM PDT. The executive keynote is entitled "The Transformational Power of Accelerated Computing, From Gaming to the Enterprise Data Center" and will be spearheaded by Jeff Fisher and Manuvir Das. Fisher's presence is the most critical for the enthusiast community, as he is the Senior Vice President for NVIDIA's GeForce unit. In other words, Fisher the perfect... Read more...
It seems you will have to wait a little bit longer to not be able to buy an upcoming Ti variant of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3080 and 3070 graphics cards. Rumor has it NVIDIA pushed back the launch of both cards. It's only a delay of around a couple of weeks, and for what reason, only NVIDIA knows. Not that it really matters in the grand scheme of things. Why is that? Well, we're certainly looking forward to NVIDIA fleshing out its Ampere lineup with faster versions of its existing cards, stamped with the "Ti" moniker. But the landscape being what it is right now—silicon shortage, scalpers and bots, cryptocurrency mining—most gamers inevitably will strike out trying to buy one, like every... Read more...
In recent days, we've heard increasing rumors that NVIDIA will release a new revision GeForce RTX 30 Series "GAxx2" GPUs that feature an enhanced cryptocurrency mining limiter. Today with the release of the GeForce 466.24 driver, NVIDIA confirmed those rumors surrounding a mid-May launch. If you look at the release notes for the GeForce 466.24 driver, you'll find the following passage: "This driver updates the hash limiter for the GeForce RTX 3060 12GB and is required for product shipped starting mid-May." The folks at VideoCardz dug deeper into the new driver and discovered that the latest revision of the GeForce RTX 3060, which will carry the GA106-302 GPU, has a unique Device ID. While the...

The consensus on the internet seems to be that the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3070 Ti will be arriving relatively shortly on the consumer market. However, these new cards won't just bring increased gaming performance compared to the GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3070, respectively; they will also deliver at least two new features. This new round of alleged GAxx2 GPUs will have a revised version of the cryptocurrency mining limiter (which halved Ethereum hash rates) in place, as we've discussed on several occasions. NVIDIA's first-generation crypto limiter introduced with the GeForce RTX 3060 is easily bypassed. Ethereum miners first fooled the limiter using a beta driver provided... Read more...
It's been just over six months since NVIDIA first launched the GeForce RTX 30 Series to much acclaim. The graphics cards offer excellent all-around performance and have been popular with gamers and crypto miners alike (for better or worse when it comes to supply). Although many of us can't get our hands on the current family of GeForce RTX 30 cards (at MSRP), NVIDIA is already well along in its plans to launch an Ampere refresh. We've already heard quite a bit about the upcoming GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, but NVIDIA is also reportedly readying the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti. The current GeForce RTX 3070 has 5888 CUDA cores, a base clock of 1.5GHz, a boost clock of 1.73GHz, and 8GB of GDDR6 memory. The upcoming... Read more...
So far within NVIDIA's Ampere lineup, it has released precisely one "Ti" SKU, that being the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti (which incidentally arrived ahead of the regular GeForce RTX 3060). Are more coming? Without a doubt, and rumor has it a GeForce RTX 3070 Ti with two different memory configurations (8GB and 16GB) is in the works. Before we get to that, let's recap the regular GeForce RTX 3070. It sports 46 stream multiprocessors (SMs) for a total of 5,888 CUDA cores, along with 184 Tensor cores, 46 RT cores, 184 texture units, 96 ROPs, and 8GB of GDDR6 memory shuttling data through a 256-bit bus, delivering 448GB/s of memory bandwidth. As for clock speeds, it has a 1,500MHz base clock, 1,725MHz boost... Read more...
Ampere is starting to stretch out its legs and get comfortable on the desktop, with a relatively steady stream of models getting retail releases. It started with the GeForce RTX 3080, which launched in September, followed by the GeForce RTX 3090 later that same month. Then came the GeForce RTX 3070 in October, and a bit of a surprise entry earlier this month, the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti. So, what comes next? Better retail availability, we hope. But when you have a shortage of chips and, on top of it all, one of your add-in board (AIB) partners reports that a truckload of GeForce RTX 3090 cards worth in the neighborhood of $340,000 up and vanish, well, it creates a frustrating situation for consumers,...

Gaming enthusiasts around the globe are waiting to see what AMD has up its sleeves with the Radeon RX 6000 family of graphics cards. But it's not just enthusiasts that are eager to see what AMD has in store; long-time rival NVIDIA is likely looking to adjust its product strategy -- if necessary -- to counter whatever is announced this week. Such is the case with a new report from hardware sleuth/leaker kopite7kimii, who has suggested that NVIDIA is working on a new version of the GA102 GPU that would slot in between the GeForce RTX 3070 and the GeForce RTX 3080. This would of course either be the long-rumored GeForce RTX 3070 Ti/Super. More specifically, as we mentioned last week,... Read more...
Could NVIDIA be cooking up a GeForce RTX 3070 Ti graphics card, possibly to disrupt AMD's upcoming Radeon RX 6000 series launch? Well sure, it could be, but is such a move actually plausible? The answer to that question is also 'yes', if you are willing to put stock in a rumoring suggesting NVIDIA is readying a new variant of its GA102 GPU. The GA102 is based on Ampere, and is what powers NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3090 (GA102-300-A1) and GeForce RTX 3080 (GA102-200-KD-A1) graphics cards, in the consumer space. Both of those cards are out now, at least technically—finding one in stock at a retailer at MSRP is next to impossible, and demand will likely outstrip supply into next year. Interestingly,...

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...
